The first names of fifth edition of DGTL – the notorious festival that opens our festival seasons in March – have been announced. As usual during the Easter holiday April 15th and 16th DGTL returns to NDSM Docklands, Amsterdam’s historic colossal shipping wharf  to collecting the headliner’s of all the following festivals.

It seems this year the festival curation is aiming to balance its getting to be built reputation of a heavier techier sounding artists, inviting Motor City Drum Ensemble – the renowned as a selector of grooves (even though still very versatile), the versatile magician DJ Koze or Gerd Janson who will play back-to-back with Move D. However, they will be joined by the rather regular guests Adriatique, Dixon and the highly awaited performances by the amazing Max Cooper and Moscoman. Definitely one to keep an eye on Kobosil (live), HOWLING (live) and Midland, who had a skyrocketing past year. On top of that the Dutch techno icon Speedy J.
