Spring Festival Graz Update: Chilly Gonzales will be streamed live and COMA replaces SBTRKT

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.”

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.
