ZeeZout Festival 2017
ZeeZout are one of the best-known organisers of late-night parties in the Netherlands. Over the past six years and across multiple cities (from Amsterdam to Rotterdam and Utrecht) the team has unleashed night after terrific night. In doing so, they have conquered the hearts of a demanding and informed – but inquisitive – public. Their recipe is simple: bring together big international names and the crème de la crème of tomorrow’s top talent. And the mix is working. ZeeZout launched their festival in 2015, having already been guests of honour at numerous other festivals hosted by big promoters such as Next Monday’s Hangover, Pleinvrees and Cartel. It was a smashing success and this year they’re back with more.
The third edition, which takes place at the lovely location Blijburg Aan Zee, boasts a rock solid line-up. Among the performers are British duo Bicep, Tornado Wallace, DVS1 and Mike Serevito. The atmosphere is always intimate and friendly. So nothing can stop you now from going on a musical adventure at ZeeZout Festival 2017!

On a sandy peninsula located just outside Amsterdam's bustling city center is Blijburg aan Zee, a beautiful venue and the city's go-to beach destination. Adjacent to a vast lake, the IJmeer, you can find beaches and sand dunes with a spectacular view.
Oranjebloesem takes over this idyllic place with four stages programmed with various strands of quality, underground music.

Home to more than 300 festivals and a countless number of music events which span all tastes and genres, Amsterdam has found its way to the top of the list as a world-class party destination.
With a population of just under a million, it may come as a surprise that such a small city has so much to offer. Nonetheless, Amsterdam has undoubtedly imposed itself as one of the hottest european capitals of electronic music, alongside Berlin and London, mainly thanks to its late legendary club Trouw, but also for its hosting of the internationally renowned ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) which welcomes every year an endless stream of the biggest DJs in the world, spanning the entire spectrum of electronic sub-genres.
But don’t get us wrong, the capital of the Netherlands is not only about clubbing and holds many surprises. That’s right, ladies and gents, whether you are a leather-clad guitar-loving buff craving to headbang to the most edgy indie-rock riffs, or a nostalgic hippie-chic fellow in search of a one-in-a-lifetime musical journey, you can rest assured that Amsterdam has what it takes to suit even the most unconventional booty shakers!
