- All proceeds from this year's tournament will go to the Netherlands branch of climate movement Extinction Rebellion.
Resident Advisor and De School are teaming up for another edition of the RA Cup during this year's Amsterdam Dance Event.
The charity four-a-side tournament will go down on Thursday, October 17th, at the renowned club, with 16 teams competing for the cup. RA's and De School's teams will be joined by groups repping electronic music jobs board Doors Open, Berlin booking agency Odd Fantastic, Berlin Atonal, Zenker Brothers' Ilian Tape label, Helsinki's Post Bar, Berlin club Renate and Tbilisi venue Bassiani.
The Netherlands will be represented by teams from Dekmantel, Rush Hour, Clone, Redlight Radio, PIP Den Haag, Zwart Goud and last year's champions, Garage Noord.
As always, the RA Cup is for a good cause, with all of this year's proceeds going towards the Netherlands branch of climate movement Extinction Rebellion. Entry, which is open to the public, is a €5 donation.
We're also putting on something totally new this year: a Playstation FIFA tournament with prizes. Sign up to compete in that here.
The RA Cup will run from 2-9 PM, and spectators will be able to take in the highs and lows of each match pitch-side. The De School cafe will be open for food and drinks, and we'll be streaming the matches there so you can keep up with the tournament and your ADE meetings. De School will also have the barbecue going all day.
Before kickoff, come down to De School early for an RA Exchange and Doors Open discussion about the future of the work in electronic music. shesaid.so founder Andreea Magdalina and RA's Staff Development Manager Mike Zinkiewich will be speaking on themes such as mental health, diversity, work and life balance, sustainability and more.
Your can donate to Extinction Rebellion NL here. All amounts, however small, are welcome.
