Tomorrow it's Koningsdag, a.k.a. Kingsday, in the Netherlands! Last year I made a post with my favourite festivals on this special day. This year I couldn't exclude another post like this. On Koningsdag we celebrate the birthday of king Willem-Alexander.
In each town, city and village you'll be able to find lots of games, funfairs and flea markets. And if you're not interested in playing games or shopping low-budget second-hand items, but instead you like partying and madness with the greatest deejays, I advise you to take a look at these festivals below!

It's probably a well-known Dutch tradition already, called Koningsdag (Kingsday). As you've read on my previous post, it was the perfect day to go to a dance festival in The Netherlands. Everyone wears orange, all people are in a crazy mood and all you have to do is party along and get crazy with them. And of course that's what I did too.
On my previous post I've recommended many festivals with genres like house, electronic, and techno and I've visited one of them: Kingsland in Amsterdam RAI. I've seen Martin Garrix, Oliver Heldens, Fedde Le Grand, Headhunterz, Hardwell, Dannic, Quintino, Ummet Ozcan, Pep & Rash, Gregor Salto and even more!
Koningsdag ( KINGSDAY ) house & techno & electronic events
Kingsday: a day Dutch people celebrate their king's birthday. It used to be queensday, but since the previous queen crowned her son king, the date and name have been changed. So what do the Dutchies do on that day? First of all: they don't go to school and shop owners close their stores, because everywhere you go a massive party will take place! The tradition is that the King and Queen visit one of the towns in The Netherlands to join their festivities. Every town has festivities, such as street sales and (typical Dutch) games / performances.
It doesn't matter how old you are, there is always something amazing to do on this day. Even the Dutch greatest DJs stay in Holland. You might guess it: it is THE day for a perfect festival or dance event. Now I've sorted out the best House, Electronic ánd Techno festivals for you. Check them out!
