Aftermovie ODR 2023


This was Onder De Radar Festival 2023.

In every way, 2023 felt like a pivotal year for Onder De Radar. The beauty in this is that it must have showed – as we felt more supported and encouraged by our community than ever. What followed is still difficult to comprehend. Like a positive version of Murphy’s law, everything that could go right, went right. From seemingly impossible stage designs to devastating weather forecasts, the amount of sheer luck from day one until show day is truly humbling. But it really did happen, and as said before: no one can take this from us.

So all that’s left to do now is to thank each and every one of you who was there with us that day, and invite you to go back one more time by watching this beautiful 3 minute summary with us.

See you next year on 31 August!

Aftermovie Onder De Radar 2022


Finally, Onder De Radar again after 3 years of waiting. For us it was difficult to verbalize expectations to one another. All systems were go, and there was no single reason to worry, yet it all seemed too good to be true. That changed when the gates opened and you entered the terrain. What followed was a warm bath filled with 12 hours of unity, smiles, ecstasy, hugs and a lot of love. Like one massive reunion that escalated into a perfect day. That is what this video reflects.

We can’t thank you enough. See you next year ❤️

Basic Grooves – A dedicated group of music fans.


Basic Grooves is one of the longest running techno organisations in The Netherlands. The infamous club nights have been a corner stone of the techno scene in the east for over two decades. In recent years, the events have gone through massive growth and artists like Amelie Lens, Nina Kraviz, Charlotte de Witte, Jeff Mills, Job Jobse, KI/KI and Paula Temple found their way to Enschede to headline the events.

Founded in 1996, the club nights were intended as a response to the rising popularity of electronic music events. The club nights quickly became a breeding ground for a generation of new artists and promoters, ranging from Joris Voorn to Brent Roozendaal.

The club nights are followed by a huge rave on Kingsday (27 April) by the name of DE REACTIE. The location for this rave is the campus of Universiteit Twente.

Last but not least, Basic Grooves is behind the only techno festival this side of the country: Onder De Radar Festival. This festival takes place at an abandoned military airbase in Enschede. Last year the event was attended by no less than 15.000 fanatics!

All in all, the passion for techno is our guide. Techno events by a dedicated group of music fans.


This is Onder De Radar Festival


Just outside of Enschede, in the Twente-scenery, you’ll find an abandoned airbase. A truly unique location with a rich history, at which the very best electronic music has to offer comes together, once a year. This is Onder De Radar Festival.

Check the aftermovie of our previous gathering and find out everything the airbase has to offer below!

Vliegbasis Twenthe

Right in between the bunkers and shelters, it almost feels as if time stood still. And when standing next to an armed F16-shelter or underneath the still operational (!) radar tower, you can almost feel the intriguing history. Not surprisingly, as it’s only been 14 years since the Dutch Department of Defence left the site. The area has been in development ever since, and now enables the many thousands of visitors to experience Onder De Radar.


Sometimes unexpected, within all the ecstacy and excitement there’s an exceptionally special moment. Luckily for us, our photographers developed a sixth sense to be at the right place at the right time and to capture these moments:


On the humongous Vliegbasis Twenthe, through the open fields alongside the strip and the forests between the barracks and bunkers, adventure is right around the corner. Find a hammock between the trees or discover a new stage when exploring small and hidden paths: there’s never a dull moment on the airbase.
