Keep in mind that these are our personal choices and there are literally dozens of other festivals happening each year. Nevertheless, we believe that you can trust us having that partying is our way of life.
What other festival to start with than the largest electronic music event in Amsterdam and definitely one of the most epic techno parties worldwide. When you think about Awakenings you should think about the biggest names in the business, a wild party including tenths of thousands of people, and overall simply unforgettable days.
Awakenings 2022 will happen twice this year, having their Easter edition be on April 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th, and their first ever Summer edition take place July 29th, 30th and 31st.
Both of their editions have some of the biggest names as well as upcoming talent which we highly suggest techno lovers experience in person. Line-ups, prices, and extras are already available on their website as well as social media accounts.
There is no way to miss mentioning the oldest electronic music festival in the Netherlands – Dance Valley. Throughout its 27-year history, the festival has become home to the biggest names in dance music and will continue in the future as it remains to be one of the most popular and beautiful Amsterdam dance festivals of the year.
Although the festival is not located exactly in Amsterdam, the short trip north to Velsen Valley is well worth it. Besides the obvious quality selection of artists, you will be left amazed by the extraordinary special effects that complete the entire party experience.
Their 2022 edition will take place on August 13th. The festival has 8 stages with every type of music including Hardstyle, Techno, Trance, Urban Eclectic, Open Format, Pop&Dance and House. We suggest registering on their website as soon as possible before they’re last ticket drop goes live.
If you are searching for once in a lifetime experience in the Netherlands, then you should consider visiting Amsterdam at the end of April or more specific – around the 27th. You may not know but this day is a national holiday called King’s Day and is a countrywide party.
It doesn't really matter if you are in Amsterdam or in any other city. On this day, many of the Dutch citizens from around the country dress in orange and go out in the streets to join hundreds of fun events. Particularly in Amsterdam, you can join the incredible Kingsland festival.
The festival that takes place in RAI Amsterdam will satisfy every type of party taste as there are numerous different stages with artists and tunes from various genres. They’re even including an ANTS stage, where you’ll get to experience Ibiza’s leading house and techno party, here in Amsterdam. Overall, Kingsland is an incredible opportunity to experience the culture and party life of Amsterdam and the Netherlands altogether.
If you are all about gender and racial equality and carry the liberal vibes of the Netherlands everywhere with you, then you should definitely join Milkshake Festival in 2022. This extraordinary festival is all about freedom and unlimited self-expression.
As you can already feel, Milkshake is not your average music festival. When you take out the extraordinary concept and all the curious additions, it has multiple stages like any other festival and is primarily focused on electronic dance music.
