Amsterdam Vs London Vs Berlin Night-Life & Night Mayors
“I don’t want young and creative Londoners abandoning our city to head to Amsterdam, to Berlin, to Prague where clubs are supported and allowed to flourish.
I want them to be able to celebrate what they love in the city that they love, rather than punish them or force their activities underground or abroad.” (DazedDigital )
London’s new Mayor Sadiq Khan promises to learn from Amsterdam’s Night Mayor Mirik Milan
“When we see the night time economy, we see it as a place where a lot of development is happening for the creative industry. Think of all the photographers, filmmakers. Of course, DJs, and live musicians.
They have a platform in which they can develop their talent. So that’s the value that I see in nightlife.” (PBS.org)
Mirik points out to PBS that ‘what people really often forget, is when there’s lot of people dancing, there’s a lot people working.’
