Best Kept Secret is the biggest alternative music festival in the Netherlands. Focusing primarily on guitar led indie and rock – but with helpings of hip-hop and electronic – the festival boasts consistently impressive lineups of some the world's best bands and artists. Previous headliners have included Beck, The Libertines, Pixies and Arctic Monkeys. 

Add to that a unique location complete with forests, a lake, and even an on-site beach and it's easy to see why the festival has become so popular just 5 years after the first edition.

So whether it's checking out the brilliant music on one of the five stages, exploring the surrounding woodland areas, or eating and drinking in one of the many outlets scattered across the site, you're certainly not going to be short of something to do at Best Kept Secret.
