Authorities were called to shut down an illegal rave in an under-construction police station in Amsterdam last week.

Last weekend (21st), police were called to an illegal event in the city's Zeeburg district, where around 300 people were in attendance at the event, NME reports.

When police arrived at the construction site — a new police station in the Zeeburg district — party go-ers were still attempting to gain entry to the event. The police confirmed that two people – a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old — had been arrested in connection with organising the rave.

The police also reported that all of the soundsystems used for the party had been seized.

As of Wednesday 26th January, cafes, bars and hospitality venues have reopened in Amsterdam, with reduced capacity and curfews in place. Patrons must also still display a COVID pass to gain entry to venues.

Last year, it was announced that a new electronic music museum, Our House, had opened its doors in Amsterdam.
