SWEAT is a DJ collective and club night dedicated to queer and trans people of all genders and colors in Copenhagen and Berlin. Our aim is to create a playful and intentional space of exploration and uplift artists from our community. Our DJ’s will serve you energetic, bubbly, groovy and uplifting vibes. It’s all about dancefloor healing! T-faggots, fairies, futches, baby queers, trans femmes, zaddies, and in-betweens to the front! Come as you are, dress up to match our utopian theme or drag it up all the way - if you’re here to dance, dream, sweat and have fun, you’re welcome
GROUP THERAPY is a string of therapeutic raves focusing on community and striving to make space for gender, ethnic and musical diversity in and around the booth. Their parties are cute and rowdy, rooted in house music and 90s ravy delights with incursions into euphoric pop moments. Their parties are also known for epic closings that hit like bright sunshine in the darkest of clubs. Besides the core collective, Group Therapy is surrounded by a consortium of wonderful contributors, from bubble butt butlers to fruit altar creators.
SAFER SPACE MANIFESTO
SWEAT and Group Therapy are club nights dedicated to creating safer spaces, especially for queer and trans people of all genders and colors. Our aim is to create a playful space of exploration and healing where we feel seen and respected. This requires work and constant learning. You can help us by being mindful of your own behavior and of the people around you - let’s take care of each other.
- BIPOC, trans* & non-binary people to the front
- Do not assume people’s gender and pronouns
- Make sure to ask for consent, no always means no
- Do not stare too long or follow people around
- The dance floor is for dancing - no phones
- Set intentions for the night - we create the space together
- Be mindful of your consumption and ask for help if you’re not feeling good
- Protect your hearing
- Stay hydrated
READ SWEAT’s FULL SAFER SPACE MANIFESTO HERE:
DAS is a basement venue and not wheelchair accessible. Some toilet stalls are assigned for sitting down only. The music will be loud and there will be fog from the smoke machine and flashing lights and strobe lights. The venue is one big room with alcoves and different levels and steps. There is no completely quiet area inside. There are lots of sitting spots around. There is a small area outdoors in front of the club if you need a bit of quiet and a breather. Smoking indoors is only allowed in the smoking room. Please contact us before the event if you need extra assistance during the night and we will see how we can help.
AWARENESS W/ DAS’s SAFER SPACE AMBASSADORS
The DAS Safer Space ambassadors will be present all night. You can recognise them by their shirts that say “Awareness team”. They are professionals trained to deal with sensitive and urgent situations of any kind. Please do not hesitate to contact them if you feel uncomfortable for any reason. Your feeling of safety and well-being is our highest priority and no issue is too small for us to take seriously. If the experience is real to you, it is real to us.
DEN ANDEN SIDE’S GUIDELINES
We strive to make Den Anden Side a Safer Space. When you enter our space, you agree to being completely in sync with our rules and values. Please familiarize yourself with our house rules before entering the club, and reflect on whether you can support and follow them.
We do not accept any discrimination, exclusion, harassment, or physical or verbal or violence. This includes queerphobia, sexism, racism, ableism, body shaming, bullying, intimidation, sexual misconduct, transphobia and more.
Den Anden Side is queer at heart, and so are our values. Every night, we facilitate a safer space and place of belonging for marginalized people and the LGBTQIA+ community. If you are not part of these communities, please be extra mindful of how you take up space. We always balance the crowd to create the vibe we want, so we reserve the right to reject people at the door without explanation.
Our awareness team is present at the club every weekend. You can recognise them by their shirts that say “SAFER SPACE”. They are professionals trained to deal with sensitive and urgent situations of any kind. Please do not hesitate to contact them if you feel uncomfortable for any reason. Your feeling of safety and well-being is our highest priority and no issue is too small for us to take seriously. If the experience is real to you, it is real to us.
Consent is the foundation of interaction in our space. Whether it’s conversation, dance, physical contact, consumption or sexual activities — we expect everyone to ensure that it’s happening with consent and respect for your own and others’ boundaries.
If you cannot take care of yourself, you are making the space less safe. We need you to be just as mindful of your own safety as you are of your fellow dancers’. If you feel unwell or are worried about another guest, don’t hesitate to contact our awareness team.
NO PHOTOS AND NO PHONES
Den Anden Side is a place for freedom of expression without the all-seeing eye of social media. Therefore, photos and videos are not allowed inside our space. Please refrain from using your phone on the dance floor. We created the dance floor for dancing.
Be aware that we use flashing lights and loud sound, and that it can get hot and crowded inside the club. Unfortunately, the space is not accessible with a wheelchair.
RESPECT FOR OUR SURROUNDINGS
Please show respect to the Palads building and the area around it. Do not leave any empty bottles or trash in the area or do any form of vandalism to the building or the surroundings. We also ask everyone not to hang around the area after the club closes, as we want to maintain a good relationship with the cinema and not disturb their guests.
We welcome all sexualities.
We welcome all ethnicities.
We welcome all genders.
All we ask is that you respect your fellow dancer and enjoy RIGHT NOW
