On the 4th and 5th of February 2017, Dekmantel celebrates a brand new chapter in its history. The festival will - for the first time ever - travel from hometown Amsterdam, all the way to São Paulo, Brazil. This first edition, Chilean mastermind Nicolas Jaar performs his new album live, while Jeff Mills, Nina Kraviz, Ben UFO, and Joy Orbison will showcase why they have been Dekmantel regulars for years. Brazilian maestro’s Hermeto Pascoal and Azymuth go hand in hand on the bill with house favorites Moodyman and John Talabot. Young DJ talents Palms Trax and Shanti Celeste are confirmed and a Dutch delegation is formed by Tom Trago, Young Marco, and Fatima Yamaha.
During daytime, the festival will take place in the Western part of Sao Paulo at the hippodrome The Jockey Club, known for its beautiful late-thirties Brazilian architecture. A complementary night program will touch grounds at Fabriketa, an industrial factory with an open-air courtyard located in the district of Brás.
Together with local partner Gop Tun, Dekmantel will welcome artists that are right in the forefront of contemporary electronic music, while also tapping generously from the great source that is Brazilian music. An overview of all artists confirmed so far and a sneak peak of the festival site of Dekmantel Festival São Paulo can be found in this announcement-video made by Thomas Traum.
