Airbound festival launchPosted: 18.05.2009
This Friday, Nightflight plays host to the latest in a series of launch parties for the Airbound festival, due to take place over the August bank holiday weekend. Just in its second year, Airbound is definitely one of Bodytonic’s more ambitious efforts, and joins the rapidly increasing number of Irish music festivals. The crucial difference? It’s not actually being held in Ireland: instead, a select group of Irish musicians, DJs and clubbers will descend upon the small Croatian fishing village of Petrcane. Though priority is given to Irish acts, such as Jape, Chymera, R.S.A.G, and Mano le Tough, there’s also a strong international contingent, including the Berlin DJs Ben Klock and Marcel Dettman, and the legendary Alexander Robotnick. If that’s not enough, there’s also daily boat parties, where you can simultaneously dance to some of the best techno around and sail across the Adriatic. Catch a taste of what’s to come tonight at the Button Factory.
