The ultimate destination

The legendary Decibel weekend was already a must-do on your festival calendar. With the expansions on the festival site, Friday has now been made even more complete, with a total of 6 stages. We have already been able to get a few insights: Phuture Noize on the Mainstage and a number of artists with brand new showcases on the Hardcore such as Nosferatu and Never Surrender. An all-new Raw stage will make many hearts beat faster. The Sound of Decibel by Desperados is also a new area on this day: completely dedicated to the typical summer Decibel sound over the years. With names like Noisecontrollers, Zatox and Zany, you will relive many an iconic Decibel anthems.

‘Never in its 20-year existence has Decibel outdoor been so massive’

Saturday will also receive a major update. On the Mainstage we find some cool specials and additions, such as Rejecta presents The Keymaker, KELTEK LIVE, the Closing Session with N-Vitral and TNT. Of course we also have a next level anthem show waiting for us, and we know will be responsible for that! More on this soon. The festive Pussy Lounge has some new names and on both Raw stages we get a good number of cool specials in addition to a solid line-up. What do you think of: B-Front’s new Cosmos act, Rebelion presents Overdose, Hard Driver presents HDNA LIVE and The Purge presents TRIPPIN’? Within the hardcore genre, the new showcases of Broken Minds, Miss K8 (Eclipse), a unique special from DRS with Persona Non Grata and Imperial’s #Forevergrindin’ showcase of the line-up are the ones that have been revealed already.


During SAVAGE SUNDAY, it’s time to take it to the extreme, with all 12 (!) stages. A completely new interpretation of the last day of the festival. Even more brutal than Saturday, with a Battle stage and Hardcore Mainstage as ultimate additions. D-Sturb vs. Vertile and Warface vs. Act of Rage are already 2 battles to enjoy. A few names from the Hardcore Mainstage already show that this is going to be a serious hit: Sefa, D-Fence & Angerfist in back2back and Deadly Guns LIVE as Closing Session. An upgrade for the Mainstage is also not left behind, with Radical Redemption LIVE and Sub Zero Project presents Renaissance of Rave, in addition to the LIVE LOUD marathon (3.5h non-stop bashing) that we were already looking forward to in 2021.

“Decibel outdoor 2022 will be bigger, bolder, rougher and tougher!”

Decibel outdoor takes place from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 August on the epic terrain of the Beekse Bergen. Mark your calendars next Wednesday, March 23 at 20:00: because then the gigantic line-up of more than 300 artists will be fully announced and the regular sale of tickets and travel packages will start.
