It was only a matter of time before techno festival DGTL conquered the Dutch techno scene. With over 40,000 people coming to the Amsterdam annual edition of DGTL and artists performing like Henrik Schwartz, Maceo Plex, Âme, Sandrien, Speedy J, Black Coffee, Mathew Jonson, the festival has now also won over Barcelona and São Paulo.
For the 2017 edition, Nachtlab Agency designed the DGTL main stage, expressing the overarching theme ‘Modularity.’ Inspired by the DGTL Morse code logo, this design has resulted in a playful, asymmetrical stage. Its interactive light and custom made mirror components will be shipped to Barcelona en Sao Paulo, where the stage will be given a new layout.
The stage design holds up to 5,000 visitors and was created from scratch, using sketches, 3D visualization, and light design. Among the first DJs bringing the stage to life in Amsterdam last Easter weekend were Adriatique, De Sluwe Vos, Ferro, Jamie Jones, Tiga, Tom Trago, Black Coffee, DJ Koze, Mind Against, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Reza Athar and Talaboman.
The Nachtlab Agency crew is proud to be part of this incredible festival. We want to thank our friends from DGTL again for this year’s collaboration!
