We return to our beloved NDSM Docklands (NDSM-Plein 28, 1033 WB Amsterdam)


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. Do I need a ticket for the Amsterdam ferry? No, the ferries are FREE, and you can hop on board as soon as the arriving passengers have come off.

Please be advised that waiting times might increase during peak hours, especially after the festival ends. If you need to catch the last train home, be sure to take this into account. The festival ferry will be available until everyone has left our grounds.

If you attend the night program, the ferry from the NDSM is available until 03:00, afterwards, you can take the ferry back from ‘Buiksloterweg’ to Amsterdam Central station.

On Friday: Take the NDSM ferry from Amsterdam Central Station, and follow the DGTL signs to the entrance at the NDSM Loods. The ferry from the NDSM is available until 03:00, afterwards, you can take the ferry back from ‘Buiksloterweg’ to Amsterdam Central station.

We recommend you to travel to our festival grounds by bicycle. You can take the ferry from either ‘Buiksloterweg’ and cycle to the festival from there. Or you can cycle to ‘Pontsteiger Houthavens’, and park your bike there and take the ferry. You can follow the signs to the festival. We will place a sufficient amount of bike racks close to the festival grounds. Please listen to the instructions of our crew on site.

It’s also possible to cycle to Amsterdam Central station, park your bike, and take the ‘festival’ ferry. Please be advised that it’s not allowed to bring your bike on the festival ferry.

Uber / Kiss & ride
Are you taking an Uber, or is somebody dropping you off at the festival site? You can set your navigation for ‘T.t. 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 (preferably electric) taxi instead of an Uber, you can go to ‘Mt. Tarnweg’. Use ‘Mt. Tarnweg’ for your pick-up point on your way back home aswell.

By car
We don’t recommend travelling to the festival by car, as it’s not sustainable and there will be no dedicated parking spaces for DGTL visitors available.


At DGTL, we are highly aware of our environmental impacts. All year round, DGTL searches for the latest technological breakthroughs to close material loops. DGTL is a living lab for future city innovations, leaving behind a structural trace. If you want to join us in our mission for a better world, you can compensate for your means of travel to the festival by clicking here.


We care deeply for our planet, and therefore, DGTL aims to have zero waste. We kindly ask you to join our mission and therefore don’t bring any single-use items to the festival, such as balloons, flags, inflatable items etc.


  • 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.


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 festival environment that is safe and welcoming to all. 

While on location at the festival, 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.

DGTL strives to make its events accessible to all visitors with a disability. Our festival grounds are equipped with wheelchair access in all areas. For special requests, please contact hello@dgtl.nl.


There will be free tap water in all toilet areas.


We have a zero-tolerance policy towards hard drugs.


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 festival, 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!


Please always refer to our house rules.
