Inclusiveness and innovation are at the heart of Holland’s Welcome to the Future Festival 2017

For the eleventh year in a row, Het Twiske’s mesmerising nature reserve––just outside of Amsterdam––will host one of the Dutch summer’s most extraordinary house & techno events.

 festival is nothing without the people, they are part of the artwork. It’s what the Germans call a Gesamtkunstwerk. This comprehensive approach makes Welcome to the Future Festival feel more like a family gathering––of both the artists and their dedicated crowd. Uniting on the dancefloor, they exemplify a movement, that cherishes values like positivity, togetherness and freedom of expression.

Welcome to the Future family members include some of house and techno’s most relevant DJs and live-acts. Household names like Loco Dice, Chris Liebing, Seth Troxler, Dave Clarke, Kölsch, Damian Lazarus, Kerri Chandler and Lil Louis are among those headlining the eight stages. And, as always, the Dutch scene is strongly represented, with names like Tom Trago, Steve Rachmad, ROD, De Sluwe Vos, Joran van Pol and Wouter S.

Both on the house and the techno side, there are new sounds to be discovered. The addition of the eighth stage, Basement, allows further exploration into the deepest realms of techno, with artists like Artefakt, Monoloc and Audion aka. Matthew Dear (live). And two of lo-fi house’s most remarkable names are set to bring the heat at the Garden: Dj Seinfeld and Ross From Friends (live).

Not to mention all the other amazing talent taking to the stage. And sustainability, of course. With its leave no trace philosophy, organic food and free water bars, Welcome to the Future is in the top ten greenest festivals in the world.

This is the future, and everyone is invited. Be sure to join the gathering, July 22nd. Tickets on sale now at
