UPDATE 27th May: We’re sorry to announce that SBTRKT will be unable to play at Spring Festival 2013 due to personal reasons. Please see below for a statement from the artist. However, we can now tell you that COMA will perform live instead.
“SBTRKT regrets to inform all his fans that unfortunately he is unable to DJ at the Electric Beats Festival due to a close family bereavement. He wishes to convey his apologies and will endeavour to come back.”
A week today marks the beginning of Austria’s Spring Festival, and Electronic Beats is teaming up with the event to present the opening night as part of the EB 2013 festival series. With a concert from Chilly Gonzales and DJ sets by Mark Ronson & Riton, plus live sets from Kompakt’s pop-infused electronic duo COMA and Copenhagen’s art-pop weirdos Rangleklods, the night promises to be memorable. Therefore we are especially pleased to announce that EB will be hosting an exclusive live stream of Chilly Gonzales’ entire Solo Piano II concert live from Graz’s Helmut List Halle, building on the success of last week’s live stream from EB Festival Cologne.
The stream will kick off at 9 pm (CET) on May 29th exclusively on ElectronicBeats.net, and finish at approximately 10:15 pm, the end of Gonzales set. The rest of the opening night line-up will not be streamed.
Those of you who have tickets and plan to attend in the flesh, please be aware that there is limited seating capacity on a first come, first served basis.
The Twitter, Instagram, and Google+ hashtag is #EBF13.
