Bologna: Robot 02 Festival
- Date published
The line up of the three days bash in Bologna looks like an early Christmas gift for all electronic dance music lovers.
On September 16th the festival starts with a concert of Shape, the new electronic supergroup featuring Carl Craig, Moritz von Oswald, Francesco Tristano, Bachar Khalife, Justin Messina and David Brutti.
Even if you didn’t hear much about this new formation until now, as soon as you read the names of the members you can expect some unheard avant-garde adventures. Later on that evening, Carl Craig is playing one of his DJ-Sets that makes House music sound like a trip to the future.
The next day features a lot of movie documentation about electronic music pioneers like Richie Hawtin or Kraftwerk and gives an insight in the rich history of electronic music.
On Friday 19th another night will leave you overwhelmed from wonders. This time, the American avant-garde electronic music producer Deadelus plays a live set. Also Warp Records artist Tim Exile presents his multicolored longplayer Listening Tree. After midnight the French acoustic House sensation dOP (picture above – by Myqua) is playing one of their fantastic live sets, where organic music meets jazzy club rhythms.
It’s on Saturday, that the roBOT 2.0 folks cap it all, because they invited the German Techno pioneer Wolfgang Voigt to present his worldwide famous ambient project Gas live with an mind blowing video installation. Later in the night highly acclaimed electronic artists like Seth Troxler, Guillaume & The Coutu Dumonts from Canada or Mirko Loko from Switzerland are playing House and Techno with an edge.
So – if you didn’t have a real good festival summer yet and you love all aspects of electronic club culture, then roBOT.02 festival will definitely give you what you missed out during the last hot months!
And this with a line-up that satisfy each taste for electronic club music.
As the Italians say: Tutti i gusti son gusti.
