Austria’s premier electronic music festival Electric Love is returning to the picturesque countryside of Salzburg this July for an epic three-day celebration. Taking place at the iconic Salzburgring, the festival is surrounded by breathtaking mountains, lakes and green forests. 2019 will mark the massive 7th annual edition of the renowned event, which will welcome more than 180,000 local and global visitors. Showcasing more than 160 acts across eight genre-specific stages, this is one party you don’t want to miss!
The centrepiece and the heart of Electric Love Festival; The Main Stage. This stage showcases everything from EDM to bass, to the harder styles and so much more. The unique main stage designs are carefully crafted each year to create the perfect platform for the biggest acts in the world while maintaining the Electric Love feel. This year’s main stage will be headlined by Afrojack, Axwell, Diplo, DJ Snake, Eric Prydz, Marshmello, Oliver Heldens, Tiesto and Timmy Trumpet. Also making main stage appearances will be the likes of Chocolate Puma, Felice, Lucas and Steve, NWYR, Tchami X Malaa, Yellow Claw and more.
The second biggest stage of the festival and equally anticipated is the world-famous Q-Dance stage. This year, Electric Love will celebrate the 5th year anniversary with harder styles partner Q-Dance. Bringing the iconic RAM Stage to the Austrian countryside, the Dutch harder styles giant will welcome all the hottest acts in the harder styles. This year, the RAM will be home to the likes of Brennan Heart, Code Black, Coone, Headhunterz, Phuture Noize, Psyko Punx, Sound Rush and more. There will also be an exclusive live performance from Sefa, who will close out the stage on Friday.
Club Circus is perhaps the most versatile stage at Electric Love. On Wednesday night, it will play home to the official Warm Up Party; welcoming the popular acts such as Garmiani, Salvatore Ganacci, Darren Styles and Da Tweekaz. On Thursday, the stage will be transformed into the Pussy Lounge freestyle stage, hosted by b2s. You can see the likes of Sub Sonik, Dark-Raver, Isaac, Paul Elstak and more on Thursday night. Friday and Saturday will once again see Club Circus transformed into a bass, dubstep and Drum & Bass haven; featuring the talents of Netsky, NGHTMRE, Holy Goof, LNY TNZ, Jauz, Valentino Khan and more.
For the first time at Electric Love, there will be a brand new stage dedicated exclusively for techno. In previous years, techno has been featured on the final day at the Club Circus stage; but this year, Electric Love is bringing you three days filled with over 30 of the top techno acts. You can catch Sven Väth, UMEK, Pan Pot, Kladuia Gawlas, Enrico Sangiuliano and many more at this brand new spectacle.
Another brand new addition is the Uptempo Cage, a high BPM deluxe stage hosted by Shutdown Festival. Celebrating only the fastest of the harder styles, this is the only place you will find 200bpm on Friday and Saturday. Catch the likes of Andy The Core, D-Fence, Greazy Puzzy Fuckerz, Super Trash Bros, The Sickest Squad and more at this brand new stage.
Finally, it wouldn’t be Electric Love without the iconic Heineken Starclub and the diverse stage will return to the festival this summer, bringing the hottest EDM, RnB and rap sounds; as well as everything else in between. With enough space for 1500 party people, this is the perfect stage to discover new music among old favourites.
In addition to a star-studded lineup, Electric Love also offers a number of on-site activities. The famous Food Corner, located on the festival infield, offers a wide variety of local and international cuisines. You can find everything from Austrian street food specialities to Asian, Italian, American and more; as well as vegan and gluten-free options. You can also find a huge merchandise megastore, located in the centre of the festival grounds, as well as a piercing studio, chill out areas, bars, carnival rides and more!
