In the summer of 2006, Sindikat performed their first ever occupation at the lesbian club Monokel. However, the swiftly growing mix of gay and straight guests didn't sit well with the adjacent club, Tiffany.
Five years later, Sindikat appears to have achieved its initial goal, which was to kick Ljubljana's clubbing scene into shape. The legendary parties, which incorporated fashion, storytelling, art and politics, were host to some of music's hottest talents, such as Hercules and Love Affair, Princess Superstar, Jessica 6, Namosh, Khan, Dolby Anol, etc.
The group has also helped kickstart Blitz, one of the hottest alternative dance parties in Berlin, where some of Sindikat's members are now based.
In 2011, the only Slovenian queer collective comes full circle, playing at the only gay club in Ljubljana, ironically, for the first time ever. The club has changed for the better, the gays have as well, but have we? Perhaps it's time to OCCUPY SINDIKAT! But can you ever, really?
