On to the main event and there’s no shortage of heavyweight names headed to Fort Punta Christo. 2017 has seen the rise and rise of electro, dance music’s gritty, raw relation – and there’s a solid selection of acts flying the flag, from Kraftwerk at the opening concert to new school representative Helena Hauff. OG legends Detroit In Effect and Silicon Scally present jackin’, killer dancefloor productions, and Detroit masked avenger DJ Stingray is on duty with his trademark brand of dystopian electro. Billy Nasty is another herculean figure heading to the fortress. There’s a wild ride through electro in store from NY collective Discwoman as founders Volvox and Umfang delve deep into weirdo acid jams and more. Cult electro artist The Exaltics will play a rare set, and for all electro obsessives, there’s a CPU x Electrix stage with Billy Nasty, Silicon Scally, DMX Krew & CPSmith.
