AMF (Amsterdam Music Festival) is one of EDM’s biggest nights of the year.
The festival was the creation of ID&T and ALDA, two huge players in the Dutch dance industry, that came to fruition in 2013.
Taking place at the Johan Cruijff ArenA – the famous football stadium in the south-east of Amsterdam, this one-night-only festival brings in audiences from all over the world year after year in October.
AMF focuses solely on EDM, attracting tens of thousands of electronic dance music lovers to party from dusk to dawn.
Internationally known DJs are a common sight at this festival, as AMF brings in the biggest names in the world to Amsterdam. Some artists that have performed here are Alesso, Steve Angello, DJ Snake, David Guetta and Armin van Buuren.
AMF’s 2022 edition date is 22 October, 2022. Go get your AMF tickets on Soundclub, the social app for live music experiences covering +2,000 international festivals.

Here’s everything you need to know about AMF.
The festival took place in Rai Amsterdam with around 30 of the world’s best DJs performing in three areas. Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Alesso were just a part of the impressive lineup at AMF’s first edition.
The Amsterdam Dance Event has been an annual gathering of the electronic music industry since 1996. Over the span of five days and nights, Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) hosts over 1,000 events in 200 locations, which includes AMF at the Johan Cruijff ArenA.
In 2015, the AMF extended the festivities to two nights and it became the number one event in the whole ADE. 2016 had the largest edition of AMF yet, with performances spread over five separate days in three different locations: Heineken Music Hall, Johan Cruijff ArenA and Ziggo Dome.
Every year at this festival, DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs Awards crown the number one DJ in the world. Hardwell won two consecutive years in 2013 and 2014. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Martin Garrix have also won it multiple times before David Guetta snagged the title in 2020, maintaining his victory until today.
AMF’s 2019 edition was the most successful one of all, according to ALDA CEO Allan Hardenberg. More than 40,000 fans flocked to Johan Cruijff ArenA from over 100 countries, breaking previous attendance records of the festival. Tickets to the festival were also sold out at record breaking speed.
AMF, like many other live events, was not able to take place in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Forced to get creative to find a solution, the festival’s organizers came up with AMF.tv, and they made this available to anyone from around the world who wanted to tune in.
It was a huge success, bringing in over seven million fans from more than 120 different countries to the platforms AMF.tv, djmag.tv and other channels.
With four different VIP options, this festival really puts a lot of thought into providing the best possible experience for its attendees.

If you want to feel extra special, the VIP Premium package provides access to unlimited food and drinks (alcoholic ones too!), a viewing deck and hospitality services on top of everything else.

AMF introduced Party Pit: an exclusive dance area where world-famous DJs perform. Located just two meters from the stage, lucky fans might even be able to interact with the stars of the show as the pit is basically inside the DJ booth!
The Party Pit Upgrade is available for purchase after you buy a ticket, so go and get one before they’re all sold out.
