#06 | July 18 | Buiten Westen | Tickets | Westerpark, Amsterdam |
Translated word for word, Buiten Westen essentially signifies the outgoing, spirited and spontaneous vibe and crowd that want to shrug all their problems off their shoulders and like true hedonists seize the day for every second its got. WesterPark tasks the festival with freedom to chain together various elements of which they’re strongly influenced. It’s much like a fairy tale where each minuscule detail refers back to what the organizers strongly believe in. The wilderness, the open space, their choice of artists or even carnival rides are taken as an opportunity to project their vision. No-brainers this year are Lil Louis, Italojohnson, Culoe De Song, Kerri Chandler and Delano Smith.
