Essential Festival

In collaboration with E&A Events and 4PM Entertainment we proudly present the all new NYE concept "HELLO 2019" at MECC Maastricht. With the emergence of our new concept in MECC Maastricht we have decided that Essential Indoor will not take place in 2018.

We are proud to unite forces with E&A Events and 4PM Entertainment, as a result of the collaboration we are able to present an even more spectacular show during new years eve and present artists of a high level in Maastricht.

For the organization of this event three event organizers are uniting their forces: Essential known from a.o. Essential Festival, Essential Indoor and Someone Told Me. The Amsterdam based event organizations E&A Events and 4PM Entertainment a.o. known from Don't Let Daddy Know (a.o. at Ziggo Dome), Tik Tak and Kingsland Festival (which took place in five cities with 150.000 visitors).
