Monticulefestival.com

Heading into its sixth year, Monticule finalises its stunning lineup for 2020. Having already announced a tantalising selection of names, the festival welcomes further talent from across the dance music spectrum, featuring showcases from an array of influential labels and the scene’s most exciting trailblazers. With activities away from the dancefloor also on offer, Monticule continues to boast a diverse and global programme for all attendees that’s simply not to be missed.

The previously announced and eagerly anticipated Malka Tuti showcase expands to 24 hours, with I’m A Cliché label boss Cosmo Vitelli and Hugo Capablanca joining the likes of Khidja, Asaf Samuel & Katzele, Shari Vari live, Full Circle, Fantastic Twins live and Optimo (Espacio) in taking dancers on a dizzying and ambitious trip across day and night. The unmissable showcases continue, as the pioneering Zozo, mesmeric Eva Geist live and Sacha Mambo play in the prestigious name of Macadam Mambo and Andrea live, Zenker Brothers and Surgeon represent the iconic Ilian Tape sound, the latter having just released the twisted techno of The Golden Sea EP on the imprint earlier this month.

Acclaimed Berghain resident Efdemin makes his Monticule debut and it’s destined to be one for the history books, while supreme selector Lauren Hansom touches down to showcase her vast record collection and strictly individual spirit with Multi Culti boss Dreems demonstrating his “multiply your mind” label ethos with thrilling results. Berlin’s LackRec crew is well supported thanks to slots for Fadi Mohem, Marie Montexier and Victor, along with Benedikt Frey, who will treat dancers to his unique channeling of electro. DJ Dustin and Vlada from Giegling will make appearances across the weekend, as well as activist of the Såo Paulo LGBTQ scene, Cashu, whose politically-charged set should make for a festival highlight.

Further features can be found away from the dancefloor and within Monticule’s quieter corners, as the nearby swimming hole and picturesque waterfall entices weary dancers to take a peaceful dip or limber up during yoga lessons. Thrill seekers can get to grips with a skateboard mini rap, while festival goers can also tap into their creative side through painting workshops or turn their gaze to the sky with astronomy classes.

Only 1h30 drive from Toulouse, festival-goers can also sample the famed cuisine and wine of the area at their leisure, with local producers and food trucks serving up the tastiest grub throughout the 5 day stay.

5 day tickets for Monticule Festival are now 149€ + booking fee. 3 days weekend ticket and group tickets also available.

DGTL goes 100% circular – Amsterdam 2020

After making great strides in the field of circularity for years, electronic music festival DGTL is taking a crucial next step during its upcoming eighth edition. As a pioneer in the field of innovation and sustainability, DGTL has created a circular blueprint that can be applied to both a festival and a city. DGTL Amsterdam, which kicks off the festival season on April 11th and 12th at the NDSM Docklands, is, therefore, the world’s first electronic music festival that pursues full circularity.bothfestival and a city. DGTL full

The DGTL sustainability program has been running since 2013 and has been aimed from the outset to close cycles in the areas of energy, water & sanitation, food, commodities (waste) and mobility. As the aim this year is to close the entire DGTL circle, organisers have deemed the term ‘CYCLE’ their overarching theme for the 2020 edition. DGTL will close the cycles for a number of on-site systems, including energy, resources, water and sanitation.

Of course, DGTL remains first and foremost a music festival, and for years have been working with a sustainable way of programming, combining international headliners with local talent. With over 65 artists spread out over seven stages, DGTL focuses on deepening and broadening the music line-up. For the broader audience, the Modular and AMP stages create a real festival vibe. Connoisseurs and purists can find their way to the techno stage Generator or the more underground-focused Filter. An increasingly prominent part of the program is set up for live performances on the large LIVE stage. View the full line-up at https://dgtl.nl/artists/line-up.

COLLABORATION WITH THE CITY OF AMSTERDAM

It’s entirely feasible to view a festival as a temporary miniature version of a community. People work and consume, move, eat and sleep. Much like in a community there are all kinds of different flows such as money, energy, food, exchange of knowledge, water and creativity. For this reason, DGTL sees its festival terrain as a living lab for circular innovation in neighbourhoods and cities. By entering into partnerships with, among others, the City of Amsterdam and the Central Government, the festival takes on urban challenges on themes such as the energy transition and a new more sustainable form of sanitation.

ENERGY NEUTRAL

With regard to energy, the objective this year is simple: during show days, energy consumption must come entirely from renewable sources. This means from sun, wind or other inexhaustible sources. The City of Amsterdam has invested in the event facilities at the NDSM Docklands; for example, the construction of additional power boxes has increased access to the main power grid. This means that all energy-demanding parts of the festival – such as bars, lighting and the food court – can simply use the sockets on the NDSM Docklands for their power supply. DGTL’s energy system will be completely energy-neutral and emission-free during show days and the festival is parting ways with traditional diesel generators.

FROM URINE TO WATER, FROM POO TO COMPOST

DGTL has also started a pilot together with the City of Amsterdam, researchers, toilet suppliers and processors to realize a circular sanitary system at the event. Urine is converted into (gray) water and faeces are processed into compost. DGTL hopes that this pilot offers a blueprint which neighbourhoods, cities and the music and events industry can learn from.

PLANT-BASED MENU

After the introduction of a meat-free food court in 2016, in recent years DGTL has moved towards a menu consisting of rescued food and imperfect products. This year DGTL is taking a step further by offering a fully plant-based (vegan) menu put together by a select group of chefs.

MOBILITY

Another important spearhead is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions as a result of mobility movements. By far the largest part of DGTL’s greenhouse gas emissions is caused by the travels of visitors. Artists’ flights, transport of suppliers and the use of machines during the festival build and dismantling process also produce emissions through burning fossil fuels. DGTL is closely looking at ways to make mobility (visitors, suppliers, artists) as efficient and sustainable as possible.

Regarding the fuel used for the machinery used during the set-up and breakdown of the event, DGTL will switch completely from diesel to biodiesel this year. With this, the festival reduces the CO2 emissions in that area by 89 per cent. This year, DGTL also focuses on making travelling by train attractive for both national and international visitors. The festival offers special ticket deals, promoting national and

international train transport when purchasing a ticket for DGTL Amsterdam. DGTL aims to direct as many visitors as possible towards travel by train instead of flight travel.

ABOUT DGTL:

DGTL is a global electronic music festival with editions in Amsterdam, Santiago (Chile), SaŢo Paulo (Brazil), Barcelona & Madrid (Spain), Tel Aviv (Israel), Bangalore (India) and during the Amsterdam Dance Event. Besides the focus on music, the organisation brings a mix of unique art installations and revolutionary sustainability projects. Their sustainability program distinguishes them within the festival landscape. For the full line-up and more information please visit www.dgtl.nl

Amnesia is truly home for electronic music lovers from all over the world, for people who come together and celebrate the best DJs and live acts in the game. This huge opening is an annual time for great celebration and always offers production thought through to the last detail, incredible lighting effects and the most advanced sound system in the world on the famous Terrace which boasts the kv2 Audio. This year it’s headlined by returning favourites, Paradise hero Jamie Jones, deep digging American selector The Black Madonna, techno mainstays Adam Beyer and Marco Faraone, Brazilian leader Anna, edgy tech champ Michael Bibi, much-loved Spanish legends Cuartero, Mar-T & CAAL go back-to-back and another special back-to-back between Sidney Charles & Seb Zito, Moon Harbour and Origins Rcds associate, Luca Donzelli, as well as Amnesia residents, Les Schmitz, John Woods and Carolina Fe.

 

Once that opening has set a high standard for the season ahead, the weekly parties will keep the vibes alive all summer long. First up, the now world-renowned Pyramid has made a huge splash in just a couple of years with standout names like Nina Kraviz and Ricardo Villalobos playing in the past. Each week, the iconic club is turned into an immersive adult playground with a world class soundtrack and so expect more next level experiences in 2020. This season, it runs each Sunday from June 7 – Sept 27 with a wealth of international names headlining each week.

 

Saturdays will be all about Elrow, undoubtedly the most colourful, spectacular and fantastically outlandish party in the world. The world famous production is beyond belief, the atmospheres are always crazy and the sound track comes from contemporary DJs who really know how to pack a dance floor. It runs weekly from May 23 – Sept 26 and will be the one and only place to be for those who like to be submerged in imaginary party worlds.

 

Together is back to retain its crown as one of the most eclectic and immersive nights in the White Isle on Mondays from June 1 – June 29, then from Sept 7 – Oct 5. For 10 whole years now, this party has been bringing festival-sized line-ups to Amnesia each and every week and to celebrate all that they will be hosting 10 special events under the 10 x 10 banner with legendary residents Chase & Status returning once more. Will and Saul will be bringing with them a horde of hand-picked special guests, world exclusive debuts and first time, one-off B2Bs on their most ambitious season yet, showcasing the best from their latest RTRN II JUNGLE project, alongside all new music to road test for those lucky to bear witness. The lights, lasers, ice cannons and visuals are off the chart each and every time and the very best of bass music is showcased with drum & bass, urban, house, grime, techno and more all covered.

 

As well as this huge opening party and the weekly residencies, there will be a unique series of six spectacular parties from Do Not Sleep – dates to be announced soon – plus a very special guest with her own Friday night party, and plenty of live shows that will transform the world renowned Ibiza Terrace into something you have never witnessed before.

 

Already, this is shaping up to be the most complete and comprehensive season in Amnesia’s long and storied history.

“Our most recent addition to the Time Warp lineup (which debuted last year) is Floor 7, which will be back and better than ever in 2020. With help from returning partners Rockstar Games, Floor 7 will deliver a cutting edge lineup and an all new sensory experience combining design, sounds and visual technology.”

Richie Hawtin “Wow… Time Warp was emotional. This moment was cinematic. Time Warp represents a family. This celebration of life means so much. I will remember this moment for the rest of my life. Thank you Time Warp and the whole family. To another quarter century and beyond. And love to all the people who danced, that was a special one.”

Planet Paradigm 2020

Planet Paradigm Announces Full Line-up For 2020 

Zip, DJ Masda, SIT + more set for 23rd May party in Groningen, NL

Cult favourite forest festival Planet Paradigm is back once again for third magical getaway. This one day trip goes down deep in the Groningen woods on May 23rd 2020 with the likes of Zip, DJ Masda, SIT (Cristi Cons & Vlad Caia), Onur Özer, Junki Inoue, Ferro B2B Benny Rodrigues, Abstract Division, Reiss, DJ Orchid B2B UlsT and many more all providing the stylish and stripped back soundtrack for a surreal intergalactic getaway.
VBX is hugely well respected in the underground dance world. The parties they throw in places like Amsterdam are always packed with proper music lovers thanks to the tasteful line-ups assembled. Each one mixes a crack team of residents with hot stars of the day and bona-fide legends. The team knows their local Amsterdam scene inside out and back to front and have a stylish minimal aesthetic to all they do, which means the music is always the main star. They know the best venues and put on legendary parties during ADE.
Meanwhile, once an abandoned warehouse, Paradigm is an important cultural hub located in a rural area of the northern Netherlands that has its own rich rave history. They also host their own wonderfully immersive festivals that create a space where you can be yourself and express yourself freely in a community with people from all walks of life. 
Once a year these two behemoths come together to create a unique one-day opening to Planet Paradigm. This cultural phenomenon is a close-knit affair with real music lovers and has sold out each and every time. It always takes in headliners who contribute their own classy, left-of-centre sounds to help visitors reach a higher state of consciousness by triggering all six senses from sunup until way past sundown. The surroundings are mystical, too, with unconventionally designed stages such as the Forest Stage, Dome Stage, Romney Stage and Club all immersing you in an escapist realm that feels many miles away from everyday life. 
Like last year’s showcase, aural and visual senses will be pleased in particular with all flavours of left leaning house, techno and electro from deep diggers like Zip and Onur Özer, Cabaret Records co-founder and Japanese favourite DJ Masda, taste making minimalists SIT (Cristi Cons & Vlad Caia), a live show from French wonderkid Sweely, mysterious Rotterdam techno talent Tafkamp, special back to backs from Paradigm and VBX legends like Ferro and Benny Rodrigues, with more from Abstract Division, Reiss, DJ Orchid B2B UlsT,Colin B2B Roy Lodder and much more.

waterworks

Waterworks festival

Waterworks 2020

Brand new electronic music festival Waterworks will debut in East London on Saturday August 22nd 2020.
The brainchild of a group of friends including the founders of Percolate and Love International; Waterworks has been devised in a bid to create a totally unique offering for the capital. For one day only, a vibrant party will bring together the diverse talent that forms the foundation of London’s underground music scene, unconfined by genre or stature. The most promising rising stars rub shoulders with an array of the deepest diggers in the game and, with no headliners billed, all sets are given freedom to shine across the day. 
The musical offering unites an array of dance music royalty and exciting new talent, a blend of both DJ sets and live acts. Boasting some of the most revered selectors in electronic music, Andrew Weatherall, Ben UFO, Shanti Celeste   and more head up an eye-catching roster that includes SHERELLECall SuperEris Drew and FAUZIA, as well as featuring the blistering bar delivery of man of the moment Novelist, a lesson in bass music courtesy of L U C Y and the unmistakeable drum and bass sounds of the legendary DJ StormObjektKrywald & FarrerBody HammerCall Super, Saoirse and Craig Richards will also unleash genre-spanning sets throughout the event, with more still to come.
Team Waterworks says: “As soon as we found the site, the idea for Waterworks almost instantaneously came about.

The site is fully enclosed, meaning that it feels detached from the city, arriving in a destination you can hardly imagine from the busy metropolis nearby. It has the natural beauty of wildflower meadows, hinting at the adjacent nature reserve. It is hemmed in by trees along the river, that contrast with the industrial landscape that lies just beyond its borders. The nearest residents are at a reasonable distance from the site, making it ideal for minimising noise issues. We are working alongside a seasoned sound design team, so we can deliver the volume and sound pressure proper dance music deserves; we are confident of levels that are unparalleled in East London. We want to create intimate and architecturally intriguing open-air spaces that meld with the surroundings. We want to form unique dancefloors – somewhere to lose yourself in the moment.
Musically, we want to focus on some of the different flavours, strands and genres of dance music that have come to shape the rich musical heritage of London. This sonic palette stretches from the weirder sounds of Equiknoxx and Cõvco to the energy of younger artists like Sicaria Sound and Sherelle, to the gritty lyricism of Novelist. We want to pay homage to scene veterans like Andrew Weatherall and Mala, while also showcasing the current stalwarts of the scene like Ben UFO, Saoirse, Objekt and Shanti Celeste. Finally, we want to invite a few international guests from our extended friends and family who we feel are masters of their field bringing something exceptional, such as Eris Drew, Nicolas Lutz and Job Jobse.

Importantly – we don’t want something dominated by ‘headliners’, but a lineup that is greater than the sum of its parts. We don’t want to barge on to the festival calendar with excessive exclusivities that inhibit the vital local club scene. We also want to help provide a platform for the younger artists that we are really excited about with set times that you might usually find for a headline act. We want to build a festival that our mates would come to but also for dance music lovers, young or old.”

AVA BELFAST : Full names and brand new site for 2020

Moving site in 2020, AVA continues to push its ethos of presenting attendees with the very best Belfast has to offer. Heading outdoors to the Boucher Road Fields, a site that has played host to the world’s biggest acts over the years, AVA plan to repurpose the site allows festival-goers to get the most out of this new outdoor experience. Incorporating industrial design while retaining its boutique event feel, attendees can lose themselves amongst immersive art installations, intimate stage designs, and a headline ready mainstage. AVA continues to simultaneously lead the way on the international festival market while shining a light on Belfast as a music and art hub with an immensely influential presence on the world stage.

AVA are hyped to reveal home-grown hero Max Cooper will be commanding the stage for an electrifying opening live show, kicking off the 2020 event with a serious bang before two full days of electronic music specifically programmed with AVA’s committed fanbase always in mind.
