About the author
Born and raised in Amsterdam, lives to dance and dances to live on electronic music, has a small vinyl addiction, appreciates a little sarcasm now and then, thinks musicals are annoying and loves those moments where you lose track of time completely.

Too many plans for the weekend? Let me narrow your options down by weekly suggesting the events where you can meet, dance and drink with Amsterdam’s finest crowds. After all, ‘a hangover ain’t worth the pain if the party is lame’. So here’s where you weekend warriors should go to for next Monday’s hangover.

Friday, Saturday, Sunday: DEKMANTEL FESTIVAL @ Amsterdamse Bos

My oh my, Dekmantel. I remember when the festival sold out within a second last year. Shit got crazy and people started to offer to trade their virginity for a ticket. In a recent interview (in Dutch) Thomas Martojo, one of the founders, explains that when he looks at the line-up he feels like a kid in a candy store. And so do I. Let me just give you a small part of who you can expect this year: Jamie xx, Jeff Mills, Prins Thomas, Nina Kraviz, Tale Of Us, Ben Klock, Nicolas Jaar, Rahaan, DJ Harvey, Âme and Rødhåd. DAMN. See you there. Oh and it’ll be worth your while to check out DEKMANTEL AT NIGHT in Trouw as well.


Saturday, Sunday: Wild und Frei Festival @ Diemerbos

Those of you who where there at Wilde Renate Festival at Magneet last year know you can’t miss out on this. This is a festival for thrill seekers that look for dazzling diversity and love a freak show. So this is a festival for people like me. Wilde Renate, Kris Kross, Kopjek, Modern Movement, Plak, Thuis bij de familie and The fresh kids have put together a line-up which will guarantee you fun.

Sunday: Marek Hemmann special @ Woodstock ’69

Press play below before you start reading this to get the right vibe. Marek Hemmann. Woodstock ’96. Sunshine. Sand. A cold beer. Tunes. Sexy people. Dancing until everything hurts. A fresh breeze through your hair. Mojitos. See where I’m going? See you Sunday.
