Diynamic Music will return to Amsterdam on Thursday October 15th for a special Diynamic Showcase: The Amsterdam Dance Event 2015 Edition with the whole Diynamic Family, including Solomun, Adriatique, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, H.O.S.H., Stimming, Karmon, NTFO, Thyladomid, Ost & Kjex, Magdalena, Johannes Brecht, DJ Phono, Undercatt and Roberto Calzetta & Twin Soul, will take place at Mediahaven, a film studio complex with three areas and near perfect acoustics.

The Hamburg based label brings back their annual Diynamic Showcase to Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE). It is already a beloved tradition for the Diynamic family to come to the Dutch capital in October; bringing their full artist roster, including long standing figures as well as some fresh faces to add to the mix, so there will be a few premieres at this year’s event. It is always a very special date, to which all artists look forward throughout the whole year: a family reunion, where everyone prepares special sets to showcase the very best they have to offer.

On ADE Thursday, October 15th, Diynamic will be kicking off this year’s ADE events at Loveland’s exclusive venue “Mediahaven”. It is usually a state of the art film studio located at waterfront with a beautiful view of the harbour. Mediahaven is a three-room-connected location with first-class facilities that Diynamic has inaugurated last year, and the 2015 edition will be even more refined. Two modern studios with up to 12-metre high ceilings, designed as an amphitheatre, plus an underground car park in the basement with a very grungy warehouse feel to it. One of the best features of Mediahaven is its brilliant acoustics; enhanced by the lack of any sound restrictions whatsoever you can prepare for an amazing sound experience!

Mediahaven is easy to reach, located nearby the city centre and just ten minutes by bike from Amsterdam central station.

The finest of Diynamic Music will return to Amsterdam:
–      Solomun, who is about to finish his 21 event lasting “Solomun +1” residency at Pacha Ibiza
–      Adriatique, who conquered Ibiza’s heart with their residencies for Circoloco at DC-10 and our very own Diynamic Outdoor events this season

–      Magdalena who has made a big leap forward from last year, playing all around the globe at places such as Burning Man, Chicago, Brooklyn, Ibiza, Berlin, Dubai, Bali or Mumbai, to name just a few.
–      Johannes Brecht (live), the latest addition to the Diynamic Music roster, known for his elaborate productions, but mostly as the producer of Henrik Schwarz’s latest album “Instruments”

Registrations open for Beach Soccer Tournament between police and international students

Registrations are now open for the upcoming round-robin Beach Soccer Tournament set to take place between police and international students next month.

To take part, students must register online ahead of the tournament, which will be hosted by the Eastern Beaches Local Area Command at Coogee Beach from 8.30am, on Sunday 27 September 2015.

Major Sponsors include Study NSW, Department of Premier & Cabinet, and Randwick City Council, and the event is also supported by Multicultural NSW.

The tournament will see police and international students celebrate multiculturalism in Australia while enjoying the world game.

Students from Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, the Philippines, India, Africa, Europe and the Middle East, who are studying at schools, TAFE colleges, English language colleges, universities and other educational institutions in NSW, will represent their country during the competition.

The tournament will also feature police from Local Area Commands across Sydney, as well as the Hunter and Illawarra, building on relationships with students from their local educational institutions.

The community are welcome to come and join in the fun; the event is free and there will be a number of cultural and police displays, as well as a selection of international food stalls and live entertainment.

A major trophy will also be awarded to the country with the loudest and proudest supporter base on the day.

Corporate Sponsor for the Safety of International Students, Detective Superintendent Gavin Dengate said the event, now in its third year at Coogee, is growing in popularity each year.

“The event is really about celebrating diversity, with students representing at least 15 countries from Asia, South America, and for the first time Europe and the Middle East, coming together for this year’s competition,” Det Supt Dengate said.

“Soccer, the world game, is a terrific way to celebrate different cultures while promoting social awareness and inclusion.

“The tournament also offers a great opportunity for police to interact with students, help them feel welcome in their new community and work toward stronger relationships of support and trust,” Det Supt Dengate said.

“I encourage any international students who wish to participate in the event to register online – it promises to be an exciting day.”

Registrations for student players close on Monday 14 September 2015, which can be made by emailing

Students are asked to provide their name, their educational institution and country of origin, when registering for the competition.

Motorists and residents reminded of changed traffic conditions for City2Surf

Motorists and residents are reminded of changes to traffic conditions in Sydney’s CBD and Eastern Suburbs for this weekend’s City2Surf.

More than 80,000 people have registered to take part in one of the world’s largest runs from the city to Bondi Beach on Sunday (9 August 2015).

Police will launch Operation Northcove to ensure the safety and security of City2Surf participants, spectators and volunteers, and minimise the impact of the event of the community.

The high-visibility operation will be in place at the start and finish areas and along the race route, and involves officers from across Central Metropolitan Region, Traffic and Highway Patrol Command, Dog Unit, Mounted Unit, and Police Transport Command.

Operation Northcove Commander, Superintendent Allan Sicard, said police and other Government agencies have been working closely with event organisers to ensure a safe and secure event.

“City2Surf has been one of Sydney’s favourite winter events for more than 40 years and our priority is to ensure it is safe for the tens of thousands of runners this year,” Supt Sicard said.

“There will be significant road closures in Sydney’s CBD and throughout the Eastern Suburbs, but we are striving to minimise the impact on residents and the wider community.

“There will be road closures from 3.30am in Sydney’s CBD at the start lines on College, William, and Park Streets, and from 4.30am on Macquarie Street and Prince Albert and St James Roads.

“The roads on the rest of the race route through to Bondi Beach will close from 7am.”

The route follows William Street to New South Head Road; right onto Old South Head Road; left into Military Road and onto Campbell Parade; and left into Queen Elizabeth Drive, before finishing at Bondi Beach.

Roads should start reopening in the CBD, Kings Cross, Darlinghurst and Edgecliff about midday, while all other roads in the Eastern Suburbs will remain closed until 4pm.

City2Surf participants and spectators are also reminded Bondi Beach and Bondi Park are alcohol-prohibited areas, which will be enforced by police.

“In addition, we will have officers in around the finish line at Bondi throughout the day to reduce the risk of anti-social behaviour and alcohol-related crime,” Supt Sicard said.

Motorists are also reminded to carefully check signage before parking their car – particularly late on Saturday night.

“Special event clearways will be in place in the CBD between 1am and midday and between 1am and 4pm in the Eastern Suburbs on Sunday,” Supt Sicard said.

“Vehicles left in special event clearways – even those with local parking permits – will be towed and fees apply.”

For all special event traffic information, including road closures, clearways and cycleway closures, visit or call 132 701.

“Don’t forget, travel on the public transport network is free for competitors, and it is the best option to get to and from the City2Surf,” Supt Sicard said.

“While road closures are in place, there will be changes to a number of bus services between the CBD and Eastern Suburbs, so allow a little extra time and check to make sure your stop is still on the route.

“Sydney Buses are running additional services from Bondi Beach to Bondi Junction at the end of the race to help get everyone home.

“We will have officers from Police Transport Command patrolling the Bondi Junction public transport interchange to keep the area safe,” Supt Sicard said.

Visit to plan your trip on trains, buses, ferries and light rail. There are also a number of real-time apps to track your service.

Supt Sicard also reminded runners to avoid the crowds at the City2Surf Fitness & Health Expo, by attending today, or expect delays tomorrow.

“Our best advice is to arrive at the Expo early to pick-up your bib and drop off your finish line gear,” Supt Sicard said.

“This year, the gear drop-off service will be limited on the day of the race, but it can easily be checked-in with event staff at the Expo for delivery to the finish line.

“By planning ahead, you can make your trip to the expo and the lead-up to the race less stressful,” Supt Sicard said.

“This year, the gear drop-off service will be limited on the day of the race, but it can easily be checked-in with event staff at the Expo for delivery to the finish line.”

Supt Sicard said part of the plan should include public transport, as it is the best way for participants to get to the Expo.

“With more than 80,000 people registered for the City2Surf, we are expecting large crowds to make their way to Moore Park over the three days, which will impact traffic in the area,” Supt Sicard said.

“Sydney buses have regular services to the area from Sydney CBD, Circular Quay and the Eastern Suburbs and on Saturday, taking the stress out of travel.

“On Saturday, there will be free shuttle services from Central Station to Moore Park – participants just need to show the driver a copy of their Expo registration confirmation to board.”
