Following the measures just confirmed by the Dutch government, festival organizer ALDA has decided to cancel the 2021 edition of AMFThe event will return next year and is set to grace the iconic Johan Cruijff ArenA once again on 22 October 2022.

This year, thousands of fans were intending to come together in Amsterdam to mark an emphatic return for music festivals in the Netherlands. However, current restrictions detail that only indoor events with a maximum capacity of 75% (until midnight) are allowed. Unfortunately, AMF, the largest event during Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), does not meet the aforementioned conditions, and, therefore, cannot take place on Saturday 16 October as initially planned.

The disappointing news arrives despite the fact that tens of thousands of people in ten different cities across the Netherlands took to the streets to urge the cabinet to further reopen the events sector, last weekend.

In 2020, the festival celebrated a momentous landmark having hosted the DJ Mag Top 100 reveal for an incredible 10 years. In that time the likes of Armin van BuurenDavid GuettaHardwellMartin Garrix, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have all scooped the No.1 DJ spot. Even though there won’t be a physical event with partygoers this year, ALDA will work on an alternative method of crowning the number 1 DJ to keep that tradition alive. Last year they connected 7 million fans worldwide for a unique edition of AMF online, where they pieced together an incredible lineup across various, spectacular locations around Amsterdam. Information on what may happen instead this year is imminent; fans should, therefore, keep a keen eye on the AMF socials, as the event organisers won’t let AMF 2021 go without some kind of a celebration.

For fans with tickets for AMF 2021, tickets will be automatically transferred to AMF 2022. Ticket holders who would instead like to find out about refunds for the 2021 edition, can find out more information regarding their purchases here. Other ALDA concepts also have a new date, as A Day At The Park is now scheduled for Saturday 17 September 2022 and ASOT1000 (A State Of Trance) will take place on the weekend of 18 & 19 February 2022.

AMF will continue its legacy on 22 October 2022.
