After a record 2023 edition with over 43.000 visitors that exceeded all expectations, Paradise City has established itself as one of the Belgian music festivals that can’t be ignored.
Now, the organization is gearing up for another summer. Visitors can expect big smiles, extraordinary music, and positive vibes across three days and nights. Besides its legendary dancefloor energy, the electronic music festival is famous for its lush green waterside location, constant sustainability efforts, impressive stage design, and high-quality light and sound productions.
Having launched the ticket shop last week, the Paradise City team has dropped the first part of the lineup.
With Bonobo and Maribou State, Paradise City will welcome two household names that have exported their brand of warm and organic dance music across the globe for decades. Those looking for faster tempos will be happy to see names like Marlon Hoffstadt, Job Jobse, Daria Kolosova, Skin on Skin and DJ Gigola.
These are some of the most sought-after DJs of the moment. Additionally, plenty of prime space is reserved for homegrown talent. For example, Blck Mamba, Emily Jeanne and Zouzibabe will get a well-deserved spot in the limelight. For the occasion, Antwerp’s Lola Haro will even go back-to-back with Berlin’s techno legend Marcel Dettmann.
Looking ahead, visitors will notice some significant changes this summer. After the success of no fewer than two new stages, including the Live Stage, live bands are gaining prominence among electronic acts. The organization now wants to continue that trend with a seventh stage, dedicated entirely to chill-out, downtempo and ambient performances.
More so, you can expect a complete audiovisual journey from start to finish, including better light production, improved sound systems, more surprising details and more art installations all over the site. Finally, there’s good news for those who want to stay at the campsite. The organisation will maintain the same capacity while enhancing the camping experience by introducing a proper stage and upgrading the chill zone.
Since day one, the Paradise City team has worked hard to make their event as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible. That’s why they’re happy to share that Paradise City has yet again been selected as one of the greenest festivals in the world by A Greener Festival – this international non-profit rates events on their sustainability efforts.
For the fourth year in a row, Paradise City is awarded the maximum of four stars, which makes it one of the greenest music festivals on the continent.
