It has been a while since our last concert together (and our last post…), but Monique and I are back on track!
Tuesday night we went to Angus & Julia Stone at Live At Amsterdamse Bos. Several outdoor concerts are given here in the woods and it’s an absolute unique and magical way to spend a summer evening.
It took us about 30 minutes to get there by bike, but the trip is totally worth it. Once you get to the woods, it feels like you’ve entered a whole different world and left the busy centre of Amsterdam behind. Birds tjirping, fresh air and day falling into night.
When you walk up the path towards the theatre you come across glistening lights and bump into people chatting away, waiting in line to get a beer and a bite to eat at one of the vintage-style vendors.
Unfortunately for Angus & Julia, Schiphol Airport had a bit of a different flight route, which meant the planes kept on flying over us for the first 20 minutes. But after that, we could fully enjoy the concert, singing along to Down the Way & Big Jet Plane.
It was very peaceful and romantic, hence the many couples around us:
Once night fell, it truly became magical..
Live At Amsterdamse Bos has a couple more concerts coming up:
Milow, Bo Saris, Novastar and Olafur Arnalds. And guess what: there are still tickets left!
So get your butt to one of the concerts and we’ll see you in the woods!
Live At Amsterdamse Bos | Bostheater | till 18th of August
