What to do in August 2019



August 9th – August 18th

The Grachtenfestival returns to the lively city waterways, canals and many other somewhat unusual venues around Amsterdam, transforming the most unlikely spots into stages for the spine-tingling sounds of classical music. Some events are free and for others, you can access them with tickets via the Grachtenfestival website.


Uitmarkt @ Various locations

August 23rd – August 25th

The Uitmarkt is the largest (free) annual festival in the Netherlands, where 200 of the country’s cultural foundations showcase their biggest talking points! This special event kicks off the Dutch cultural season by presenting the best in music, art, theatre, dance, opera, literature and cabaret performances.



Rotterdam Latin Festival @ Zalencentrum Sunrise, Galvanistraat 150

August 16th – August 18th

Rotterdam has a brand-new Latin dance event! Rotterdam Latin Festival, or RLF, is the first three-day Latin dance weekender in Rotterdam. So, if Latin dancing is the meaning and purpose of your life, then you’ll be in heaven, immersing yourself in kizomba, bachata and salsa for three full days.



Lowlands @ Walibi Holland Event Grounds, Spijkweg 30

August 16th – August 18th

One of the most adventurous and exciting festivals in the Netherlands, it draws around 55.000 visitors over three days every year, where the impressive 250 acts are spread over 12 stages.
