Cologne’s new Springinsfeld Festival is ready to launch later this month, with doors opening to punters on Saturday 19th August, and the party running through the night.
The event boasts an enviable lineup, topped by tech house deity Solomun. Other names set to appear include Fritz Kalkbrenner, Don Diablo, Oliver Heldens, Yellow Claw, andhim, and Martin Solveig, who found himself back in DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs list last time round after a few years out.
Run by the crew behind the Bootshaus club and Prookaville festival, both also in Cologne, the party will take place in Fühlinger See, a series of connected artificial lakes spanning 100 hectares in the suburb of Fühlingen, just south of the city proper. Three main stages have been confirmed, dedicated to house, tech house, and bass, with the promise of letting revellers take a break from everyday life, its stresses and strains, and venture off into this urban wilderness to find pristine waters, unspoilt meadows, unadulterated hedonism, and the kind of side attractions and food offerings you’d expect from a major outdoor session.
Tickets are priced at a bargain £59 per person, and we’ve included the trailer below to really whet the appetite. For more information, check the official website, here.
