OUR SPIRITUAL HOME
Nestled in the heart of the Westerpark's expansive greenery lies the Westergasfabriek – a 150-year old gas factory that is now home to a wealth of cultural goings-on.
Offering everything from independent shops to startup office spaces (hello, WeTransfer!), old-school street markets and hip new restaurants, this year we'll be taking over more terrain than ever before, with custom-built exhibition spaces and experiences.
A STAGE OF INDUSTRIAL SCALE
"The most awesome stage I've ever stepped foot on."
– Julie Zhuo, VP Design, Facebook
Our festival terrain is built around our famous main stage, the Gashouder: a decommissioned, industrial gas storage facility of epic scale and proportion. Last year we installed 2.3km of LED strip lighting throughout the Gashouder's roof and 12m holographic LED screens either side of the stage. Next year, we'll push the limits of production once again.
