  • A former atomic bunker housing music studios, offices and an Intergalactic FM station in The Hague, Netherlands will close on July 1st. The building, which had the informal nickname Schenk (named for the Schenkweg square where it's located), housed the offices for The Crave Festival, an agency and studio space for the likes of I-F, Gamma Intel and 543FF. A representative from the space told RA that "the bunker's canteen area had evolved into a meeting place for both internationally established artists and local talent alike. An abundance of existing equipment was made available, workshops given and jam sessions organised. This pooling of artists and their resources led to the formation of a booking agency followed shortly after by the launch of ONDERWERELD Radio on the renowned Intergalactic FM platform." The building has been "assigned a new purpose" and must be vacated by July 1st. The space's organizers are currently on the hunt for a new location, but in the meantime ONDERWERELD will run one last broadcast from the bunker which will run for at least 36 hours. I-F, Beau Wanzer, Intergalactic Gary, Traxx, Hellboii, Nick Klein, Unit Moebius, Pasiphae, Mad Miran, Gamma Intel, Dazion and more are among those set to play on the livestream, which starts at 12 PM Wednesday. The marathon radio show will air on Intergalactic FM's ONDERWERELD station.
