You might already know that Amsterdam has one of the biggest dance events in the world. This is always in October and is called: ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event). But, as this is still a few months away, you can also plan a festival for this Summer if you’re planning on paying a visit to Amsterdam. We’ve listed the top dance/techno festivals in Amsterdam for you. In order of date.
Mystic Garden Festival: 15 June
This festival is there for a few years now and it’s still immensly popular among young people. This is a techno festival organised in a park (Sloterpark). You’ll get a true mystic garden feeling, as you have to walk through the woods to go to a different stage. Especially during the evening this gives it all a special feeling.
Komm Schon Alter: 22 June
Are you 25+ and a big techno fan? Then this is the place to be for you! This festival was organised to eliminate the young people at festivals.. As this is quite a thing since a few years. That’s why the organiser of this festival came up with the idea of a party for 25+. Ideal if you want to be surrounded with people your age!
Nomads Festival: 29 June
Their pay-off is: Your vibe attracts your tribe. This is a true Nomads party! Full of lights and signs to find each other. To listen to good music together and to dance together. This festival is throughout the weekend. You can party for two days if you want! If that’s a bit too much, then you can buy a day-ticket as well. Enjoy this ambience!
Awakenings Festival: 29 June
During the same weekend of Nomads, there’s Awakenings. You might know this festival by name as this is also a very popular festival across the border. Awakenings is there for many years already and it is insanely big! If you want to go with a big group of friends, do know that you’ll probably won’t stay together the whole time. You loose each other in a split second.
As you can see there are quite a few options for festivals in Amsterdam! When visiting Amsterdam, be sure to book a nice hostel for yourself. Hostel Amsterdam Sarphati offers you a comfortable place to stay at an affordable rate.
