Learn from my Mistakes with Duncan Stutterheim

Conference

Duncan Stutterheim

Duncan Stutterheim (Cultural Entrepreneur, NL)

Cultural entrepeneur Duncan Stutterheim is a major part (literally!) of the landscape of Amsterdam. Making his mark as the frontman of ID&T – the organization that fathered world-renowned events like Thunderdome, Mysteryland and Sensation – he sold his company for the biggest payoff in dance music history. He then invested most of his fortune and energy in cultural landmarks like Elementenstraat, the A’DAM Tower, and most recently Westergas – and has won several awards for his contributions to Dutch art, culture and economy.

Stutterheim found his calling during the early 90’s, in Amsterdam’s budding rave scene. He established ID&T with two friends, and they started organizing raves in expo halls and stadiums. Their chief event Thunderdome would become the great sanctuary for gabber, the largest grassroots youth culture in Dutch history. In the 00’s, ID&T’s reach became more international, thanks to organizing events like Innercity and Mysteryland, and co-founding Tomorrowland. But Sensation was their most legendary party, touring the world for many years, and attracting over 2 million visitors in 35 countries. In this talk Stutterheim will tell you all about his fascinating life - and crucially, this will not be to talk about his successes, but his failures, struggles and bumpy roads he’s traversed as an entrepreneur and how they helped him, and can help you, learn to do better business.
