About Dreamfields 

Dreamfields Festival is located at the beautiful Recreational Area Rherderlaag in Lathum, near Zevenaar. The location provides an amazing view over the water, with boats, hills in the landscape, and a mind-blowing sunset, making it an ideal venue for the world of Dreamfields.

The Dreamfields concept revolves around the music, artists, and visitor experiences. Stage design proves to be an important aspect of a visitor’s experience. A lot of planning goes into the last closing show, which lasts 15 minutes and blows the audience away with lasers, fireworks, and flames.

Role of Backbone

From the very first edition of Dreamfields, Backbone has been involved in the technical realization of this annual event. Dreamfields is a dance festival based on multiple flows in the electronic dance music industry. With five areas and 25,000 visitors, it has become an important player in the full festival rooster the Netherlands has.

So, Backbone has performed the roles of Production Management, Overlay Management,  and Office-On-Location for Dreamfields. The Production Manager will discuss the new plans during pre-production with Matrixx, the organization behind the festival, and try to join forces to achieve an executable schedule. During the production execution, the Production Manager is responsible for the day-to-day business. With a team of Overlay experts, the entire fence will be placed only within a few days, in addition to construction, bicycle parking, etc. Within one and a half weeks, the entire festival will be built from scratch! With such preparations, we can complete the buildup within a few days.
