DGTL Brings Jeff Mills, Robert Hood, Jamie Jones, and more to ADE 2018

Based in Holland, DGTL has become one of the most successful festivals in the Dutch scene. Headquartered at the NDSM Docklands, DGTL has had three straight sold-out editions since its first rendition in Spring of 2013. The festival has been extremely selective with the line-ups

DGTL was first launched in the Spring of 2013 in the Netherlands where it introduced a forward-thinking concept with a more selective approach to curation. The festival quickly sold out for the next few years and quickly established it’s reputation as one of the premiere festival brands throughout the Netherlands and the world. It then expanded the brand to Barcelona and Amsterdam Dance Event merging music with art. They then went meat free in 2016 offering no meat options for food at their festival and later on launched DGTL Records with the first release by KiNK.

Cultural and artistic performances are a staple for DGTL creating an innovative experience that is both memorable and awe-inspiring. The organizers seek out the latest in technological innovations and advances to create an unforgettable experience. DGTL’s Revolution puts sustainability at the forefront making fundamental changes to their setup and day-to-day activities. The organizers search for the latest ways to reduce waste, lower CO2 emissions, increase awareness with themes like “Going Veggie”.

The venue is a 10 minute boat ride from Amsterdam Central Station on the NDSM-Werf docklands in Amsterdam North. The site faces Neveritaweg’s waterfront offering spectacular views of the IJ river and is an ancient shipyard with old industrial buildings, abandoned wharfs and warehouses, rusty shipwrecks, and derelict containers. The whole area is covered in graffiti and street art to provide the ultimate party location.

The one and only Jeff Mills chose DGTL to be his one and only show this year at ADE together with none other than his longtime mate Robert Hood and his daughter which make up Floorplan. Robert Hood and Jeff Mills go back nearly two decades where they joined forces on Underground Resistance. It is difficult to even look up the history of techno without mention of these two. They will be joined by none other than Nina Kraviz, Mall Grab, and a live set by Bicep on Thursday at the festival’s home, NDSM Docklands.

DGTL will also play host to Jamie Jones’ Paradise on Friday and Bonobo’s Outlier project on Saturday where Bonobo will go back to back with Ame and KiNK. DJ Koze, Mano Le Tough, Tom Trago, and Leon Vynehall will also join Bonobo on the bill as well as newly minted talent such as Tammo Hesselink and Moxie. Jamie Jones will be accompanied by none other than Derrick May, Darrius Syrossian, Maya Jane Coles, Richy Ahmed, Detlef & Latmun, Mark Jenkyns, and Luke van Dijk and will see a live set by Dubfire.

Skream and Doc Martin Removed from Paradise LA Lineup Because Deemed To Be “Rave DJs”

If the headline seems absurd, it’s because it is.

Jamie Jones’ Paradise party series announced its arrival to Los Angeles last month with a line-up that was meant to feature Doc Martin, Skream, Art Department and of course Jamie himself. Scheduled for this afternoon at the city’s Levitt Pavillion at Macarthur Park, the event announced that it is strictly 21+ and all attendees will have their bags searched, a condition dictated by  the City and the Los Angeles Police Department.

Sadly, however, it seems like that wasn’t the only condition enforced by local officials. A couple of days ago Paradise announced that Skream and Doc Martin couldn’t make the party due to reasons beyond their control, a familiar PR line used by promoters that could frankly mean a myriad of things.

A little investigation has however brought to light the real reasons for this sudden change. According to our industry sources Skream and Doc Martin were deemed to be “Rave DJs” by local officials, who then imposed that they be removed from the lineup. While we know full well that Skream’s sets are a proper rave, the decision is clearly arbitrary, unnecessary and frankly very misinformed.

The full lineup set to perform today consists of Marques Wyatt, Nathan Barato, Art Department and Jamie Jones.

While nothing official has come out stating the reasons for the cancellation, Skream took to his twitter to point the finger to councilmen and to let fans know that he will be playing a surprise show in LA, which is still unannounced as of right now.

Why Kappa FuturFestival Is Worth Making the Trip For

Full disclosure: my first Kappa FuturFestival in 2012 didn’t take much traveling, but was nevertheless more than worth the trip. I lived in Milan then and reaching the nearby Northern Italian city of Turin (Torino) took less than two hours by train. By then the festival had undergone two editions and had changed format to become the first 10o% daytime festival in Italy, ranking as one of the top 5 electronic music festivals to attend in Europe.

I was surprised when I arrived at the venue of Parco Dora to be surrounded by tens of thousands who had come from not only just all over Italy, but also the rest of Europe. In a continent where you can find huge underground dance music events in every single corner, from the island of Malta that sits between Sicily and Northern Africa to quarries in Estonia and everything in between, it is sometimes a little difficult to understand how much Europeans travel in search of great music. Once you see it though, finding yourself surrounded by thousands speaking a myriad of different languages, you realize just how powerful the music is and how much draw certain festivals have.

Kappa FuturFestival is one of those events that attracts visitors from all over Europe. More recently though, it’s iconic location, seen in photos and videos that have been shared by the millions on social media, and quality-heavy lineups have been enticing crowds beyond the continent to make the trip to Torino to attend.

Earlier in the month festival organizers had announced that Carl Cox, Jamie Jones, Sasha & Digweed, Sven Vath and Tale of Us would all be playing the 2017 edition, all now receiving some star-studded company with the Phase 2 lineup announcement that came this week. Attendees at the futuristic Parco Dora will be basking in the sun come July 8th and 9th, enjoying sets by the likes of Seth Troxer b2b The Martinez Brothers, Nina Kraviz, Paul Kalkbrenner and the legendary Fatboy Slim.

More names will be added, of course, making music one of the focal points of this edition like all others in the past. The beauty of a trip to Kappa FuturFestival is the two-in-one deal you’re offered by the simple nature of its location. Turin is a majestic Italian city of industrial workers, the home town of automobile giants Fiat, Lancia and Alfa Rome, and also a city full of history and beauty. The city sits on the bank of the Po, Italy’s longest river, and under the watchful eye of the iconic Mole Antonelliana and the soaring Italian Alps, and is surrounded by some of Italy’s most significant and revered wineries.

A visit to FuturFestival means being able to choose from a variety of other travel options in Turin and beyond, beginning with the nearby alps, the nearby French Riviera or perhaps some of Italy’s northern lakes including the famous Lake Como. The cities of Milan, Genoa and Florence are also nearby and easily accessible by train, as are other locations in France and Switzerland.

Alongside you at FuturFestival there will be 40, 000 other techno lovers as well as the usual world class audio systems, high quality production and a real attention to detail including tickets through smartphones and Cashless payment technology on site. Always environmentally aware and with focus on sustainability, Kappa FuturFestival proves once again why it is one of the most heralded techno festivals in the world.
