Amsterdam Music Festivals 2019

Here we go again, the complete list of Amsterdam music festivals 2019! Most of the festivals are outdoor dance festivals taking place in or near Amsterdam.

The music on these festivals is mostly electronic:  EDM, techno, house, deep house, trance, hip hop, tech-house, dub, club, dubstep, goa trance but also hardcore, urban and reggae. Music festivals in Amsterdam that focus on minimal, pop, indie and alternative, jazz and latin like salsa are also on the list.
