Best Kept Secret is a three-day music festival in Hilvarenbeek, The Netherlands. In 2019, the festival 7th edition will take place on May 31st, June 1st and June 2nd.
Best Kept Secret wants to bring you some great music. We don’t think only in terms of genres or styles, but simply care about bringing you the artists you would like to see live, regardless if they make indie rock, hip-hop, or electronic music.
What makes this festival so special? Well, it’s the combination of great music being played in a unique and intimate environment! The festival is held around (not in!) the amazing Safari Park of Beekse Bergen, with stages scattered around and, in the woodlands. The open air main stage ONE, can be found right on the beach of a boating lake. As a visitor you can sleep on the on-site natural camping, rent a cosy bungalow or stay in 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 delicious and sustainable food and drinks.
Best Kept Secret is all about giving you and your friends the opportunity to create your own festival experience. Most importantly, enjoy a weekend of great music and exciting performances with us!
The 7th edition of Best Kept Secret will be held on May 31st – June 2nd 2019 at Beekse Bergen in Hilvarenbeek, The Netherlands.
At Best Kept Secret everyone is welcome. Young or old – everyone is welcome to enjoy the festival.
Do, however, keep in mind that there are no special baby/child facilities available at the festival – nor do we provide special discounts for kids. If you are under the age of 16, you will need to be accompanied by an adult.
That’ll be our head-programmer Roel Coppen. Every year, together with his collegue Marco Muhring, he tireless skids between clubs, festivals, record stores and music sites to surprise us all.
Robert Adriaansen of Loudmouth has been our guy from the get-go. Posters, wristbands, parking stickers: it all has his fingerprints on it. Well, not literally of course, but you get the idea.
