“I think Dutch people are very sober, I don’t know if it’s the right word. Like, you have the most famous person walk by some Dutch people, and they’re like, ‘Oh, hello.’ And they maybe take a photo, but most of the time, they’ll respect you and leave you alone. And if you go to some other countries they will literally mob you, go crazy.” – Martin Garrix
