Awesome sound system
What’s worse than showing up to a music festival and the sound system sucks? Luckily Loveland is known for its epic sound system. You’ll be able to hear the beats loud and clear, even if you’re chilling at the very back of the crowd. With over 20 years experience, you can expect nothing less than the very best quality production - think over the top staging, incredible street food options, graffiti artists and the element of surprise…
Just a 20 minute cycle from the city centre, with green, open space and amazing lake views, there’s no doubting that Loveland’s venue in Sloterpark is one to be topped. You can hardly get any closer to the city centre unless you’re partying in the street or on the canals (and this isn’t one of those Amsterdam festivals). Sloterpark is just 20-25 minutes bike ride from either of our Flying Pig hostels, so you can carry on the party back in the city centre once the festival is finished and roll into bed when you’re done.
Be as crazy or chilled as you want
Whether you’re the kind of festival-goer that gets right in there with the crowd or you prefer to sit back and chill to the music in the sun, Loveland is one for everyone. With 6 stages to choose from, there’s always going to be different kinds of music you can go and listen to. Plus, there’s Relax Island and Art Island within the Loveland grounds, where you can chill out and have a little break from the giant crowds and beating music if you feel like it.
It keeps sustainability in mind
The masterminds behind Loveland feel that sustainability is one of their core responsibilities. It’s the 14th year that Sloterpark has been used as the festival venue, so of course it’s important that the organisers take care and respect it. Lovedland works with the Amsterdam City Government, local residents as well as experts in sustainability to ensure they’re doing all the right things. The festival team even do their bit for society by providing work for people within educational institutes as well as refugees with a permit and others in a less fortunate position. Flora, fauna, mobility, waste, energy… It’s all on their minds so you can party knowing Sloterpark and the environment is being looked after properly.
