The sixth edition of the world’s most open-minded and unapologetically diverse music festival Milkshakerecently took place in Amsterdam on the 29, 30 July . The larger than life festival wowed a sell-out technicolour crowd with standout performances from Village People, Miss Kittin and a ‘Last Christmas’ stage complete with show machines, tinsel and dancing snowmen dedicated to Wham! in honour of the late George Michael.

Sunday was awash with sunshine and festival goers were treated to an exclusive performance from one of disco’s most iconic acts, Village People, who won over the crowd with legendary hits YMCA, Macho Man and In the Navy as well as stages hosted by Supertoys, Pakhaus Berlin, Vieze Poezendek, This Is How We Drag Galore and Totally Female amongst others.
