After all these years, the time has finally come: Decibel outdoor is about to celebrate the largest edition ever with 120,000 visitors. Never before has B2S brought so many harder styles artists to The Loudest City on Earth and prepared a huge amount of moments that will form the many highlights of the festival.

Yes, you read that right. In 3 days, more than 300+ artists will be playing on the 30 different stages. You can find all the harder styles surrounded by the water at the Beekse Bergen: perhaps the most beautiful festival location in the Netherlands.

300+ artists throughout the Decibel weekend

You must have noticed it already, because with all the new additions and extensions, Decibel outdoor has now been made even more complete. That is why the fetival has sat down with various artists behind the scenes for special sets, the final shows have been taken care of down to the very last detail and new stages have been added. Think of all the Closing Sessions, a really packed Saturday and a SAVAGE SUNDAY where all brakes are released when the entire festival site is opened up again.

There are simply too many to mention. That is why we have listed a selection of the highlights and specials here for you.
