music festival

Amsterdam’s a true music city and its music festival 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 festivals dedicated to instrumental surf music and traditional Dutch folk, a cello biennale, experimental and new music, outdoor hip-hop extravaganzas and a lot – and we mean a lot! – more.
