With its most ambitious lineup to date, Buiten Westen 2017 could be the single-day festival of the summer in Amsterdam. For the second year hosting at the expansive Ouderkerkerplas, there will be six different stages set amongst the serenity of beaches, water, fields, and woods, “where melodies glow and rhythms parade.” The July 15 festival will play host to local festival circuit veterans, German tribal-techno masters, world-class live acts, disco turntablists, and the finest tastemakers in house music today.
Promising a full festival experience, Buiten Westen attendees might find themselves riding the famous ferris wheel, participating in a yoga workshop, perusing the vintage market, or enjoying a nice meal from a variety of local vendors providing locally sourced ingredients. Buiten Westen 2017 will be the closest one can get to a musical, bohemian paradise – if only for a day.
Notable acts performing: Patrice Baumel, DJ Koze, Moodyman, Stephan Bodzin (Live), Gerd Janson, Alle Farben, Worakls (Live), Rampa and Adam Port.
