Amsterdam Roots Location

Exact location The festival is on walking distance (10 min) nearby train station Muiderpoort, metro station Weesperplein and the trams 3, 7 en 9 stop at the park. There is free car parking on Sunday but we advice you to come by public transport.

Where to drink / smoke Well Amsterdam’s bars, nightclubs and cafes need no introduction. Perhaps that is the reason why it is difficult to recommend any specific one ! They are all over the centre of the city – happy hunting.

Previous performers at the at this Festival include The Gipsy Kings, Ska Cubano & Babylon Circus.

Main venues for the Amsterdam Roots International Music Festival are Paradiso, Oosterpark, Concertgebouw, Tropentheater & Melkweg.

The Gay scene Amsterdam is one of the only cities in the world with every scene in it. There are plenty of gay bars in Amsterdam and are not hard to find.
