There must be something of interest to you at Vondelpark’s open air theatre; Jazz music, or music of all sorts maybe? Dancing? Cabaret Performances? Stand up comedy?, in July Amsterdam Roots Festival also brings musicians from all corners of the world, & mid August marks Grachten festival of music.

Autumn (September to November): Tempratures start to drop, hence a low season with cheaper airfares and accommodation costs, this is when cultural events move from outdoors into the indoors of selected restaurants and cafes.
