Finished eating and singing? Then you end your day at Inntel Hotels Rotterdam Centre or Mainport by Inntel Hotels. Continue your culinary adventure at one of the hotels with a fresh breakfast buffet, a hearty lunch or an extensive dinner!


Festival Beach
Festival Strand is a festival with a hint of summer. Strand takes place at a beautiful location on the beach of the Haarrijnse Plas in Utrecht. Live music by, among others, BLØF, Clouseau, DJ La Fuente, Paul Elstak and The Dirty Daddies, guarantees a swinging party. For a tropical holiday feeling, walk around the Ibiza market and the food boulevard. The event takes place on Friday 26 August and Saturday 27 August. Lovers of 90’s dance music best go on Friday, pop and rock lovers on Saturday.

After such a day at Strand, a nice shower or warm bath is the perfect way to relax. You can do this at Inntel Hotels Utrecht Centre. The Spa and Wellness Rooms have the best facilities to fully relax, like a Whirlpool, Rain Shower or even a private sauna.


The largest and oldest electronic music festival in The Netherlands, where different dance styles come together… of course we’re talking about Mysteryland. From the 26th to 28th of August, this huge event takes place in the Haarlemmermeerse Bos (in Hoofddorp). With 22 stages playing house, techno, trance, EDM, Hardstyle and Hardcore as well as Latin, pop, R&B, hip hop and Afrobeats, there is music for everyone. Dance the night away and enjoy the different music genres.

Mysteryland is so big that it even has its own campsite. But let’s be honest, what sounds better after a day of showing off your coolest dance moves: sleeping on a mat in a tent, or completely relax in your own whirlpool and/or private sauna? Book an overnight stay at Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Centre or Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Landmark and be spoilt. From Hoofddorp station, it is easy to reach the hotels by public transport.

Tino Martin & Friends

Your feet in the warm sand, the salty wind through your hair and the sun on your head. Isn’t it wonderful? On 1 September, artist Tino Martin from The Hague will return to his birthplace to perform together with friends Rolf Sanchez, Emma Heesters, Kriss Kross Amsterdam and Mart Hoogkamer. On the beach; one of the best places for a festival, right? Watching the sun sink into the sea while enjoying some live summer songs…. What more could you want on a sensual summer evening?

Het Grootste Zomerfeest van Nederland

Does Dutch music on the beach sound appealing to you? Then you don’t want to miss the next party! On the beach of Scheveningen, the first edition of Het Grootste Zomerfeest van Nederland (the biggest summerparty of the Netherlands) will take place on Saturday 3 September. The party is a collaboration between Live on the Beach and Qmusic. With performances by Guus Meeuwis, VanVelzen, Antoon, Kraantje Pappie, Meau, Flemming, Diggy Dex and Snelle, this sultry beach party will definitely be a succes. Can you see yourself with a Desperados in your hand and sunglasses on your nose?

Partying on a Saturday evening and jumping straight into bed afterwards, it doesn’t get any better than that right? Because Inntel Hotels Den Haag Marina Beach is located at about 500 metres from the beach party, this is the ideal base after a day of swinging. Our special package includes two regular tickets for Het Grootste Zomerfeest in the Netherlands and an overnight stay at Inntel Hotels The Hague Marina Beach with benefits. Tip: combine this party with Tino Martin & Friends and have a great long weekend including an overnight stay at Inntel Hotels The Hague Marina Beach.
