  • Baum, one of Colombia's most famous clubs, has shut its doors after almost seven years. The Bogotá spot, which opened in 2013, was forced out by residential developments. Over the years, more than 800 flats have sprung up around the venue. Last weekend's closing party ran for 36 hours, with dozens of local artists sharing the bill, including Owldisco, Sonico and Baum CEO, Hernán Cayetano. "The tree has grown tall and we have branched out from small club shows into massive events and festivals," Cayetano told Resident Advisor via email. "The project has certainly contributed to the scene in Colombia with longevity. Many great moments have been shared under the branches and memories we will never forget. BAUM wrote an important chapter in the history of electronic music in Bogotá. The raves will continue, just at new locations and with alternated formats." In addition to Baum club, the team ran two festivals: Baum Festival in Bogotá and Baum Park in Medellín, both of which will continue.
