The Lowlands backstory

Originally known as "A Campflight to Lowlands Paradise", it was one of the first ever Dutch pop festivals. The first edition, under its old name, was organised in Jaarbeurs, Utrecht, by the Dutch artist Bunk Bessel.

For a couple of years, the festival didn’t take place, but finally, in 1993 some brave event organiser revived the festival and Lowlands found its new home in Biddinghuizen, where it has stayed to this day.

Getting to Lowlands

Lowlands organises a completely free shuttle bus service from Dronten and Lelystad train stations for the duration of the festival.
