Welcome to the Zoukdreams Castle of Miracles!
After the fantastic Monastery weekends in 2022, which were all sold-out, we found a new stunning location for the next Zoukdreams event. Here we have added more incredible artists to the program and the capacity to receive more joyous people!
If you visited Zoukdreams before, you will surely enjoy Castle of Miracles! If you’re new you will be able to taste the vibe of our events, but with extra space and various options in the program to choose from. You’re invited to try and discover, or just to continue enjoying! Either way, Castle of Miracles will be one NOT to miss!
The new location offers spaces for the activities, eating and sleeping under the same roof. Are you excited for an all taken care event where the only things you have to do are connect, dance and enjoy? Then this Zoukdreams weekend is definitely for you!

Why and what, the Castle of Miracles:
Our venue is in The Netherlands, close to Germany, very central in Western-Europe. The roots of the castle go back to 13th century and the current building is from 1830. It is surrounded by nature and the river Maas. In between workshops you can take a breath of fresh air and walk through the gardens and forest on the property.
For Zoukdreams we only use a modern building next to the old castle. But this is in fact the real Castle of Miracles: it is a new fantasy castle created from re-used materials from local buildings, including some old fortifications of the town of Venlo. The modern building has bigger rooms to dance and up to date, comfortable sleeping rooms.
Johannes (DJ Zoukerro) started to organize events in 2007. Every year since than, Zoukdreams has created different new large event concepts surprising and inspiring the Dutch Zouk scene. In 2009 Zoukdreams created CEZATH (Contemporary European Zouk Assembly The Hague), with many Brazilian teachers, including: Renata Pecanha, Jorge Peres, Adilio, Mafie Zouker, Leonardo Neves, Layssa Liebscher, Gilson Damasco, Max BlackSoul, Nyx.
Organizing occasional large Zouk events lead in the end to a series of the YUZE (Your Ultimate Zouk Esthesia) concept between 2014 and 2017. In 2018 and 2019 the first Zoukdreams weekenders took place.
