We sadly need to inform you that due to canceled flights the debut show of Jeff Mills presents the Edgar Mitchell affair is aborted for tonight and Ampere will be closed for this Saturday.

A message from Jeff Mills:

“The best-laid plans of mice and men often go astray”. – John Steinbeck

“It’s not often this happens, maybe once every few years, but extreme weather and activities in nature make air travel too difficult to move around safely. Many years ago, one of my most memorable situations was when a volcano erupted in Iceland and all transatlantic flights were canceled due to volcanic ash in the stratosphere that could have clogged the air plane’s engines.

Due to the extreme weather in Britain, my outbound Leeds-Bradford flight this morning was canceled.

Without many options to re-route the travel to the eventual city of Antwerp, we regret to inform you that this evening’s debut event. The Edgar Mitchell Affair will be postponed and rescheduled for a later date. The detailed preparation and planning will not go in vain and we hope that you can be informed of a suitable date soon.

We thank you for your patience and understanding. Mother Nature is still the boss”

See you soon,

Jeff Mills

We announce a new show soon. Tickets are valid for next show.

With kind regards – Ampere.

“Brace yourselves for a night in paranormal and ufology”

Jeff Mills will continue his pursuit of fusing the worlds of techno and astronomy this February with the inaugural edition of The Edgar Mitchell Affair.

Taking place on 9th February in Antwerp, Belgium’s Ampere club, Mills will DJ from 11pm to 5am with specially curated visuals designed to coincide with the parties theme of “paranormal and ufology”.

The party is described as “a transformable musical journey to the moon’s lunar surface and back. Along the way, you might cross paths alien life or maybe even discover you are actually from a different planet yourself, co-existing with humans all along, without even noticing these differences.”

The theme and title of the party are inspired by late astronaut Edgar Mitchell who, 49 years ago this February, traveled for six days aboard Apollo 14. Upon his return, he became a vocal figure on the subject of intelligent extraterrestrial life.

In a 1997 interview with NASA, Mitchell spoke of his six-day journey to space: “To me, that was the culmination of my being, and what can I learn from this? What is it we are learning? That’s important because I think what we’re trying to do is discover ourselves and our place in the cosmos, and we don’t know. We’re still looking for that.”

In his book, The Way of the Explorer, which was published the year before, he wrote, “There was a sense that our presence as space travelers, and the existence of the universe itself, was not accidental but that there was an intelligent process at work.”

Mills hopes to channel that sense of curiosity in this new party. He has also put forward a dress code for the occasion, asking those who buy tickets to “Come as something different other than yourself. Transform your appearance. You choose. Free creative make-up assistance will be provided at the location. Your creative cooperation is an aspect of great importance for a full experience.”

Tickets for the party can be bought in the Ampere online ticket shop on this website.

Mills’ ‘Lost In Space’ orchestral release made its live debut in April 2018. Last year, NASA announced that it had teamed up with Mills and London radio station NTS for a six-part radio series titled ‘Jeff Mills: The Outer Limits’.
