Nina Kraviz is among the DJs set to play in a marry quarry this summer as part of Nextones festival.

Taking place in Cava Le Beola di Monte, a historic quarry of marble and granite in northern Italy, the festival has been running since 2014 with a focus on music, visual art installations and exploring the local environment.

Also set to DJ at the festival are the likes of Timedance’s Batu and Laurel Halo. Meanwhile, Amnesia Scanner, Sinjin Hawke & Zora Jones, Caterina Barbieri & Ruben Spini, and ex-COIL member Drew McDowall & Florence To will each deliver A/V live sets.

For this year, its sixth edition, Nextones has enlisted Milan-based cultural sustainability agency, Threes, in handling the festival’s art direction, which will include commissioned photography by Delfino Sisto Legnani.

Nextones festival takes place from 26th - 29th July. For more information and tickets visit the festival’s website.

There are plenty of festivals taking place in unique locations this year, with one happening in a 180-year-old industrial mine and other 80 feet beneath the surface of an Icelandic glacier.
