Milkshake Festival announced a tribute to George Michael at it’s line up for the 2017 edition. The tribute is titled “Wham’Bam Thank You Ma’am”. It will express ‘that being kind to each other is not just something for Christmas time’. This is a reference to one of George Michael’s biggest hits, Last Christmas, and the outpouring of grieve and love when the singer died at Christmas last year.
Line up announced
The two day festival in the Westerpark area in Amsterdam is on the 29th and 30th of July. It wil have several stages with each its’ own performances, light shows and music.
