Dekmantel release Full opening concert

Dekmantel 2016, Amsterdam, dance house music festival on cone magazine

There’s more good news coming from the heart of the Dutch capital, with Dekmantel revealing its full showcase bill for the set of opening concerts.

This years Dekmantel has gotten a tad more delectable, since Dekmental revealed all of the bill for the live program last week. Set to commence on the 4th August, Acts penned included Avant-Garde mavericks Cabaret Voltaire, Brazilian Jazz funk Trio Azymuth, the multifaceted Berlin label Raster-Norton dishing out a series of progressive performances from core artists Beytone, Kanding Ray and Grischa Lichtenberger.

With already a spectacular live performance promised from the Afrobeat veteran Tony Allen, and both James Holden and Shakleton & Ernesto also opting for the live routethe theatrical element will certainly be on par.

Opening concerts will be hosted in four cultural institutions around Amsterdam’s IJ-River, with three new spots including Bimhuis, EYE film museum and Paradiso’s new dependence Tolhuistuin . They will all be well situated and connected by ferry links.

To add to this, Dekmantel will be hosting lectures, a film screening and a complementary night-program on August 4th (of which details are soon to be announced).
