What about the new line-up?
Last year when we first learned that we had to postpone 2020’s edition of Dekmantel Festival, we initially managed to reschedule the entire line up. As the year progressed however, some of those plans changed as we encountered further unexpected challenges due to COVID-19. The joined show of Seun Kuti, Egypt 80 & Yasiin Bey was one of our most special ever bookings, but sadly they can not make it now due to travel restrictions. We will try to make it happen in a future year instead. Secondly, Theo Parrish has decided to take an indefinite break from deejaying, so he will not be able to do his 10 hour set. We’re thrilled though to have found equally powerful substitutes in the form of Antal & Hunee (who remembers 2017’s epic mainstage closing?). Newly added faces include Dutch stars Job Jobse, Sterac and techno breakout act Nene H. Front 242, The Hacker & Miss Kittin and the artists from Australia and Brazil we hope to welcome in 2022.
The full program for the 2021 edition can be found on the festival website, check it out here.
For the 2022 line-up, we’re taking some time to think about our options but we can promise you that it will of course be in line with what we normally present to you!
