One of Europe's most cultured cities, Amsterdam has always acted as a haven.
Historically a harbour town, the city's connections to the sea have allowed it to become an outward, accepting place. A hub for new music, Amsterdam also provides a home for a new breed of music festival.
PITCH Festival is one of the newer additions to the calendar. Set in Cultuurpark Westgasfabriek - a redeveloped factory site situated in Amsterdam West - it matches a unique location with a carefully curated bill.
Azealia Banks is set to appear at PITCH Festival, while Hudson Mohawke will provide a DJ set. Newly signed to Warp, Darkstar's live show displays a rare sense of control, and the London group will be sure to make this translate when they fly out to Amsterdam.
AlunaGeorge will take part, while other new additions include the pared down R&B of How To Dress Well, Omar Souleyman, Dizzee Rascal, Julio Bashmore and more.
Running between July 5th - 6th, PITCH is only a short flight away.
