Wasteland, founded in 1994, is one of the biggest fetish/BDSM parties in the World. It is based in Amsterdam/Zaandam. It is a non-stop show with many scenes, more then 50 private places and an afterparty.
Its origins lie in the idea of bringing those then in the Netherlands underground fetish scene into the open. The ultimate goal was to create a climate of tolerance and acceptance for the fetish culture. A place for straights, gays and bisexuals. An adult playground where you can discover and experience your fetish fantasies. A place where you can be who you really want to be, without prejudices.
The very first Wasteland Party was launched at Amsterdam's famous club "36 op de Schaal van Richter" and the neighbours across the street, "cafe Blitz". A bridge was built between the two clubs across the street. On the bridge fetish lovers and special acts showed the city what Wasteland was all about. Thousands of people, passing by or just visiting the bars, bore witness to incredible, out of the ordinary (to say the least) and exciting performances.
