Into the Void
After five editions Into the Void has become a much appreciated music festival when it comes to stoner, sludge, doom and everything related. The sixth edition will take place on the Friday October 19 and Saturday October 20th, 2018 in the cultural capital of the north: Leeuwarden (also the home of Into the Grave and Cityrock Leeuwarden), in the venue Neushoorn.
Into the Void will present you with more than 25 bands divided over 2 days. Each of those bands will (literally) blow you away with heavy, slow riffs or surprise you with their distinct and hybrid sound. The festival is not only known for its massive line-up, but also for the good atmosphere, the beautiful artwork (posters are available at the festival) and t-shirts. And let’s not forget about the vinyl you can buy for your collection and the beer that will definitely flow!
Check the line-up on this website, check our Facebook and our Twitter. We appreciate all help, so share our page and event with your friends, share your experiences, so we can make the festival a great success. We are looking forward to welcoming you in October!
Into the Void is sponsored by the Dutch Foundation for Performance Art (Nederlands Fonds voor de Podiumkunsten). Check their site for more info.

When you arrive by public transport, you can use NS.nl for planning the route by train and 9292.nl – for a journey that includes busses or other means of transportation. The venue is five minutes away from the central train station. Make sure to check your journey on the day of your travel, since the times are subjected to changes and delays.
The city Leeuwarden has plenty of hotels, hostels and campings (although this might be a bit cold in October) so you can stay the night and you do not have to worry about driving back. We recommend the WTC Hotel Westcord, but there are many hotels for every budget. Check them out here!
If you are attending the festival the entire weekend, or even a full day, it is likely that you will get hungry at some point. You can eat in the bar of the venue and you can easily walk into the city for a bite.
