DGTL AMS 2018: 10 Can’t Miss Performances

Published On 27/03/2018 | Editorial

This weekend, DGTL returns to its home base of Amsterdam with its annual Easter spanning festival.

This, its sixth Amsterdam based edition after expansions to locations like Barcelona, Sao Paulo, and Tel Aviv, continues the festival’s tradition of combining art, performance, and environmental sustainability, all while featuring one of the more balanced lineups around. Combining international and local talent, a full spectrum of sounds, and a socially conscious approach to representation and environment, there’s much to look forward to.

This year’s lineup holds no shortage of headline names, featuring the likes of Hot Since 82, Jackmaster, Tale of Us, Mano le Tough, Eats Everything, Jeff Mills and more. But, we thought to dig a little deeper and look at 10 of the performances that immediately grabbed us. From the godfather of Techno, Laurent Garnier, to the exciting Afro-tinged sounds of Philou Louzolo (check out his amazing DGTL Podcast for a taste); the unmissable live performance of Telefon Tel Aviv to the anything goes approach of Call Super; DHA favorite Man Power to a slew of the most talented female (identifying) women in the business.

DGTL AMS 2018 will be going on this weekend, across Friday, 30 March – Sunday, 1 April at NDSM. Here, we take a look at the 10 artists performing that have our most attention (in absolutely no particular order). Who are you most looking forward to seeing this year?
