The event generally sells out months in advance and welcomes people from dozens of nationalities, transforming the iconic Johan Cruijff ArenA into a sea of flags.

Now at the dawn of a new decade, AMF is showing the first signs of what’s to come in the future. By broadening the spectrum of artists on its line-up, AMF is growing with the times and taking note of the rapidly growing popularity of new sounds within the scene. AMF is ready to embrace a new era in dance music and is proud to offer a platform of this size to the next generation of artists.
