Oud & Opnieuw 2018

Amsterdam, December 11, 2018

Legendary! Oud & Opnieuw… you did it again! Drink, rave, Happy New Year! kiss, repeat! The tenth annual groundhog-newyears day fest from our buddies at Buutvrij for life broke all records and broke down Paradiso Amsterdam.

Traditionally WINK merely produces this infamous countdown-champagne debauchery, but this anniversary edition we stepped up our game, and created our own Wink’s Wunderbar in the Paradiso dressing rooms; access all areas baby, with, a.o. the Speakeasy Spit or Swallow Oyster Saloon, the WANNABEASTAR inyourface personal punkrock pandemonium, the Showpony Glitter & Gore Dressingroom, the Mr Gasoline Massage Parlor, the Club Tropicana Bingo with MC Buttslammer… and then some… it was grand! “Nothing is True, Everything is Permitted.”

Eternal gratitude to Buutvrij for setting us free, and to WANNABEASTAR, Merlijn Amaro, Frans Schnabel & friends, MC Buttslammer, Bas Andrea, Josje Showpony, Coen Aerts aka Le Directeur aka Mr Gasoline, Jackson Rumajin, Sarah Vos, a special high five for our own Mathias for managing this extra monumental & messy edition… and all wild and wonderful winkers for this midweek hangover to remember! All in all… a really bad idea; let’s do it again next year… oh yeah, some pics; check out this mess…
