"All about the music" runs Best Kept Secret's ethos, and yes, their lineup of indie, rock, hip-hop and electronic is incredible, but what about the location!

Best Kept Secret's five open-air stages sit inside Beekse Bergen Safari Park, meaning animal-lovers can go and party with the giraffes while others relax to music on beachside stages next to a large lake.

Despite 2015 being only its third year, Best Kept Secret manages to curate a lineup that just oozes class, from the guitar-slashes of The Libertines and the indie-sounds of alt-J, all the way up to old-timers Ride through the cut-throat raps of Earl Sweatshirt.

A charming blend of quality with a boutique, original feel, there's no turning back once you've discovered this Dutch secret.
