Over 2,200 artists played more than 450 events across 120 of the best clubs, bars and venues in the city, as a relentless barrage of the world’s best parties all took place en masse.
One thing that came clear through the five days of raves is that, in terms of a quality to volume ratio, nobody does nightclubs quite like Amsterdam.
Amsterdam club De School has announced its first weekender, which is set to begin on Saturday 11th June and roll through until the following Monday morning.
