Dekmantel returns!

And what an impeccable edition it's already shaping up to be. This year has expanded horizons, opening up new partnerships and possibilities, all the while keeping plugged into that unrelenting devotion to pioneering electronica and club-orientated sounds that pulsates at the heart of the festival.

Today, the performances take place entirely in the cavernous concert hall of the Muziekgebouw. First up, Mathilde Nobel is not to be missed. The Björk-inspired songstress deconstructs pop, tangling together raw, emotion-fraught lyrics with gossamer, ear-worm melodies. Performing live, enter into the pensive and powerful world of Interstellar Funk. The frontrunner of the Dutch electronic music scene will be showcasing his synth prowess, intertwining hypnotic samples and machinic industrial. For an impeccable first day finale, living techno legend Jeff Mills will take to the stage with bandmates Prabhu Edouard and Jean-Phi Dary.
