Upcoming Techno Festivals - February 2019 Upcoming Techno Festivals - February 2019

The January blues are over, New Years resolutions have been made and broken, and we are well and truly into 2019. But some things never change, no matter the day, month, or year, we have parties to plan and festivals to look forward to. And remember, for all techno festival wear, including our new bags and phone cases, we've got you covered.

Here are my picks for the best Techno Festivals for February, and unlike Fyre festival, which has been grabbing all the headlines recently, all these festivals are confirmed.

III Points Festival - Miami

15/02/2019 to 17/02/2019

 III Points started as an Art Music and Technology festival in Wynwood that was created in 2013 by locals who felt the need for a better way to showcase local Miami talent alongside world renowned artists. What began as a homegrown festival has now become a platform that showcases not only world class talent but shines a spotlight on local emerging artists and tech start ups giving them an opportunity to make their voices heard.

Standout for me here is Marvin & Guy. I saw them at DGTL Barcelona a couple of years ago, and have been a fan ever since.

Maceo Plex | Leon | Ben Ufo | Porter Robinson | Peggy Gou | DJ Moon | Orange | Sammy | Dj Koze | Joy Orbison | Honey Dijon | &ME | Lena Willikens | Danny Daze | DJ Stingray | YokoO | Be Svendsen | Emperor | Rocky | Mall Grab | Moscoman | Adam Port | Stavroz | Laurel Halo | A$AP Rocky | Egyptian Lover | Rampa | Marvin & Guy | Nicholas | Auntie Flo | Baba Stiltz | Khruangbin | Jacques Greene | Lilith | DJ Seinfeld | Durante | Masego | Dean Blunt | John Maus | Smerz | Haute | Ms. Mada | Simple Symmetry | Goddollars

The Cityfox Live -  New York

16/02/2019

From the site "an electronic music festival to exclusively showcase, focus upon, and celebrate the art and craftsmanship of LIVE performances. Spanning three stages across Avant Gardner, Cityfox LIVE will feature new, never-before-experienced sets in their rawest and most organic form."

Highlights for me are the legends Octave One, and Italian maestro Georgia Angiuli. If you've never seen her live, make sure not to miss her blend of vocals, electronics, and sounds from unusual sources, such as a toy frog. I'm not kidding.

Âme | Stephan Bodzin | Rodriguez Jr. | Mathew Jonson | Vril | Octave One | Giorgia Angiuli | Ruede Hagelstein | Johannes Brecht | Tim Engelhardt | John Tejada | Giorgia Anguili | Dandy Jack | Wajatta | Justin Marchacos

In-door Gijón - Spain

22/02/2019 to 23/02/2019

This is the first edition of In-door Gijon, which aims to be the main winter electronic music event in Northern Spain, and with a line up like this, it seems to be well on its way! The events will take place in different venues in Gijón, in spaces such as the Paintings Room of the City of Culture, Albéniz Theater, the Acapulco hall of the Casino de Asturias, the Ambigú terrace and a "Vermú Session" in the Mercado del Sur, one of the most representative buildings of the center of Gijón. The most important event will take place in Luis Adaro Fairground. 

It's hard to single out favorites from this killer lineup, but if you're going, try not to miss Mind Against, Oscar Mulero, and the wizard himself, Jeff Mills.

Âme | Mind Against | Adaro | Jeff Mills | Booka Shade | Vitalic | Oscar Mulero | Dennis Ferrer | Matrixxman | Adam Port | Veronica Vasicka | Pional | BeGun | Richi Risco | David Mallada | Héctor Llamazares | Kresy | Jairo Beltrami | Mastersoul | Boston 168 | Another Machines | David Moreira | Dj Enrique | Akkan | Re:axis | Dima aka Vitalic

Soenda Indoor - Utrecht

23/02/2019

Soenda is a great little indoor techno party in Utrecht every year. I visited this myself a few years back. That particular winter was so cold, and with so much snow that all trains from the airport were shut down, and the bus driver didn't tell us our stop, so we ended up having to get back to Utrecht from Amsterdam! Despite all this, the party made it all worthwhile.

This year, make sure you catch DVS1 and Perc.

Luna | Dvs1 | Tom Trago | Jennifer Cardini | Dasha Rush | Perc | Tsepo | Nuno Dos Santos | JP Enfant | Remco Beekwilder | David Vunk | Some Chemistry | Phase Fatale | Parrish Smith | Van Anh | Amotik | Titia | Domenico Crisci
