Just two weeks after their massive three-day, six-show, ADE extravaganza drew thousands of fans from all over the world, DGTL started ticket sales for their next flagship Amsterdam edition. On April 7, 8 and 9 2023, the festival giant will return to its homeland at the NDSM Docklands to celebrate ten years of the brand and showcase a brand new theme: TRANSITIONS.
Dropping an exclusive new brand video released across their social channels two days ago, DGTL‘s message is bold, visionary and clear. Carrying a deep sense of responsibility, the brand leans wholeheartedly into its desire to spearhead a new, purposeful direction within dance music and beyond.
In the trailer, two hands meet, one human, one digital. We see harmonious transition between human and technology, a meeting of minds, bodies and souls across music and art. In a world that seems in constant social, economic and environmental transition, we lie separated from the old but not yet incorporated into the new. It is in this space, this gap, this transitional period where endless potential for real, lasting change and exciting new discoveries lie. It is therefore in our hands, and anything is possible.
Sustainability & Responsibility
In 2022 DGTL hit an important milestone, becoming the world’s first circular dance festival. In 2023, DGTL’s sustainability team will work towards a new goal: positioning DGTL as a thriving festival that goes beyond circular. The festival will work with the Doughnut economy model in cooperation with the city of Amsterdam.
In recent years, DGTL has been working to get the festival’s emissions to 0 by using circular systems. Now they are taking the next step by asking visitors to take responsibility for the emissions from their travel movements. It comes down to collective accountability to ensure that the visitor’s last emissions are also reduced.
DGTL‘s Safe(r) Project will also return, using data collected from its first year in practice, 2022, to drive even more positive changes towards the festival’s diversity, inclusivity and community program.
