April 1 -5, 2020

Come celebrate our 10 Year anniversary with us in Amsterdam, Netherlands!

10 Years! Can you believe it?! Start Making Sense has been a band for 10 Years. And to celebrate we're taking the music of Talking Heads and as many of you as we can, to Amsterdam! Our trip to Cuba last year inspired us to make an overseas journey with our fans and friends a regular part of our calendar. Cuba was absolutely a Once in a Lifetime experience, so this time we have decided to try a different continent!

During this 5 day/4 night trip, we will be staying in a four-star hotel conveniently located in the heart of Amsterdam, offering unique excursions with the band members(Ex. Biking along the canals/Museums/Red Light District/Cafe’s! - Details and sign up TBA), One Group Excursion, Two Start Making Sense concerts - one at Q factory & one TBA, all the while giving you plenty of time do your own thing. Amsterdam is a city of manageable size, language barriers are minimal and the cultural attractions are legendary.

Because this trip will be managed by Elevate IME, we are able to offer almost 20 departure cities/airports <see below> from the USA !! On top of that, Elevate will help facilitate a longer stay or a different return trip date if you feel like you want to stay longer! This is going to be an amazing adventure and we hope you can make it. Space is limited, and interest is high so please consider booking early. Learn more/sign up/purchase tickets here. We can’t wait to explore this amazing city with you! More info below!
