Dutch Fest DGTL to Make U.S. Debut In December With NYC & LA Shows – Billboard
Written by GRB on 17/10/2023
Dutch dance festival DGTL will produce its first U.S. editions this December.
DGTL launches in the States with back-to-back days happening on opposite ends of the country. On Friday, Dec. 1, the festival will go down in New York City with a lineup that includes a live set from Danish trio WhoMadeWho, techno titan Ida Engberg, amapiano artist AMÉMÉ, German deep house producer Henrik Schwarz, Irish mainstay Mano Le Tough and South Korean producer Shubostar.
The next day, a similar version of this show will happen 3,000 miles away in Los Angeles, with DGTL’s Dec. 2 lineup also featuring WhoMadeWho, Mano Le Tough, Henrik Schwarz and Shubostar, along with French duo Parallelle.
Venues for these events have not yet been announced.
Both shows will be put on in partnership with the longstanding New York City-based electronic producer Teksupport, with the Los Angeles show also produced in partnership with Stranger Than. Both companies have established themselves by producing dance events in non-traditional locations in their respective regions.
Originating in Amsterdam, DGTL has also done festivals in Barcelona, Madrid, Tel Aviv, Bengaluru, Mumbai, New Delhi, Santiago, São Paulo and Guadalajara.
Since its launch in The Netherlands in 2013, the festival has become known for its immersive, cutting-edge stage designs. It’s also a leader in sustainable live events, with initiatives including plant-based food options on site, extensive recycling programs and elimination of single-use plastics and residual waste.
