After an insane (and sold out) inaugural event last year, Pleinvrees returns to the Amsterdam sporting green space Riekerhaven on Saturday, September 5th, for a festival experience containing much more than just music. Expect familiar names, but also many new heroes, and also featuring an absurdist Andhim-stage, the pub, and a new cabinet of curiosities.

To set the tone for Pleinvrees Heroes, here’s Daniel Bortz’ mix, with a rather unusual and harder sound than you might expect from him, but it will get you in weekend mode for sure.

Berlin-resident Bortz, born in Augsburn, has been brought up on a range of musical genres by his parents. At the age of fourteen he became interested in DJing and hasn’t left the decks ever since. His national and international scope and versatility in sound and a talent to make himself useful in various club or festival moods has brought him in high demand to this day. His catalog of releases is impressive after his debut EP back in 2007. Since then he has released on Innervisions, Pastamusik, Circle Music, Suol and others.
