We Dutchies, we love to go to outdoor festivals during summertime. Happily for us the amount of festivals in The Netherlands is massive. Our favorits in the month May are AMSTERDAM OPEN AIR, PACHA and PINKPOP.
After the massively successful premiere of AMSTERDAM OPEN AIR in 2011, it was clear that a follow up was inevitable. The sequel in recreational area Gaasperpark is on Saturday May 26th and Sunday May 27th. This edition will be expanded: what began as a one day festival has developed into a full weekender, with space to stay the night at the nearby camping site. Amsterdam Open Air is an initiative of AIR and MTV, along with a number of leading organizations in Amsterdam. The program will be an authentic cross section of the metropolitan nightlife.
A new Dutch festival with international attitude is PACHA FESTIVAL organized the 19th of May on Java Island, Amsterdam. The brand known worldwide for its shiny red cherry logo, extravagant parties with stars, hotels, restaurants and music has decided to put all their great nights together in one day. You find for example Pete Thong on the Pure Pacha stage and Copyright on the Defected In The House area.
PINKPOP FESTIVAL is a festival held at Landgraaf, started in 1970. It is a 3 day festival and visited by approximately 60.000 people a day with performances on 3 separate stages. Since 1990 Pinkpop is included in the Great Guinness Book Of Records as the oldest continuing music festival organize in The Netherlands. Pinkpop is known by the great line up of big National and International artists.
Hopefully Blue Blood can inspire you for the perfect festival outfit.
