Music, theatre and family festival

The main and DJ stages are traditionally located along the River IJ and play host to acts including up-and-coming Amsterdam bands and stacks of Amsterdam DJs. There’s always a packed programme of art, theatre and crafts to keep the family entertained the entire day. Check the Hemeltjelief website for more information nearer the time.
