Celebrating its 13thedition in 2019, WiSH Outdoor is returning to Beek En Donk in the Netherlands this summer. The annual three-day event regularly hosts over 100 artists across nine different stages, ranging from the harder styles to house, R&B and even party acts! The festival has grown to become one of the best-decorated festivals in the country, and is a favourite among locals and visitors alike.
“WiSH Outdoor is one of the best decorated festivals in the Netherlands”
Each year, WiSH Outdoor welcomes over 100 talented artists from multiple genres across the electronic music scene to the three-day event. What makes this festival stand out from the rest is that the lineup is made up of primarily (if not all) Dutch artists. This year’s lineup features a range of popular DJ’s ranging from the harder styles to house, techno, pop and more. As this is a Dutch event, it’s only fitting that the main and biggest stage is made up of nothing but the best of the harder styles. This year, the main stage will welcome the likes of Brennan Heart, Da Tweekaz, D-Block & S-te-Fan, Frequencerz, Phuture Noize and more. The three-day event will also see popular house DJ duo Lucas & Steve return, alongside other well-known names such as Cascada and Kris Kross Amsterdam. You can see the full lineup here.
