BACKDOOR began in 2015 as “The Original Backdoor Teadance“. A cosy Sunday afternoon LGBT dance event in Club Abe in the center of Amsterdam with space on the dance floor for 250 party people. The teadance was a fun crazy party where we poured vodka from a tea cup, and guests dined on cakes and chocolates.
We grew hard and fast and in 2018 the Original Backdoor Teadance became “BACKDOOR“. We moved to the ultra modern pop venue Melkweg, and the Sunday teadance gave way to all-night parties on Saturdays from 10pm – 6 am.
Nowadays BACKDOOR is one of the best gay parties amsterdam and it takes place 4 to 5 times per year. Twice a year in the main hall at Melkweg with 1500 international party people from the entire LGBT+ spectrum. Expect the sexiest go-go dancers, performance art, drag queens, hedonistic fun, and always a mix of the best international DJ’s of the moment.
