Mysteryland turns thirty this weekend and celebrates the festivities with over three hundred artists. The lineup is stacked with big names, and there’s something in there for every music lover, ranging from Anaï B to Bastienne, Jaguar, Hot Since 82, Korsakoff, Mirella Kroes, to Sedef Adasï, and way beyond. Three days of various electronic music styles and crazy decorations? Only Mysteryland could do it this big. ‘Yesterday is history. Today is a gift. Tomorrow is a Mystery.’
Georgie’s Wundergarten is a small paradise away from reality in Amsterdam’s magic world of Ruigoord. No one knows who Georgie is or who he will invite to his intimate and yet popular fairytale-like rave this year, but one thing that’s for sure is that this festival day is about connecting offline with each other. No phones, no cameras, just good music and new friends. Within the isolation lies the beauty, and with acts like KI/KI, Gabriel Ananda, Satori, and Zombies in Miami on previous lineups, you know this one’s for the connoisseurs.
Trancey queen KI/KI is now so much of a household name she no longer plays the smaller, underground festivals like Georgie’s, but takes her underground club bangers to the larger mainstage of Onder De Radar Festival. She plays after Peggy Gou, who’s all over the internet with her new summer anthem, and before 999999999, who closes the festival. The five other stages see names like Tsepo, Tjade, horsegiirL, and Sally C blast off this Saturday.
Breda is still on a roll this summer: Duikboot Zomer Festival invites DJs like Bella, Cassie Raptor, Tom Trago, William Djoko, and many others. Feet in the sand, colorful stages surrounding you: Duikboot is a fun festival day outdoors. Join this day of house, sugary hits, and thumping techno in the south of The Netherlands.
We sure love a daytime party. This colorful city festival in the heart of Amsterdam serves as the closing of the festival season in The Netherlands’ capital and challenges visitors to let it all out once more. Dress crazy, and enjoy the music of Sandrien, Joost van Bellen, Shirley Macholina, and many more.
SlapFunk returns to its favorite home base in Amsterdam, Lofi. The summer gatherings come to a grand finale with part three, where they invite Doudou MD, Georgia, Ryan Elliot, and a lot more names to blaze the courtyard and the colorfloor. This party lasts for fourteen hours, so make sure to get some rest between dancing, even though SlapFunk’s selectors keep you glued to the floor.
We travel way down south for this one: Deviate takes place in a monumental church building in Kerkrade, Limburg. The only thing holy at this event is techno, as names like Héctor Oaks, I Hate Models, Cynthia Spiering, and Patrick Mason turn this church into a techno temple for one day. Buckle up, this is going to be a big one.
The people behind FURTHER know how to create a lineup. DJ Bone stars this club night as the initiator and invites friends like HAAi, who will undoubtedly bring her high-energy set to Radion on Saturday. Lady Starlight treats dancers to a live set, and Steve Rachmad and all of the FURTHER residents take it one step… exactly.
