Amsterdam’s premier music event Amsterdam Music Festival (AMF) returned for a sold-out 6th edition last weekend. The annual overnight event showcases the world’s finest DJ’s and is home to DJ Mag’s ‘Top 100 DJ’s’ awards ceremony. This year, over 40,000 fans gathered from 100 countries to own the night at Amsterdam’s Johan Cruijff Arena and celebrate another year of incredible music and talent. 

Kicking off the event was Belgian DJ and producer Lost Frequencies who started the party with his iconic and sound and style. Following the artist was the world’s most energetic house duo Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano who delivered their signature sound. The newly crowned #1 DJ in the world, Martin Garrix, took the title for the third year in a row and celebrated with a truly mind blowing performance. With a perfect combination of his classic tracks and previews of his newly released EP ‘BYLAW’, the entire arena was brought to life with this spectacular set.

With Amsterdam’s most influential party well and truly underway, the world premiere of ‘Two Is One’ saw 40,000 fans and millions more online witness an exclusive b2b set from David Guetta and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Following the history making performance was Swedish house veterans Axwell /\ Ingrosso who performed what may have been their last show as a duo, in the lead up to the highly anticipated Swedish House Mafia world tour.
