I love Techno is for dance fans and lovers of booze !– the website warns fans to drink with moderation as last year many punters were so drunk they never made it to the festival! I love Techno takes place in Belgiums’ Flanders Expo – an indoor arena that can hold up to 10,000 electronica enthusiasts as they dance to the music of Justice, Digitalism and Underworld.
Over to Skegness in the Uk for The Big Reunion at Butlins Entertainment resort which will be transformed into six magical arenas by event producers Kinkymalinki, Judgement Sundays and Kissdafunk. Djs at The Big Reunion include Judge Jules, Tim Westwood and Dave Pearce.
From the UK we head to Taksirat in the Republic of Macedonia - an ancient country located in the Balkan peninsula, it ceded from Yugoslavia in ’91 and the capital city Skopje is the birthplace of Mother Theresa.
Thanks to Cveta from the festival who responded to my email and tells me that Taksirat is an old Turkish word meaning destiny – both good and bad! It began 10 years ago as a totally underground event and even though its grown its kept to its ethos – most of the audience comes from surrounding Bulgaria, Serbia and Kosovo. On the bill - Audio Bullys, The Roots, Swayzak and Happy Mondays.
Now to Australia for Stereosonic – an electronica and digital arts extravaganza – Brisbane’s already sold out but tickets are still available for Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and New Caledonia – on the bill - UK’s Carl Cox, Israel’s Infected Mushroom and Germany’s Booka Shade.
