Taking place in the picturesque Roermond, Eindhoven from August 4th – 7th, creative hub and music festival Solar Weekend has plenty of international stars lined up for its 12th edition. These include techno royalty Len Faki, Dutch star and Rejected label boss Joris Voorn, eccentric veteran performer DJ Rush, plus Miss Kittin, Boris Brejcha, Egbert (live), Roman Poncet, Riton, and Fedde le Grand, with dozens of other names from myriad genres all playing to a crowd of 30,000 people.
However, what sets this festival apart from the rest, is its dedication to boutique design, one-off stages and special art concepts. The whole festival, from the stages to the installations to the attractions and performing art, is all designed by young creative teams and collectives with more than 1,000 of them involved in all (in fact last year the festival reached the milestone of having worked with more than 5,000 creative folk in all over the last 12 years). Anyone can submit their ideas in the run up to the event, and the best and most imaginative are then commissioned and funded by Solar. The creatives involved then get to see their dream made a reality, and as well as making for extra special experiences for the festival-goers, it also adds a real community spirit and vibe. and gives the brightest creatives a platform to showcase their work.
