For Tim Italiaander, director of the festival, Neverland is a dream come true. “I have always been fascinated by theme parks. It’s like you enter a completely different world where everything is possible. A place where you can escape from real life for a day or two.” The enthusiastic entrepreneur continues elaborating on the festival’s beginnings: “In recent years me and my partner Rob Schins, who programmed our techno stage, have been to a lot of different festivals all over the world, but we never felt there was something quite like what we had in mind for Neverland: great musical acts in an imaginary world and wonderful setting.”
