THE LINE-UP

JON HOPKINS

Thu Aug 1st

  • Another big star of the electronic sound of recent years is Jon Hopkins: through a path made up of five albums and collaborations with artists such as Brian Eno, Coldplay, Herbie Hancock and Massive Attack, the London based musician has developed a very personal style that has evolved further with the most recent album 'Singularity', an album that explores the connections between our mind, sounds and the natural world embracing techno, psychedelia and reflective moments.

GILLES PETERSON &

MC GENERAL RUBBISH 

Fri Aug 2nd

  • Dj, producer, record company, collector: Gilles Peterson is a unique character on the world stage. It would be enough to mention the record labels he’s founded and directs (Acid Jazz, Talkin 'Loud, and now Brownswood). His passion and enthusiasm for quality music are infectious, as anyone who listens to him on BBC 6 Music or on the webradio he created, Worldwide FM knows. In his DJ set, he will be joined by MC General Rubbish, formerly known as Earl Zinger.

TODD TERJE

Fri Aug 2nd

  • Whether it's re-edit or its irresistible disc progressions, wherever Todd Terje puts his hands, results in an overwhelming mix of musicality and playfulness coming out. As already shown in his acclaimed first album 'It's Album Time', the imprint of the Norwegian DJ / producer is composed of catchy rhythms, dubby sounds, suggestive layers of synths, cinematic moods, and his resistance to being cataloged according to the usual schemes is evident.

APPARAT

Sat Aug 3rd

  • Four days together with some of the most interesting artists on the international scene, always on the border between avant-garde and pop. As proven by the new and critical acclaimed album 'LP5', Apparat's music contains an elegance that permeates every sound and gives details capable of generating beauty and strong emotions. 2019 sees the Berliner artist back on stage alongside his band, after recent experiences as part of Moderat and numerous works for theater, TV, and cinema.

YVES TUMOR

Sat Aug 3rd

  • Undoubtedly one of the most atypical artists of his generation, Yves Tumor is the inspired, enigmatic and chaotic alter ego of Sean Bowie, producer and performer from Tennessee, expressing an extremely bold aesthetic that has forged a promising reputation for brutal and energetic live performances. A few months ago he published 'Safe In The Hands Of Love' (Warp Records), an eclectic record that blends noise, ambient, pop, r & b and post-punk with a contemporary sensibility.

DEENA ABDELWAHED 

Thu Aug 1st

  • In her first album 'Khonnar' - released at the end of 2018 for InFiné - the French-Tunisian Deena Abdelwahed realized a highly personal version of the most visionary and experimental electronic sounds, in a non-conformist work that affirms her identity as a citizen of the world.

BAMBA PANA & MAKAVELI 

Fri Aug 2nd

  • Of Tanzanian origin, Bamba Pana & Makaveli are among the pioneers of the vibrant electronic scene of East Africa. Among the leading artists of the Nyege Nyege Tapes label, the producer and rapper combine satirical lyrics and influences ranging from South African house to happy hardcore.

JUAN WAUTERS 

Fri Aug 2nd

  • Born in Montevideo (Uruguay) but a New Yorker by adoption, Juan Wauters simply tells of himself to the world around him in his songs, infused with folk-rock and Latin roots.
 

JAYDA G

Sat Aug 3rd

 

  • The profile and popularity of Jayda G are constantly on the rise: the Canadian artist who lives in Berlin, recently released on Ninja Tune, her debut album 'Significant Changes', highlights her innovative interpretation of Chicago house. 

 

NAPOLI SEGRETA  NINOS DU BRASIL  CARLO PASTORE  CIAO. DISCOTECA ITALIANA FUNKRIMINI

JIMA FEI + YAFFRA 

  • A VIVA! Festival the collective Napoli Segreta will arrive, releasing last year the cult compilation (published by Early Sounds Recordings), in which they selected some of the rarest grooves of the disco and funk scene. Now at home in the most prestigious festivals around the world, at soon at VIVA! There are also Ninos Du Brasil, a duo formed by Nico Vascellari and Nicolò Fortuni that translates the unprecedented mix of techno, batucada, and samba into cathartic carnival shows. Finally, the musician Nicola Conte returns. Conte is inspired by the Italian music of the sixties and seventies, ranging from bossa nova to jazz tradition, which he spins in his sets, in a well thought out and sophisticated manner.
