So what is Best Kept Secret exactly? Or is that a secret?

Best Kept Secret is a three day music festival in Hilvarenbeek. This year the festival will be organised for the sixth time.

At Best Kept Secret, we program artists we – as fans of music – would like to see live, preferably in front of a larger audience than said artists are used to. By doing so, we don’t think in genres or stylistics. Whether it’s indie rock, hip hop, electronic music: as long as we dig it, it deserves a slot at our festival. With over a hundred artists, bands and DJs performing at Best Kept Secret perennially, there’s plenty of stuff to discover.

To make the experience that much more fulfilling, we take great pride in making the festival site as beautiful and practical as possible. Best Kept Secret exhibits and utilizes the gorgeous woodland area surrounding safari park Beekse Bergen, with a beautiful lakeside to boot. Our open air main stage ONE can be found right at the beach. The additional stages are sheltered by the bordering woodlands. If you follow the hubbub through the woods, you’ll eventually find your way to FOUR, better known as the DJ-stage. Over here, our host St, Paul stands behind the turntables to share his love and enthusiasm for music, along with an assembly of guest DJs and heads.

Camping is another integral part of Best Kept Secret. You can sleep on the natural campsite, rent a cosy bungalow or stay inside a log cabin at the bungalow park. Not only does Best Kept Secret deliver diversity and balance in its programming and facilities, there’s also a strong emphasis on providing good, sustainable food and drinks.

Best Kept Secret is all about giving you and your friends the opportunity to shape your own festival experience. Take your chums to an area where only the loudest and darkest music will be played, grab the mic to sing karaoke, challenge your friends to a video game or sit down at our long table. And most importantly, enjoy this weekend of great music and exciting performances with us!
