King’s Day Festival 2019

Amsterdam, Holland | 26th - 29th April 2019

This is the biggest party of the year in the Netherlands, and Stoke will be celebrating it in Amsterdam, the Dutch capital of canals and history, tulips, cannabis and red lights. At King’s Day 2019 we’ll be staying in pre-erected twin-share tents with mattresses and sleeping bags and daily hearty breakfasts. The King’s Day celebrations take place across the city, in its streets, parks and canals and are absolutely soaked in the colour orange.

KING’S DAY, LET’S DO IT DUTCH STYLE

Stoke Travel does it Dutch in 2019 when we hit up the famous streets, canals and parks of Amsterdam for the Netherland’s biggest party of the year, King’s Day. The night on the 26th April the celebrations kick off with a massive party in the city with live music playing in all the main squares. The music ends around 11pm and we’d recommend resting up for tomorrow  as it is a day when the usually liberal and loose Dutchies go wild celebrating the King’s birthday with DJs and bands in the streets, a city-wide flea market, complete with food and drink stalls, while the famous canals jam with boats and barges full of revellers and designed to the nines. 

Staying with Stoke Travel for King’s Day Festival

We’re Europe’s festival specialists, so King’s Day was a no-brainer for us. We’ll make sure that you’re comfortable and that there’s plenty of fun going around with like-minded travellers from all over the world. We’ll feed you a cooked breakfast every morning that you stay with us, then guide you into the party madness of Amsterdam. 

VISIT THE FAMOUS AMSTERDAM WITH STOKE TRAVEL

This city is one of the world’s greats, and has to be high on the bucket list for any traveller with hedonistic tendencies. The historic city is covered with canals and narrow, cobbled streets, tall Dutch people on bikes, and plenty of parks, but most tourists come for the more exciting attractions, the red light district and the coffee shops that don’t sell coffee, but do sell the best weed from around the world, where you can smoke buds, hash, dabs, whatever, in a nice, warm, comfortable and safe environment. When you’re staying with Stoke in Amsterdam you can add canal boat parties to your stay, bike tours through the city, visits to the Anne Frank museum and an Amsterdam pub crawl. Oh, and if you want a real Amsterdam experience consider checking out one of the infamous sex shows, that are less erotic than they are hilarious. Amsterdam is Stoke’s kind of town, you really should come and see it with us.

PRICE: €60 | US$ 72 | £53 | AU$ 95 per night

    What actually is King’s day?
    It is a national holiday where all the Dutchies get drunk together to celebrate their King’s birthday. The King travels to a new city each year and plays games with everyone. This is so they can ultimately celebrate the dutchgoodness that we all love.
    Every square in the town has big djs, bars and turns into a big fat dance party. There is also HUGE flea markets.

    What do I wear?
    Think like an orange, be an orange, definitely wear orange!

    What’s the weather going to be like?
    When in Holland always prepare for the worst and hope for the best!

    Are there shuttles to the campsite/Amsterdam city centre?
    These final details are still being finalised but the Dutchies are known for perfect public transport. Once these are finalised we will pop this information up.
