Best Kept Secret is the biggest alternative and rock festival in the Netherlands. Unrivalled lineups and a unique safari park location have placed Best Kept Secret at the very forefront of European multi-genre festivals, even after just 3 years.

Striking out with a guitar-crammed weekend in a Dutch ocean of electronic festivals, Best Kept Secret has made giant strides since its first edition in 2013. Names like alt-J and The Jesus and Mary Chain don't turn up for just any old festival.

And as if the music weren't enough, the location is as unique as they come: five stages of international stars, surrounded by woodland and lakes full of exotic safari animals. Best Kept Secret is not one to be missed.
