The Streets have announced that they’ll head to Amsterdam in 2021 for a takeover of the city.
Billed as the ‘Take Me As I Amsterdam’ takeover, the event will see Mike Skinner headlining a concert in the city, alongside a whole host of side activities. Fans can expect coffee shop takeovers, a boat party, hotel takeovers and a series of after-parties.
Describing the event, which takes place from April 30-May 1, 2021, The Streets said: “Watch us as we go. It’s time to gear up for three nights of coffee shop takeovers, boat parties, world-famous DJs and of course, a full Streets concert. Take me as I Amsterdam.”

The Amsterdam extravaganza is The Streets’ latest show to be announced for 2021, following the announcement that they’ll play their biggest hometown show to date at Birmingham’s MADE festival next year. Due to take place at Sandwell Valley Country Park on July 31, the performance will serve as The Streets’ biggest hometown show to date. They were due to headline the festival in 2020, but it was cancelled due to the coronavirus crisis. Visit the event’s official website for further details.
Last week, The Streets also played an ambitious live-streamed show at London’s EartH. In a five-star review of the event, the NME said, “The exhausting hour and 10 minutes ends with a champagne finish, Skinner spraying the non-existent crowd with Moet alongside a foam machine and confetti cannons, telling the cameras which have been following him around the venue all night: ‘I am your wave god, wave god number one.’ Does it make sense? Not really. Is it the finest, funnest live-streamed gig we’ve seen so far? Certainly.”
On July 10, The Streets released their new mixtape, None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive, which is available on all streaming services as well as standard and gold vinyl LP and cassette via Island Records.
The new collection features the singles “Call My Phone Thinking I’m Doing Nothing Better (ft. Tame Impala)”, “I Wish You Loved You As Much As You Love Him (ft. Donae’O & Greentea Peng)” and “Falling Down (ft. Hak Baker)”.
