ABOUT THIS EVENT
The Bus Party Organization was started in Amsterdam in 1996 by Debra Mitchell as a vehicle to bring English dj John OO Fleming to The Netherlands. Borrowing the name from the philosophy of ’60’s Merry Pranksters, w/ approval of Ken Kesey, The Bus got running Sat 2 March ’96 at Amsterdam’s Catacomben.
Sat 9 Aug ’96, after just 3 small parties, The Bus made their Paradiso V.I.P. Club debut headlined by Dave Randall, having made his Netherlands debut 20 Apr ’96 on The Bus at Catacomben. The Bus celebrated their 1-yr anniversary at Paradiso, their 3rd Paradiso party in little more than 6 months, with John OO Fleming.
In total The Bus has done 14 full Paradiso parties with international djs such as Billy Nasty, Fabio Paras, Steve Thomas, Devilfish…local heros JP, Angelo, Paul Jay, Cellie, Gino, Misja…and introduced newcomers Bart Skils & Steven de Peven. Also responsible for memorable parties at the Church of Ruigoord, Mazzo, and various squats, (working w/ Radical Rehousing), The Bus has travelled to Denmark with Het Amsterdam Ballongezelschap to organize parties.
In 2001 Ken Kesey passed on, and Debra took a back seat in the party world, having lost her mentor. Now after an overhaul, The Bus is back. With monthly parties at Frisco Inn, parties at Cue Bar, as well as Paradiso and Pand 14, The Bus is now in talks with some of Holland’s biggest festival organizers.
