The Basics

15 July 2017
Amsterdam, Netherlands

Buiten Westen is an outdoor electronic music festival in Amsterdam. Turning six this year, the festival is looking to maintain its momentum after a great five year anniversary party last summer.

With six stages, Buiten Westen prides itself on representing a range of styles within the house and techno genres by offering some of the best DJs outside of the mainstream.

Taking place in the Ouderkerkerplas park, the site features everything from woods to a beach-fronted lake, as well as gourmet food/drink stalls, a vintage market, carnival area and a conscious club to help explore one's inner life.
