all festivals

Including more than 300 festivals every year, Amsterdam’s festival agenda spans all tastes and genres: the range of festivals is broad, powerful and diverse. The festival calendar is packed with everything from outdoor film extravaganzas to (multi-day) dance music parties, from kid’s festivals to art and fashion events and from culinary fêtes to chamber music in Golden Age canal-side houses.
