Appelsap Fresh Music Festival brings world-class Hiphop, Grime, R&B, electronic music and Dutch talent to Amsterdam.
Since starting out as a free summer jam back in 2000, Appelsap has grown into the groundbreaking festival it is today. Its line-up ranges from local talent to the elite of world-class Hiphop, Grime, R&B and progressive electronic music. Despite the festival’s continuing growth, the convivial atmosphere is still as tangible as it was during the early days. Besides fresh music, there is a wide range of international cuisine and activities for kids (who can get in for free under 12).
Appelsap is famous for introducing fresh acts to a Dutch Crowd. In previous years Appelsap premiered acts like Kendrick Lamar, Travi$ Scott, Migos, Young Thug, Skepta, Stormzy, J Hus, Dave, Disclosure, 070Shake, slowthai, Lunice, Flatbush Zombies, French Montana, Danny Brown, ScHoolboy Q, Theophilus London and music platforms like Boiler Room and Soulection in the Netherlands. Other names that billed earlier Appelsap line ups are Lil Wayne, Hudson Mohawke, Waka Flocka Flame, Clipse, Action Bronson, Pharoahe Monch, Fat Joe, Rustie, DJ EZ, J. Dilla, Rich Medina, Krept & Konan and 67. We count some of the world’s best DJ’s as our good friends: Tiffany Calver, Cinnaman, Amy Becker, Benji-B, Oneman, Patta Soundsystem, Abstract, Vic Crezée and Mairo Nawaz are all well known guests who often return to the festival.

Compact cameras are allowed, but professional cameras are not permitted. With professional cameras we refer to cameras with interchangeable lenses and bigger professional digital cameras.
