Due to a fair amount of confusion on my part, I booked my flight to Netherlands the day before the rest of my band. It would cost 300 dollars to change my flight to the next day and 200 to get a hotel room. Would anyone be willing to put me up for the night and drop me off at the airport the next morning around 8:30. I'll pay for anyone's help.

Our show is in Tilburg so, should anyone live in Tilburg and be interested also, let me know, I could take the train there and meet you at the train station.

If no one can help me out, is it illegal to wait 24 hours in the Amsterdam airport?

I don't live in Amsterdam, but I can tell you that the airport is not that far from the city, but don't take a taxi, take the bus instead. I stayed in a hostel and it was very cheap.

As far as I know you can always wait 24 hours in the airport, but I wouldn't do it. Rest in a hostel.

You don't quite understand how poor I am. I will look up prices for hotels around the airport in the next week or so.

Well, the hostel I slept at was 13 euro per night, and the bus from the city to the airport was 1 or 2 euros, I don't remember.

You realize I am there on business right? I mean, yeah, I will be a tourist but I have a gig to play.

Anyway, thanks for your helpful and thoughtful response. I appreciate it dearly and go kill yourself.

I appreciate the sentiment! I should be able to find something reasonable.

I find it quite relevant actually. I find that when there are way to many tourists at a certain location it really takes away from the experience (regardless of the nationality of the tourists). Im going there as the first stop on a cruise around the Baltic sea this summer. Im looking forward to it.

That's the thing -- the OP is going there for business.

I live in Amsterdam, though, I won't be able to get you a place to sleep. You can always go out all night long. I recommend The Cave, it's a metalbar in the citycenter, on the Prinsengracht, near Leidseplein.
Go there, it's open till 4, get a midnight snack and head back to the airport, you'll have a great time there.
There's also a coffeshop next to the cave if you're intrested in that, but I warn you, don't take the dosis of weed you're used to, our weed is much stronger.. Even Snoop Dog passed out on our weed, cause he smoked too much of it.

That, sir, is going to fucking RULE. And shit, your band is from Jersey? Come play Philadelphia some time. I'm fuck tired of all these shitty Crust, Grind & Party "Thrash" bands clogging up our scene. Set up a date with Vulcan and Hessian or something.

If you know them, PM their contact details and I will forward them to my drummer who does the booking. I would love to play Phily. If you were up for the drive, we are playing a few shows in the next two months. One of which, I can't mention yet, but might be to your liking. Check our website in the upcoming weeks. It should be listed there soon.
