Lief Festival is an electronic music festival in Utrecht, Netherlands. Anchored in but not limited to techno, the festival annually presents a lineup of legends and up-and-comers. Having its inaugural edition in 2006, Lief Festival takes place the first Saturday of September and acts as an unofficial summer farewell party.

With four stages and more areas to discover, the festival is set in the Recreatieplas Strijkviertel, which features grassy open spaces, forests, and even a sandy beach. The festival will feature a stage on the beach area, a main stage on a grassy bank, a house of guilty pleasures in the woods, a tented stage and a stage that reaches into the water.

Lief Festival 2020 was postponed to 2021, due to the coronavirus outbreak. Tickets info to be announced soon.
