Line-up announced

This summer, Dekmantel Festival returns for the 8th year running. The Dutch event enters a new decade by retaining its formula – five days of performance in and outside of Amsterdam, occurring day and night, drawn from all corners of the musical spectrum – while pushing the programme out to new heights. It takes place from 29th July to 2nd August.
Close to 150 artists will be a part of Dekmantel Festival 2020, spread across Wednesday’s tentpole Opening Concerts; Thursday’s extensive pre-programme of talks, film screenings, radio shows, club events, split across venues either side of Amsterdam’s IJ river; and the Friday to Sunday daytime festival, encompassing eight stages in the leafy, spacious and now-infamous Amsterdamse Bos. On display at Dekmantel Festival will be a broad sound-world, free from conventions and limits. Unique combinations of musicians will grow. Genre-defining veterans flank singular young DJ talents. Major stars can, and will, appear in any place, at any time of day. The focus on quality is key.
