Being able to sell out shows of this magnitude is yet another example of Verknipt’s incredible ascent to the top of the industry and sets a remarkable precedent for future editions. Verknipt ArenA will undoubtedly go down in history as a pivotal moment for the hard techno genre. In just three years, the sub-genre’s popularity exploded, with Verknipt undeniably playing an instrumental role. Just last week, Verknipt managed to sell out all five of their huge Amsterdam Dance Event-showcases, spread out across three venues. In coming months, Verknipt will host a multitude of events in their native Netherlands, as well as across the border in Spain, Germany, Colombia, Poland and Hungary.

Established in 2012 in the Netherlands, Verknipt has spent over a decade cultivating its reputation in the dance music industry. Initially focusing on techno and house music, Verknipt later evolved into a trailblazer in the hard techno events space. By embracing a new sound and employing an exceptional social media strategy, Verknipt swiftly ascended to the forefront of one of the industry’s fastest-growing genres.
Since 2020, Verknipt has witnessed a consistent increase in visitor numbers, reaching an impressive peak of 155.000 in 2023, with expectations of nearly doubling in 2024. The organization has hosted numerous events in its native Netherlands and beyond, including flagship events such as Verknipt Festival and Verknipt AFAS as well as 5 monumental events during Amsterdam Dance Event, drawing in 20.000 visitors. In July 2024 Verknipt ArenA will be added to the list, marking the world’s largest hard techno event to date with an approximate 40.000 visitors.
In alignment with its exponential growth, Verknipt is expanding its footprint internationally, venturing into countries such as Spain, Colombia, Germany, Poland, and Hungary, among others. Verknipt’s global impact is another testament to the movement the organization has managed to create. In under four years, Verknipt has managed to expand across borders and even continents, reaching tens of thousands of international fans.
