We’ve been getting quite a few questions about Dekmantel Festival ever since Wyatt played their São Paulo edition in March 2018. It was such a unique and well-produced experience, we’re hoping to be back soon. The sort of music played is underground electronic and unfortunately, there’s no festival quite like it in the United States. It’s sort of similar to Coachella’s DJ stage, but not exactly… So thought I would explain everything in this post, in hopes of inspiring your personal playlist! xo -Sabrina
Dekmantel Festival is a cutting edge electronic music festival in Amsterdam, established in 2013. Curating a lineup of the most creative and influential acts in house, techno and beyond, this is your favorite DJ’s favorite festival. Encouraging its acts to take risks instead of playing the hits, Dekmantel has built a reputation for championing artistry, leading it to become one of the most respected festivals in Europe.
In 2017, the first edition of Dekmantel Festival took place in São Paulo with much success. In 2018, the festival returned to the Brazilian metropole taking place in the abandoned theme park Playcenter.
Artists who have played Dekmantel: Jamie xx, Peggy Gou, Four Tet, Floating Points, Palms Trax, Young Marco, The Black Madonna, Tangerine Dream, John Talabot
