THE NIGHT ACADEMY is an annual gathering where nightlife creators from across the world meet over seven days to exchange skills, knowledge and creativity.
Nomadic, collaborative and hands-on by nature it is always hosted by an local community and venue.
The program consists of multiple creative master classes, a nightlife conference and last but not least a 24 hour electronic music festival to top it all off!
The Night Academy 2023 will be the first of hopefully many international gatherings where people from all walks of nightlife meet to exchange both practical and theoretical knowledge. This all takes place in a hands-on environment and is done in a way that directly benefits both the hosting venue and the local night life culture as whole.
The entire project spans over 6 days in May with the educational program taking place on the weekdays.
On the weekend Fri-Sat a 2-day international nightlife conference will take place where both local and international speakers and invited participants partake.
The Saturday also features the culmination event of the week in the form of the 24 hour “WHY24?” festival where some of the fruits of the week’s collaborations are shared with the wider world.
