New year, new Love International line up reveal!
Barely any time’s gone by since Love International unveiled the first wave of acts that will be performing at this summer’s festival – which will take place in Tisno from 27th June to 4th July.
And now, the festival has announced the latest set of very DJs, producers and more that will be appearing at the third edition of the festival. The 2,500 revellers that will descend on the gorgeous festival site this summer are truly in for a treat!
Latest Love International Line up Reveal
Perhaps most exciting of all is the news of the debut of some incredible DJ sets. First up, Four Tet is quite simply one of the world’s finest electronic musicians, spanning pure formed dance music to the scintillating eclectic strands which surround it. Likewise, fellow aural experimentalist Floating Points also transcends genre, weaving through jazz, classical, soul and broken-beat influences into house and techno, a cerebral sound scientist who enervates, educates and entertains in equal measure. Hunee, one of 2017’s most in-demand DJs, segues through delectable disco and soulful to jackin’ house excursions, infused with fizzing energy and the mark of crate-digging endeavour. And Bicep know a bit about crate-digging, too; the mercurial duo are widely regarded as two of the finest DJs and producers of the electronic era.
But there’s plenty more exciting line up news besides! Love International regular Midland lights up the festival each and every time he appears. Three of the finest exponents of house and disco, Gerd Janson, Young Marco and Horse Meat Disco will be in Tisno this summer, with each really epitomising the sunshine energy of the festival. Life and Death founder and Love International debutant DJ Tennis is next, the Italian icon working with Tale of Us and Mind Against and he is an esteemed label A+R, producer and DJ. Then Palms Trax makes a very welcome return after last summer’s scintillating boat party, the Berlin-based artist a regular at Panorama Bar, Concrete and De School. And fellow Berliner Call Super is another outstanding young DJ and producer, linking together cultured house and techno.
Crazy P Soundsystem are perennial fixtures at the festival and bring a lovely touch of gravitas and warmth; occasional regulars Paranoid London check in with a DJ set; and revered Dutch selector Job Jobse played Trouw’s last ever set, a huge honour bestowed on the feel-good young spinner bringing hands-in-the-air energy to the Adriatic. Two inspired duos also touch down – disco deviants Rub and Tug weave across Italo to acid via post-funk rarities, and Electric Chair’s The Unabombers, much-loved and long-seasoned Tisno heads, return to Love International.
The festival’s co-founder, Tom Paine, explains:
“We are feeling really happy with the lineup for 2018 which features many brilliant debuts and some very welcome friends and family returning. Our third year is going to be very special indeed for everyone and we can’t wait for the summer!”
The latest wave of artists further illuminates the festival’s broad musical scope and takes in an even wider range of sounds and styles, from sunshine reggae and seductive soul to rare funk, cosmic disco and all-out 4/4. This includes everyone from the genre-skipping Artwork to San Fran disco artisans Honey Soundsystem, from electronica’s creative force Moscoman to esteemed Italo exponent Intergalactic Gary, from Space Dimension Controller’s vast musical tastes to the Secretsundaze’s crew and their acclaimed house and techno-inspired events, and from Moxie’s eclectic vision on NTS, Marvin and Guy’s genre-defying 70s and 80s party sets and the truly unique Rebolledo.
Further highlights include techno-rock hybrid Zombies in Miami, the legendary founder of the hugely influential Robert Johnson club, Ata, and intoxicating boogie, pop, house and disco from Francis Inferno Orchestra. Berlin’s Wilde Renate resident Paramida has shaken up the city with her DJ sets and revered label, Love on The Rocks, whilst there’s a very welcome return from Tisno perennials, PBR Streetgang, having just release their debut album, and genre-bending Rinse FM star Josey Rebelle brings house, techno, boogie and much more. Then Heidi Lawden’s Magic Roundabout radio show reflects her taste-making and genre-skipping delight, Panorama Bar’s resident Roi Perez also weaves across many styles, Metro Area’s deep disco king Darshan Jesrani returns to Croatia and Ray Mang performs a rare set away from his always estimable studio work.
