HART is the first crowdfunded electronic music festival in the world. We offer you an 18-hour rave with the most exciting house and techno artists around, which grows organically with the amount of backers. Support us from the start and get in for 22 euro. Do you want more than just a ticket? Join Hartcore and shape the festival yourself. If enough people support us, we can raise the money to make this happen. And if we don't, you get your money back.

No risk. Just quality.

Our line up will bring genre-defining pioneers head-to-head with mind-bending new labels, at a party where quality reigns supreme and time is limitless.

If we gather our funding goal of 30.000 € (~1000 people), HART is born. This means ICC before 6 a.m. and Decadance and Niche Club after 6 a.m. ICC will have two rooms, one for house and one for techno. However, if we reach our stretch goal of 65.000 € (~2000 people), we open the beautiful and atmospheric "Banketzaal" in ICC. This room demands special artists, so we tried to put people here who play a pivotal role in the most exciting small labels around, shaping the sound of the future.

Admission to ICC  

All regular tickets get access to ICC. First 500 tickets at 22 euro, the next 2500 at 27 euro. After the Kickstarter, the price will be 35 euro.

Admission to Decadance and Niche Club

From FULL REGULAR tickets onwards, you also get admission to both Decadance and Niche Club. If we sell out these tickets, there will be no more after the Kickstarter.

Admission to the launch event

On 29/04 we will throw a launch event in Decadance. The lineup of this launch event will be determined by HARTcore Members. After the Kickstarter, entree will be 7 euro for this party.

HARTcore Member

  • Determine the full lineup of the launch event, including 1 international headliner and 3 locals (budget 1500 euro). 
  • Be one of the few to join dinner with an artist on our lineup. (depending on artist availability)

At HART we are giving both international artists and local legends a stage. Here is what some of them have to say about HART:

Crowdfunding makes it possible to start a festival without big investments. If enough people pledge money to us within one month time, we can make it happen. This means you don’t actually pay: the money is simply blocked on your creditcard and if we can reach 30,000 euro this way, HART is born! Only then is the money withdrawn from your bank account and transferred to us and we have the necessary funds to start throwing the festival! In return you get a ticket at the lowest price we can possibly make it work for. Sounds like a win-win!

HART takes place at the ICC until 6 a.m. There are two rooms: one for house and one for techno. If we reach our stretch goal we open a third room. After 6, we continue in Decadance and Niche Club, only 300 meters away from ICC.

HART is being organised by 5 young techno and house fans with experience in organizing events.

Risks and challenges

One of the challenges of this project is to make sure the lineup and venues are taken care of before the Kickstarter project starts. We want to deliver the quality we promise. To obtain this, we did a lot of preparatory work to guarantee that every name on the lineup will definitely come if this project gets funded.
