Actually quite a poorly kept (but great) secret
Calling your festival Best Kept Secret and then publicising the arse off it is a bit counter-productive, but we might be reading into the name a bit much there. We're glad it's not a well kept secret though, because it's an amazing festival in the Netherlands. Expect lots of frolics (the Dutch do frolics well) with Indie Karaoke, tucker-tastic BBQ and a clog-load of stages and tents. Stage tents, that is. Normal tents with normal people in them wouldn't be very impressive.
Just down the road from the wonderful city of Eindhoven, BKS is a great way to get festival season into full swing. Shhhhhhh, don't tell anyone*
Eindhoven would be a relatively low-scoring word on Scrabble because of the abundance of vowels. However, this is irrelevant because city names are inadmissable in the game of Scrabble.
