THANK YOU! Welcome to the sixth edition of the EB Festival Guide. Even bigger and dare we say better than the ones we published in the years before. The pagecount now stands at a hefty 424 pages. This is the essential guide of the live industry with an overview of more than 900 festivals in the Netherlands and Belgium. Plus most of the larger festivals in the rest of Europe. EB Festival Guide is the most comprehensive festival book on the market today. For those of you who are reading this guide for the first time: welcome! This guide is the only business-to-business publication about festivals in the Benelux. The first issue was first published in 2010. Traditionally, the guide is released in January, during the Eurosonic Noorderslag Conference in Groningen, the Netherlands. In the EB Festival Guide, live entertainment professionals will find all relevant information regarding the submitted festivals. Publishing this guide would not have been possible without the input of all participating festival organisations and advertisers. Therefore, we would like to give a big thank you to those who have participated in making this EB Festival Guide the biggest live guide there is. If by the off chance that your festival was not mentioned in this publication, please contact us and we’ll make sure the details will be included in EB Festival Guide 2016. You can get in touch with us at festivalguide@entertainmentbusiness.nl. This is also the address to send us tips, ideas, questions, comments and even compliments. We are looking forward to your participation next year and wish you all a very successful festival season. Best regards, ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS

edition 3

The Wolfstijd Foundation offers a platform to bigger and smaller metal bands within the Pagan Metal, Black Metal and Power Metal genres. Our main goal is to organise a great metal festival in the Netherlands. Rather than in summer, we chose to set the stage for Wolfstijd in the cosy winter months. Whereas in December, the city of Eindhoven is host to the amazing Eindhoven Metal Meeting, Wolfstijd festival in February offers its visitors a smaller and more intimate event. A full day of great music that all metal lovers will enjoy! FESTIVAL INFORMATION date 7 February location Bibelot, Dordrecht website www.wolfstijd.nl

Adventurous and open-minded, Cross-linx establishes connections between ‘new’ music and artists from the avant-garde pop scene. For anyone who wants to look beyond the hip, popular bands.

Advertorial

De totaaloplossing voor uw evenement. Voor zekerheid. Als opdrachtgever of organisator van een evenement staat één ding op voorhand al vast: er is geen tweede kans. De uitvoer van een evenement moet in één keer perfect zijn. Daarvoor moet je dus op zoek naar kwalitatieve partijen die de grootst mogelijke zekerheid kunnen bieden. Laat dat nu net de pay-off zijn van de Safety Group: voor zekerheid. De groep bestaat uit negen labels op het gebied van veiligheid, verkeer, logistiek en educatie. Die labels hebben zich in de afgelopen jaren zelfstandig meer dan bewezen en komen nu samen onder de kwalitatieve paraplu van de Safety Group. De synergie en onderlinge verbinding geven voor opdrachtgevers een geheel nieuwe lading aan het werkwoord ontzorgen.

D

at de paraplu van de Safety Group voor event­ organisatoren een prettige plek is om ‘onder te schuilen’ heeft alles te maken met het indruk­ wekkende fundament onder de groep. Het bedrijf heeft eigenlijk al bijna 20 jaar toegewerkt naar dit moment. ‘Alle individuele labels zijn pure specialismen. Die hebben we in de afgelopen jaren zo neergezet dat wij een uniforme kwaliteit kunnen garanderen. Nu we op dat punt zijn aan­ gekomen, is de Safety Group een ideale partij voor iedere opdrachtgever om maximale zekerheid en ont­zorging te krijgen op het hele pakket van verkeer, veiligheid tot logistiek’, is de stellige overtuiging van commercieel directeur Mark Ponne van de Safety Group. ‘Daarbij blijven

FG2015_ADV_CrowdSupport.indd 36

de labels zelf volledig zelfstandig functioneren, maar kan de opdrachtgever wel te allen tijde profiteren van onze synergie, verbinding en meer dan kwalitatieve backoffice van de gehele group.’ De puzzelstukjes vallen logisch op de plaats. Met de labels kan de Safety Group namelijk voor alle evenemen­ ten, van groot tot klein, het totaalplaatje van ticketing, vervoer, ontvangst, beveiliging en hospitality invullen. Ponne: ‘Voor de opdrachtgever is vooral de projectmatige afstemming tussen de verschillende takken van sport een grote pré. Dat neemt niet weg dat wij ook goed kunnen samenwerken met andere bedrijven. Zowel in uitvoer als kostenplaatje bieden wij met de bundeling van krachten voor iedere organisator van een evenement de kans om mee te profiteren van onze efficiëntie. En denk dan niet alleen aan de hele grote klussen. Neem als voorbeeld de opname van een tv-programma. Dat begint bij ticketing, parkeerbegeleiding, brandwacht en gaat door tot de beveiliging, registratie en hospitality aan de deur. Met ons advies en de hoge kwaliteit van onze producten kom je zo tot een maximale zekerheid dat alles goed verloopt en goed geregeld is. Maak daarbij ook gebruik van onze adviesfunctie, want die relatief kleine investering vooraf, bespaart uiteindelijk kosten.’

Dit kan de Safety Group voor u regelen: Traffic Support Events Bij elk evenement staat de beleving centraal. Voor de bezoekers en voor de organisatoren. Verkeersregelaars van Traffic Support Events zijn er om richting te geven en alles in goede banen te leiden. Want voor óns gaat het vooral om bereikbaarheid. Om optimale doorstroom en maximale veiligheid. Want dat zien wij als de basis voor een succesvol evenement.

Crowd Support De perfecte balans tussen veiligheid en gastvrijheid. Dat is het doel en resultaat van de dienstverlening van Crowd Support. Als specialist in evenementenveiligheid en crowd manage­ ment lopen we voorop in kennis en ervaring. Daarmee onder­steunen en ontzorgen wij u als organisator. Dat betekent optimale veiligheid en maxi­ male zekerheid. Altijd en overal.

Event Travel

Online Ticket

Sinds 1995 zijn bezoekers van festivals, concerten en dance­ events uit en thuis met de busreizen van Event Travel. Onze luxe touringcar service is een begrip onder organisatoren en een beleving voor de gasten. Een geslaagd evenement begint en eindigt dan ook met de zekerheid en veiligheid van de perfect georganiseer­ de reis.

Met Online Ticket is elk evenement tot in de details geregeld. Als specialist in verkoop en controle van vervoer­en parkeer­ tickets maakt Online Ticket het dienstenpakket van Safety Group écht compleet. Want voorafgaand aan een evenement en al voordat de bezoeker van huis vertrekt zijn de nodige tickets online beschikbaar. En dat geeft naast zekerheid ook een ontspannen gevoel. De beste start voor een geslaagd event.

VPN, Vervoersprojecten Nederland

IVON, Instituut Veiligheidsopleidingen Nederland

Vervoersprojecten Nederland (VPN) betekent zekerheid in personenvervoer. En die zekerheid is meer dan belangrijk voor het succes van uw event en voor de ervaring van de bezoeker. Want de beleving begint bij de heenreis en wordt mee­genomen bij de terugreis. Met VPN kunt rekenen op een optimale organisatie van begin tot eind.

LOVELAND WEEKENDER

KNOCK OUT! edition 2

HOUSE, TECHNO

Loveland returns to its roots with Loveland Weekender. Back in 1995, the concept of a big indoor pool party was first introduced. In 2014 it got even better with the extended Weekender version. Loveland will host this three day event again in 2015 in a bungalow park in the south of the Netherlands. The party will feature three days of dance events combined with a choice of activities and entertainment. There will be events in the tropical pool, an open-air festival and different parties every night all over the park.

HARDSTYLE

Knock Out! first took place in 2009 as a new Hardstyle event at the SilverDome in Zoetermeer, before it moved to the renovated Ahoy Rotterdam sports arena in 2013. The Knock Out! formula guarantees a high-quality and innovative line-up, and a characteristic ‘underground’ atmosphere. In addition, Knock Out! features a creative battle between popular artists. Ahoy Rotterdam is known for its superb acoustics. Knock Out! attracts 10,000 visitors in Ahoy Rotterdam each year.

Advertorial

‘ORGANISATIE VRAAGT STEEDS VAKER OM TOTAALOPLOSSINGEN’ G3 Presents is een van de grotere spelers op de markt voor tijdelijke onderkomens. Niet alleen voor muziekevenementen, maar ook voor sportevenementen en andere projecten waarbij een behoefte aan accommodatie bestaat. “Festivalorganisaties vragen steeds vaker naar totaaloplossingen in plaats van losse producten”, constateert Managing Director Bas Redhead. G3 Presents – voorheen G3 Festivals – constateert een belangrijke verschuiving als het gaat om campings en andere accommodatie bij festivals. “Er is steeds meer aandacht voor de overnachtingen bij festivals”, zegt Bas Redhead. “Waar vroeger een stuk terrein werd aangewezen waar bezoekers hun tentje ergens neer konden zetten, wordt de accommodatie bij evenementen steeds vaker een wezenlijk onderdeel van het festivalconcept. Organisatoren zien het steeds meer als essentieel onderdeel van de totaalbeleving.” En dat alles in het kielzog van het breder wordende bezoekersprofiel met een roep om meer comfort en gemak. BRANDING Een belangrijk product van G3 Presents is de zogeheten ‘pre-pitched campsite’, waarbij het bedrijf producten levert aan de organisatie die voorzien zijn van de branding van het festival of de organisatie. “Denk daarbij aan op maat gemaakte tenten, die eventueel kunnen worden ingericht met branded slaapzakken, luchtbedden, een lampje en een slotje.” De organisatie kan vervolgens zelf de tenten met inhoud doorverkopen aan bezoekers en beslissen of deze de tent na afloop mogen houden als merchandise. G3 zorgt niet alleen voor de producten, maar ook voor de logistiek en de opbouw en inrichting van de tenten. De bezoeker kan er dus direct in. VERHUUR Vorig jaar heeft G3 Presents de eerste stappen gezet in het leveren van verhuuraccommodaties. Het principe is grotendeels hetzelfde, de accommodaties zijn luxer en comfortabeler, en uiteraard zorgt het bedrijf in aanvulling daarop voor het afbreken en het transport na afloop van het project. Voor de verhuur ontwikkelde G3 Presents een aantal nieuwe concepten. Voorbeelden daarvan zijn ruime opblaasbare tenten en luxe ‘lodges’ met houten vloeren. Nieuw voor 2015 zijn opblaasbare ‘hotel pods’

FG2015_G3 festivals advertorial.indd 84

12-12-2014 15:54:58


Advertorial

met led-verlichting, usb-aansluiting, harde wanden en volwaardige voordeur compleet met elektronisch slot. Deze pods komen in twee maten en met of zonder airconditioning. G3 Presents heeft nog meer vernieuwende producten in ontwikkeling. Alle verhuuraccommodaties beschikken over echte bedden met matrassen, linnengoed, tafeltjes, stoeltjes en verlichting. HOSPITALITY “Onze oplossingen kunnen ook worden ingezet voor andere doeleinden, zoals sportevenementen, maar ook als tijdelijke onderkomens voor bouwprojecten op afgelegen locaties, en voor vele andere toepassingen”, aldus Redhead. Daarnaast vragen steeds meer evenementenorganisaties niet meer om de levering van losse producten, maar om het regelen van een oplossing voor de accommodatie voor een bepaald aantal personen. “Die centrale rol past ons ook prima. We worden steeds vaker gevraagd als een soort hospitality-partner voor een evenement.” INTERNATIONAAL Alle activiteiten worden internationaal aangestuurd vanuit het centrale kantoor in Amsterdam, met een kleine club mensen. “Maar we schalen natuurlijk razendsnel op voor een productie”, zegt Redhead. Die producties bevinden zich overal op de wereldkaart. Zo is G3 Presents bijvoorbeeld internationaal partner van Tomorrowland en Tomorrowworld. Maar ook andere toonaangevende festivals als Mysteryland, Defqon, Hurricane en Wilderness Festival mag G3 tot zijn klantenkring rekenen.

In 2012, Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant voted the International Jazz Festival Middelburg one of the ten best festivals in Europe. No doubt this was the result of the festival’s excellent programming over the years: E.S.T., Avishai Cohen, Joshua Redman, Gregory Porter, Mike Stern/Bill Evans, Archie Shepp, Richard Bona, Al Di Meola, James Carter, Kyteman, Eric Vloeimans, Larry Graham, José James, etc. With this strong history in mind, the ninth edition of the International Jazz Festival Middelburg, that will take place during Pentecost weekend 2015, promises to write another great chapter in the festival’s already impressive story.

When planning this event, there were three conditions: a quality line-up, the best sound system and only one stage, to fully focus on the artists and their music. An event where music lovers would explore and discover great music at one of the most beautiful outdoor festival locations in Amsterdam. 909 takes place in the Amsterdamse Bos (Amsterdam Forest) next to a quiet lake, surrounded by beautiful trees.

Night at the Park is one of the most unique festivals in the Netherlands. There is no better way of enjoying good music, good food and a great atmosphere. Every last Saturday of June, Zuiderpark in The Hague is the place to be for all of the above. The first edition of Night at the Park welcomed great bands like Golden Earring, De Staat, Van Dik Hout, De Kraaien and Madness. In 2015, Night at the Park will blow you away with another spectacular line-up.

Immerse yourself in Celtic realms with bands from home and abroad, a comprehensive market and various activities. You can also enjoy delicious ‘oerhammen’ (gammon), spare ribs, and other delicacies you wash away with a drink from a nice ceramic cup. Even the method of payment for this is special: the Fyndlingh, the Rapalje bronze coin! We provide a packed programme for both adults and children. Workshops, archery contests and children’s Highland Games, as well as just enjoying a drink in the grass with the sounds of beautiful folk music around you. The Rapalje Zomerfolk Festival is a feast for everyone!

DANCE, HOUSE

DUBSTEP, EXPERIMENTAL, HARDCORE, HARDSTYLE, MINIMAL

Valtifest is a colourful city festival that takes place every first Saturday in september at the NDSM wharf, a decayed industrial site near the centre of Amsterdam. Organised by Meubel Stukken & MTV, the festival combines frenzied creativity, madness, innovative music, fashion, arts and acrobatics.

As we know, most of these institutions lack the funds to do something extra for their students and patients. To enlist themselves, institutions can send a motivation letter in which they explain their situation and their need of musical instruments. FeelGood aims to contribute to the therapeutic benefits of music by organising this benefit festival. Come join us and help us make people happy!

DAYDREAM FESTIVAL - DREAM WITH YOUR EYES OPEN edition 6

DANCE, HARDSTYLE, TECHNO, HOUSE, DUBSTEP

Have you ever dreamed with your eyes open? At Daydream Festival, magical thoughts are realized and come to life, and these inspirations expand boundaries. In this dream, the sky is the limit and time cannot be controlled. That is why, as of this year, daydreamers don’t have to stop dreaming after one day but can enjoy an extra day of dreams. It started in 2010 when Par-T managed to organize a new event and completely sold out. Daydream festival is known for its theatrical decors and good atmosphere, and was therefore nominated for Best Newcomer at the European Dance Awards.

Ethno Flanders is an international exchange for young musicians from all over the world.

Bringing together participants from a variety of cultural backgrounds, Ethno is a space for intercultural learning, friendship and exchange.

Where mega-happenings set up festival sites the size of villages, LA TRUITE MAGIQUE is aiming for quite the opposite: keeping things small and intimate. Creating a nice and relaxed atmosphere (for both bands and audience) is one of the main goals of the organisation. If you enjoy exiting bands, never losing your friends and making new ones, delicious food and all the little things in life, we think you may want to be part of the LA TRUITE MAGIQUE community.

BOTERHAMMEN IN HET PARK

DANCE, HARDCORE, HARDSTYLE, HOUSE, TECHNO

FOLK, DUTCH, SINGERSONGWRITER

Fantasia Festival is a big EDM spectacle with national and international DJs. Each year, the beautiful decoration fits the festival’s theme; last year’s theme was ‘Inca’. At the main stage, expect lasershows and fireworks. The headliners in 2013 and 2014 were big names including Faithless, John Dählback, Chuckie and Axwell. In 2015, expect more incredible names.

The fairly unique festival formula remains just as fresh from the oven: FREE OF CHARGE, an up-todate selection of Dutch-speaking and/or Flemish musicians, the last week of the summer holidays, from Monday 24 to Friday 28 August, on that attractive bandstand in the Warande Park in the middle of upper-Brussels, close to Central Station and metro station Park, organised by Ancienne Belgique, with the support of the Flemish Community.

FEEËRIEËN edition 11

EXPERIMENTAL, FOLK, MINIMAL, SINGERSONGWRITER

Free music festival, recommended for connoisseurs of the enchanting and outdoor cocooners. We couldn’t capture the spirit of the Feeërieën better than De Standaard once worded it: “Once a year the Warande Park in Brussels transforms into a fairy-tale forest where weird and wonderful music resounds, between trees strewn with colourful lights. The musicians who play here – for a quiet-asa-mouse, usually seated, audience – are masters of melancholy. All this takes place under a thick leafy ceiling, on a bandstand that bathes in misty blue lights. A fata morgana such as you have never seen.”

BLUES

Meadows In The Mountains Festival unleashes its otherworldly sunset, sunrise and sun kissed line-up for its 5th chapter in June 2015. With over 40 artists already announced, Meadows is back bigger, better, with a wider spectrum of music and a superb array of creative art collectives and installations, set across three days in an unrivalled and breathtakingly beautiful festival vista. Set in the heart of Bulgaria’s stunning Rhodope Mountains, Meadows is completely unlike any other festival in the world. The festival is very proud of its quirky and different attitude, that does not follow others trends or any other festival’s concept.

The main goal of this festival is to bring back electronic music to Saarland.

Paléo Festival currently is one of Europe’s most important musical events.

The green location Sauwasen, once meant to be the land for pig farmers, is surrounded by tall, shady trees which give the festival an idyllic ambiance.

A truly unique boutique music festival, OFF Festival takes place annually in August in ‘Three Lake Valley’, Katowice – a beautiful green oasis in the heart of industrial Silesia. OFF Festival is more than just a musical event, it’s a way of life, one that flies in the face of current trends and stays true to itself. The ethos of organiser Artur Rojek is firmly aimed at supporting new, challenging and ambitious music – from international alternative stars to new and intriguing faces on the Polish scene.

SUMMER BREEZE Open Air is approaching its 18th installment. For the 10th time in a row already, the metallic breeze will blow in beautiful Dinkelsbuehl, from 12 - 15 August 2015. As usual, this year’s SUMMER BREEZE will take place over three days on the Aeroclub Dinkelsbuehl airfield, between Sinbronn and Illenschwang. There will be a merciless display of loud music on two open air stages with no simultaneous performances, as well as in the Party Tent and on our fourth stage, the latter two already starting with our Warm-Up Day on Wednesday 12 August.

ØYAFESTIVALEN ROCK, POP, EXPERIMENTAL, URBAN

edition 17

Øyafestivalen started in 1999 with the philosophy of building up the Oslo music scene. Today, it’s the biggest festival in Norway, with global artists headlining, but Øya’s heart is still in the details – the music we curate, how the site is created, the friendly atmosphere, our environmental focus and the organic food we serve. The festival has sold out in advance for the last twelve years. 2014 marked the start of a new era: Øya moved to an amazing new site, Tøyenparken, which is bigger and better than our old playground in every way.

Iceland Airwaves has become one of the premier annual showcases for new music – Icelandic and otherwise – in the world.

Rolling Stone magazine called it “The hippest long weekend on the annual music-festival calendar.” But there’s more to Airwaves than music. Reykjavík is quite possibly the perfect festival city – small enough to be welcoming, sophisticated enough to offer cultural, historical and nightlife diversions to rival cities ten times its size.

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE edition 2 We are going to take a three-day tumble in De Groene Heuvels (The Green Hills) park, hidden in the rolling land between the Maas and Waal rivers, neighbouring an underwater paradise with a centuries-old natural source. Idyllic indeed! Down The Rabbit Hole means adventure, confusion, surrealism and psychedelica, which has always been an inspiration for (psycho) rockers, DJs, artists, designers and filmmakers ever since the rise of the pop culture in the uncurbed 1960s... Good company, so get ready to tumble... It’s A Campingflight Down The Rabbit Hole! And we will go down collectively, so be prepared. A frontrunner line-up on the stages and equal measures of thrill in and around those tents. It’s your party too, so spin a record, cook a meal, build a raft, hip a hop. We’re out and we’re loose. But let’s party in a sustainable way: we’ll keep it green & clean. We have all the time in the world, there’s no rush. Take your time to dine, go meditate in the forest, lie down in the green pasture, swim for a bit, help build the tower, strum by the campfire, discover hidden discos... Have a ball with brand-new bands or finally see that classic artist in full swing. Build your own party and celebrate, enjoy what you do, all with an open mind!

NDSM OPEN

NDSM SUMMER

The NDSM wharf, Europe’s biggest artist studio complex, is OPEN! NDSM OPEN invites everyone to their open day. NDSM OPEN is a multidisciplinary event for people who want to get inspired and to get to know the artists, crafts people and other creative producers working at the NDSM artist studio complex on this former shipyard in North Amsterdam. NDSM OPEN presents every aspect of the wide-ranging activities taking place on the dockland site – we’ll surprise and excite you, and capture your imagination. As well as the open studios, at NDSM OPEN you’ll find plenty of home grown art works and projects.

When summer comes and schools close for holiday, everyone sets out on a voyage of discovery, in search of the sun, seeking pleasure, looking for relaxation and suspense. This is why Stichting NDSM-werf organises NDSM SUMMER, a summer full of outdoor activities and pop-up events. In every corner of NDSM wharf, there will be something to do, so that everyone can roam around the wharf and discover all activities.

NO MILK TODAY

OHM FESTIVAL

BLUES, POP, ROCK, ROOTS

HOUSE, TECHNO

Houbie’s NO MILK TODAY saw the light at Amsterdam’s NDSM wharf in 2011. The festival represents the offline part of Stillman. Everything that is rock ‘n’ roll and no longer gets its milk bottlefed is gulped down by the hungry belly of NO MILK TODAY and kicked on to the big stage. Our stamp of approval is given to upcoming artists with a rock ‘n’ roll vibe and brutally strong live performances. From americana to stonerrock, from blues to rockabilly. Three bands, one headliner, two DJs and a massive hangover!

After a very successful second edition of Ohm Festival, the organisation figured it was a must to come up with a third edition, which will take place on 30 May. Ohm Festival, a collaboration between Elevation Events and Zeezout, offers a combination of house- and techno music, a suitable location and loads of activities, which makes Ohm one of the most progressive festivals.
