Party ready in one go
Where do I buy tickets?
Where will the SHOWS take place?
All our shows will take place at the NDSM Docklands. Navigate to the following location: NDSM-Plein 85, 1033 WC Amsterdam.
I lost something during an SHOW, what now?
Lost something at the festival? We will publish all found items online via iLost.
When your belongings are left in the locker during our event, they will be returned to our supplier, Elockers. You can retrieve them by filling out this form.
WHAT ITEMS ARE PROHIBITED FROM BEING BROUGHT INSIDE?
Contact lens solution is prohibited, but it can be obtained from the first aid station if needed. Plastic water bottles, umbrellas, deodorant cans, and perfume bottles are not allowed inside.
CAN I BRING MEDICINE?
Please note that medicine will only be allowed into the premises if the package is sealed.
IS THERE ANY SPECIAL FOOD AVAILABLE? (GLUTEN-FREE ETC.)
Yes, we care about all of you, so we thought about all of you. Gluten-free food will be available at the food court. All foods served during DGTL 2024 will be plant-based and biologically produced.
DO I NEED TO PRINT MY TICKET?
Consider the environment before printing your tickets! We can scan your ticket directly from your phone. Keep in mind that you may not have an internet connection on site, so it is most convenient to download the ticket on your phone. If you prefer to print your ticket, you can do so as well.
ARE THERE LOCKERS AVAILABLE?
Yes, there are lockers available! You will find a lot of lockers just after the entrance of the festival where you can store your bag, clothes, and personal items. You can open and close your locker as many times as you want.
CAN I GET FREE WATER?
There will be free tap water in all toilet areas.
CAN I BRING DRUGS?
We have a zero-tolerance policy towards drugs.
CAN I BUY EARPLUGS AT THE FESTIVAL?
Please take care of your ears! With music above 87 dB, it is smart to use earplugs with a special music filter. With these earplugs, you can still hear the music perfectly; conversations remain intelligible and most important of all, you prevent hearing damage and the annoying ringing after the event. During DGTL ADE, Alpine PartyPlug earplugs will be available at the merchandise stand. The PartyPlug earplugs are reusable so that you can protect your ears not only at DGTL but at other festivals as well. Love your ears!
CAN I BUY CIGARETTES?
Cigarettes will not be sold.
HOW TO GET THERE
From Amsterdam Central Station, you can easily take the ferry to NDSM. We will provide extra ferries, besides the regular schedule, to the festival from Amsterdam Central Station. The festival ferry will depart from the regular ferry platform directly behind Amsterdam Central Station. The ferries sail during the day, but also at night. You can check all the departure times live at https://pontveer.nl/, please do so before planning your trip.
From Amsterdam Central Station to the NDSM the sailing time is about fifteen minutes, and from the ferry it’s about a five-minute walk to the NDSM warehouse. The saling time from Amsterdam Central Station to Buiksloterweg is 5 minutes, and from the ferry it’s a 10 minute bike ride to the NDSM Warehouse.
Please be advised that waiting times might increase during peak hours, especially after the event ends. If you need to catch the last train home, be sure to take this into account.
We recommend you to travel to the NDSM Docklands by bicycle. We advise you to take the ferry from Amsterdam Central station to ‘Buiksloterweg’ and cycle from there, or take the ferry from Pontsteiger to ‘Distelweg’ and then cycle from there. Note that bicycles are not allowed on the ferry towards central station from the NDSM. We’ve made sure there are designated areas to park your bike. Please listen to the instructions of our crew on site.
We don’t recommend travelling to the event by car, as it’s not sustainable, and there will be no dedicated parking spaces for DGTL visitors available.
Uber / Kiss & ride
Are you taking an Uber, or is somebody dropping you off at the event site? The Uber drop off is at Ms. Tarnweg, and the kiss & ride drop off is at Tt. Vasumweg.
There will also be signs and traffic control to direct you to the right place. The on-site crew will ensure everyone can get off in a safe and organised fashion.
If you take a taxi instead of an Uber, you can go to the crossroad between the NDSM-straat and Ms. van Riemsdijkweg. If you want to take a taxi home, this is also where you must go.
DGTL IS CASHLESS
- No more tokens
- Pay with your debit or credit card
- Pay with your smartphone with Appe Pay
Please note: There will be top-up stations on the festival site where you can exchange your cash for a DGTL card to pay with.
DGTL FESTIVAL ETHICS
Our mission is to provide a safe and enjoyable festival experience, and to positively impact the music industry. All of this, however, is not possible unless we create a environment that is safe and welcoming to all.
While on location at the Docklands, you’ll find members of our Awareness Crew walking around. You can also at any time reach out to our team leads and security personnel. We want to emphasize that nobody is allowed to occupy a space, mind, or body that has not been mutually agreed upon.
At DGTL, we believe in:
- A dancefloor for all
- A place to feel comfortable and free
- Exploring a curiosity for electronic music, art and culture
- A sustainable future
A safer dancefloor is a collective effort. Help us create an environment free from harassment, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and sexism. DGTL does not endorse or condone the use of illegal substances.
Social & collective responsibility
By entering our grounds, you agree to work towards the collective goal of creating safe(r) dancefloors for everyone. We strive for a festival experience in which we all, the visitors and organization keep each other accountable for our words and actions. We do not condone any form of verbal or physical harassment.
Harassment can be defined as words or actions that can come across as intimidating, confrontational or abusive to another person. Keep in mind that what someone else considered harassment may not be considered harassment by you.
We are committed to enabling consent culture throughout DGTL Amsterdam. Consent is about respecting a person’s decisions and autonomy of their own body. It is obtained when the other party says an enthusiastic and conscious “Yes”, not when someone doesn’t say “No”. Consent is a mutual and ongoing dialogue, and can be withdrawn at any stage.
Responsible and safe celebration
We have the freedom to make our own decisions as adults. We therefore expect our visitors to be conscious and responsible when entering our festival grounds. An amazing festival starts with taking the necessary precautions. When in doubt, less is always more.
Keep in mind that only you should have the say over what goes into your body; peer pressure is challenging to overcome. Additionally, don’t forget to regularly check up on your friends & other people around you. Make sure to drink enough water, but not too much – about 1 glass water per hour. Not feeling well? Please keep in mind that our awareness team and first aid is always here to help you, our visitor.
I am a journalist and would like to cover DGTL Amsterdam.

There is a disabled access platform available. Please contact us at email@example.com
PROTECT YOUR BELONGINGS, BE AWARE OF PICKPOCKETS
Keep Your Valuables Close: Whether it’s your phone, wallet, or passport, always keep your valuables in zippered pockets or bags, and ensure they are within your line of sight.
Use Lockers: take advantage of them to store your valuables securely when you’re not using them.

- I love my ears
- Take a break to cool and chill
- Know your limits and respect those of others
- Enjoy safe sex without regrets
- Security & crew will keep you safe
- The first aid team is your friend
- Get home safe: grab a ride
- Love your body: take time to recover
