Dancing + clubbing scene in Amsterdam

Clubs in Amsterdam work a bit differently. There is no set music style, instead they are being mixed up.

An old church turned into music temple.

Awake in the Gashouder

If you are visiting during the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) which takes place during October, buy tickets for Awakenings. The events have great DJs, an amazing lightship and indoors fireworks. Awakenings is also on New Years, every Easter, and there is even a festival which takes place outdoors in Spaarnwoude. www.awakenings.com
