What once started as small, intimate and recurrent events with friends, has now grown into something much bigger. In 2018, Patroon launched its first public event in the empty production halls of the Schellens Fabriek in Eindhoven. In the previous century, these halls were used for the production of fabrics – hence the name Patroon (Patterns). The DNA of Patroon was created during these sessions: intimate, raw, artistic and unique locations combined with a specific electronic sound hosted by the Patroon Collabs DJ’s. The best news? This is just the beginning.
