  • Holland's Welcome To The Future festival is set to host its third annual event tomorrow, with a headlining set from Loco Dice. The one-day open-air bash is held just outside Amsterdam (between Oostzaan and Landsmeer), and is set to attract thousands of ardent house and techno fans looking for their summer raving fix. With Amsterdam currently going through a bit of a creative resurgence as far as electronic music is concerned, there's plenty of internationally recognized local talent on offer, with 2000 and One, Daniel Sanchez, Boris Werner, Lauhaus, David Labeij, Melon, Secret Cinema and Makam all making appearances. UK techno stalwart Ben Sims will headline the Techno stage with a solo DJ set, Jimpster and Agnès will stretch out the deep house grooves over at the Future stage, while the middle ground will be covered in the Circus tent where Radio Slave, Karotte and Tobi Neumann will all take to the decks. For our money, however, the highlight of the day should be the live performance of local supergroup Amsterdam 661, which will see Julien Chaptal, Boris Werner, Lauhaus, Kabale und Liebe, David Labeij, Daniel Sanchez and Dorine Dorado all getting their laptops out for an improvisational jam session.
