Amsterdam based party organisers Dekmantel have released the first 60 names of the line-up of the annual Dekmantel Festival that will take place in three locations this year. Autechre, Manuel Göttsching, Four Tet, Model 500, Marcel Dettmann, Carl Craig, Ricardo Villalobos and Tale of Us are all featured on the impressive list of confirmed performers.
Like earlier editions the Amsterdamse Bos park will play host to the main festival, with additional performances at Muziekgebouw aan ’t Ij and Melkweg. The organisers explicitly state they are keen on preserving the intimate and small-scale vibe the festival is known for, despite the big names on the line-up and the inevitable growth of the festival. “By adding two new festival locations to the program, we can offer a wider range of some of the biggest leftfield names in electronic music, as well as a larger draft of adventurous contemporary frontrunners and local heroes who are equally capable of providing the best festival experience possible, both outdoor and indoor. We still believe in building an event by investing in quality instead of quantity. We are not aiming for bigger crowds, we are only scattering the music.”
