This summer, Dekmantel Festival returns for the 8th year running. The Dutch event enters a new decade by continuing to deliver five days of performance in and outside of Amsterdam – occurring day and night, drawn from all corners of the musical spectrum – while also pushing its programming out to further reaches and new heights. This year’s edition takes place from 29th July to 2nd August.
Close to 150 artists will be a part of Dekmantel Festival 2020, spread across Wednesday’s tentpole Opening Concerts; Thursday’s extensive pre-programme of talks, film screenings, radio shows, club events, split across venues either side of Amsterdam’s IJ river; and the Friday to Sunday daytime festival, encompassing eight stages in the leafy, spacious and now-infamous Amsterdamse Bos.
On display at Dekmantel Festival will be a broad sound-world, free from conventions and limits. Unique combinations of musicians will grow. Genre-defining veterans flank singular young DJ talents. Major stars can, and will, appear in any place, at any time of day. The focus on quality is key.
The Dutch institution has booked an array of returning and emerging talents along with some vaunted legacy acts. Theo Parrish will play a ten-hour DJ set, while the likes of Philip Glass, SVBKVLT affiliate 33EMYBW, Floating Points, Robert Hood, object blue, Karenn, Giant Swan, Air Max ’97, dBridge and Objekt & Ezra Miller perform live. Laurel Halo is also set to play live as DJ.
Whether you’re searching for EBM or jazz fusion, you’ll find only the best on offer. Plus, of course, other music lovers as eager and receptive as you are to share the experience with – whichever experience it is that you decide upon. Welcome back to Denkmantel.
