RBMA Radio teams up with our friends from Nachtdigital again to capture the highlights of one of our favourite summer festivals in Europe. Among the mass of electronic music events, Nachtdigital stands out as a rare exception. Handmade decorations, inspiring visual arts, a limit of only 3,000 tickets, and a carefully selected programme have helped Nachtdigital retain the holiday camp feel that it first became famous for back in 1998. Attention to detail is the festival’s watch-word, with perhaps the most care afforded to its musical programme – the finest purveyors of electronic dance music spin a soundtrack to an idyllic setting, with the calm lakeside forest and deckchairs in the sand balancing the revelry around the intimate stages. While the digital age might insist on connecting everyone to within an inch of their social network, Nachtdigital proves there’s no substitute for small gatherings of strangers with a shared love of dancing and celebration.
This year's ND16 line up includes some of the freshest names in the game such as Barnt, Helena Hauff, Xosar, Academy graduates Lukid and Cinnaman, plus all time heroes like James Holden, Joy Orbison, Âme, Michael Mayer, Gerd Janson, Deadbeat, Magic Mountain High, plus Blawan, Blondes, Anstam, Mark E, Portico Quartet, Steffen Bennemann, Metaboman, Chymera, Manamana, Lena Willikens and more.
Highlights will be recorded for RBMA Radio.
