Instead they melt dance rhythms with Jazz, Funk, and Soul.
During the third evening Minimal is king and renowned artists such as Marco Carola, Loco Dice, Magda, or Paco Osuna play incentive loops full of sharp basslines and touching melodies.
At the final night the Festival gets real miscellaneous and unpredictable. DJ Koze will scratch Techno with House. Furthermore the legendary DJ Harvey introduces his brand-new longplayer Locussolus.
