25th of April is the day when all the underground people will walk into the light and party like animals on the beach next to the sounds of the Black sea. Sunwaves will have its first edition of the upcoming new year 2019 and it’s a festival that needs no introduction as it has placed Romania on the map of the world's top electronic music festivals.
So this year the festival will take place in Mamaia Nord, Constanta, starting Thursday 25th and ending on the following Wednesday, 1st of May. 6 days of pure M A D N E S S. If you are not familiar with this festival, all you need to know is that:
You will be in the middle of “the place where history is written”.
You will meet with lots of friends or be with lots of friends.
You will make a lot of new cool friends from all over the world.
You will dance. Believe us.
You will feel free and careless.
You will get to hear masterpieces from your favourite artists.
Sun, sand, sea.
We would say these are enough reasons for you to join the festival, don’t you think? Not to mention that it is attended by many foreigners from all over the globe that come solely for the purpose to go through the Sunwaves experience and have a great time.
When we say history is written, we mean it, in the 12 years of the festival’s existence, iconic moments took place in our beautiful country, no one can ever forget Marco Carola’s marathon of mixing for 24 hours straight, the Vato Locos 42 hour showcase, the Tini b2b with Bill Patrick which also lasted for a record of 31 hours nor the moment when Ricardo Villalobos vs. Cassy played the Reboot – Caminando and many more moment like these which filled us up with joy, admiration, energy and a whole lot of dancing.
It is a story that started shy and currently is one of the greatest events expected across Europe and not only, it’s the place where most of the Romanian underground artists grew up, and in a metaphorical form we can say that Sunwaves is the Sodom and Gomorrah, the place of the loss for Underground Music Scene, whether we like it or not, it’s one of the most successful festivals in Europe.
Usually, the festival is split into 4 to 6 stages, one greater than the other, and it’s a complete universe. It is the place where all great names of Undergound Music are gathered, and then we have the regulars: Alexandra, Barac, Cap, Cezar, Dan Andrei, Dubfire, Dubtil, Emi, Gescu, Kozo, Livio&Robi, Herodot, Lee Buridge, Pan-Pot, Praslea, Priku, Raresh, Rhadoo, Petre Inspirescu, Richie Hawtin, Sit, Marco Carola, Villalobos and the list goes on ;)
So, are you joining history in the making?
