Buiten Westen 2013 Amsterdam: one of the best festival newbies

When you tell Amsterdam locals about a new small scale festival in the heart of the city they are all ears what you have to say. Last year Buiten Westen was the new IT festival everyone was talking about. Buiten Westen 2013 Amsterdam is promising to be even better! The DJ line-up is good, there’s gonna be focus on good food and artists will perform for those who are tired from dancing. What I like so much about Buiten Westen 2013 Amsterdam is that you can easily take your bike there since it’s at the Westerpark. Also nice: no long walks from stage to stage! The DJ line up at Buiten Westen 2013 Amsterdam is done by some of the best party collectives in town: Pleinvrees, Rekorder, Next Monday’s Hangover, BlackOut, PaardenKracht and VBX.
