18hrs festival is an electronic rave north of Amsterdam. Deep house, techno and tech-house will carry the music for 18 full hours, from midday through the night and until early the next morning.

Fresh from its fifth birthday celebrations, 18hrs is pushing on and building on its already strong reputation. Unique staging, international lineups peppered with local talent and the unforgettable Elrow Sunday parties, all mark 18hrs out from the crowd.

With the music ringing out from open-air stages until 11pm and continuing until 6am inside the festival's old-school warehouses, 18hrs is one of the most insane one-day raves in Europe.
