RA's Five key Dekmantel Festival performances

“In five years, Dekmantel Festival has developed into a magnet for young, clued-up lovers of electronic music. It has slowly and successfully expanded its musical remit beyond the staples of house, disco and techno, while also elevating its core artists to new heights. Emboldened by the success of Motor City Drum Ensemble on the main stage in 2016, festival organisers this year threw plenty of curveballs into the programme. Acts like DJ Nobu, Ben UFO and Antal & Hunee were given closing sets, with thrilling results. Other acts were thrust into slots that recontexualised their talents, with Nina Kraviz, Marcel Dettmann and Motor City Drum Ensemble charged with opening the Selectors stage.”
