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.

HÖR Berlin

Beamed on millions of screens in living rooms around the world, HÖR Berlin’s iconic neon-lit bathroom live streams offer a portal by which shared music moments could transcend dancefloors and the confines of four walls. The independent streaming platform will step off their famous bathroom podium for a day to host The Crave’s fifth stage. A convergence of the physical and virtual, this collaboration will feature an adventurous roster that celebrates the outsiders as new, meaningful ways of collective music discovery get reimagined.

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.

      You’ll be able to download your ticket(s) one day before the festival. If you’ve purchased tickets for your entire group of friends, you’ll be able to assign the tickets or send them to your friends on the same date.

  • Celebrate Safe

    • What is Celebrate Safe?

      Celebrate Safe is a platform with tips and reliable information about conscious and safe partying. The campaign was set up by more than 100 club owners and organizers to point out the risks related to going out (such as alcohol, drugs, but also hearing damage and unsafe sec) to visitors to events and clubs in an accessible way. Check out the ten points beneath to prepare yourself in a safe way. Don’t forget we have a zero-tolerance policy at The Crave Festival, see the rules of conduct for more information.

      For more information about the Celebrate Safe campaign, check out https://celebratesafe.nl/

    • Think for yourself, care about others

      To plan is to spoil yourself. For some, anticipation is just as important as the moment itself. Which party are you going to and with whom? What are you wearing? How do you get there? You can also think about whether you want to use alcohol or other drugs. And check with your friends what they are up to. Then you know what to do if something goes wrong.

      Be kind to yourself and the people around you. If everyone pays attention to each other, everyone will have a good time. Do you see someone not feeling okay? Wait for a while until someone from the crew or the emergency room is there. If you agree on a meeting point at the party, you can find each other if your phone no longer works.

      Better safe than sorry. Celebrate safe!

    • Using alcohol or other drugs is never without risk

      There are always risks associated with the use of alcohol and other drugs. It makes little difference whether you do it for the first time or have done it before. Each remedy has a different effect. Its effect depends on what you take, where you take it, how much you take and how your body reacts to it.

      Don’t forget we have a zero-tolerance policy at The Crave Festival. For more information, see the rules of conduct.

    • I love my ears

      A party without music is like coke without sparkles. And because you want to enjoy your favorite music for as long as possible, it is wise to be careful with your ears. Three tips:

      1. Listen as safely as possible; see where you can enjoy the best and still keep enough distance from the boxes. Standing too close can harm your ears.
      2. Wear those caps! At sound pressures higher than 80 dB it is wise to use earplugs. This way you can still hear the music well, you can communicate more easily with your friends and you protect your hearing.
      3. Give your ears some rest every now and then. Every now and then, find a quiet place to give your ears a ‘break’. This way they can relax for a while so that you can enjoy your favorite music for longer.

      For more information check http://ilovemyears.nl/

    • Take a break to cool and chill

      Even if you still seem to have endless energy, it’s smart to take a break every now and then. Stop dancing and go to a quiet place to chill, have a drink or eat. Even if you feel good, such a break is a good idea. Because sometimes you only feel afterwards how warm or tired you are. Find a cool spot in the club or in the shade of a festival tent. Is it winter? Do not go outside, but find a place inside.

    • Know your limits and respect those of others

      What is the start of a nice flirt for one person, may be just a step too far for another. Harassing someone is never okay! Do you suspect someone is being harassed? Check whether the person is okay or give the security a signal.

      No is no. Respect each other’s boundaries. Don’t try to persuade others to do something they don’t want to do. Do you doubt whether the other person is still having fun? Ask or stop what you are doing. And you don’t have to be persuaded to do something you don’t want to. Stay true to yourself and listen to your gut.

      Whether it concerns the use of alcohol or other drugs, a flirt, or going home at a certain time: celebrate life, but with respect for each other’s boundaries.

    • Enjoy safe sex without regrets

      Partying is, besides dancing, also nice flirting. But avoid regrets afterwards. Indicate what you want. Does the other want something that you don’t feel like? Maybe you’re not such a good match after all. You don’t have to be fooled and you can always change your mind!

      Everyone has a different limit for what behavior they find desirable or undesirable. Is one person okay with being kissed by a stranger? No one else is waiting for that at all. It is not always so clear where that limit lies. So check if the other person likes it as much as you do, with the simple question: Are you okay?

      And if that happens, use condoms. They protect you against STDs, HIV, and unwanted pregnancies.

    • Security & crew will keep you safe

      The crew of the party or club is there for your safety and that of others. So if you are harassed, there is an argument, do you not feel well or do you see that things are not going well with someone else? Then warn security or someone from the organization. They can call the emergency room, address a difficult visitor or evict them. If you don’t feel well, you can of course go to the emergency room yourself. Even though the security is sometimes strict and even if someone from the crew seems very busy, they are there to help you if you need it.

    • The first aid team is your friend

      Are you not feeling well, or are you unsure whether you are doing well? Or is one of your friends not doing well? Go to the emergency room. They will help you.

      You can always knock on the door of the emergency room. For a band-aid because you have a blister or paracetamol. And they also help you if you don’t feel well after using alcohol or other drugs.

      What happens in the first aid, stays in the first aid. Everything you discuss or happen there is confidential. So you can tell the first aid crew what you’ve been drinking or taking. Then they can help you better.

      If you are unable to go to the emergency room yourself, ask the security or crew to call them. Do you see someone else not feeling well? Do not leave him or her alone and wait for help to arrive.

    • Get home safe: grab a ride

      Before you go to a party or festival, it is smart to think about how to get home safely. Are you taking the taxi? Is there a Bob? Do you take the shuttle bus? Check with your friends what they are up to.

      If you’ve taken alcohol or other drugs, you may think you’re fit enough to drive, but you’re not. You often don’t feel it, but under the influence, you react much less quickly than when you are sober. Fatigue is also a problem.

      Energy drinks, coffee, and other stimulants won’t help you get sober and fit again. So… let yourself be taken home, whether that is by taxi, car, bus, tram, or train. Are you going by car? Then agree in advance who the Bob is. Only get in if your driver is sober and let your Bob drive focused. Hands above the seat belts.
