Electric Elephant returns for its seventh year from July 10 – 14 in Croatia, set on the beautiful Adriatic coastline.
This 'intimate boutique experience' has just announced two further headliner names performing at the festival this summer, and also introduces two debutants.
The cosmically-twinned seminal DJs Derrick May and Francois K will both star at Electric Elephant. Derrick is one of the founders of the Detroit techno scene and often referred to as a true legend of electronic music. He will be playing at the stunning outdoor setting of Barbarella’s nightclub (late 1970's Ibiza experience springs to mind!). Expect a thundering soundtrack from Mr. Mayday himself until sunrise and beyond.
Francois K is New York’s Deep Space resident and one of electronic music’s most iconic figures. Having previously appeared at EE back in Petrcane where his main stage set went down in Electric Elephant history, this year he returns to play a very special six-hour Beach Bar Balearic selection on Sunday from 6pm until midnight. Expect everything from dub to jazz, soul to disco and beyond.
Debutants Munk runs Germany’s esteemed Gomma, a DFA-inspired label which encapsulates his own vision, feted as one of the country’s leading electronic producers. Joining him will be The Emperor Machine, Andy Meecham’s solo project, born out of the Chicken Lips’ member’s desire to create new sounds using vintage equipment and seventies production techniques.
Plus, Soul Jazz Soundsystem are behind the brilliant Soul Jazz Records; the collective is a record label, record store, sound system, publisher and radio broadcaster. Further names added include Kabal - Winston & Pipes, Man Power (Hivern/Correspondant), 2 Billion Beats, Hustle DJs, Civilisation DJs andDarren Stewart.
They join recently added names including Good Times founder Norman Jay, celebrated beat master Motor City Drum Ensemble, Panorama Bar resident Prosumer and the intriguing Awesome Tapes From Africa.
