SECRET PROJECT FESTIVAL RETURNS TO AMSTERDAM DANCE EVENT FOR SECOND EDITION ￼
The fairly new, but immensely popular festival adds Fatima Yamaha (LIVE), HAAi, KlangKuenstler, Marco Carola, Michael Bibi, Skream, Sven Väth and many more to its line-up
After a monumental sold-out first edition in 2021, Secret Project Festival is set to take place during Amsterdam Dance Event again in 2022. The LA-born festival has added a stellar list of artists to the line-up, including Fatima Yamaha (LIVE), HAAi, Marco Carola, Michael Bibi, Patrick Topping, Skream and Sven Väth. Ticket registration will open for an exclusive 48 hour period starting today at 12PM CET via amsterdam.secretproject.com.
With a line-up of massive proportions, Secret Project Festival is sure to be one of the stand out events at this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event. Close to 30 house, techno and tech-house heavyweights will perform across four stages throughout the day. From veterans like Marco Carola to the leaders of the new generation like Michael Bibi, Secret Project Festival has something to offer for a wide array of dance music fans.
Like the previous edition, Secret Project Festival will be held at het Hembrugterrein, an extraordinary venue across the water from Amsterdam’s harbor. Once serving as an industrial area, het Hembrugterrein was repurposed in 2003 as a creative and cultural institution while maintaining its original look, making it the perfect setting for multi-sensory events that Secret Project Festival has become so well-known for.
During Amsterdam Dance Event 2021, Insomniac brought its successful house and techno concept to European soil for the first time. Boasting a sold-out crowd, the anticipation was extremely high in the run up to the event, which took place across five different stages, each with a different visual concept and styles of music for everyone to enjoy alongside sculptures, light fixtures and much more to be entertained by. The festivalgoers partied well into the night, from the gates opening to a rush of those eager to see what the festival had in store for them to the sounds of the underground styles of relentless techno and deep, melodic house and tech-house with artists such as CamelPhat, Ben Böhmer and Loco Dice B2B Marco Carola spearheading the lineup. The industrial vibe of the location went hand in hand with the musical styles, creating a top notch audio visual delight for all involved. The Secret Project Festival European debut proved to be more than successful.
Born out of the bustling Los Angeles underground music scene, Secret Project Festival has been making waves in Europe with a string of widely acclaimed events. The first venture into the European market came with Secret Project Festival ADE 2021. Just mere months after, they upped the ante with the addition of Secret Project Portugal taking place in the sunny Mediterranean beach town of Portimão. Secret Project Festival is part of the Insomniac portfolio of events, which partnered up with Amsterdam-based event organizer ALDA. Together they’ve increased their presence globally and it is with collaborations like Secret Project Festival that the two have cemented themselves as one of the key players in the global scene.
