The Innovation Dam Spring Break 2018 weekender is just 1 week away now! To help your weekend in Amsterdam run smoothly we have compiled this guide to walk you through the entry process, where to go for your daytime events, and what to do if you’ve opted for the VIP upgrade on Saturday night.
We are using 2 different clubs across the weekend. The Melkweg on Friday (11pm-6am), and the Westerunie on Saturday (10pm-5am). The addresses & Google map links can be found below. There are no data roaming fees in Europe with the majority of mobile phone operators* now so you can use your Google maps on your mobile devices to help you get around, you can search direction either by foot or by public transport using the Google Maps app.
Melkweg is the location of our information point that will be open on the Friday & Saturday for you to come & exchange your e-tickets for entry wristbands. Enter the front doors and you’ll see us set up on the left hand side.
Your e-tickets will have been emailed to you at the time of purchase. If for any reason you have not received them please follow the instructions on our e-ticket help page.
We will need to scan your ticket & issue you a wristband to wear for the duration of the weekend in Amsterdam. Our info point at Melkweg will be open from 1pm – 5pm Friday & Saturday for you to come and collect your club entry wristbands. We’d advise coming to do that during the day as it will speed up the queue times when we open the club at night. Don’t arrive in time to get the info point? Don’t worry, we will be able to scan your tickets when the venue opens at night. Please have your e-tickets unfolded, or up on your mobile device ready for scanning when you get to us, we will also need to see ID for the person who purchased the tickets.
For those of you that purchased the 2 night Early Bird tickets, you can collect your FREE lanyard programme from the merchandise stall, they will have your name on a list so simply show them your ID & order number.
Note: Your e-ticket can only been scanned once, once we’ve issued you a wristband / entry voucher that then replaces any previous tickets you have been emailed. Should you lose your wristband or entry ticket we cannot replace them so look after them!
Those of you have have purchased the VIP upgrade for Saturday night will be able to collect your VIP wristband from our info point during the day on Friday & Saturday 1pm-5pm, or during the night from the merchandise stall on Friday night, this will mean you can skip the main queue on Saturday night. Join the VIP queue on arrival at Westerunie.
If you do not arrive until Saturday evening, come along to Westerunie with your entry & VIP e-tickets, join the VIP queue and we will scan & issue your bands there.
You will be issued with your FREE programme lanyard at the same time you are issued your VIP wristband.
Your e-tickets will need to be exchanged for a boat entry voucher from our info point at Melkweg during the opening times on Friday daytime, from the merchandise stall on Friday night, or Saturday afternoon from the info point until 14:30pm. We will have staff issuing any final entry vouchers at the pier for any late arrivers from 15:00pm (Make sure you have your e-ticket & ID with you). Tickets are still available if you wish to get onboard.
The boat departs from Pier 14 located behind Central Station (Click here for Google Maps location), boarding starts at 15:15pm and the boat will set sail at 15:30pm sharp… Do not be late, the boat will not wait for you!
On the Friday at Melkweg club the venue accepts cash & cards at the bar.
On Saturday the Westerunie bar accepts card but not cash. You can use cash to buy tokens to use at the bar, but it will work out cheaper to use your card directly at the bar.
Both venues have cloakrooms or lockers where you can leave your jacket. The cloakroom at Melkweg is located directly in front of you as you enter the venue. At Westerunie the cloakroom is located through room 2.
We will have exclusive Innovation t-shirts, hoodies, programme lanyards & more available from our merchandise stalls located in the venues each night. If you want to get your hands on one of our limited edition Innovation Dam Spring Break 2018 Tour T-Shirts then we’d advise getting yours earlier in the weekend as they do sell out each year & you don’t want to be left disappointed when they all gone come Sunday night.
