In the weekend of 5 till 7 June it’s finally time for The Crave Festival. The main event will traditionally take place in the enchanting vegetation of The Hague’s Zuiderpark, while the weekend program spreads across several venues in the city. This year’s Zuiderpark event covers the ground of our city centre’s woodland with 4 different stages – all filled with today’s most appealing artists. Brace yourself for a trip through the versatile world of electronic music: more info about the weekend program will follow soon.
Leon Vynehall - I-F - Legowelt live - E.R.P / Convextion live - Or:la - Aleksi Perälä - David Vunk - Deniro - Stranger - BAD NEWS live - Awesome Tapes From Africa - Lena Willikens - Vladimir Ivkovic - Mama Snake - Orpheu The Wizard - Mim Suleiman - Paula Tape - Radical Hi-fi - Zohar - Ben Buitendijk - Van Anh - Urban Space Electronics
Our main area will serve as the stage to a full blown techno assault. Here is where our roots are and where they’ll continue to grow deeper through profound electronic rhythms every year. Expect an atmospheric trip that will travel through futuristic and melancholic themes, a musical journey which will ultimately reach its final destination: euphoria.
Again this year we welcome our friends of Resident advisor, the globally recognised electronic music platform. RA wil host an intimate stage that gets a complete redesign and new location. Musically this collaboration will present a wide array of exciting electronic music through a selection of today’s most appealing artists – a true delicacy to those with curious ears.
The Hague has been establishing a reputation as our country’s most prominent pop city for years. All while building a legacy below surface that is at the very least equally impressing, also known as the West Coast Sound. A typical electro sound that has stood the test of time while dominating dancefloors all over the globe. It’s no wonder that you can find “West Coast” labeled record crates from here to San Francisco. A gathering of three generations. A blend of the past and the present. As much on the dance floor as it is on stage.
The fourth stage is all about the sunny disco vibes presented by our all time partner in crime, PIP. This local gem of a club has always been an important factor for The Crave. Not just because PIP was The Crave’s very first venue, but more importantly because it is a corner stone and breeding ground of The Hague’s new creative potential. Dust off your forgotten dance moves and gather for a slick mixture of house, disco, soul, techno and everything in between.
The main festival event will take place in The Hague’s iconic Zuiderpark. Next to our main festival event we will be presenting numerous side events and afterparties at different locations spread all over The Hague. More details on the weekend programme will be announced soon.

There will also be side events around our main festival event, these are spread over different locations in The Hague from Friday the 5th of June until Sunday the 7th of June. More details on the weekend programme will be announced soon.
