After an insane 2017, Glitch Festival promised its fans an even bigger third edition 2018. And if the lineup that’s just been unveiled is anything to go by, then that ambitious feat might’ve just been achieved.
The star-studded lineup of disco, house, techno, acid and electro legends is hoping to attract electronic music lovers from every walk of life.
Among an insane list of 26 DJs, this year sees Nina Kraviz, Jeff Mills, Floorplan and Rødhåd headlining the two-day festival.
Here’s the full lineup:
Some of the most exciting names on the lineup this year are young DJs who have really built a name for themselves in the last year. Apart from that, eight of the acts are also female, which is sadly not too much of a common occurrence in the electronic music scene. That’s been thankfully changing in the last couple of years, and Glitch is definitely capitalising on the fresh talent that’s emerged from this resurgence.
Last year’s Glitch Festival hosted 4,000 people from over 50 different countries, and this year sees the gates of the ‘house and techno fortress’ reopen to close of summer 2018 in style.
While the venue for this year’s edition will yet again be the sprawling of Gianpula fields (and multiple stages, from rooftop pool parties to secret, ancient vaults), Glitch 2018 has actually moved its date up by a couple of weeks.
Santa Marija week is when the huge festival will go down this year.
The main event at Gianpula will be happening on the 14th and 15th of August. But the party won’t stop on the 16th, with a boat-party planned for a sun-soaked finale. The lineup for the boat party (oh yes, that’s an actual separate thing altogether!) will be revealed later on.
