Event Details

The second edition of Shadowfall Festival brings together numerous acts from the Dutch underground wave, EBM and post-punk scene. The event represents an opportunity for showcasing a diverse range of artistic expressions and exploring the ways in which art can be used to express fascination with despair and disillusionment. Established and up-and-coming artists will come together in celebration of the darker, more introspective side of alternative music. DJ Dragnet and duo Reverend Esser will ensure that this band event swiftly transitions into a dance party lasting until the late hours – a feast for the creatures of the night.


The interstellar cosmonauts of Staatseinde landed their spaceship in 2006 to bring their sound, described as ‘Neue-Niederländische-Welle’, to Earth. The result is a theatrical mix of pulsating electro with nostalgic hopeful synthlines, performed live with synthesisers, a sequencer and tantalising vocals.

Formed in the back seat of an Amsterdam streetcar, this platonic trio combines razor-sharp visuals with an exciting, contemporary take on dark music. IDLΞYES was formed when LAMIA.NN and ARTEMIS decided to work together out of a shared love of the alternative scenes of Japan and London, and guitarist H!D added his flamboyant L.A. influences. The result is a mix of goth, trip hop, industrial and glam: intense, dark, and always danceable.
