18 May 2015 - The best festivals of 2015 in the Netherlands!
5 & 6 June
Each year, the Indian Summer Festival is held in the Kop van Noord-Holland. With such a varied line-up, this woodland festival has something for everyone, so you can enjoy dance, pop and rock as well as 80s and 90s music. For more information and tickets see: http://www.indiansummerfestival.nl/
Stayokay Egmond is not very far from the festival ground, so staying at Stayokay is an easy choice.
12, 13 & 14 June
Pinkpop is one of the best known festivals in the Netherlands and the pride of Limburg. This year it celebrates its 46th anniversary. Each year Pinkpop has an impressive line-up and 2015 is no different with artists such as Foo Fighters, Muse and Robbie Williams.

Combine your visit to the festival with a city break in Maastricht. Stayokay Maastricht is the perfect starting point!
3 & 4 July
In summer there are also plenty of festivals in Amsterdam. PITCH is an Amsterdam festival that is held almost in the centre of the capital. It’s no mainstream party. You won’t find any soppy singer-songwriters or bouncy folk here. So what will you find there? Well, you’re guaranteed a whole lot of raw electronic music.

Take the easy option of cycling to PITCH and spend the night at one of the Stayokay hostels in Amsterdam.
21, 22 & 23 August
It’s the number one festival in the Netherlands and every year it sells out in no time, but you’ve just got to be there! Lowlands has been held in Biddinghuizen every year since 1993 and it always has a fantastic line-up. This year is no exception, with acts such as Major Lazer and Paolo Nutini on stage.

29 & 30 August
The sensational festival close to Amsterdam is Mysteryland. Here, it’s all about techno, house, dance, hip-hop and electro. The line-up includes well-known and lesser-known DJs from all over the world and it attracts huge numbers of people every year.
For more information and tickets see: http://www.mysteryland.nl/
Stayokay Haarlem or Stayokay Amsterdam Zeeburg
The festival is organised close to Amsterdam in the Haarlemmermeer, which makes sleeping at Stayokay Haarlem or Stayokay Amsterdam Zeeburg the perfect choice. Stayokay Zeeburg even has a special Mysteryland package!
