Brilliant or Crazy? This Abandoned Mine Has Been Turned Into A Techno Club
Ravers are super imaginative when it comes to throwing ragers in cool spaces. Most recently, a former-coal mine in Germany’s industrial heartland was transformed into a techno club, and has proven to be the perfect host.
Telekom Electronic Beats and Baka Gaijin teamed up to throw a massive party at a decommissioned coal mine site in North-Rhine Westphalia, known as Essen’s Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex. This wasn’t too long after a similar get-together at Landschaftspark in nearby Duisburg.
With a number of social spaces, museums, a swimming pool and jogging course, Essen’s Zollverein certainly has a lot of character. Baka Gaijin’s Alexis Fallias further explains the appeal of industrial sites like these.
“Both venues, in my opinion, don’t need big headliners because the venue is the headliner. After I picked Ryan Elliot up from the airport, when he saw the venue, he said it reminded him of his hometown in Detroit.”
If you ever get an invite to a shindig like this — go. These pop up techno parties are a rare occurrence.
“I think you can throw a maximum of three or four parties a year there,” says Fallias. “It’s a heritage site and they want to protect it.”

Police Shutdown Major EDM Club In Seattle, Seize 1,000 Grams of MDMA, Date-Rape Drugs, More
Foundation Nightclub in Seattle has played host to a number of legendary acts as they’ve come through Seattle, with upcoming performances scheduled for the likes of Pegboard Nerds, Cosmic Gate, Valentino Khan, and Claude VonStroke. However, the club and its employees now face jailtime thanks to an undercover operation between the Seattle Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents in which 12 people were arrested.
The operation began in March of this year when police received reports of drug trafficking within the club. According to the Seattle Police Blotter, “In a series of undercover operations, police purchased cocaine, methamphetamine, MDMA, and GHB inside or near the club. All of the drugs were either purchased from employees at the club, including security, or facilitated by employees or managers of Foundation, who introduced undercover officers to dealers.”
The club also reportedly had “several in-house drug dealers, who were allowed to bypass club security and sell inside the venue.”
At the end of the sting, SPD and HSI “seized 829 grams of cocaine, over 1,000 grams of MDMA, 400 ecstasy pills, 800 Xanax pills, 190 grams of ketamine, 13 grams of DMT, 176 grams of GHB, 1200 Molly capsules, and additional prescription drugs, as well as two handguns and more than $60,000 in cash.”
The club’s liquor license has been suspended, forcing the club to close for the time being.
Foundation Nightclub issued this statement earlier today:
At Least Seventeen Dead After Stampede In Nightclub
A party at a nightclub in Caracas, Venezuela this weekend ended in tragedy as at least seventeen people were killed during a stampede within the club. According to the country’s interior minister, Néstor Reverol, who made a statement on Saturday, it all started when a fight broke out in the nightclub. Somehow, a tear-gas canister was set off during the brawl which caused the ensuing stampede as patrons rushed to exit.
Over 500 people were in the club when this all happened, as they all simultaneously rushed to the exit. Among the dead were eight minors. Many in the club were there to celebrate ahead of their graduation.
Seven people were arrested on suspicion of starting the brawl which led to the stampede; the club owner was also arrested on suspicion of “not checking patrons for weapons.”
This is not the first time that a mass casualty event has occurred in a nightclub in Caracas. The infamous La Guajira fire in 2002 resulted in the death of 50 people after a similar stampede.
According to the NY Times, “Blocking emergency doors or not building them is common in Latin America as a way to ensure customers do not leave without paying the bill.”
Dancing FBI Agent Accidentally Shoots Someone In Denver Nightclub [VIDEO]
Guns and backflips don’t mix — and, unfortunately, that needed to be learned the hard way in this situation.
Apparently an off-duty FBI agent was getting down at a dance club in Denver last night when things went horribly wrong. According to multiple reports, the agent’s gun dislodged during a backflip and accidentally went off when he reached for it. The bullet struck another attendee in the leg.
As you can see in the video below, this guy was really letting loose before his gun fell down to the ground. Just as he grabbed toward the firearm, it went off. What you can’t see is that someone standing nearby took the bullet. Thankfully, that person is said to be in good condition following the incident.
The craziest part is — the FBI agent walks off so nonchalantly. Not such a smooth move.
The nightclub, the identity of the accidental shooter, and the name of the hospital where the victim was treated all remain unidentified by reports at this time. The police investigation is still underway and any charges will be determined by the Denver District Attorney’s Office.
