At the end of July each year, Milkshake festival takes places in the center of Amsterdam at Westerpark. For all who love: Milkshake is a festival with a clear message about respect, freedom, love, tolerance, and encourages out of the box thinking. A unique collaboration between two of the city’s major clubs, Paradiso and AIR, the festival is home to multiple stages, each with its own defining character and acts drenched in breathtaking décor, performance art, and surprising acts.
Milkshake Festival shows that entertainment, music choice, choice of clothing and status has nothing to do with sexuality. Life is just a party thanks to the great diversity of skin colours, religions, sexual preferences and male and female forms. Milkshake wants to celebrate the city’s initiatives and is an impetus to bring the courtesy and friendly manners back into society. Thick, thin, small, large, gay, straight, trans, black or white: people are the salt of the earth and this is what we celebrate!
