Club Antichrist review: the raw energy of metal

Club AntiChrist… ready to embark on a wild night of music, mayhem, and unapologetic individuality? Look no further than Club AntiChrist. Let’s chat about why this event is one of the most unique kink raves out there, peppered with my own impressions from their most recent event.

MUSIC – Because Headbanging is a Lifestyle

If your heart beats in sync with the raw energy of metal, Club AntiChrist is your haven. Imagine a playlist that’s a mishmash of 80s/goth/postpunk/alt anthems/metal—epic, right? Unlike your run-of-the-mill raves, this one is heavy on the metal vibes, a refreshing departure from the techno-dominated scene. Truly a game-changer for the kinky metalheads.

Multiple dance floors, each with its unique flavour, ensure variety and the chance to roam around until you find your vibe. While headbanging is definitely the main selling point, there is so much more than that, including alt anthems, synthwave and goth.

BEYOND THE MUSIC: Performances and Social spaces

But here’s the real deal: AntiChrist isn’t just about the beats; it’s a full experience. Each event has performances as well, with the latest Theatre of Sin unfolding with mesmerizing fusion belly dance, sword-wielding spectacles and much more.

And let’s not forget the large and inviting garden, a haven for socializing that also offers hot food all through the night (a rarity in these events!). This expansive outdoor area not only adds to the event’s well-rounded nature but also makes it incredibly neurodivergent friendly. Need a breather from the dancefloor or the intense beats? The garden’s got your back. It’s a quieter oasis amidst the chaos, offering a perfect retreat to recharge or connect with new friends. This thoughtful touch makes Club AntiChrist’s venue an inclusive space, embracing diversity in every sense.

ATTENDING: Your Ticket to Club AntiChrist

Getting your ticket to Club AntiChrist is a breeze—no need for secret handshakes or initiation rites. Simply buy your tickets in advance, and you’re all set to dive in. However, there’s also an intriguing alternative: unlike some exclusive soirees, Club AntiChrist belief in inclusivity means that tickets are available at the door, embracing the spontaneous souls who decide to join the revelry last minute. It’s a nod to accessibility, ensuring that everyone gets a shot at this extraordinary experience.

This of course has an impact on crowd dynamics. The ticket-on-the-door policy does mean a slightly more eclectic mix, a kaleidoscope of characters converging for a night of unbridled fun. It’s the price of diversity, a conscious choice to open the doors wide and welcome all.

DRESS CODE – Alternative without being too strict

The dress code at Club AntiChrist is a call to arms for the alternative in you. Whether you’re into punk, goth, cybergoth, or just want an excuse to wear that rubber jumpsuit, this is your moment. Most people will embrace kinkwear, but harnesses and underwear are not a must have. Having been at a couple of their events, I’ve noticed the transition from elaborate ensembles to more casual wear as the night unfolds and more people join. Something to keep in mind if you’re all about the vibe.

THE CROWD – Nerdy Vibes and Queer-Friendly Feels

What’s a party without its people, right? Club AntiChrist takes pride in its delightfully nerdy crowd—my kind of people! It’s a gathering of misfits, quirks, and a celebration of not fitting in. While the crowd isn’t overwhelmingly queer, the atmosphere screams queer-friendly. It’s a melting pot of eccentricity, and everyone’s invited to the party.

KINKY DETAILS: Voyeurism and Kink in Plain Sight

Now, let’s get a bit cheeky. The dungeon setup is as peculiar as it gets. Picture this: all the kink furniture in plain sight, blurring the lines between players and spectators. It’s a unique experience that adds an element of voyeurism to the night. Meanwhile, the playroom offers a more intimate setting for those who prefer privacy. It’s like a choose-your-own-adventure of kink!

CONCLUSION: Worth it if you’re looking for your people

While metal isn’t my scene, I’ve not had a bad night at AntiChrist. The differences between this and other kinky raves add to its charm, and if it’s the metal goths you’re after, this is an unmissable event. The night is an unapologetic celebration where the being an oddball is not just accepted but encouraged. So, ready your outfits, tighten your boots, and get ready for a night where every beat is a toast to dark eclecticism.
