Denimheads rejoice! Denim Days, the festival that celebrates all things denim, returns this year to Amsterdam and New York. Not only that, but they’ve added a new location for even more denim celebration: Nashville.
Part trade show, part vintage sale, and part lecture series; the Denim Days festivals unite both industry heavyweights and regular consumers over their love of the world’s greatest fabric. This year’s festivities will come in three waves: New York from September 22-23, Amsterdam from October 22-28, and Nashville November 10 and 11. A paltry $10 plus fees (€10 in Amsterdam) will buy you entrance to each of the festivals and the vintage markets, delicious food, and live music therein.
The festival was born in Amsterdam, therefore the celebration there lasts the longest, coinciding with the Blueprint Amsterdam and Kingpins Amsterdam shows and lasts a whole damn week. The New York show is comparatively brief, but festival diehards will be able to draw out the experience by visiting a series of pop-ups during Fashion Week (Sept. 6-14) that tease the main event at the Metropolitan Pavilion later in the month.
Although Nashville is a brand-new location for Denim Days, you can expect all your favorite things from the other shows to feature heavily: good music, good people, and best of all, good denim.
