Early next month we take up where we left off the festivals new home grounds, The Ostrich Ranch which will be transformed into an immersive space of art and decor fit for a mega audio-visual extravaganza taking place across two stages. While the lineup – from start to finish- is a swelter, we decided to take a closer look at our top six Main Stage acts not to be missed next month. In no particular order here they are:

Having torn apart stages at massive events such as Tomorrowland, Electric Zoo & Universo Parallelo and more, it’s a no-brainer why Hot Bullet – also one of this year’s headliners – makes it onto our list of acts not to miss on this year’s main stage.
DAS KAPITAL // SA

PLASTIC ROBOTS // BRA
Best described as a project that seeks to explore the sounds and spheres of Techno and Minimal and the space in between, Plastic Robots does so with innovation and originality.
The duo’s -Nando Scheffer and Dan Project- music production is characterized by a strong bass line and subtle, obscure audio elements resulting in an intense, unique delivery and an engaging atmosphere from start to finish.
