Dutch dance festival, Extrema Outdoor has changed its name to XO Live. The festival, in its 17th year, will take place on July 14 in Aquabest, near Eindhoven.

Marcel Mingers, Extrema’s managing director, said: “Nowadays the yearly calendar displays various dance festivals with the same programme, while a couple of years ago we were rather unique. That has got us thinking about a new concept. When all festivals start to look alike it’s time for new developments.”

XO Live has a new logo and future events will feature more live acts and dance artists as well as DJs. Two new stages will feature including a large indoor arena and an open-air stage, which will host theatre.

The festival line-up will be announced on April 18.
