Electro Venice Festival 2011

18 June 2011

Last year it was seen by 20,000 fans, a huge success, with the participation of world-known artists and deejays from around the world and sounds of the Electronic and Techno scene: Ellen Allien, Mr. Oizo, Digitalism, Richie Hawtin and many others. They kept the audience entertained and spurred it to dance under the starred sky of the Venice lagoon, making the event a real success and paving the way for this years second edition, again in the wide stage of the Parco San Giuliano in Mestre (VE).

The show, the only one of its kind in the whole of Italy, will be held on June 18, with the opening at 4pm. It is set to last until the small hours and like last year will include two separate stages: the White Stage, for Techno and related music, and the Red Stage for Electronic music. This lively event will be headlined by Fatboy Slim, the author of the successful single 'Turn On, Tune In, Cop Out, which has in the past topped the charts and was used as the soundtrack for a Levis jeans commercial.

Next to the famous English deejay, other important artists will participate in the euphoria of this night: the Canadian Deadmau5, one of the major representatives of the worlds electronic scene, with a following of almost three million fans and considered the heir of Daft Punk. Contributing to setting the stage on fire there will also be Afrojack, a world phenomenon and the authored who has remixed tracks of important artists, and Goose, origination from Belgium, a band acclaimed both by the public and critics for their combination of dance and rock music. The evening promises to be full-on and exciting. The closing will be down to a local line-up with the Reset, a group of five deejays from Milan, who have already worked in the most important clubs around the world.

For those keen on dancing and letting it all loose, this is undoubtedly a not-to-be-missed event: for a whole day Parco San Giuliano will lend itself to be the stage for an electronic world music event, already promising to match, and no doubt surpassing the success of last years event.
