Two day dance-fest at the home of Ajax FC
Amsterdam Music Festival is a young festival with a burgeoning reputation. Kind of like a young footballer (stay with us here), it's a little bit wet behind the ears, a little bit cocky, but packs lots of talent. And that's about as far as we're going to take the football link between AMF and it's location at Ajax FC's football ground, or soccer, if you're American and like boring sports.
A dance festival in an iconic venue, this two-dayer south of the city centre packs a hell of a punch despite only starting up in 2013, and is one of the most well-organised young festivals around. Easy to get to, safe, and lots of fun, AMF is a great choice for dance fans who can't be arsed to wear wellies for three days and sleep in a tent. If you do fancy that, you could probably try pitching your tent up outside, but the stewards will probably move you along.
If you rearrange the letters of AMF, you get MAF, which is what young kids calls Maths these days, appaz.
