Best Kept Secret is a diverse Dutch music festival, each summer curating an enviable lineup of alternative, indie and a touch of dance that it showcases across its beautiful lakeside woodland.

Held in Hilvarenbeek, just north-west of Eindhoven, Best Kept Secret Festival has become one of Europe’s coolest music festivals, holding musical creativity and innovation at its heart.

Best Kept Secret’s 8th edition promises to return better than ever with another incredible lineup, all played out within its wonderland retreat filled with green fields and a shallow lake.
