Where is the festival being held?

The last five few years, Dekmantel Festival was scattered across different locations in and around Amsterdam. Dekmantel Festival By Day is located in a meadow in the ‘Amsterdamse Bos’ (Forest of Amsterdam) which is just south of Amsterdam; it truly feels like home. Our address is Nieuwe Meerlaan 1, Amstelveen, The Netherlands. Fun fact: the exact festival site used to be Schiphol Airport, before the First World War. The current Schiphol Airport is at an almost literal stone throw away. We strongly recommend biking to the festival by the way!

The Wednesday (Opening Concert) and Thursday of Dekmantel Festival have been taking place around the 'IJ' river of Amsterdam (next to Central Station) for the past couple editions.

More information on the locations of our Wednesday & Thursday programme in 2022 will follow more closely to next year's edition.
