808 State (live) [Amsterdamse Bos]
"With last year's album 'Transmission Suite', one of the great British dance groups returned after over 15 years out the studio. Except, 808 State never truly went away: hits like "In Yer Face," "Cübik," "Flow Coma" and the supermassive "Pacific State" are etched into rave history. High-profile remixes by the likes of Aphex Twin, Grooverider and Bicep deepened that mark. Their new sound feels as in line with Swing Ting as it does A Guy Called Gerald. So 808 State have kept tabs with the evolution of a dance culture that they helped start right back in the mid-1980s, which makes them a perfect act for Dekmantel Festival in the here and now: heritage, but hyper-fresh too."

The Dutch government has announced that, due to Corona, all festivals in The Netherlands until 1 September 2020 have to be cancelled :(

Official statement from Dekmantel:

Dekmantel Festival moves to 2021 and brings along line-up

Following this week's announcement by the Dutch government that events will be prohibited until September 1st, we're saddened to have to postpone Dekmantel Festival 2020 to August 4 - August 8, 2021. It is a tough moment, but we're sure we do not need to explain how the pandemic has affected the lives of nearly everyone on the planet this year — we are resigned to fate as well.

While 2021 seems far away, we do have some highly positive news: we're bringing this year's Amsterdamse Bos line-up along with us to the next edition. We're appreciative that all these fantastic artists have worked with us swiftly and agreed to make themselves available to perform for you next year. News on artists scheduled for the Dekmantel Festival aan 't IJ programme (which takes place on the Wednesday and Thursday) will follow shortly too. Overall, the wait will be longer, but we promise it will be an unforgettable edition nevertheless.

All purchased tickets will be valid on the new dates. We are aware that you might have a number of questions regarding your purchase, but please hang tight – we will get in touch with all ticket holders via email very soon with full information regarding all options. In the meantime, we would like to ask for your understanding and patience.

By moving to 2021, we all have something to focus on. That said, losing Dekmantel Festival this summer does have a massive impact on our small team, as well as the wider network of people we work with all year round: musicians, artists, producers, partners, and countless freelancers. As such, we would like to take this opportunity to ask that you continue showing empathy for and actively supporting your favourite artists, labels, venues, and all other initiatives in the creative sector wherever you can. We need each other more than ever at a time of unprecedented turbulence.

Stay safe out there, take the guidelines to heart and look out for one another. We look forward to seeing you next summer.

– Team Dekmantel Festival

Dekmantel Festival 2021 has been postponed. :( Press release from Dekmantel:

"We have been working around the clock to make Dekmantel Festival a reality this year, so it is with a very heavy heart that we hereby have to inform you that we are forced to postpone the 2021 edition to 2022.

A couple of weeks ago the Dutch government officially allowed all event promoters to organise outdoor events. Today, due to a sharp rise in positive cases, as a result of a failing public test system, the same government decided to abruptly revert this policy and has prohibited all outdoor events until August 13th.

When a couple of weeks ago the green light was given, we were on the verge of canceling our festival due to the short preparation time. However, with the government’s blessing we started working around the clock with a dedicated but decimated crew to make the festival a reality. The last few weeks we’ve adapted to these extraordinary circumstances as best as possible. It’s very painful to face the reality that we are unable to deliver an amazing festival, and that all our work has been for nothing, for the second year in a row.

We have a lot of unanswered questions at the moment and we understand that you might have them as well. We promise that all ticket holders will be offered a fitting solution and we will get in touch next week with ticket options via email. Please wait with reaching out to our support team for now.

The impact this decision has on our small crew, all the artists who play at our festival, our partners, and our team of freelancers is enormous. Last year many of you showed your support which meant a great deal to us and helped us get through the year, for which we’re extremely grateful, and we trust that we will dance together in the Amsterdamse Bos in 2022.

Stay safe, much love
Team Dekmantel"
