Streetparties @ Amsterdam Pride 2015

One of the traditions of Amsterdam Pride  is a number of street parties.  Just like the King’s Day street parties, they can be extremely popular.
Below we list the most important Pride 2015 streetparties, plus a few smaller interesting ones.

1. The Big Street parties
One of the big parties is undoubtedly going to be the Amstel Street party stage. On Friday July 31 (6pm to 1am), and on Saturday August 1 (2pm to 1 am), the Amstel near Rembrandtplein will be packed with party dwellers.

Another important location is going to be at Zeedijk (a bit oddly translated on the Pride website as ‘Seawall’ in ‘Seawall Street Party’). The location is likely near the cafes De Engel, Queenshead and Barderij, but the website Zeedijk street party shows a location more halfway toward the Nieuwmarkt square.
In any case, go to Zeedijk and follow the noise (and your gaydar)!
This party will be on Friday (6 to 1) and on Saturday (1pm to 1am).

Vivelavie 52.366332, 4.898027 Vivelavie (click here to see Vivelavie on separate map) TO BE CLOSED DOWN! ON JUNE 27, 2017, THERE WILL BE THE FAREWELL PARTY. SEE OUR ARTICLE ON http://www.gaylinc.nl/nightlife/lesbian-bar-vivelavie-closing-down/ ---------------------------------------------------------------- The mainly female audience is self-assured, modern dressed and of all ages: hip youngsters, steady adult couples and lazing singles. It\'s a place for entertaining chats, everyday small talk and just enjoying each others company. No use trying to show off. Just celebrated its 35th birthday, which is exceptional given so many bars have closed over the past years. One of our favourites. Still going strong! Address: Amstelstraat 7 Open: 4pm until late Web: http://www.vivelavie.net
