18HRS Festival 2015

Ever wondered your way round a festival and never wanted it to end – or even worse, to already think of a suitable after party? As of now, there’s no need: 18hrs Festival will do both.
On the 11th of July, 18hrs Festival will celebrate it’s 5-year anniversary. Embedded as the longest standing festival in terms of duration, 18hrs Festival will take place at the ‘Balkenhaven-terrein’ in Zaandam. In just under 10 minutes distance from Amsterdam, you can enjoy the vast array of techno, deep- and tech house infused beats 18 hours long until the break of dawn.
Situated on the banks of the North Sea Channel, 18hrs Festival will feature an outdoor stage which will be open until 11pm and an indoor warehouse blasting music until 6am. As we celebrate 18hrs’ 5-year existence, the Festival will be host to some exclusive and high profile stages including the following:
Terminal M
Presented by the iconic ‘queen of techno’, Berlin Monika Kruse’ her label ‘Terminal M’ will be domain to a large host of international guests.
Taking over the indoor main room at 18hrs Festival, the Spanish club brand ‘Elrow’ fill the atmosphere with confetti, heavy based techno and incredible themes accompanied by fancy dress play-acting on a scale unlike any other. Though it’s Elrow’s third year in a row at 18hrs Festival, the ridiculousness and experience makes no sense and is hard to describe – we love it.
Initiated by Wouter S, 44BASS is a concept filled with UK Bass, UK House and UK Garage and all sounds they fell in love with.
Joey Daniel Pres. 300mph
