Dockyard Festival 2021

Caught between land and water, Dockyard radiates a sturdy yet derelict character- raw and full of energy. An industrial conflagration of techno, tech-house, and house music rumbling over the horizon, settling in 2021 again on the Havenpark in Amsterdam.

After a year of respite, a ray of hope breaks through the clouds. We turn our music-hungry faces towards Amsterdam Dance Event in October of 2021, eager for the excitement of the crowd and the beating of the bass; the electric tingle down your spine as the high-hat raps, the drums that boom, and a resounding clap!

In 2021 Dockyard Festival ADE joins forces once again with her sister, Mystic Garden Festival, in an unprecedented marriage of dark and light; industrial v.s. fairyland! Join Dockyard’s brazen dystopia and wander through Mystic Garden's enchanted realm all in the same day!

It's been over a year since we've been able to come together at a proper dance festival, and we understand that our guests are anxious to procure tickets to our events. We expect to sell out even more quickly this year due to the high anticipation of Dockyard Festival, so we are recommending that guests register to be the first to know about ticket availability and special deals.
