It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Cartel Kingsday 2020 is canceled. Due to the continuing battle against COVID-19, the Dutch government stated additional strict measures in an attempt to prevent the virus from spreading any further. And so, all events are canceled until the 1st of June.


This decision weighs heavily on us and diminishes all the love and hard work we’ve put into this event. Though, at the end of the day, the health of our visitors, friends, artists and staff is what matters the most right now.


We are currently working hard to find a solution to this situation together with Westerunie. This is a very unique situation for us – a situation that is way beyond our control – and has forced us to cancel an event for the very first time in 10 years. We appreciate your understanding in this matter and kindly ask you to grant us some time to figure all this out before we come back to you with further details regarding a possible replacement event and tickets.


Please bear with us and most importantly, take care and stay safe.




Cartel Amsterdam & Westerunie crew


Cartel Kingsday is our yearly magnum opus on Holland’s most exuberant national holiday. We celebrate our king’s birthday with an 18 hour long non-stop marathon of the best house and techno. 


Cartel Kingsday takes place indoor, outdoor, day ánd night at the WesterUnie complex on Monday the 27th of April 2020 between 12:00 in the afternoon and 06:00 the next morning.


In case of very bad weather we will move our outdoor day program inside. At night, all the action will take place inside three different rooms in the great, industrial WesterUnie complex. No other Kingsday event in Amsterdam can offer this unique combination of prolonged opening hours, bad weather back-up plans and such a top notch line-up.


All previous editions of Cartel Kingsday have sold out. We expect both parts of this event to sell out again this year. Please notice: we will not have door sale tickets during the day, but we have reserved some door sale for the night. Get your tickets in advance, come early and avoid queuing.
