About a week ago DGTL kicked off the festival season and it was a blast. Enough time to retrospect on the two day event. Here’s day two of the festival report.

Dekmantel Festival 2014 – Report

After a long build-up and red hot anticipation, both national as international, last weekend it was finally time for Dekmantel Festival 2014. What we saw and heard over the two days we were there, Friday & Sunday, was pretty much as good as it gets in the Netherlands, and it definitely showed that the organization has gone through lengths to not only correct the mistakes of last year, but to also improve on a lot of fronts. The result was a three-day musical paradise with international allure. In the months prior to the festival it became clear that Dekmantel wasn’t ... Read more
