Join the Verknipt team as an Event & Artist Handling intern! 

 

VERKNIPT is an event organization focusing on (hard) techno, industrial techno and other rave music. We host indoor and outdoor events throughout the year at different venues, booking well-known artists and introducing our visitors to new ones. In addition to Verknipt, we also host the yearly indoor and outdoor events of Wonderland Festival, in which we can put our otherworldly creativity.

Verknipt was founded in 2012, but within a short time Verknipt has become a well-known name in the Netherlands. We are known for our amazing laser shows and the good vibe among the ravers! In recent years Verknipt has made its mark throughout the country. With many events such as Verknipt ADE, Verknipt Festival, Verknipt anniversaries, Hard Techno Specials, the NYE/NYD editions, Wonderland Festival, Wonderland Festival Indoor and many more, we have captured the hearts of many techno and house fans.
