About De Staat
De Staat are a rock band opening the floodgates to an intoxicating, even dizzying, array of genres, which is not particularly unusual for them. It’s been woven into their DNA since day one. They headlined the Alpha stage at Lowlands last summer with a highly acclaimed set. “De Staat rises above their own reputation in the Alpha tent… historical’’ – Volkskrant
About Boys Noize
As an artist and producer, BOYS NOIZE has created a sound that is peerless, uncompromising, and enduring – respected in the scene, banging from underground to mainstream, his work flies in the face of convention at every turn. He ́s rocked the world’s biggest stages, lit up Coachella three times, stormed Lollapalooza, and headlined festivals and clubs on every continent – from Berlin techno temple Berghain to Fuji Rock in Japan and Bon Iver’s Eaux Claires Festival in the woods of Wisconsin. All on his own terms.
TITIA always picks her records full of funk. Her sets are a well-tuned balanced blend between old, underground records and new releases, that have that raunchy, authentic sound. Her raw and grimy vibe brought her to TrouwAmsterdam, to play at the infamous Is Burning party, as well as Shelter, de School, BAR Rotterdam, Radion, ZeeZout, Cartel, La Java in Paris and she has also played many festivals in the NL and Belgium.
