ABOUT THE CRAVE FESTIVAL

The Hague’s musical lineage is legendary; it’s still infecting dance floors today. Punk powered the scene back in the early 90’s, and it’s the same DIY spirit which flows through The Crave. Inspired by the pioneers of our city like I-F (Intergalactic FM), Guy Tavares & Jan Duivenvoorden (Unit Moebius, Bunker Records) and DJ TLR (Creme Organization).

What started with an illegal rave for 100 friends is now becoming a movement and a lifestyle in The Hague, the region around The Hague (Rotterdam, Delft, Leiden) / national and also international. The Crave is getting more and more following.

The Crave Festival is bringing people, joy, happiness and unique experiences together. With a carefully curated music program, hand picked food in a thoughtfully designed and decorated festival area. We’ve put a new benchmark on the Dutch festival scene. We very much emphasise the equality of all people and want to create a festival with a great open-minded community spirit so that everyone can have a great time.
