For this Thursday night extravaganza we're bringing together some of your local favorites, that can get a dance floor pumping like no one else! Featuring an international legend who has never blessed North America, nor the rest of the Western Hemisphere, with his musical magic......

Introducing Jan Oberlaender, born and raised in Germany, resident DJ in many of the most epic tenured clubs in Europe. Producer of some of the most unique, fun, and wild house and techno, and master of the decks, underground, above ground, and breaking grounds all over the EU. The Bäkenäl team can't help but notice that everyone that hears a Jan Oberlaender set leaves with their chins on the ground, not knowing where that came from, or how to find another experience like the one he creates.

For this reason our crew would like to present and share the moments, memories, and music that we have had to his soundtrack and collection of unique and mind-bending beats to our favorite city, our home, and our beloved community of family and friends - with a special Thursday evening extended set, in a beautiful venue with great audio, multiple rooms, lounges, and a sexy outdoor garden.

Bäkenäl is back and better than ever! Join the party, find the clowns, and find your way to 3 Dollar Bill. You're welcome.

We are working on a special immersive performance for the early arrivals that has never been seen before. Secure your tickets early as space is limited to guarantee to be part of something VERY SPECIAL....

It has been one of our primary intentions to tie together some of the most forward thinking artists and dreamers to enhance every event. This is something you don't want to miss.....
