There’s nothing like a little music to elevate your Amsterdam experience and just because the clubs are closed, doesn’t mean the party’s over. Thanks to live-stream events and creative online performances, you can still see the most popular Dutch DJs spinning new sets. So let Martin Garrix, Fedde le Grand, Oliver Heldens and Brennan Heart mix the dance track on a journey to Amsterdam Area’s most stunning locations, from tulip fields to winding canals. It is a dream trip and a club night blended together and served for your enjoyment wherever you may be.
Martin Garrix at A’dam Tower
This Dutch DJ and record producer takes A’dam Tower to new heights with a 20-minute set for Radio 538 that pairs feel-good dance music with eye-candy aerial views of Amsterdam. Garrix bopping along to the beats in his King’s Day orange hoodie is an added bonus. Get into it.
If you prefer your Martin Garrix at sea level, check him out as he boats through Kaag Lakes in South Holland. Dutch countryside, fields and farmhouses coast by as Garrix piedpipers a crowd of yachts and motorboats in a convoy of smiling faces, laidback scenery and brilliant beatmatching.
Fedde le Grand at Keukenhof
Utrecht-born house DJ Fedde le Grand lights up Keukenhof in this epic livestream event. Tulip fields stretch out in a kaleidoscopic blanket as the beats blend, build and layer. Bringing the cheerful, flowery pep of a spring brunch to the thrumming pulse of a wild night out, this set is just the burst of sunshine we need to liven up our quarantine.
Oliver Heldens cruising Amsterdam canals
Yes, he’s a dynamite future-house DJ, but Rotterdam legend Oliver Heldens is also arguably the best canal cruise tour guide ever. You won’t learn fun facts about the sights along the water, but his music, dance moves and commentary (“let’s get groovy!”) on this hour-long journey through Amsterdam’s waterways are next level. Between his fly floral jacket (and just wait until he takes it off at 23:23), the gorgeous canals, 17th-century architecture and the banging basslines, it is a sensory overload that’s sure to rock your boat.
Brennan Heart at Walibi Holland
Hardstyle DJ and producer Brennan Heart playing afterdark at Walibi Holland theme park is lit, literally. Expect pyrotechnics, lasers, a smoke machine, a fountain and a giant ferris wheel whorling flashing lights. Heart’s set is an eclectic mix with a few anthems that will have you singing along, some tracks to trance out to and others that will have you fist-pumping and jumping around your living room.
