Summer is almost over .
Concerts, outdoor events and festivals are the main summer activities that grow from year to year, they are born and are increasingly supported by the scene and people across Europe. Combining business with pleasure. Traveling to new horizons joined in the fun. This time the journey takes us straight into the heart of the Netherlands: Amsterdam
A magnificent city with the reputation of sin, but at the same time enjoying an enviable balance that with the summer even becomes magical and picturesque: the green plants on the canals, the red bricks of the most lively and some offsite journeys, our adventure begin.
We move. Direction: Amsterdam Bos. A park located between Amsterdam and Amstelveen from enormous size where, as every year, take place Dekmantel Festival.
A festival which precisely enjoys a breathtaking location and is desired destination for many connoisseurs of the genre.
The festival is divided into 5 stages including one main, one indoor, one surrounded by pine forest, one fallen among the weeping willows and the other still in the midst of recycled materials which will set the exclusive boiler room.
A festival that makes quality its main power tool.
A mix of landscape, participants and guests that carefully choose for live gigs live and DJ sets. An evocative mix combining people from all parts of the world pattern with a well-defined as that passion for music, and they share a smile.
The quality precisely. Despite Dekmantel grow from year to year trying to maintain limited numbers to not reach the excesses that would be harmful to the niche that you want to keep.
Among the guests that we enjoyed we can mention the most famous: Villalobos, Jeff Mills, Nina Kraviz, but also pillars of jazz funk and disco music as Roy Ayers with his band Roy Ayers Ubiquity or DJ Harvey; while among the emerging electronic scene MCDE, Jeremy Underground, Interstellar Funk and many more.
For those who want to live to 360 degrees this fantastic experience there is also the opportunity to stay in contact with nature inside the park area camping organized the festival.
Dekmantel Festival has been repeatedly judged the best European festival by Resident Advisor, known digital platform in the world clubbing and electronic music, there is a reason!
Enjoy the photos!
