What do you get if you blend together the unique Free Love and Tolerance Policy of two of the biggest clubs in Amsterdam with a healthy dose of liberalism, art, culture, entertainment and creativity? Milkshake Festival Amsterdam.
Milkshake is a festival whose inception arose from the thought that ‘nothing should be mandatory, anything is possible’. Life is just a party thanks to the great diversity of skin colours, religions, sexual preferences and male and female forms. Thick, thin, small, large, gay, straight, trans, black or white: Milkshake is a true celebration of diversity and freedom of expression.
The Wham’bam Thank You Ma’am stage, a special ode to Wham, in honour of George Michael is set to lend its own defining character, breathtaking decor and performance art, where festival revellers are in for a fun and entertaining ride! ‘Let Milkshake take you to the place, where membership’s a smiling face… Fun and sunshine, there’s enough for everyone!’
The festival will also have both national and international stage hosts in attendance to the festival. Dutch artist Erwin Olaf will tell a story through light, performance, and music, owning a place in the Westerpark. Transformer by Joost van Bellen and Zubrowka International, is about the transformation in many different forms, from falling in love to the transgender community and this is celebrated for the second time in the Milkshake festival.
At Milkshake, the festival where “nothing is mandatory, but anything goes’, Amsterdam and Rotterdam are brotherly represented. “De Trut” (The Bitch), an Amsterdam non-commercial disco for dykes and queers since 1985, provides a good atmosphere and good music. You can also expect Damage by Mister B. Mister B‘s leather and fetish shops are a representative of the fetish scene since 1994. Rotterdam is present again by NOW & WOW and Liberated whilst Gaybar makes his first appearance by Spacemaker and photographer Ari Versluis who does the visuals.
Watch out for a line-up announcement coming very soon!
Milkshake takes place from 29 – 30 July 2017. Book your Milkshake Weekender Ticket from € 79.50 EUR at milkshakefestival.com.
