The second edition of the BarberSociety Live event will take place on Sunday, 25 June 2017 in05.06.16 WGF Barber Society Live-7999 Amsterdam. Following an extremely successful and sold-out first edition, this year’s edition is set to be even bigger and more international. BarberSociety Live is a qualitative event for barbers & men’s hairstylists who are interested in barber related issues and men’s and barber gear. This unique barbers-only event will be held in ‘Zuiveringshal West’ at the Westergasfabriek exhibition centre in Amsterdam. It’s a bigger venue than in 2016 and provides space for more visitors and participants. The event organisers are giving the event a more international character by inviting even more international barber teams to take part in the programme and by promoting the event outside the Netherlands. Founding sponsors American Crew (main sponsor) and Wahl are once again providing the event with the necessary support.


The set-up of BarberSociety Live 2017 will remain the same because it is key to the event’s success. A cool industrial venue where barbers can enjoy an eclectic range of shows, seminars, demonstrations and product presentations from industry-related and lifestyle brands in a laidback festival atmosphere while enjoying an Affligem beer or whiskey and great bites and beats. Marc van de Hare, initiator and organiser: ‘BarberSociety Live is the leading meeting place for barbers. That’s why it’s so important for us to have a relaxed setting where they can “chew the fat” about the barbering profession. I’m looking forward to catching up again with my colleagues from the private BarberSociety Facebook community. It will also be great to exchange experiences with my European colleagues who are BarberSociety members. That’s why we’re promoting this year’s event in a select number of European countries.’


05.06.16 WGF Barber Society Live-8024The event showcases an inspiring international programme. UK icons including legendary barber Chris Foster and the British barber team The B.O.M.B. Squad will once again take centre stage. This year’s line-up will also include for the first time educator Sid Sottung. It is unique that barbers from a number of different countries will meet up in Amsterdam on Sunday, 25 June 2017. Marc van de Hare: ‘In addition to having fun, it’s equally important that the event provides a platform for exchanging knowledge and gaining inspiration. That’s why we’re introducing an Open Podium this year where barbers can show their skills.’
