The daytime program provides many workshops. There’s everything from learning new DJ skills, workshops about navigating the dance music business, movie screenings and many many more! It’s essentially one big pop-up shop in Amsterdam. All over. All day.

At night, the city of Amsterdam transforms into a clubbers paradise. DJs from all of the world take over some of the biggest venues in Amsterdam and play some the biggest, loudest sets of the year.
