Time flies

18hrs Festival is an multi-genre electronic music festival taking place in Amsterdam. A marathon experience, the festival goes on for, you guessed it, 18 straight hours. 

Born out of the idea of melding a daytime festival with an afterparty, the idea has proven to be a hit as 18hrs is heading into its ninth edition this year.

With music spread across six areas, the festival is an outdoor party till 23:00 and then changes gears into a warehouse party till close.
