On the 27th of April it is Kingsday 2018 in Amsterdam. The whole city erupts in joyous celebration as merrymakers take to the streets, canals, parks, squares and everywhere in between, dressed in head-to-toe orange. Party King’s Night away (the night before King’s Day) with the biggest street party of the year with live music, concerts and DJs, and wake up early for the citywide street market (vrijmarkt) where people sell their second-hand things. Dare to be orange!
