WAE 2018 is all about showcasing live music with an electronic soul. We’ve highlighted five artists across the musical spectrum that you should definitely catch on the Sunday of our epic Weekender in Velder Woods.
Artist: Martin Garrix Stage: Crash
Superstar, Martin Garrix, will be playing his exclusive Dutch summer date at WAE this July. Ranked #1 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs list for 2016 and 2017, Garrix has come a long way from deciding to mix after watching the TV broadcast of Tiesto perform at the 2004 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony in Athens. The unbelievably talented producer and DJ will deliver nothing short of a jaw-dropping set in Velder Woods. We can’t wait for this one!
Leading a wave of new school European drum’n’bass talent with his blend of uplifting, melancholic melodies and heavy dance floor beats, Netsky has stood in the limelight for nearly a decade. Signed exclusively to Hospital Records in late 2009; his first release, ‘Memory Lane,’ was quickly followed by his chart topping debut album, ‘Netsky.’ Since then, the Belgian artist has consistently delivered a potent mix of dance floor anthems, vocal-led classics, and that clean-cut new jungle sound, which has become his trademark. The revered artist will invite an eclectic group of friends to perform on his very own stage at WEA. Make sure you’re there for his headlining set!
Artist: Paul Kalkbrenner
The German DJ-producer will be taking us Back To The Future on Day 3 of WAE at the Pulse stage. Prepare for a techno deep dive that explores tracks representing the historical rise of techno in Berlin after the Fall of the Wall in 1989.
Artist: Josh Wink
Ovum label co-founder and Philadelphia born and based DJ-producer, Josh Wink, embraces a diligent work ethic, a spiritual mindset, and a self-taught mastery of dance floor devastation. Back in 1995, Wink scored three consecutive European smashes, which unquestionably took dance music to a dizzying plateau. The ‘Higher State of Consciousness’ producer has spun at prestigious nightspots around the world for over 20 years. He’s always stayed true to his roots, never sold out, maintained his integrity and has always returned home to his beloved Philadelphia. Josh Wink is the TRUTH. See for yourself on WAE Day 3.
Artist: Lane 8
The Anjunadeep staple will put you in just the right mood on the Sunday of WAE. Denver-based DJ-producer, Daniel Goldstein AKA Lane 8, makes smoothly flowing, melodic house music. Whether he’s working with guest vocalists or crafting exquisite instrumentals, he always creates songs that gently ebb and flow, functioning as emotional journeys rather than mere club tracks. Drift away with Lane 8 at the Ride stage on Day 3. We promise you won’t regret it.
