The Dutch festival heads to De Vasim, in Nijmegen, on 8-9 June 2019.

Some rather intriguing sounds have been pumping out of the Dutch countryside as of late. More specifically, the Willem Twee Studios in Den Bosch where, in the run up to Drift Festival, Blawan and British Murder Boys have been invited to spend a week inside.

Jameszoo, who’s currently based in Den Bosch and has strong connections with the studio, has also spent a week working on a composition in the creative space. The culmination of all three sessions will be premiered at Drift Festival’s opening concert at the Stadsschouwburg de Vereeniging in Nijmegen.

The old studio space has been kitted out with musical hardware dating back to the 50s. This remarkable time capsule of electronic music has recently been used by a host of artists, from Inga Copeland and Helena Hauff to Daedelus and Alva Noto.

Entry into the festival is free for weekend ticket holders or can be purchased for €10. Head to Drift’s website for more information.
