ID&T is a Dutch entertainment and medium enterprise that was founded in the early 1990s and organizes the largest dance events in the world. The label was founded by Irfan van Ewijk, Duncan Stutterheim and Theo Lelie (= I, D & T).
It all started out as these three guys organizing a post-Graduation party “The Final Exam” in 1992 in Utrecht. After this first big success, they organized a lot more party events such as Thunderdome, Mystery Land and Global Hardcore Nation. At the end of the nineties however, Hardcore and Gabber music became less popular and ID&T (who employed over 50 people at that time) decided to abandon their traditional music style. In 1999 they organized Innercity in Amsterdam, an indoor event without hardcore music.
The company went trough some changes the last couple of years. The label ID&T is now owned by Be Yourself Music, and they sold their publishing company too. In order to stay in the music business they started Dance-Tunes.com, one of the largest legal download portal in The Netherlands nowadays. In January 2005, radio station ID&T Radio was renamed to SLAM FM, with more commercially focused music. A few months later it was sold to 2HMedia.
Today, ID&T is still a major dance organizer in The Netherlands, Belgium and abroad. Some well-known events: Thunderdome, Mystery Land, Innercity, Trance Energy and Sensation.
ID&T stands for the initials of three founders of the company, Irfan, Duncan and Theo, all residents of Amsterdam. All three were experienced in the art of organizing house, techno and trance parties when they created ID&T, and their goal is to organize the largest events in the Netherlands and the European electronic dance music scene. Their first big event was "The Final Exam" in the Utrecht Conference Center, with more than 10,000 people in attendance.
