It might have taken two years of patience
It might have taken two years of patience but, dear Lente Kabinet, you were completely worth the wait. A million thanks go out to everybody — artists, crew and guests — who made this year’s comeback possible; it’s been a dream.
Pre-registration for Lente Kabinet 2023 is now open, head over to the Lente Kabinet website.
Back with a bang
Back with a bang, of course Ben UFO continues his winning Lente Kabinet streak! Following his last mainstage shutdown, this year we invited the Hessle Audio boss for an intimate, experimental set in our Derde Kamer with Bud.
The beats, the smiles, the moves...
Half Queen just set our Patta Soundsystem area on fire, and we can’t imagine a more joyous festival debut.
Zuli ain't afraid to pull out all the stops
From twisted jungle to heavyweight grime and bass, here's how his sledgehammer of a set took Lente Kabinet Festival by storm.
The ultimate recipe for euphoria

When UK tastemakers Steven Julien and Shy One join forces
When UK tastemakers Steven Julien and Shy One join forces on the Patta Soundsystem stage, the common denominator is constant surprise. From electro to hip-hop to breaks, these two taught Lente Kabinet festival an A+ lesson in eclecticism.
The Dome of Lente Kabinet is home to a future-minded variety of artists
Expect to get enchanted by – among others – feminist science fiction, slow talks about fast music, and ritualistic performance art. Drop by, dive in!
The past, the present, the future

OJOO GYAL builds her towering wall of sound
OJOO GYAL builds her towering wall of sound on a foundation of burning, twisted, irresistible rhythms. At Lente Kabinet Festival the rising DJ just proved why she’s the one to watch.
Can our love for Kamma & Massalo grow even stronger?
Can our love for Kamma & Massalo grow even stronger? Judging by today’s triumphant Lente Kabinet set, the answer’s an obvious, bigger-than-ever YES!
The divine power of Russel E.L. Butler
Russell E.L. Butler has the divine power of making you want to rave, rest, laugh, roar and shed a tear (all at the same time). Here’s how the artist touched Lente Kabinet Festival with their otherworldly talent.
The new Lente Kabinet Festival Merchandise
Did you see our brand new merch line yet? Here are some of this weekend's artists with the new Lente Kabinet Festival shirts and long sleeves, designed by Stefan Glerum. A limited batch is available at our on-site merch booth.
Meetsysteem fills de Vierde Kamer with unfiltered creativity
Meetsysteem exhibits the beautiful void between ambient and club, between poetry and pop. Lente Kabinet Festival just got to see a raw glimpse of the artist’s soul, live in our Vierde Kamer with Bud.
The evening is slowly approaching
The evening is slowly approaching and day 2 of Lente Kabinet is in full swing! We have some changes in our program: unfortunately Bored Lord won't be able to perform due to travel issues and DJ Nigga Fox will play at the Derde Kamer instead of the Vierde Kamer. An up-to-date timetable can be found in our app — download it for free via this link!
Instant happiness with a pinch of spice
Instant happiness with a pinch of spice and some soothing nostalgia — indeed, that's Kléo bringing her delicious mix of house, wave and funk to Lente Kabinet festival.
Discover our art programme
Besides music, there is much more to experience at Lente Kabinet 2022: with love and attention we have also put together an art and culture program for you for this edition. Familiar faces such as Steven de Peven, Nikki Hock and Telemagic return for captivating installations and performances, while the talent of the future is represented with names such as Metter Sterre, jujulove and Agnes Momirski.
In the Dome, we have bundled many of these installations under a dome in which you can get lost in art. The mystique of G, a live discussion about fast music by Bakkie Bakkie, the abstract architecture of Children of The Light, the interactive art of Elsemarijn Bruys and much, much more come together in this exciting space.
Check out the full arts & culture program right here.

Extra information for today
It feels so surreal to welcome you again in Het Twiske after three long years. Our first day was one for the books, and we are ready to welcome you again from 1:00 PM!
In addition, we would like to update you on today's weather: we expect rain showers in the evening hours, but since the weather forecasts are constantly changing, so we will keep you informed of developments in the coming hours. We therefore recommend that you keep an eye on our socials, website and app (download it here).
In any case, bring a waterproof jacket and/or something warm. We have also taken extra measures on the site: the Tweede Kamer and the Derde Kamer are completely covered, and the Vierde Kamer and the food court are now also partially covered. In addition, we have free ponchos available at all bars. We would like to ask you to return it to the bars or take it home - this way we keep Het Twiske free of waste.
Last but not least: the shuttle buses for today are sold out, so we recommend that you choose an alternative way of traveling and come by taxi or bicycle, for example. We also have a very small batch of 200 tickets available at the door, so come early.
See you later!
The High Priestess Of The Motherbeat
Last night Eris Drew, aka High Priestess of The Motherbeat, brought the first day of Lente Kabinet Festival to its ecstatic closing. More magic awaits, however, as our second festival day is about to kick off. See you soon!
