It’s the month where we normally say goodbye to summer and slowly see the green leaves change into a yellow color. But September also gives us Elke’s birthday (happy birthday to meeee), enough light and sunshine to get through the day and lot’s of cool events! Enjoy the Amsterdam Event Calendar for September.
Amsterdam Fringe Festival
When? 7th – 17th of September, De Brakke Grond
What? Theater, Dance and everything crazy
For 11 days the Amsterdam Fringe Festival will be presenting theater and dance by talented new, undiscovered and untamed makers at more than 30 venues across Amsterdam. Fringe is open and un-curated. We present a varied program featuring artists from a wide range of backgrounds, origins and futures. The festival is an ode to the madness of the stage and to independence of spirit and it is a plea for artistic freedom. A big, fat, heartfelt embrace of experimentation in the true sense of the word: one whose outcome is able to effect a real surprise. amsterdamfringefestival.nl
