Uitmarkt opens cultural season in Amsterdam
Annually attracting more than 450,000 visitors, the Uitmarkt is one of the country’s most popular cultural events and the traditional opening of the cultural season. The festival features more than 450 performances by some 2,000 artists. From classical to kid-friendly, hip-hop to dance and theatre to jazz – there’s something for everyone.
In addition to performances at the festival's large outdoor venues, there's also the Manuscripta book market, Uitmarkt Junior for the kids and an abundance of information booths and stands. Because all the artists and organisations involved volunteer their time, the Uitmarkt has managed to remain a free festival.
