In 2013 ALDA Events and ID&T organized the first edition of AMF together, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Dutch Dance. The first edition took place in RAI Amsterdam and had 25,000 visitors.

Due to the big interest the second edition of the event, in 2014, moved from RAI Amsterdam to the Amsterdam Arena (since 2017 called AFAS Live).  The event grows to 35,000 visitors.

In 2015 the event expands to a two-day event, of which the first evening was dominated by the DJ Mag Top 100 award show and the second evening - which was also being held in the ArenA - was filled with a various line up. In addition, AMF starts their cooperation with Dance4Life, an NGO that works together with youngsters to build a world without AIDS. For every ticket sold, AMF donates 50 cents to the charity 

In 2016 organizers ALDA Events and ID&T decided to expand the event even further to eight events on five evenings, in three different venues: Amsterdam ArenA, Heineken Music Hall and Ziggo Dome. With an official opening and closing ceremony, two shows in the Amsterdam ArenA and several hostings, the fourth edition of AMF was the biggest festival during the Amsterdam Dance Event. According to market research office GfK Netherlands, AMF generated almost 28 million euros for the economy of Amsterdam.

In 2017 the first lustrum edition of AMF will be celebrated.
