Festival organisers are proud to present their 2019 line up! This year, the green fields and hills of Het Twiske will be home to 7 different stages. Each stage is unique, with a carefully selected sound and perfectly matched design. No matter where your journey will take you, every floor will present itself in a creative and intimate way, offering plenty of space to dance and to make new friends.
Welcome to the Future festival is extremely excited to have SVEN VÄTH and JOSEPH CAPRIATI headline the Main stage. Both will be making their Welcome to the Future debut this summer! We also welcome ADRIATIQUE, ENZO SIRAGUSA B2B ARCHIE HAMILTON to play at the festival for the first time. Our family members ICI SANS MERCI, BENNY RODRIGUES and LUUK VAN DIJK are representing the local scene on our center stage.
Honouring the festivals tradition, the biggest tent will be filled with top-notch Funktion One sound systems and trippy visuals. SAM PAGANINI, DAX J and RØDHÅD are in charge of this Techno heaven, alongside MATRIXXMAN, KOBOSIL, JUAN SANCHEZ and TAHKO. Just imagine yourself dancing eyes closed with nothing but relentless pure Techno pulsing through your body.
More legends and pioneers of the international House and Techno scene will be joining the 13th outdoor edition! FLOORPLAN, MATHEW JONSON (LIVE) and FRED P will be using our House stage as their creative playground in July. Welcome to the Future father and founder GERT VAN VEEN AKA QUAZAR (LIVE), SANDRIEN B2B CARLOS VALDES and TIMES ARE RUFF will be joining them to live up to the stages’ name.
Welcome to the realms of the Aurora… DERRICK MAY and DJ RUSH will take over this entirely new stage concept alongside FJAAK (live), DE SLUWE VOS, STEVE RACHMAD, LEWSKI and TITIA. Expect an inspiring outdoor space, feeling like a small festival on its own, enriched with light effects inspired by geometrical shapes found in nature.
Amsterdam is a stage that has accompanied the festival since our very first edition. It is dedicated to the hottest local talent and some of the best friends of the Welcome to the Future family: DETROIT SWINDLE, BORIS WERNER, FERRO, DORINE DORADO and DARLING B2B TRACEY. This season, Amsterdam will present itself outdoors, on a new location and in a new design. An absolute necessity on your timetable!
More heated Dutch sound will be provided by SECRET CINEMA, BART SKILS, PRUNK & CHRIS STUSSY, SAMUEL DEEP and DJ WINDOWS XP in the Salon. To play alongside them, the boys invited Brazilian heavy hitter ANNA to join the club! This area that feels just like a living room is located on a green meadow near the waterside.
Tucked away between bushes, the Garden is intimate, natural and loaded with a deep, profound sound. The following artists will join forces to transform it into a magical space for unexpected encounters to occur: LÖVESTAD, FRITS WENTINK, DAAN GROENEVELD, SPACEANDTIME and PABLO DISCOBAR SOUNDSYSTEM. Get in and get lost!
If you’ve ever been on our terrain, you might have wandered the shore of Het Twiske lake. It is there, away from the partying and busy dance floors, where we’ll be setting up a sacred space for everyone interested in the deeper effects of sound. Curious? Details will be shared with you soon!
And there’s a lot more to discover; break away from the ordinary and follow your instincts across our colourful festival garden…
