Info

Machine translated text. Show original   Edit translation

The VORTEX Music Club was born on 30.12.2005. Emerging from the ruins of the "terrible", it rose out of the ashes like a phoenix to enrich the nightlife of Siegen with concerts and parties. That much pathos must be.

From a technical point of view, we don't just make the usual clubs and discotheques the same, but we organise a colourful programme, a mixture of different music styles. So it can happen that the Indians feel like they've stepped on the tie or the Chucks when the soundbombing party is going on. And the punk is turning up his nose at Hellfire. We have to go through that, though.

Karin K. finds, by the way:"The vortex reminds me of a splinter of Christiania, which accidentally landed in Siegen by cosmic currents." The variety of music genres is the basic principle of the VORTEX (...) Show more, which keeps the boredom of the mainstream outside. Finally, the name says it all: vortex.

The VORTEX is a smoking club, i. e. only members of the smoking club are eligible for admission. For this you have to be at least 18 years old and pay one euro. Something else applies only to events.

Band applications will only be processed by e-mail. Show less

Der VORTEX Musik Club hat am 30.12.2005 das Licht der Welt erblickt. Hervorgegangen aus den Trümmern der “Furchtbar” ist er wie ein Phoenix aus der Asche gestiegen, um das Siegener Nachtleben mit Konzerten und Parties zu bereichern. Soviel Pathos muss sein.

Programmtechnisch machen wir nicht den Einheitsbrei der herkömmlichen Clubs und Diskotheken, sondern veranstalten ein buntes Programm, eine Mischung von verschiedenen Musikstilen. Da kann es natürlich mal sein, dass der Indierocker sich auf den Schlips, bzw. die Chucks getreten fühlt, wenn die “Soundbombing”-Party läuft. Und der Punk rümpft die Nase bei “Hellfire”. Da müssen wir allerdings durch.

Karin K. findet übrigens: “Das Vortex erinnert mich an einen Splitter von Christiania, der zufällig durch kosmische Strömungen in Siegen gel (...) Show moreandet ist.” Die Vielfalt der Musikgenres ist Grundprinzip des VORTEX, dadurch bleibt die Langeweile des Mainstream draußen. Schließlich ist der Name Programm: VORTEX, engl. Wirbel, Strudel.

Das VORTEX ist ein Raucherclub, d.h. zutrittsberechtigt sind nur Mitglieder des Raucherclubs. Dafür muss man mindestens 18 Jahre alt sein und einmalig einen Euro zahlen. Etwas anderes gilt nur bei Veranstaltungen.
