Everybody likes to celebrate their birthday, even our king! We party like animals on his birthday that we cerebrate on the 27th of April. Everybody in the country is wearing orange, so bring your best orange outfit! We biggest parties are hosted in Amsterdam. We made a selection of the best parties especially for you.
City of Amsterdam
The city centre is filled with people in orange on Kingsday. If you don’t have a particular idea of a party, just walk through the city and celebrate our king Willem-Alexander. There are stand with food and drinks on every corner. Feel free to dance, because there is music everywhere. People from Amsterdam are also selling old stuff like clothes, furniture and many other “treasures”. If you like vintage visit the Vrijmarkt. There are people selling it on many places, but we suggest to go to the Sarphatipark.
Like to go wild on a festival? If so: Kingsland festival Amsterdam is the place for you. It’s the biggest indoor and outdoor festival on Kingsday. The biggest DJs in the world will be playing electronic music. All you have to do is dance to it. Draped all in orange, everyone at this party is charged and ready to hear big beats. Headliners are: Alesso, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Vini Vici and W&W.
Price: From €39,50
We also have a cheaper, but still real fun option for you. Cartel Kinsday has big headliners as well. The festival will take place indoor, outdoor, day and night on the 27th op April. We hope you brought your dancings shoes, because the party will go on for 18 hours long. The great thing about this festival is that they have a plan B in case of bad weather. Part of their day program is scheduled to take place outdoor at the Westerunie, but in case of rain they will move indoors. This is the only event on Kingsday that offers this.
Price: From €17,50
NDSM Vrijhaven at NDSM-werf
This is a great event if you like to take it nice and easy. This free event is literally for everyone since they have activities for the entire family. Have some food, drinks and dance to good music. The NDSM-werf is easy to go to. You only have to take the free ferry to the NDSM-Werf.
3x NYX presents Kings & Queens
We like to think that we’re very openminded and welcoming to everybody and so is our king. The gay club NYX will not only celebrate the king, but also all the people at the party. They’ll treat everybody at the party like a king or a queen. So dust off your crown jewels and take that golden carriage straight to the club. Cheers to you and the king!
