The long wait is finally over! Our favorite beach festival Neversea reveals new names for its 5th edition, which takes place in the coastal city of Constanta, Romania. Superstar DJs and producers such as Lost Frequencies, Paul Kalkbrenner, Claptone, Steve Aoki, Vini Vici, and Tujamo are the headliners who will join the majestic mainstage on July 6-9.
Berlin’s Paul Kalkbrenner is a unique international talent. After several chart-topping albums, millions of fans, and headlining festival mainstages worldwide, Paul Kalkbrenner has become one of techno’s biggest superstars. This year he will perform for the very first time on the breathtaking mainstage after last year’s show on the Temple stage.
Lost Frequencies is a world-renowned artist with 10 platinum singles and over 1 billion streams on Spotify.

Claptone is set to take the festival-goers on a unique musical journey. Since hatching in 2012, Claptone has continued sending people into a frenzy with his DJ sets, underpinned by supple grooves from the house world, are colored with real soul, and can jack you up or zone you out.

The famous rapper Lil Uzi Vert and Reggaeton’s Global Ambassador, 5-time Latin Grammy winner J Balvin are the first live acts announced as premieres for the 5th edition of the Neversea Festival.
Lil Uzi Vert became well known in the underground culture by releasing his mixtape, “Luv Is Rage“, in 2015. One year later, he attracted attention on the mainstream scene with the debut single “Money Longer“, a track with more than 579 million listens on Spotify now. The American artist has great collaborations with Gucci Mane and Migos, with whom he released the single “Bad and Boujee“, which led to his first appearance in the official ranking of the United States Billboard Hot 100. “Bad and Boujee” has been awarded 4 Platinum Discs.
This success was followed by “XO Tour Llif3” – the promotional single for Lil Uzi Vert‘s debut album, “Luv Is Rage 2“. Thanks to this single the American artist was number 1 on the Billboard 200. Recording The Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified the album Six Platinum. In 2018, Lil Uzi Vert was nominated at the Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and was The Weekend’s guest on the Canadian artist’s European tour.
J Balvin, one of the Top 10 streaming artists globally on Spotify, has a huge fanbase worldwide. He is recognized by Billboard as “the biggest breakout act Latin music has seen in many years” and Pitchfork as “the face of modern Reggaeton,” Balvin is leading a second generation of Musica Urbana stars that have propelled Latin music to an unprecedented global embrace.
