YEAH! The festival season is in full swing. And this year A Day At The Park celebrates its 8th bday already! So save the date for July 11 and make sure to get your ticket before it’s sold out. I can remember my first time at A Day At The Park like it was yesterday. I just finished university and was in the partymood all summer long. After 8 years this festival is so much more than the small event at a grass field in the Amsterdam Forest! If you like international DJ’s this is an event you shouldn’t miss.
The line-up is great with beats from: Mark Knight, Kris Kross, Erick Morillo, Technesia and Umek. Super divers and with something in there for everyone. I love to walk around between the main stage and the smaller areas like the techno stage “Under The Radar”. Or practise your disco moves at the dancefloor killers at The Playground!
Of course ADATP also has a great food line up. With many organic choices and the lovely picknick baskets that make your day at the park complete :-).
