Welcome to the Future lineup and stages for 2019 edition

With its 8 stages and more than 50 artists, Welcome to the Future 2019 will be the biggest and greater edition ever.

Welcome to the Future has proudly presented the lineup and the stages for the 2019 edition of the festival.

Located in the beautiful frame of Het Twiske, just a few kilometers from Amsterdam, Welcome to the Future is one of the most dynamic underground and techno festival in the European region. The concept started in 1993 as a club night and over the years has grown more and more becoming one of the greatest festival destinations in Europe. Now Welcome to the Future features a lineup that features iconic artists as well as upcoming local talents.

The 2019 edition of Welcome to the Future will be bigger than ever. A new stage has been added, bringing to 8 the number of the stages. Each stage is conceptually unique, with a carefully selected sound and perfectly matched design.

The festival will run from 12 to 00 am, July the 20th, 2019, and will see more than 50 artists (full lineup below) spread on the eight stages.

Because music is the most important thing in a festival, at Welcome to the Future all of the stages are fully equipped with state of the art Funktion-One systems.


The festival will welcome Sven Väth and Joseph Capriati headline our Main stage. Both will be making their Welcome to the Future debut this summer! Next to them, Adriatique, Enzo Siragusa b2b Archie Hamilton will play at Welcome to the Future festival for the first time. Festival’s family member Ici Sans Merci is representing the local scene on the center stage.

Following the tradition, the festival’s biggest tent will be filled with top-notch Funktion one sound systems and trippy visuals. Sam Paganini, Dax J, and Rodhad are in charge of this Techno heaven, alongside with Matrixxman, Kobosil, Juan Sanchez and Tahko. Just imagine yourself dancing eyes closed to relentless, pure Techno, side by side with newly made friends.

Welcome to the Future father and founder Gert van Veen aka Quazar (live), Sandrien b2b Carlos Valdez and Times Are Ruff will be joining them to honor the stages’ name.


In the realms of the Aurora… Derrick May and Dj Rush will take over this new stage concept alongside with Fjaak (live), De Sluwe Vos, Steve Rachmad, Lewski, and Titia. Expect an inspiring outdoor space, feeling like a small party on its own, enriched with light effects following nature’s geometrical shapes.


Amsterdam is a stage that accompanies Welcome to the Future since the very first edition. It is dedicated to the hottest local talent and some of the best friends of the festival’s family: Detroit Swindle, Boris Werner, Ferro, Dorine Dorado, and Darling b2b Tracey. This season, Amsterdam will present itself outdoors, on a new location and in a new design. An absolute must on your timetable!


More hot Dutch sound will be provided by Secret Cinema, Bart Skills, Prunk & Chris Stussy, Samuel Deep and DJ Windows XP in our Salon. And, the boys invited ANNA to join the club! This floor is literally a living room and located on a grassy field near the waterside.


Tucked away between bushes, the Garden is intimate, natural and loaded with a deep, profound sound. The following artists will join forces to transform it into a magical space for unexpected encounters to occur: Lövestad, Frits Wenting, Daan Groeneveld, Spaceandtime and Pablo Discobar Soundsystem. Get in and get lost!
