“VELD wouldn’t be what it is today without the fans and incredible artists that have graced the stage over the last decade. We are grateful for all the support and good vibes they bring to the festival every year and are looking forward to that continuing for the next 10 years to come.”
Other names who will be performing on stage include Sofi Tukker, Meduza, and Bob Moses. The three stages at VELD 2023 will offer three different music experiences; electronic dance music on the main stage, house music on the Sirkus Stage, and UK hip-hop and grime exclusively on Friday, August 4th and dubstep and bass for the remainder of the weekend on the Hillside stage.
