Who we are?
BACKDOOR is the new and much improved version of the well-known 'Original Backdoor Tea-Dance'. The granddaddy of today's BACKDOOR: it was once a Sunday evening dance-event with local dj's, chocolate, fresh fruit, and a teapot full of vodka! We've taken the best of the Tea-dance and changed Saturday nights forever.
BACKDOOR Amsterdam is a celebration of all things good in our community and in our nightlife. We wanted our party to generate an all-inclusive openminded LGBT+ atmosphere, where everybody feels equally welcome ....... where all sides of our community unite: the circuit pro's and the nerds, the queers, gym rats and the drag queens. Lesbian lovers and hipster toy-boys. Where normal is simply a back-up plan. They come together and get comfortable together. Our performers, and dancers give their very best. Every single time. The stage is yours when they take a break. Dance all night long to the hypnotic rhythms of our international deejays. BACKDOOR Amsterdam has something for everyone.
BACKDOOR Amsterdam is simply over-the-top productions in a beautiful city center venue with an amazingly creative team working together to produce high-quality events with the best International DJ’s that keep you on your feet until the early hours. Our visitors come from all over the world bringing their diverse cultural backgrounds to the dance floor in a common theme of love, acceptance and respect. It's is this international diversity on the dancefloor which allows for a fusion of cultures and discovery. We can truly say, some great international relations begin at BACKDOOR. Together, let's take that door into the early morning light.
