Turn off the mainstream and see what's really out there

Best Kept Secret is a multi-genre, alternative music festival in Hilvarenbeek, Netherlands. Heading into its sixth year, the festival has quickly grown into one of the most respected in Europe. 

And with lineups of national and international talent pushing music forward, as well as a friendly and positive festival atmosphere, it's not hard to see why.

Taking place in the Safaripark Beekse Bergen, a scenic nature reserve, Best Kept Secret is centred around a lake, with animals roaming the areas surrounding the festival site.
