For more than thirty years, electronic music has grown from a sub-genre into one of the most popular music genres in the world, with ID&T as its first pioneer.
In the early 1990s, after the electronic music phenomenon exploded across Europe, Dutch dance culture was already on a steady rise. The demand for these events were rapidly growing on a vast scale, with young entrepreneurs generating fresh ideas to explore unknown territory and broaden the horizon of dance music culture. Three young friends under the initials of ID&T (Irfan van Ewijk, Duncan Stutterheim, and Theo Lelie) decided it was time to put their dream into action. In 1992, they organized their first large-scale event called ‘The Final Exam’, named after the school final exams the week prior. With more than 10,000 people in attendance, the three friends began their first steps in the remarkable journey of ID&T. From throwing small parties in the Netherlands, the founders of ID&T built a legacy, which stands today as the world’s pioneering electronic music entertainment company.
ID&T is now known for organizing the world’s biggest electronic music festivals such as Mysteryland, Sensation, Thunderdome, Tomorrowland, Amsterdam Music Festival, Trance Energy, Welcome to the Future, Amsterdam Open Air, Milkshake, Buiten Westen, and Valhalla. ID&T’s passion and devotion to the overall festival experience is what continues to keep us at the forefront of the electronic music world. As dance music styles shift and public tastes change, ID&T consistently tries to place themselves ahead of the curve by carefully curating new concepts and events that focus on music, art & culture and sustainability. For this reason, every year, over one million visitors travelling from all around the world attend ID&T’s renowned festivals.
