What is Intents Festival?

Intents Festival is an annual harder styles festival held in the Netherlands. The first edition took place in 2004 and it has since become one of the largest electronic music festivals in the Netherlands. The festival is best known not only for its diverse lineups but for its fun and unique themes.

Each year the festival has a different theme that is incorporated throughout the event. The most notable being the Main Stage. Each year the Main Stage is decked out from top to bottom with incredible displays. This year’s theme is Kingdom of Unity. We are very curious to see what the Main Stage will look like this year! Moreover, Intents Festival will host 400 artists across ten stages over the course of three days.  

What sets Intents Festival apart from other harder styles festivals?

It’s undebatable that the Netherlands is the one of the go-to destinations when it comes to electronic music festivals. People from all over the world travel here each summer to see their favorite DJs and Intents Festival is no exception.

Intents Festival is unique when it comes to very close attention to the small details. This festival is so much more than just the music. The secret stages, fun houses, bumper cards, massive Ferris Wheel, it’s a feast for the senses. When you enter Intents you embark on a journey into a parallel universe, which is why we love festivals so much to begin with!

No aspect of the festival is overlooked, including the campsite! Intents City provides a one-of-a-kind camping experience. From traditional camping options to luxury chalets there’s something for everyone. The campsite is fully equipped with the essentials such as Mega Beerpong, hot tubs, a ball pit, and so much more.

If three days of partying is not enough for you Intents offers a Mega Silent Disco Afterparty! INTENTS:AFTR is the largest silent disco party in all of Europe. Come dance along with your 5,000 closest friends to different DJ’s each night. If chilling at the campsite is more your vibe there is a 24/7 Cinema, a Coffee Club, BBQs, and plenty of spots to grab a bite to eat. From burgers to spring rolls to Burgundian croquettes, you can feast at the campsite!

To top everything off, Intents offers not one but two insane firework end shows! Close out the perfect weekend with a bang. It’s no surprise that Intents Festival has been voted one of the best festivals in Europe!
