Before the biggest and most extensive Loveland kicks off on August 10th in Sloterpark, Amsterdam, we delve into five the most essential acts to catch at the festival. Loveland; a festival with a rich heritage that’s been built upon hosting great stages amongst unique locations dating back to the mid-nineties.
The festival truly is known for being friendly and welcoming and is an essential pilgrimage for all serious music lovers. This year it’s fully expanded into a weekend-long experience, so get the full lowdown here and read on for our top artists.
Tickets to Loveland Festival can be purchased here.
This former Panorama Bar resident is best known for making underground heads go wild with her deep and classy selections, but she can also size-up her sounds to a festival stage and make a huge impact too. House, techno, plenty of vocals and her own slick productions on labels like Perlon and her own label all color her sets, ensuring she’s a thrilling DJ to listen to.
The kings of their own funky planet, Soul Clap deliver the ass-wiggling beats like no other. Their sounds take in house, disco and plenty of funk; ranging from deep to bumping to creamy and vocal-tinged; a blend of total electronic bliss. This Bostonian pair really know how to play to the crowd and mix a true party spirit.
The Disco Halal label boss is one of the most eclectic producers and DJs out there. He can do trance-laced house, raw techno, machine-made disco and plenty in between. His releases on labels like Diynamic and Life And Death all prove this and in the booth he doesn’t mind serving up plenty of curveball surprises, something the Loveland crowd would surely be accustomed to!
For many years now, Cardini has been an absolute electro queen. Her Correspondent label has put out some of the very best the genre has to offer and her own sets are a testing ground for that material. She is sure to get freaky in the woods at this one so make sure you get a good spot.
This legendary techno DJ shows no sign of stopping, and it is no secret that he is a favorite of ours here at 6AM. His DJ sets remain as high-octane and driving as ever, and his ability to build tension and release it just at the right time makes him one of the best techno acts in the world, period. An essential must-catch at this year’s Loveland festival.
