What is DGTL?.
You might not yet know about DGTL even though that’s about to change now that the event goes global. But to get you ahead of everyone else here’s a small brief on what the festival is and how it all started: DGTL is a sustainable and contemporary electronic music festival. The focus lies on house and techno, but the programme always has a broad selection of different genres. With this the festival wants to create an experience in which you can explore new music, without being constrained by genre labels.
In 2013, the first edition was held in the Amsterdam NDSM during the Easter weekend. This made DGTL the first large-scale event in the NDSM docklands. The success of this edition led to an expansion of the festival in 2014. From then on, it was a two-day event. In 2015, the organization added a new day and moved to three days. Since then, the festival has become insanely popular and is now one of the most talked about events during Easter in Amsterdam.
The typical visitor is between 25 and 45 years old, highly educated and international. They are interested in quality electronic music, new technologies and sustainable development. DGTL goes global, taking the best of Amsterdam with them. The electronic music festival is now expanding its boundaries and will soon be at your location. More info and tickets can be found here.
