Who, what, where and when? 🤷🏽‍♀️

AMF is a big event with a lot going on. To make sure everyone can go to the event well-prepared, we've written down the most asked questions.

  • Who is AMF for?
    For all lovers of dance, house, trance and electronic music!
  • What is there to do?
    During AMF you get the chance to see big artists in the EMD world perform in the Johan Cruijff ArenA and you're there when the DJ Mag Top 100 gets revealed! On top of that, you can walk almost anywhere in the ArenA freely. This means you could watch Armin van Buuren from a seat in the first ring and Tiësto from the field, or the other way around. The choice is yours!
  • What do I wear?
    We don't give each other weird looks at this event, so everyone should feel free to wear whatever they want to!
  • Where is AMF?
    In the Johan Cruijff ArenA in Amsterdam.
  • Where can I get tickets?
    AMF is completely sold out. There is no ticket sale at the counters. We do not recommend buying tickets from organisations or people other than ADE.
  • Where can I get inside?
    Visitors with a General Admission or GA Raver Ticket can use entrances A, B, C, G, H, J, M and K. For all other visitors the right entrance will be mentioned on the ticket.

    Visitors with an ADE Pro Pass can get a ticket at the counters of the Johan Cruijff ArenA. First come is first serve.
  • Where can I smoke?
    It is not allowed to smoke in the Johan Cruijff ArenA. It is also not possible to go outside and back inside just to smoke, since every ticket cannot be used anymore once it has been scanned upon entry. This means that when you leave the Johan Cruijff ArenA, you cannot get inside anymore for any reason.
  • Where can I buy earplugs?
    You can buy earplugs on different locations in the ArenA. They can be found at the info point on Arenadek South, Plein van de Toekomst, and at the Locker points on level 4.

    The counters of the Johan Cruijff ArenA are open only for questions, information or picking up a ticket with an ADE Pro Pass. They will be open on Saturday from 18:30 until 24:00 and are placed between entrance C and E.
  • What do I do if I or someone else needs (medical) help during AMF?
