The History of 5 Days Off Festival
5 Days Off is a festival that includes music and cultural events in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It started in 2001 as spin-off of Ghent, Belgium’s Ten Days Off festival. The 2009 festival included artists, photography and other events such as a free show called “Wearable Technology: Powered Art and Fashion
5 Days off developed as a spin-off of the 10 days off festival in Ghent and was the first multi-day indoor dance event in the Netherlands. Over the past years, the festival programming has gained in bandwidth considerably. The effort to offer a high-quality cross-cut of international electronic music has returned itself and built 5 days off a strong national and international reputation. It has grown out of a fairly small festival in the Amsterdam Melkweg into a true city-wide festival, which now also involves Paradiso and the Dutch Institute for Media Arts.
