New techno festival set for historic Estonian quarry and former prison grounds

Moonland festival has locked DVS1, Octo Octa (Live), Nastia, Dana Ruh and more for its first edition

This August, Estonia’s historic Rummu quarry will host the inaugural Moonland festival.

The stunning, picturesque location, which has served as both a limestone and Vasalemma marble mine as well as grounds for a now abandoned prison, will become a home for a unique electronic music experience between 3rd and 5th August.

The first round of acts announced to play the Unesco World Heritage site near Estonia’s capital, Tallinn include dark techno maestro DVS1, Nastia, celestial percussive house producer Octa Octa, minimal techno selector Dana Ruh and many more.

Moonland will feature approximately 40 acts over its six stages as well as several immense light installations, audio visual components, 3D mapped projections on the surrounding landscape and immersive experiences.

“Moonland as a concept speaks to us as a tribute to the arid landscape created by time and human strife,” the festival's official statement reads. “Conquered by the love of music and our fellow humankind”

It’s not the first time Rummu has hosted an electronic music festival. Last year, the wonderful Into The Valley with Craig Richards, Axel Boman, Honey Dijon and Midland.
