Blies Festival is a event produced by the HardWorkSoftDrink crew

By News No Comments

Offenbach teams understand how to deliver a festival, and with the neutral ground like the famed Robert Johnson, few do it better than Hardworksoftdrink. Their parties are legendary, so it’s no surprise that they’ve been hard at work planning another wild bash.

Blies Festival is an exclusive experience that will gather a superb array of performers on Saturday, September 4th just outside Mannheim at the edge of a lovely lakeside in the city of Ludwigshafen.

Because the party is limited, it is advised that you do not snooze on tickets. The excellent news has been that the after-party is already booked, and if the day and night line-ups are any indications, the after-action will be something different.

Every one of the artists involved is wild, Vlada, Quest & Christian AB, Rona Terenzi, Mathew Jonson, Francesco del Garda, and Dr. Rubinstein are all playing to the day’s music.

The event can be followed on Facebook and tickets can be purchased here.

Nostromo festival has announced a lineup of 120 artists for its September edition

By News No Comments

Based on the success of their last OFF-festival edition in July, Nostromo has planned an even larger festival in September, lasting four days from September 16th to September 20th.

The French ensemble has a history of hosting spectacular parties. Their event curation has been essential to France’s developing scene over the previous four years. Deep-dive DJs are frequently invited to unexpected parties, typically in secret places with superior sound systems.

The event will be hosted one hour outside of Paris, in the beautiful castle grounds of Château De Motteux, a 16th-century building, as it was in July. Music goes from Thursday through Monday without a pause, according to a holy 24-hour license.

Next month, the Nostromo team will welcome over 120 musicians distributed over 5 stages: all kinds of music will be represented, from house to minimal, techno to even harder techno, as well as ambient, downtempo, and experimental.

The activities will begin with an opening performance, which will also be ATOM TM’s only event in Europe this year, as well as OCB aka Driss Beniss LIVE, and Carl Finlow LIVE. Showcases from Uruguay’s Phonoteque, a stage hosted by Dure Vie with Octave One as a special guest, the Rinse stage with Francois X and Bjarki live, and the boiling Cartulis + Lumbago stage with Binh as a headlining act are also on the agenda.

Many magical moments may be expected during the weekend, given the attention paid to artist selection, gorgeous natural locations, and extended performances from prolific DJs. Over the four days, camping is free, with the opportunity to upgrade to one of a selection of deluxe tipi tents that are ready to go on site.
