Liberation Day

Liberation Day is a national holiday in The Netherlands celebrated each year on the 5th of May. We celebrate the liberation of The Netherlands from WWII in 1945 as well as the liberation of, then named, Nederlands-Indie. On the 5th of May, The Netherlands will also reflect on the value of freedom, democracy and human rights. The government chose this date because on that day the Germans capitulated.

History
The German army surrendered on this day in 1945, bringing the Second World War to an end for The Netherlands. Since then, The Netherlands has strived to be the capital of freedom, independence and tolerance. To celebrate its continual liberation and societal freedoms, various activities and events are planned throughout the city.

Events
The Liberation Festivals are taking place across the country and have extensive musical programs and big-name acts relating to the theme freedom. At various spots in the city you will find Dutch band and international musicians and DJs.

This year Liberation Day is celebrated differently due to the COVID-19 measures. Liberation Day is celebrated on Bevrijdingsfestivals.nl. The 14 Liberation Festivals offer a joint online programme of more than 200 performances and activities on Liberation Day.

The Liberation Concert takes place in Carré Theatre and is broadcast live on NPO1.
