Returning to celebrate its five-year anniversary, the longest one-day festival in Holland will be back, bringing with it DJs from the depths of deep house, tech-house and techno till the sun rises over the North Sea Channel on Sunday morning.

Taking over an old factory at Zaandam harbour, 18hrs will be split between outdoor stages that will run until 11pm, and indoor warehouses to carry on till 6am, each brand hosted with a different twist. 

And because it's their fifth birthday, expect a few extra surprises too.
