The Intents Festival is one of the most prominent multi-day dance events in Europe and a well-known concept in the Netherlands and abroad. Intents consists of two full festival days, which is unique for a Dutch dance festival. The Intents festival has already featured many top performers from the hardstyle, hardcore and freestyle scene. The festival is known for its impressive shows. The final show on Saturday, for example, has elements such as light, video, pyrotechnics, lasers and other effects all running in sync with the music. Additionally, Intents does whatever it can to decorate the festival and the various stages and to construct iconic main stages.
Intents’ best feature, however, is its enthusiastic audience. These dedicated fans are what make this event truly special. Their enthusiasm is reflected in the festival’s atmosphere and on the Internet. The Intents Festival 2016 aftermovie has been viewed over a million times in just four months!
Over 6,500 party people, a sea of tents and unforgettable, sun-drenched moments, including Digital Punk at the Unleashed container. In short: a great success! The festival campsite is slated to return this year in a new form: “IntentsCity.” We guarantee you will have an unforgettable festival camping experience with even more specials, more entertainment and more extras!
