Can I use Uber or Bolt in Amsterdam to visit the festival?
Yes, both of these providers are also available in the Netherlands. They have a dedicated pick up point near the festival exit / entrance.
To make this experience even better for you and the drivers, here are some overall tips that might be applicable for you:
- On your way to Dekmantel Festival: navigate towards "Nieuwe Meerlaan 1, Amstelveen". Once in the vicinity of the festival, follow the relevant signing for drop-off.
- On your way from Dekmantel Festival: follow the signing towards "besteld vervoer" ('ordered transport') from the festival entrance towards the dedicated pick-up point. After you've requested, your app will show you where to go to find your driver at the Uber/Bolt pick up and drop off spot (±5 minutes walking from the entrance).
- Be mindful to only request when you are completely ready. Your driver will cancel if you let them wait for too long.
- Do you want to contact your driver after you've requested to find each other even faster? Call or chat with your driver.
- Both apps give an estimated trip fare before you request. Fares can be temporarily higher due to high demand. You could try to wait a little and request again when the dynamic pricing is no longer active.
