Come Out & Play

Friday 28th and Saturday 29th of September, the Come Out & Play Festival will turn Amsterdam into a playground.

Registration will start on September 13th.

Stay informed? mailinglist

Hundreds of players will gather to play different games across the city. The festival gives players and the public the chance to take part in a variety of different urban games. These new-style games turn the city into a playground. We’ll play at all sorts of locations around Amsterdam during PICNIC'07. PacManhattan and Zombie Tag were huge hits in New York last year (see www.comeoutandplay.org/blog/games). The games we’ll play in Amsterdam will be just as large-scale and fun.

Come rediscover the city around you through play. Why a urban games festival, you ask? Fair question. Well, we like innovative use of public space. We like games which make people interact in new ways. We like games that alter your perception of your surroundings. But most importantly, urban games are a great way to have city-size fun.

Come Out & Play will take place September 28-29. Games will occur throughout the day in locations around the Westergasfabriek, Westerpark and the city centre. The Headquarters are at the Westergasfabriek.
