We are less than a week away from one of the biggest weekends in the Dutch festival calendar and there’s a lot to look forward to! In addition to the stacked artist lineup, WiSH Outdoor has just announced an insane list of food trucks and vendors as well exclusive after parties! There’s a lot that goes down at this event so here are five things you didn’t know about WiSH Outdoor.
1. THE LINEUP IS EXCLUSIVELY DUTCH
Home to many of the biggest and best names in the world, the Dutch are spoilt for choice when it comes to local artists. This festival has over 100 artists spread out across three days and that’s not even a fraction of what the Netherlands has to offer! Make sure to check out some of the local favourites such as Snollebollekes, one of the most ridiculous and exciting acts I’ve ever seen! Find out more about the lineup here.
2. THERE ARE OVER 25 LOCAL FOOD TRUCKS AND VENDORS
The only thing I love more than music is food and this festival has it all! They recently announced a list of local vendors with food ranging from Dutch delicacies to a variety of international dishes. I’m keen to try some traditional Stroopwafels and check out their take on some Asian and American meals!
3. THERE’S NO MINIMUM AGE!
Well not quite. Access to the festival on Friday and Saturday is strictly limited to people 18 and over. On ‘Surprising Sunday’, tickets are made available for children 12 and under when accompanied by an adult so anyone can come and enjoy the music and fun!
4. THERE’S FREE WIFI!
Thanks to festivalhotspot.nl, you’ll be able to “Drop it like it’s hot(spot)”! With access to fast and free wifi at both main stages, you’ll be able to stay in touch with your friends and share your snaps instantly!
5. THERE ARE TWO OTHER EDITIONS OF WISH OUTDOOR FESTIVAL
In addition to the original WiSH Outdoor Festival in the Netherlands, there are two other international editions. The first takes place during the last weekend of May in Monterrey, Mexico, which I had the pleasure of attending earlier this year. WiSH put on an incredible event over in Central America and has had me looking forward to the Dutch edition ever since! The second takes place in Florence, Italy, with future dates yet to be confirmed.
WiSH Outdoor is about to sell out! Grab the last remaining tickets here.
