BN is the communal adopted abbreviation of European event brand Bear-Necessity.

Launched in 2008 for the Amsterdam bear community, BN quickly grew and - while attracting a wider audience of predominantly tough blokes - expanded rapidly to other European cities including London, Madrid, Tel Aviv, Antwerp and Cologne. Best described as a rough, yet friendly attitude-free dance event with quality music by international DJ artists invited from both the main circuit as the underground scene.
