Antwerp’s biggest house and techno institution showcases electronic music experience with a massive one-day festival on Sunday, August 25. Linkeroever’s Middenvijver site will host over 5 stages with a wide variety of established and upcoming electronic artists that represent the ever-expanding nature of house, techno, electro, jazz, and electronica.
For the first edition of Ampere Open Air, the promoters have decided to curate an eclectic line up, for music lovers and Sunday ravers.
Techno purists are in for a treat, with Detroit legend Jeff Mills, joining Berghain Berlin resident Len Faki, Ostgut’s crown jewel Marcel Dettmann and Recondite who will be performing live.
For those who like their sounds more stripped back, Romanian stalwart’s Raresh & Praslea will perform as the revered Praslesh duo.
Joining the line-up as well, the minimal scene’s golden child Ion Ludwig will perform live, while the mystical Lost Desert is expected to deliver one of his characteristic eery DJ sets. Straight from Berlin, the young and talented Emily Jeanne will return to her homeland to show what she’s been up to.
Complementing the headliners, you can expect a forward thinking line-up showcasing a range of rising and established underground talent from house, techno, ambient to future jazz. Amongst the first confirmed performers, are talents such as Ben Hayes, Synkro, and Dekmantel’s Palmbomen II & Betonkust.
Besides a strong international selection, are some of Antwerp’s highest calibre local talents. Ampere Open Air endeavours to give many undiscovered gems a well-deserved platform to showcase their artistry and musical creativity. Accordingly, the lineup favours a strong focus on locals such as composer and live performer Hiele, the rising star Lola Haro, and the illustrious Borokov Borokov Live.
Ampere Open Air is also giving festival-goers the chance to discover Valentin Tszin’s unique performance: the Russian-born artist and dance researcher has made a name exploring the worlds of architecture, film, contemporary art, theatre and new media, and has been producing his most recent works in collaboration with various techno musicians. A rare opportunity for the crowd to witness a beautiful, innovative and out of the box evolution of arts and electronic music.
The cherry on the cake? The international streaming powerhouse Boiler Room will take over one of the stages for a marathon live emission.
Still, we think it’s better to attend live the magic of Ampere Open Air on Sunday 25th of August, at Middenvijver (Linkeroever, Antwerp).
