Tickets for Amsterdam King's Day celebrations on sale Thursday

Amsterdam will be hosting five large parties on King's Day on April 27th this year. There will also be many markets and smaller stages for live music, the municipality announced in a press release on Wednesday. Ticket sales for the large events start tomorrow.

The five large parties are Loveland van Oranje in Meerpark, Oranjebloesem on Pampuslaan, Kingsland Festival at RAI, Nassau Festival at Olympisch Gebied and Kroongetuie on Turbinestraat. No tickets will be sold at the door, they can only be bought in advance. Tickets will be on sale from noon tomorrow, February 9th, until 11:00 a.m. on April 27th.

This year the big events will again take place outside of the city center area. This is a measure the municipality started taking in 2012, in an effort to reduce problems and spread out the crowds.
