music event

Amsterdam’s a true music city and its music agenda has something for every taste. There are week-long electronic music events and classical music festivals that see arias performed on the canals and chamber music in Golden Age mansions. There’s instrumental surf music, traditional Dutch folk, a cello biennial, experimental and new music, outdoor hip-hop extravaganzas and a lot – and we mean a lot! – more.
