Over the past seven years, Dekmantel has produced a large number of club nights and released some really great records. The debut edition of the Dekmantel Festival took place in August 2013, and attracted some of the most-respected names in electronic music over three sunny days in the lush green setting of Amsterdamse Bos. With a host of DJs and producers ranging from leftfield originators to cutting-edge frontrunners, Dekmantel stripped the typical festival blueprint down to its basic elements, and rebuilt it with a massive upgrade.
At this year’s second edition, Red Bull Music Academy will be hosting The Woods stage, with live performances and DJ sets by the Moritz Von Oswald Trio featuring Tony Allen & Max Loderbauer, Detroit stalwarts Three Chairs aka Moodymann, Theo Parrish, Rick Wilhite & Marcellus Pittman, indie dance don Andrew Weatherall, UK mix machinesJackmaster & Oneman, longstanding Warp affiliates Plaid, Detroit’s favorite young sons Kyle Hall and Jay Daniel, Pampa boss DJ Koze, post-everything duo Mount Kimbie, Italian duo Tale Of Us, Vancouver’s rising Mood Hut crew, and Academy grads Jameszoo,Cinnaman, Braiden – alongside many others.
