Spring Break Amsterdam has launched details for its 2018 event, taking place from Sunday 8th April to Tuesday 10th April.

A standalone festival tickets costs just £99, plus Spring Break Amsterdam has it all covered with travel, accommodation, pub crawl, and boat party add-ons available for varying budgets and requirements. Spring Break Amsterdam is the ultimate way to get lost, inspired and bewildered by the many sights the city has to offer, by day and by night, alongside thousands of other like-minded people.
Since launch in 2015, Spring Break Amsterdam has grown exponentially, from first taking 400 festival goers from the UK to The Netherlands, to now hosting around 7,000 of them and still growing! As its American inspired name suggests, the trip attracts students looking for escapism and discovery, but also a much broader group of professionals wishing to explore one of Europe’s most popular capital cities. One thing these groups have in common is the very same ticket to the festival playground created by Spring Break Amsterdam.
By day, guests are encouraged to explore Amsterdam’s many cultural and tourist hotspots, with official trip guides on hand to help get the most from the stay. From the Anne Frank House and the Red Light District, to the Van Gogh Museum and the canal boat tours, there’s so much to see and do. There’s no hand-holding though, guests can fill their time doing as they please in this city-discovery style holiday.
By night, Spring Break Amsterdam is the host as it turns the city centre into its festival map. Each of the four venues becomes its own festival stage, from the 2,000 capacity Melkweg – housed in a former milk factory – to the quirky Club NYX sprawling over three floors with urban graffiti décor, plus other leading electronic music venues, Escape and Air. Clubbers jump from venue to venue as they seek out their favourite acts.
The first wave of acts to be announced for Spring Break Amsterdam include headliners Chase & Status who’ll deliver in traditional bass heavy and frenetic style; leading garage duo, My Nu Leng, and ‘Godfather of Grime’, Wiley. Support comes from a class lineup featuring drum and bass legends, High Contrast and General Levy; grime MC, Big Narstie; and jackin’ house DJ / producer, Chris Lorenzo. Dozens more acts are still to be announced.
Spring Break Amsterdam has bundled together accommodation and travel into one neat package, to make things as easy as possible, including hostel and premium hostel options, sleeping from two to ten people.
Travel wise, Spring Break Amsterdam runs coach services departing from London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Bournemouth and Plymouth, each hosted by an official event rep. The overnight journey takes 12 hours so guests can sleep through the night and wake up in the ‘dam where they’ll then be escorted to their chosen accommodation. Guests can of course, opt out of the coach service altogether and take their own route by any means they choose.
Tickets for Spring Break Amsterdam 2018 come in a variety of packages to suit varying budgets and requirements.
