Alternative sounds in an alternative setting

Best Kept Secret is an alternative music festival in Hilvarenbeek, Netherlands. The biggest of its kind in the country, the festival is one of Europe's finest. 

Since its foundation in 2013, Best Kept Secret has consistently put together some of the best multi-genre lineups, pulling from outside the mainstream. 

Similar to Primavera Sound, the festival attracts a musically adept crowd. Unlike it's Spanish counterpart, BKS takes place in a safari park, complete with animals roaming the areas that surround its site.
