Festival Line-Up 2019

Phase 1

  • Adriatique

    View Artist

    Adriatique

    Switzerland

    Both living in Zurich, each regularly performing as DJ's, and both named Adrian S., perhaps it was inevitable that Adrian Shala and Adrian Schweizer would meet in 2008 and form a near instant friendship. Perhaps it was destiny. But it’s the professional bond that followed for which we are so lucky, a bond that would help them ascend the dance music community as the production and DJ duo known as Adriatique.

    Constantly defining the parameters within resources and time, Amelie Lens plots to unleash well-timed, dramatic and super-tense climaxes. She relies only on herself for the dispersion of these decisive moments, but subconsciously it spreads like a virus throughout the crowd which makes everyone an accomplice in a way.
