Amsterdam Open Air



Amsterdam Open Air presents a dynamic line-up again this year, representing the Amsterdam night life. Like the previous successful editions, the four main stages will be hosted by Apenkooi, Carnivale, Format and GirlsLoveDJs. They will be supported by newcomers Straf_Werk, Diepzinnig and the new stage Open AIR – BY MTV.

With names including Aeroplane, Todd Terry and Flight Facilities, disco and electro will set the tone of the Apenkooi stage on Saturday. Amsterdam will be honored to welcome Belgian rave queen Raving George, treating Open Air to merciless electro. Open AIR – BY MTV has booked big names including Tiga, Hercules & Love Affair Soundsystem, Redlight and Marbert Rocel. Format will start the weekend at full throttle with heroes of techno Paco Osuna, Joop Junior and Ici Sans Merci. Format godfather Juan Sanchez will take place behind the decks on both Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday Robert Hood and Sandwell District as well as homegrown Egbert, Mirella Kroes and Kevin Arneman will be present. This year, GirlsLoveDJs will have enough DJ’s to sink a ship, including de Jeugd van Tegenwoordig, The Flexican & MC Sef and Yellow Claw.

Carnivale pulls out the theatrics once again and rolls out a list of names that make you applaud spontaneously: ONNO, tINI, Guti, Sneak, Cassy and indestructible tech-house artists Matthias Tanzmann and The Martinez Brothers. The new but certainly not modest hosting partners Diepzinnig and Straf_Werk have put deep-house on the Amsterdam nightlife map during the past year. With names including Benoit & Sergio and Laura Jones, these hosts are not too shy to make their first Amsterdam Open Air stages spectacular.
