Amsterdam’s Milkshake is bringing all the boys and girls to the Westerpark yard on Sunday, July 22.
Under the tag line, “For boys who love girls who love girls who love boys who love boys…” the inaugural Milkshake Festival will present five stages, featuring music, dancing, performance art, and an all-out celebration of Amsterdam’s liberal character.
As stated on their website, the outdoor festival will promote a strict “Free Love & Tolerance” policy, inviting everyone to be themselves: “Life is a party thanks to the great diversity of skin colors, religions, sexual preferences and male and female forms… Thick, thin, small, large, gay, straight, trans, travo, black or white: people are the salt of the earth and this is what we celebrate!”
So check your attitude at the gate, and take a big gulp of Amsterdam’s thick, frothy, all-welcoming blend. Confused? Don’t worry, they can teach you, but they’ll have to charge… an entrance fee of 32.50 euros (about $40).
