The lineup is in place, the site set up: DGTL Amsterdam is finally here. Starting on Friday, unadulterated creativity will be on display in one of the capitals of electronic music.
Melding sonic, visual, and culinary arts while maintaining its lofty commitments to green initiatives, DGTL is firmly entrenched at the vanguard of artistry.
Here's everything you need to get ready for an incredible weekend.
Where is it?
DGTL's flagship festival goes down at the cultural hub known as the NDSM Docklands in the north end of Amsterdam, across the IJ river.
How do I get there?
If you're flying in, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) is a 15 minute train ride into the centre of the city.
Once you're in Amsterdam, the easiest and most fun way to get to the festival is to take the 905 or 906 ferry from Amsterdam Centraal Station, which drops you off directly north of the venue.
DGTL is all about cutting edge sounds, so the lineup is made up of everything from up-and-coming disruptive talent to established trendsetters. Notable names this year are Âme (doing an Âme II Âme set), Floating Points and Hunne playing a special B2B, Jeff Mills, Tale Of Us, and Speedy J.
Some live highlights are Stephan Bodzin, Red Axes, Telefon Tel Aviv, Dax J, and Nathan Fake.
What does it sound like?
DGTL sounds like that conversation you overheard on the train between people you wished were your friends. Either that or it sounds like this playlist.
What does it look like?
DGTL is known for creative truly mesmerising videos. They aren't the most literal things you're going to see, but they paint a picture of festival's atmosphere like no other.
What are people saying?

I can't decide if João's calm, logical approach and ellipsis is unnerving or sweet.
Waiting for you... #DGTL— João Mosby (@gabmenndess) March 23, 2018
