Caught between water and land, between the brick warehouses and slipways. The old iron and concrete of the Dockyard radiates a sturdy yet derelict character; raw and full of energy. DOCKYARD FESTIVAL springs from the seeds spread from the surrounding ageing materials that express the Netherland’s industrial heritage. The sawing, drilling and hammering of the past are replaced with the beats of the DJs that punch through the air this coming ADE. The sound of ships sledded from the slopes under loud cheering now become music and cheering voices of the audience as they dance and become a part of Dockyard’s futuristic dystopia.
