Weekend

From June 3rd until 5th The Hague will be covered in pink for The Crave Festival 2022. The weekend consists of the main festival in Zuiderpark on Saturday with 4+ stages and 30+ artists. On Friday we kick of the weekend with a concert in Paard van Troje in the city center. On Saturday dancing continues during the After Hours at the PIP and Paard van Troje. The weekend is closed with a beach concert at The Hague Beach.

Stages

Main Stage

Our main area will serve as the stage to a full blown techno assault. Here is where our roots are and where they’ll continue to grow deeper through profound electronic rhythms every year. Expect an atmospheric trip that will travel through futuristic and melancholic themes, a musical journey which will ultimately reach its final destination: euphoria.

Resident Advisor

This year we’re honored to welcome Resident Advisor, the globally recognized electronic music platform, to The Hague. RA will be hosting an intimate stage that is built to complement the interaction between the artist and its dancers, all while aiming for a state of perfect dance floor synergy. Musically this collaboration will present a wide array of exciting electronic music through a selection of today’s most appealing artists – a true delicacy to those with curious ears.

Inter Galactic FM

The Hague has been establishing a reputation as our country’s most prominent pop city for years. All while building a legacy below surface that is at the very least equally impressing, also known as the West Coast Sound. A typical electro sound that has stood the test of time while dominating dancefloors all over the globe. It’s no wonder that you can find “West Coast” labeled record crates from here to San Francisco. A gathering of three generations. A blend of the past and the present.

PIP Den Haag

PIP is undoubtedly the finest place The Hague has to offer. A place where boundaries don’t exist and new exciting initiatives are born. A place where upcoming talent gets a chance to flourish into something bigger. A place where like-minded people who’re looking for nighttime diversions can gather. The place where it all started for us.
