DGTL returns and starts a brand new cycle



The world's first circular dance festival returns to the NDSM Docklands on 11 and 12 September 2021.


DGTL Amsterdam returns, putting 2020 firmly in the rear view mirror but taking lessons and insights from a year that has changed us all. A year of new opportunities, new promises and hope for a better world, 2021 presents a new cycle for everyone,  DGTL included. The festival will return to its celebrated homeland at the NDSM Docklands but for the first time, not as the official opener of the festival season. DGTL 2021 will instead take place on September 11th and 12th 2021, with presale tickets going live on Friday 5 February at 2:00 pm via www.dgtl.nl/2021-tickets.



After a year of reflection, DGTL sees 2021 as the start of A NEW CYCLE, a prescient moment in time where everything DGTL has worked on over the last eight years comes together as a true springboard to the future. That future begins now, writing itself by announcing the first wave of DGTL 2021’s line-up:



Acid Pauli | Adriatique | Afrodeutsche | Ben Böhmer | Blawan | The Blessed Madonna & HAAi | CamelPhat | Colyn | David Vunk | DJ Assault | DJ Python | Egyptian Lover | Eris Drew | Honey Dijon | Ingi Visions | KI/KI | Luke Vibert | Mala | Margaret Dygas | Meetsysteem | MEUTE | Mind Against | Nicola Cruz | Nina Kraviz | Paula Temple & SNTS | Ø [Phase] | Ricardo Villalobos | ROD | Worakls



‘Let’s rewrite our future. It’s time for a new cycle.’



DGTL Amsterdam may be moving itself to the end of the summer rather than its traditional place as the start of the festival season, but the circular message and identity of the festival stays absolutely central to its wider mission. Maintaining sustainable programming by combining international headliners with local talent, the team behind DGTL match this with their sustainable organisation methods. DGTL is the first electronic music festival to be produced in a fully circular manner, with an above-average focus on the challenges in the fields of energy, water and sanitation, food, raw materials and mobility. After a year in which it has become crystal clear how fragile life is on our planet, these steps have proven more important than ever.

By shifting its focus to September, DGTL can take even bigger and better steps towards a sustainable return to the festival landscape, with production levels that promise to erase the memory of 2020. The presale starts on Friday 5 February at 2:00 pm via www.dgtl.nl/2021-tickets.
