Join the Verknipt team as a Marketing & Social Media intern!

VERKNIPT is an event organization focusing on (hard) techno, industrial techno and other rave music. We’re hosting multiple national & international events throughout the year, indoor and outdoor, booking well-known artists and introducing our visitors to new ones. In addition to Verknipt, we also host the yearly 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 World. With many events such as Verknipt ADE, Verknipt Festival, Verknipt anniversaries, the NYE editions, Wonderland Festival, Wonderland Festival Indoor, the Verknipt international editions, and since 2024 also our very own hard techno record label ‘Verknipt Records’, we have captured the hearts of many techno fans. Our vision is: “Nothing is mandatory, everything is possible”.
