HippieLandia Festival took place in the beginning of the summer and left pleasant memories in hundreds of music lovers. The sets of Black Sun Empire, Gorgon City, Gus Gus, Dax J, Netsky, HVOB and the powerful Bulgarian support still echo in our ears. In one of our two reviews we even took the liberty of announcing HippieLandia Festival for the best festival of the whole summer despite of how early it came to pass. Consequently it tuned out that we weren't too far from the truth because in the next months almost no event provoked such emotions. After the slightly monotonous summer season in which we enjoyed uniform initiatives in the country (except the very end of the season and some rare interesting inclusions at its height) we put up with the fact that we had to wait almost a year to the next HippieLandia, which could break up a little the dull festival stereotype here.
However, EventEase surprised us with a quite enjoyable fact, springing on us the happening of HippieLandia Club Event. The event is fixed for the middle of November and the exact date is the 12th. Judging from its name it will be a club event and will take place in a one single night (in contrast to the two-day summer fest) and will be carried out in the two halls of MIXTAPE 5. One of them will carry the name Bass Romance stage (a series of Bass events organised by EventEase), and the other one - Filter stage. For the moment it's too early to make full announcements for the whole event since we know so little details. However, the names of three of the headliners are already known and from them we can deduct that HippieLandia Club Event will be the same imposing event as was its summer counterpart.
The influence of Skeptical on the modern Drum and Bass is enormous. He is one of the most significant artists on the British stage. His performances are weekly and his audience comes crowding to the clubs and is hard to enumerate. Not only is he a producer and a DJ but the artist is also known for his devotion to the loud and well resounding bass. A huge might and depth lie in his sets although the dynamics of the elements in the selected tracks isn't as high.
Headliner of the Filter stage will be the French experimenter and techno guru The Hacker. The artistic alias of Michel Amato, as his real name is, comes from the legendary Jeff Mills track of the same name and whose style Amato tried to imitate in the beginning of his career. Later Amato imposed himself as one of the biggest innovators in the global electronic scene producing a nice blend of electronica and rock together with his close friend Caroline Hervé. What is this this really about? Well, Caroline is more famous as Miss Kittin and the innovative genre - as electroclash. Yes, one of the fathers of the electroclash which conquered Europe and the world in the late 90' and the beginning of the new century comes to Bulgaria to take a special part in HippieLandia Club Event. With this awesome booking, EventEase have again shown us their incredible flair for artists who are in the search for new horizons in electronic music.
Information for the tickets is still missing. We don't know yet whether there will be other headliners. Every new information will be uploaded on our site in due time so keep your eyes open!
