Last year the Forest Rave was overflowing when Carista played a set there. 

A highlight of the festival for many, the boss of the United Identities label played her ecstatic house so intensely that it’s a wonder we didn’t get ourselves swept up in a forest fire. Recent track ‘Caught in The Loop’ brings a combination of electro and acid, so we’re very excited about what she’ll be cooking up at Draaimolen 2024.

Ben Sims is no stranger to our festival either, having played the very first edition of Draaimolen and hosting his own Machine Stage a year later. Whether spinning under his own name or his Ron Bacardi alias, the DJ and producer continues to push his own vision of techno.

Carista and Ben Sims have played in the same line-up before, but we’re happy to say that this is their B2B debut! We’re expecting a clash between these London and Utrecht titans that will shake the festival grounds for days to come. They will certainly bring an infectious energy to our forest this year.
