The first rays of sunlight are slowly starting to seep through and all of Holland’s cafe terraces are filled to the brim within a second. The Dutch are an opportunistic kind of people when it comes to weather, especially when the weather is actually good. It’s no surprise then that dance music lovers across the country are counting down the days to the first festival they get to visit this season. As the choice has increased yet again this year, it’s getting harder and harder to take a pick.

That’s why we’ve lined up some of the coolest festivals coming up this spring and summer. Whether it’s the divinely selected line-up, a fantastic location or special care for culture and side programming: these are the events making a difference this year.
