The 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.
