Since its launch in 2015, Spring Break Amsterdam has now established itself as the most essential weekend getaway for real music lovers who want a truly unique party experience mixed with a cultural weekend away in one of Europe’s most rich and storied cities. It has become a rite of passage for UK students, and because of the carefully considered line-up and the host city, Spring Break Amsterdam also appeals to a wider crowd of clubbers. From professionals to party animals, Spring Break Amsterdam is a weekend of discovery, world class music and endless possibility in the adult playground that is Amsterdam.
Event Organiser, Connor White said, “As the years have gone by, we have watched Spring Break become a tradition, a rite of passage for music lovers and adventurers alike. It’s grown exponentially from attracting 400 people in 2015 to around 7,000 in 2018. If you haven’t done it yet, it’s about 'Dam time you did!”
The 2018 lineup showcased world class DJ sets alongside live shows from the likes of Big Narstie, Chase & Status, Sub Focus and My Nu Leng. The venues hosting Spring Break Amsterdam are truly revered and become standalone festival stages. All within walking distance, they range from 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. Clubbers jump from venue to venue as they seek out their favourite acts.
Once again, the 2019 line-up packs a real punch across multiple genres. The first wave of announcements is headed up by UK chart toppers and global stars Rudimental, who are set to unleash their much-anticipated new album Toast To Our Differences hot on the heels of huge singles like ‘These Days’ and ‘Summer Love’ with Rita Ora.
Then comes the return of Channel 4 host and grime kingpin Big Narstie, who is much loved for his sense of humour and boisterous rhymes. He’s joined by the always dizzying DJ Q, underground tech house artist Eli Brown, multi-genre mash-up man Holy Goof, cult ragga MC General Levy, multi-genre, cut-n-paste DJ star Jaguar Skills and grime innovator Lady Leshurr.

These include, an unadulterated, four-hour boat party hosted by big name DJs (£29); a guided pub crawl around the city’s charming array of watering holes with free shots on arrival (£15); the official Spring Break Amsterdam t-shirt to help spot fellow Spring Breakers a mile off (£15); and the VIP upgrade which includes a place on the pub crawl, an official t-shirt, and access to the exclusive VIP areas in each venue, per night (£39).
