Spring Break Amsterdam has become a rite of passage for students all over the UK, not just for its huge musical offerings, but also for the many other exiting thrills and cultural highlights the storied and historic Dutch capital offers. From boat trips down the canal to world famous museums, the Red Light District, rich cafe culture, and so much more, the opportunities to get lost and explore are endless. From the most party hungry young students to those professionals who like the high life, they all unite in one common theme as they seek out a quality and credible festival experience.
The lineup this year is as hard hitting as ever, featuring the previously announced big names such Rudimental, Big Narstie, Lady Leshurr, Holy Goof and DJ Q. Whilst more A-list acts been announced, the latest additions also feature plenty of hot young acts for true music heads seeking out the stars of tomorrow.
The latest big addition is MK, the dub house don from New York who defines his own niche style and has released on the likes of Hot Creations, as well as running his own Area 10 brand, which sees him host events all over the world. MK exclusively joins the Spring Break Lineup in week two only, while Hannah Wants plays an exclusive set to clubbers joining Spring Break in week one. She is a real house tastemaker who has a bass heavy sound that has taken her to huge gigs all over Ibiza this summer, with a big European tour planned in the next few months, all of which proves just how in demand she is, next to releases on labels like Dirtybird and Simma Black and a famous official mix for Fabric London.
Also amongst the phase two additions is Mason Maynard, whose huge track ‘Puffy’ on Nothing Else Matters and releases like his ‘13th Street’ EP (supported by Jamie Jones) on Solardo’s Sola Recordimprint, as well as being ‘Solardo Sessions’ tour DJ, have made him a hot property. Then comes the legendary garage duo DJ Luck & MC Neat, Brighton’s Relentless records associate Kideko, plus fast rising stars Kanine, K Motionz, Jaguar and Hott Like Detroit.
Spring Break Amsterdam is the ultimate way to experience the famous city with a world class soundtrack, and for that reason the festival has grown from just a few hundred people in 2015 to 7,000 in 2018 – and it’ll double capacity in 2019. The fact the celebrated venues are all so close together makes it easy to explore the musical program each night, with the 2,000 capacity Melkweg – housed in a former milk factory, quirky Club NYX sprawling over three floors with urban graffiti décor, leading electronic music venues, Escape and Air, and the stylish Claire, all suited on Rembrandtplein so revelers can quickly jump from place to place until their heart’s content.

The festival only ticket for weeks one or two costs £99 and grants entry to each club event over the three days. Add on £89 for basic accommodation (hostel) or for £110, stay in a more premium level of accommodation.
