Food court

This year you can find an extensive range of food at Lente Kabinet in our food court. A completely vegetarian menu since the first edition, but moving forward it's also completely circular. You can read about what that means and what you can eat at Lente Kabinet Festival in this blog.

We find it important that Het Twiske remains green and clean. As much waste as possible and all leftovers from our food court are immediately converted into reusable raw materials during the festival. In addition, you will find a wide range of future-proof dishes at our food court: think of seasonal dishes with climate-friendly ingredients and the shortest possible supply chains.

Last but not least: this year Europizza provides an extensive three-course menu with snacks and natural wine package for you and your friends. There are still a few spots left.

Besides music, there is much more to experience at Lente Kabinet 2022: with love and attention we have also put together an art and culture program for you for this edition.

In the Dome, we have bundled many of these installations under a dome in which you can get lost in art. The mystique of G, a live discussion about fast music by Bakkie Bakkie, the abstract architecture of Children of The Light, the interactive art of Elsemarijn Bruys and much, much more come together in this exciting space.

The second day of Lente Kabinet Festival is about to kick off

After a first day full of British back-to-backs, mesmerizing live shows and a real Bubblin' revival, Lente Kabinet is back for another day that is packed with unique grooves, live performances and other beautiful things. Here’s what you should not miss.

The Tweede Kamer opens with hidden gems from Chicago House, Indonesian funk and jazzy house by Sekan, who with his Jiwa Jiwa label brings faded, forgotten or suppressed Indonesian history back to light through music and narratives.

Afterwards you can dance in the Derde Kamer to live sets by Meetsysteem and Otim Alpha: the first effortlessly blends indie, electro and spoken word with hints of the club. Otim Alpha serves traditional Ugandan wedding music with an electronic twist, which earned him a signing at Nyege Nyege. Complete with live band, grooves and mesmerizing rhythms, this is the treat that will set you up for the evening sets we have planned.

For example, on the Eerste Kamer stage, OR:LA, will provide us with dubby classics blended into disco or even rave. Or take a look at our Vierde Kamer, where the Egyptian ZULI will give a masterclass mix with his distorted breakbeat, jungle and trap.

The evening will be concluded on this stage by DJ Marcelle, the punk-prominence from Maastricht, who has been making crowds spin, mosh and dance for decades with a growing record collection (the counter is now at 20,000!). An enchanting end to the return of Lente Kabinet by one of the most intriguing underground talents in our country.

If you have lost the overview; no stress, you will find a handy timetable plus map and all the information you need on our app, which you can download via this link. For now we can only wish you a thrilling last Lente Kabinet day. See you there?

Extra information for today

It feels so surreal to welcome you again in Het Twiske after three long years. Our first day was one for the books, and we are ready to welcome you again from 1:00 PM!

In addition, we would like to update you on today's weather: we expect rain showers in the evening hours, but since the weather forecasts are constantly changing, so we will keep you informed of developments in the coming hours. We therefore recommend that you keep an eye on our socials, website and app (download it here).

In any case, bring a waterproof jacket and/or something warm. We have also taken extra measures on the site: the Tweede Kamer and the Derde Kamer are completely covered, and the Vierde Kamer and the food court are now also partially covered. In addition, we have free ponchos available at all bars. We would like to ask you to return it to the bars or take it home - this way we keep Het Twiske free of waste.

Last but not least: the shuttle buses for today are sold out, so we recommend that you choose an alternative way of traveling and come by taxi or bicycle, for example. We also have a very small batch of 200 tickets available at the door, so come early.

See you later!

Collaboration with Patta

We are working closely together with our friends from Patta again this year. Not just in the form you'd usually expect, but that doesn't make our collab any less surprising: we're proud of the joint stage we're creating with Patta Soundsystem. Here you will hear emerging talent, representing the sound of the capital and the future throughout the weekend.

On Saturday you will find, among other things, the groovy selections of the Rotterdam-based Charmaine, who, as one of the regular faces of Clone, sees all new records pass the counter. With a mix of jazz funk, boogie, soul and Detroit sounds, Charmaine's appearance at Lente Kabinet Festival is an exceptionally inspired one. Bao G will also be there on Saturday, to represent the capital with a trap-packed set rich in high snares and menacing bass synths. Turn-up guaranteed! A little later we stay in similar territories with a live performance courtesy of a member of the Burning Fik family: Kleine Crack. Armed with Flemish accents, manic bars and nods to metal, techno and screamo, this is one not to be missed.

After Patta-head honcho DJ Edzon personally closes the stage on Saturday, Patta Soundsystem returns on early Sunday with brooding roots reggae and dubby sounds, to please the weather gods. The grand finale on this second day is in the hands of London foodies/connectors Steven Julien & Shy One, who mix breaks with electro, Detroit techno and soulful goodies from their record bags. Then the closing service is for the New Zealand rising star Half Queen, who effortlessly blends reggaeton and twerkhall with zeroes synths and future-oriented sounds. Don't say we didn't inform you, because we expect the highlights to happen here this weekend.

SexMatters & Lente Kabinet introduce our code of conduct and Social Safety Team

At Lente Kabinet Festival, we think it is very important that everyone feels welcome and (socially) safe. That's why we do our best to make the festival as harassment-free as possible for everyone - regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, physical ability, appearance, ethnicity, socio-cultural background, religion or other group identity.

Which is why we are introducing our code of conduct and our collaboration with the SexMatters Foundation this year. SexMatters supports us through a Social Safety Team that works with a confidential advisor and observation team that walks around the site. During the festival, we have a collective responsibility, so we also need your help to ensure the safety of everyone and yourself. If you see or hear about undesirable behaviour, or if you experience something yourself, you can find our Social Safety Team in the tent near the Derde Kamer. You can also file a complaint or report an incident afterwards via: [email protected]
