The Amsterdam Dance Event, which runs through Sunday, is billed as the world’s biggest club festival for electronic music. The numbers certainly impress: 800 artists performing in 75 venues over five days, attracting some 200,000 clubbers — 30,000 of them tourists.

The three-part program — conference, festival and “playground” — ensures full days and nights for party people. Artists and DJs from around the world take to the stages of clubs throughout the city.

Revelers must buy a ticket for individual events. Several venues offer free admission.
