Wake me up when I'm famous. Such a simple design of words, turned into a real internet sensation. Read more about how this piece was developed and where you can find it.
De Pijp in Amsterdam has everything you need when looking for the perfect Amsterdam picture. The cute streets, small little boutique shops with colored store fronts, matcha and pancake bars and loads of greenery. In 2013 a local artist decided to spruce up a wall (Frans Halsstraat 64) next to his house with a slogan.
It turned out to be quite a sensation. A lot of girls are wandering around this area with their telephones in hand looking for the wall and bench. Influencers are promoting their products in front of the Wake Me Up When I’m Famous sign, tv-items are filmed in front of it and sometimes you’re able to see locals eat their lunch on the bench.
You can find the Wake Me Up When I’m Famous bench at this location:
Address: Frans Halsstraat 64, Amsterdam
