Dutch promoters roll out first edition of two day event in Amsterdamse Bos

The team responsible for some of Amsterdam's coolest parties has announced a two day festival in the heart of Amsterdamse Bos (Amsterdam Forest) taking place 23rd – 24th August, entitled Dekmantel Festival.

A prominent feature of Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), Valhalla and a staple of the scene all year round, the bods behind Dekmantel have roped in a host of house and techno talent, including the likes of Joy Orbison, Dixon, Optimo, John Talabot, Laurent Garnier, Mathew Jonson (live) and Marcel Dettmann, for their first ever weekender.

Capped to 5000 each day, the first batch of 1000 tickets go on sale Friday 29th March at 12pm on the Dekmantel website, so don't Dek about – head to the check out. Let's go Dek-mental!
