Dekmantel Festival kicks off with a series of special live concerts on Thursday August 4. Spread across four stunning Amsterdam locations, eight different performances, in- depth lectures, radio shows, dj-sets, music films, a club night and an exquisite food line-up will set the pace for the three-day spectacle to follow.
Set sail to Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ and Bimhuis for airtime at Red Light Radio, or dock to catch afro-beat legend Tony Allen play the lush Tolhuistuin gardens.
The opening night offers a diverse and well-curated program; just make sure to keep afloat.
