Paradigm originated from a partnership of music lovers, artists, students and entrepreneurs and it functions as a nightclub and a meeting place for kindred spirits as well as dissenters. The club is located in a stripped building which in the distant past served as a grain elevator. A group of friends and volunteers transformed this unique location into the perfect place to present and experience the works of headstrong and enthusiastic creatives and progressive and talented musicians.

The club has a stubborn vision on electronic music and visual arts in all its possible shapes. Paradigm brings a very diverse supply of artists from various niches in house and techno together during the club nights. In addition, Paradigm manifests itself as a creative and cultural platform for interested parties in the areas Groningen and Friesland. The creative and musical, combined with the raw and industrial appearance of the elevator, make the club a source of inspiration for musicians and artists as well as visitors.
