In summer there are also plenty of festivals in Amsterdam. PITCH is an Amsterdam festival that is held almost in the centre of the capital. It’s no mainstream party. You won’t find any soppy singer-songwriters or bouncy folk here. So what will you find there? Well, you’re guaranteed a whole lot of raw electronic music.

It’s the number one festival in the Netherlands and every year it sells out in no time, but you’ve just got to be there! Lowlands has been held in Biddinghuizen every year since 1993 and it always has a fantastic line-up. This year is no exception, with acts such as Major Lazer and Paolo Nutini on stage.
