Merely attending a music festival is no longer cool enough: you now must arrive like a Bond villain. With Holland’s major electronic music festival, Mysteryland, approaching this weekend, Uber has reintroduced its helicopter service as a transportation option for those commuting from Amsterdam or The Hague to the festival grounds in Haarlemmermeer.

After you request your all-caps UberCHOPPER supplied by Heli 2 City for a chance to reserve your flight, you’ll be prompted to choose between two options: “Mysteryland,” if you’re going to the music festival, or “city tour” if you’re not attending the music festival but still want a limited-time-only tour of the city from above.
