Across the water in the city where our sister site is located, there happens to be one of Holland’s finest festivals taking place – namely DGTL. The guys who also run a very impressive series of parties during ADE are already deep into their planning for next year’s event, and have made an exciting announcement regarding some of the huge names who’ll be appearing at DGTL 2015.
The Amsterdam festival is not only highly respected for its strong line-ups but also dedicates its energy to an art and sustainability program. During the 2015 Easter Holiday over 80 artists from around the world will be in town to showcase the best of forward-thinking, dance floor-orientated electronic music. Headliners include Hot Creations bossman Jamie Jones, the infallible Maceo Plex, RA’s DJ of the year 2013 Dixon and the mighty Ten Walls together with underground wizards like Michael Mayer, Move D and John Talabot.
The musical programming alone warrants an instant purchase of a ticket, and then we have the extensive art and awareness program, which makes DGTL Festival 2015 the perfect start of the festival season in our books and we’re sure you’ll be equally enticed by the delights on offer. Expect innovative stage designs, art installations from around the world and sustainable innovation through their DGTL Revolution project, which was awarded a two out of four star rating by ‘A Greener Festival’ last month.
DGTL returns on the 4th and 5th of April 2015, when the NDSM docklands area, in the north of Amsterdam, will be transformed into one of the industry’s leading underground festivals, with a progressive approach in every aspect of the event. Seeking to connect the fields of tech innovation and warehouse-based nostalgia, DGTL ART will showcase a variety of innovative lighting, futuristic sculptures and crazy interactive performance acts to enhance the ambiance.
Besides a line-up including the best DJ’s of modern underground music and a mind-boggling DGTL ART program, plus their very own DGTL Revolution, which is a vital part of the festival. The theme of this year’s Revolution is ‘Power’. The festival will run on renewable energy such as wind and solar power, and will showcase the newest sustainable energy solutions – how many festivals do you know which dedicate so much of their own energy into such environmentally-sound ideas? Not many is the answer! The theme of the Art program, Kinetic Art, will result in over 20 smaller and bigger acts and art installations from DGTL’s Kinetic Art Collective.
If you want to sleep over to experience the complete weekend DGTL offers up limited cottages for only 33Euros per person, per night, which are just a five-minute walk away from the festival grounds.
It’s a no-brainer in our opinion!
