Dekmantel Festival is here to stay. That’s right, we are not going anywhere. We strongly believe that we can add unforgettable summer reminiscence to your collective memories each and every year. How? By building our beloved three-day festival little by little, step by step. After all, our adagium hasn’t changed one bit. ‘Small festival, big names’ means we will always favour quality over quantity. We will be serving up close to 100 artists this time and only the very best of what electronic music has to offer nowadays. It’s the quality you can expect from Dekmantel, we won’t settle for mediocrity. On August 01/02/03 we will return to the lush forests and grassy meadows of the Amsterdamse Bos (Amsterdam Forest). Last year these magical surroundings have proven to be the perfect setting for the intimate festival we had in mind. Expect forward thinking techno, contemporary house, obscure disco and edgy bass music. Last but not least: you don’t have to go home during the weekend as we invite you to our festival bedrooms for the very first time. See you in August!
