Dekmantel Festival is a cutting edge electronic music festival in Amsterdam, curating a lineup of the most creative and influential acts in house, techno and beyond.

Encouraging its acts to take risks instead of playing the hits, Dekmantel Festival has built a reputation for championing artistry, leading it to become one of the most respected festivals in Europe.

Taking place in the massive Amsterdamse Bos, the festival is a classic outdoor affair, spreading its unparalleled lineup across six stages. Three times the size of Central Park in New York, Amsterdamse Bos is a large park located in the south-east of the city. It has hosted numerous gatherings, concerts and political manifestations.

Dekmantel Festival 2020 was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. Tickets remain valid for the 2021 edition. You can read the festival’s statement here
