Electro festival in Amsterdam
The lush forest and grassy meadows of Amsterdamse Bos makes for a sweet setting to host an electro festival. Over the years Dekmantel as a music brand has come to be associated with both the connoisseurs and iconoclasts of electro and EDM scene, as a label, party-thrower and more recently festival host.
Last years highlights
The line-up includes Jon Hopkins, Floating Points, Jeff Mills & Tony Allen, Jameszoo, Joy Orbison, Optimo, Andy Stott and Factory Floor. And you can ease your way into the festival with minimal music icon Steve Reich on the Wednesday night.
Amsterdam city limits
With the Amsterdamse Bos still serving as the festival's bucolic base, Dekmantel has added several Amsterdam locations, too. Thursday's programme takes place at several spectacular venues on the waterfront: the contemporary music venue Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Bimhuis, the EYE Filmmuseum and the Tolhuistuin.
In tents festival
Of course, if you prefer to stay put for the duration of the festival, there is the option of purchasing a camping ticket. The ticket is independent of your festival ticket with camping not organised or operated by Dekmantel. Head to the Dekmantel website for tickets and more information.
