DGTL, the global titan of electronic music festivals, has officially declared its US footprint. The renowned Amsterdam-born festival is set to make its American debut with back-to-back editions in New York City on December 1st and Los Angeles on December 2nd. The events are a collaboration with two powerhouse underground event collectives: NYC’s Teksupport and LA’s Stranger Than.
Since its inception in 2013, DGTL has been at the forefront of merging groundbreaking stage design with avant-garde production to curate unparalleled electronic experiences. With its roots in Amsterdam, the festival’s footprint has sprawled across major cities like Barcelona, Mumbai, São Paulo, and now, the USA. DGTL’s commitment to curating diverse and inclusive dancefloors, coupled with its innovative approach to lineup selection, has solidified its reputation as a cornerstone in the electronic music world.
The US editions promise an electrifying mix of global talent. Headlining the event is the Danish trio WhoMadeWho with their groundbreaking live show. The ensemble’s performance will showcase an inflatable sphere, projecting 3D visuals crafted in partnership with design magnates like the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). Following the release of their critically acclaimed album “UUUU”, WhoMadeWho is set to envelop attendees in the emotive essence of their music.

But the sonic journey doesn’t stop there. German deep house maestro Henrik Schwarz will take the stage, known for his unique synthesis of classical and jazz elements into electronic performances. Schwarz, who has created remixes for legendary acts like Coldplay and Michael Jackson, will perform b2b with the Maeve label’s head honcho, Mano Le Tough. Rising from Ireland, Le Tough’s debut album “Changing Days” – a harmonious fusion of modern disco and atmospheric house – had firmly established his reputation in the electronic music arena.
