DGTL, de Revolution Foundation, Oerol and Innofest are helping 7 companies, social projects, and students from across the Netherlands in setting up a testcase at DGTL and Oerol. We are testing innovations, initiatives, and art projects aimed at making the festival and creative sector more sustainable, inclusive, and diverse.

How to create an inclusive event?

What is a safe space? How do you ensure that everyone can be themselves on the dance floor? In preparation for the tests, we interviewed various people from our community.

Which test cases are located where?



The Soulmate is a mobile and accessible relaxation cabin for festival-goers. This cabin ensures that every target group can visit a festival with peace of mind and always take a moment for themselves to unwind. At DGTL, the creators are testing how visitors experience the cabin and whether it enhances their festival experience.


Peepal’s gender-neutral urinal collects urine during DGTL, which they later convert into plant fertilizer.


In the battle against the 150 million cans that end up on the streets annually, TechTics developed the TinTrooper. This mobile robot approaches people and collects cans. Through a QR code, people can easily get their deposit back. During DGTL, the TinTrooper will compete with regular trash bins to investigate how people can be encouraged to recycle their cans.


DGTL considers it their mission to provide a safe and enjoyable festival experience, and to positively impact the music industry. However, this is only possible if we create a festival environment that is safe and welcoming for everyone. To work towards the collective creation of safer dance floors, MusicMoves organizes a program in the Living Lab that focuses on the queer community. See below for the program:

Over Oerol

Oerol is an annual arts and theater festival held on the island of Terschelling. The festival is a unique blend of nature, culture, and artistic creativity. The island’s natural environment serves as a stage for special location performances. Oerol aims to achieve a 90% fossil-free production of the festival by 2024. Together with creators, scientists, the audience, and the island itself, the organization is working towards minimizing its impact as much as possible.
