The Netherlands and its peoples wear orange on the 27th April to celebrate the King’s birthday. Far from being a dull day full of solemn events, King’s Day is a synonym of cheer and liveliness.
The city of Amsterdam fills up with people coming from everywhere in the Netherlands, offering a wide range of DJ performances, from commercial music to techno.
It is the moment to grab some beers or a bottle of wine and hit the streets and canals to make an open air party (and take pictures, how not!), enjoying a joyful atmosphere.
The biggest event in the Netherlands is not disappointing. I cannot wait for next King’s Day next year.
