There will be three stages hosting 24 hours of music across the whole event, with sunrise and sunset parties set to be one of many stunning features of this gathering as well as watersports, sun bathing, local cuisine and cultural trips and much more.
The latest line-up revelations find the long running techno mainstay that is Joseph Capriati bringing his big and powerful sounds, plus fabric resident and Nothing Special label boss Craig Richards serve up his twisted take on house and techno, with Romanian minimalist Raresh serving up his infectious and stripped back sounds. There will be more cult house selections from Perlon boss Zip and minimal favourite Vera, while tech house titan tINI also plays, as does hit making Italian Leon and Dynamic’s melodic house masters Adriatique. With many more talents covering all shades of the underground sonic spectrum you can also look forward to Cap, Cris Rej, Erti Lutaj, Ferro, Franco Cinelli, Hugo Bianco, Igor Vicente Jonny N’Travis, Manoloco, Ohmme, Mike Shannon and Traumer.
Throughout the event, there will be extensive food and drink options including a grill, pizza, salad bar, vegan/veggie offerings, fresh seafood, an ice cream van, vitamin bar, wine and cocktail bar plus a chillout zone with various shops (including vintage festival clothing, sunglasses), various relaxing and fun services such as massage, body/face painting, and plenty of hammocks and alternative entertainment to the main music of the festival.
