There is a man roaming the streets and festivals of Amsterdam this summer. He will put an instant smile on your face, while at the same time sparking insecurity towards your dancing skills. Meet “de Gast” (“the Dude”), Buiten Westen festival’s secret weapon for their fourth edition this July.

The Dude has figured in promotional videos for the festival where he dances as if his life depends on it at some typical Amsterdam scenes like the Magere Brug, Nieuwmarkt and the metro. So without telling too much: sit back, relax and get ready for the Dude.
