This is how Milkshake left Westerpark. This festival claims to love sustainability. It sealed off most the park for locals for 10 days during a heatwave and now there is nothing left to enjoy at all. The park is also full of balloons and trash, and this is where neighborhood kids are supposed to play outdoors during their summer holidays.
I Amsterdam, the marketing organization of the city proudly announced Amsterdam is one of the greenest capital cities in Europe. But the locals pained by garbage dumps, parks being shut down for weeks in a row for festivals, noise pollution and witnessing old trees being chopped down in bulk to make room for more parking lots, buildings and roads beg to differ.
