From the beginning in 1968 audiences were dancing to live music at Paradiso. Back then, Paradiso was closed during the night and until the beginning of the eighties there was no real club culture in The Netherlands. In 1982 DJ Eddy de Clerq started the change with his Pep Club dance nights. This legendary club night led to the rise of house music and culture in the late eighties and lots of other dance parties in Paradiso that offered a home to nightflies. Halfway through the nineties Paradiso had some regular club nights, meant to offer the visitors of concerts an opportunity to stay longer. With their regular Friday night party called Vip Club, Paradiso was the first live music podium to function as a club. Soon after they started the ever so popular Noodlanding! party that still takes place every Thursday night. Ten years after this Paradiso hosts five club nights a week. Besides the regular night, some extremely hyped-up parties take place a couple of times a year. Paradiso's mission is to offer more than live music, always explore the borders of pop culture and be a podium for non-musical initiatives and projects. Sometimes you'll see a fashion show, a movie, a modern classical ensemble or a science lecture about belief systems or quantum information. Throughout the years they have developed regularly returning projects, they have formed foundations to develop events in and outside of Paradiso and have linked external cultural organisations closely to them.
