Start Of Cultural Season

uitmarkt_logoThe Uitmarkt is a vibrant three-day celebration of the Netherlands cultural scene! It started yesterday, August 28 and will finish on Sunday August 30. It is the largest annual festival in the Netherlands, officially launching the new cultural season by showcasing the very best in music, art, theatre, dance, opera, literature and cabaret performances. Some 2,000 performers take to almost 30 Amsterdam venues, producing 290+ events while entertaining 500,000 visitors throughout the weekend. What’s more, it’s all free!

Museumplein and Leidseplein – the cultural heart of Amsterdam – are home to the Uitmarkt this year! Performances are held outdoors and indoors at numerous theatres, museums and venues near these two primary locations. A wealth of information is available at stands on the Museumplein.

    1. Okay, but you have to stand in line with 500.000 others to see a clip of their program of the coming year.

      I bought my tickets in advance, in September to see Karin Bloemen (world famous in Benelux), in October Heels4Fun*, and in November to the English cast of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, including an after-party. These 3 can’t be seen on Uitmarkt because their shows are already sold out.

      *Heels4Fun and their Love Boot is done by 4 dragqueens I know.
