The presale had started Saturday morning. It is not yet known which artists will perform next year. Hofman said that he usually starts devising and compiling the program in March. He is therefore a little surprised that the tickets are already gone. “They have a lot of faith in us, apparently,” he said.

    The Friends of Amstel Live has been around for 25 years and is therefore giving a series of twenty shows in Rotterdam Ahoy this year. Guus Meeuwis, DI-RECT, Nick & Simon, Willeke Alberti and Suzan & Freek, among others, will perform this time.
