Decibel outdoor is the loudest festival on earth. Since 2002, it has been one of the biggest and most popular festivals within the harder styles scene. As of 2019, the annual event grew from one to three days on the most beautiful festival grounds The Netherlands has to offer. This is the place where music lovers with a passion for the harder styles come together. This is the city that offers everything you need. Make the most of your three full days on the festival terrain and explore musical experiences with over 300 artists divided among 30 different areas. Besides that, almost every stage changes genres each day. This means you can experience the epic festival terrain in the best way possible.
This city is your home. The city that never sleeps, but keeps on going! Besides the three festival days filled with musical madness, the party at the campsite never stops. The Decibel outdoor weekend has become a true phenomenon. Enjoy the famous camping vibe with all its secret activities, surprising pop-up parties and an overdose of unexpected craziness.
