Not content with delivering their highly-anticipated fourth album Mosaik next year, Austrian headliners Camo & Krooked will also be presenting their own festival.
Destination Nu Forms 2017: Following this year’s successful launch, Nu Forms’ second annual three-dayer will continue the inclusive full D&B spectrum theme with all subgenres and styles represented. The key difference this time is that every act and b2b combo on the bill has been handpicked by the duo themselves.
After only positive feedback from the first edition we are building on that solid foundation and try to make it the best possible experience for everyone involved, the artists and the visitors, to keep the special family vibe, where everybody feels welcome and part of the community.
The line-up includes, besides a lot of heavy hitters, some very interesting B2B combinations that haven’t happened before. Nu Forms provides a huge variety of styles of D&B, from neurofunk to liquid, from experimental to jump up, from legend to newcomer. The key is to get the balance right and I think we did that really well this time.
You be the judge: phase one of the line-up that will eventually comprise over 100 acts, has been revealed today and it goes a little something like this…
ANNIX | BLACK SUN EMPIRE | BODY&SOUL B2B DISASZT | BREAK | CAMO & KROOKED B2B NETSKY | DIMENSION | DJ GUV | DJ SNARE B2B ZONAR | DOC SCOTT B2B BAILEY | DOREE B2B SHIFTY | DORIAN B2B SKORE | DOSSA & LOCUZZED | EMX B2B ELIZE | ERNESTOR | F4TR4XX B2B RAPTURE | FRICTION | GOLDIE B2B DILLINJA | HARRY SHOTTA | HIGH CONTRAST | HIZZLEGUY | HYPE B2B HAZARD | IVY LAB | JUNE MILLER B2B FOURWARD | KASRA B2B ENEI | KIMYAN LAW | LEVELA B2B JAYLINE | MABE B2B MINOS B2B SPLITTER | MACKY GEE | MALUX | MAZTEK B2B GRIDLOK | MC BOMBAMAN | MC DAXTA | MC FAVA | MC MAKSIM | MC STEEZY | MC STORMIN | MEFJUS B2B PHACE | MEMTRIX B2B JOE FORD | METRIK | PANDORA B2B CODA | PHENTIX | SPECTRASOUL | SPLINTA | TANTRUM DESIRE | TENCHU B2B BREAK PITT | THE PROTOTYPES | TR TACTICS | TWENTY FREEZE B2B IMPACT | UPGRADE B2B NU:ELEMENTZ | WINGZ B2B PHLAGE |
All styles represented and a tight balance of Austrian talent, freshmen, OGs, heavyweight headliners and B2B collaborations… It reads like a full D&B festival line-up already and this is only half of it.
The festival itself has also had a little fine-tuning, the duo reveal:
“There are improvements in the venue as well. The outdoor stage is getting an ‘art installation-meets-relaxing point’ overhaul. And to experience the music in its highest possible quality, all stages will again be equipped with Funktion One sound systems.”
The second phase of the line-up will be revealed in February but you best save the date now as it’s already looking serious:
June 29 – July 1 2017 – Wiesen Ottakringer Arena, Austria – Details
