The three-day camping festival – which had its last two instalments cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic – will return to the Hilvarenbeek town of the Netherlands next summer, running over the weekend of Friday June 10 to Sunday 12.

It sports a live music program of 51 acts, with Jamie xx, Leon Bridges, Mura Masa, Beach House, Sigrid and Jessie Ware among the other acts listed high on the bill.

Further down the list, standout acts include Wolf Alice, Soulwax, Black Midi, Porridge Radio, Fontaines D.C. and Big Thief. Best Kept Secret also boasts a sprawling program of other instalments, such as the De Pont Museum, Films In The Forest and an impressive slate of restaurants.

Tickets go on sale at 12pm on Tuesday November 30, with a pre-sale for those who’d purchased tickets to the cancelled 2020/21 editions running three hours prior. Only full-weekend and camping tickets will be sold for the time being, though, with single-day tickets available starting February 1, 2022.
