Chances are you have heard one or two things about Amsterdam already! A liberal city full of juxtapositions, this is a place that you just have to see for yourself to fully understand its quirks! I thought I would share some of my highlights from the weekend that show a different side to The Dam…
The month of May is a fantastic time of year in Amsterdam. Spring is in full swing, all of the pavement cafés are packed with happy people and a variety of special events are organised. Can we count you in?
House icons spin new beats while pushing the edge of electronic music as rock gods reunite on legendary stages. Meanwhile, pop divas mesmerize crowds of thousands and notorious rap crews unleash fresh rhymes with fury at packed out places all across the Continent. So book your tickets before they sell out and gear up for a show to remember at some of our favorite live music venues in Europe.
2013 will be a very special year for Amsterdam; a year full of milestones which will not go unnoticed! A variety of special events will take place in different parts of the city throughout the entire year. You will find further information on the ‘Amsterdam, the city to see in 2013!’ page.
