Love Family Park, Germany’s oldest open-air techno festival, has rolled out the names set to command its three stages on 28th July. Nina Kraviz, Amelie Lens, Loco Dice and Richie Hawtin are just a few of the techno figureheads set to spin during the 12-hour party.
The line-up is completed by Chris Liebing, Pan-Pot, Dixon, Maceo Plex, Ricardo Villalobos, Adriatique, Seth Troxler, Sven Väth, Solomun, andhim, Boris Brejcha, Butch, Dominik Eulberg (live), Fritz Kalkbrenner (live), Karotte, Lexy and K-Paul (live), Moonbootica and Oliver Koletzki.
It's no secret that before Loco Dice became one of the world's most revered techno selectors he was brought up on a strict diet of hip-hop.
Clearly, his appreciation of hip-hop and now grime has never gone away as he's announced a new side project, FKD, inspired by both genres.
The collaborative group has been created by Loco Dice with his longtime friends Frizzo and Kobe Hodgson, who all share a strong appreciation of hip-hop and its many forms.
Neopop returned for a 12th edition in 2017, celebrating all things techno in Viana Do Castelo near the city of Porto in northern Portugal.
Nestled between the walls of an old fort and the harbour (only a wire fence separates the toilets from a drop into the water below!), the event's two stages and capacity of between 5000-8000 people, depending on day, means it's an intimate a gathering as is possible in the current climate of massive mega-fests.
Hyte has locked in a special set from legendary selector Carl Cox to help celebrate Loco Dice's forthcoming birthday.
Taking place on Wednesday 9th August, it will be a rare opportunity to see Cox spinning at Amnesia.
The line-up also includes Loco Dice, Chris Liebing, Cuartero, Dewalta, Tobi Nueman Yaya and Caleb Calloway.
Cox, Dice and Liebing will be holding down Amnesia's iconic Terrace, whilst the rest will be playing in the Club room.
Elrow’s 2017 expansion has been slowed due to disagreements with local officials in Salou, ES. At the recommendation of local politicians and stakeholders, Elrow’s 15th July Friends & Family festival has been cancelled.
HYTE has locked Loco Dice, Floorplan (aka Robert Hood), Ellen Allien, Pan-Pot, and Matrixxman for their 2017 Amnesia Ibiza residency.

Cuartero, Benny Rodrigues, Henrik Schwarz, Danny Tenaglia, Radio Slave, Erick Morillo, Steve Rachmad, Bambounou, Tobi Neumann, and Culoe De Song complete the house and techno bill presented by the German production company.
International Music Summit (IMS) Ibiza has added another 20 speakers to their roster for this year's event, set to kick off from 24th through 26th May at the Hard Rock Hotel on the White Isle.
DJs including Nicole Moudaber, Loco Dice, and DVS1 will be joining the speakers list for 2017, alongside leaders from Ultra Records, Playstation, Big Beat Records and Warner Music.
Hyte will return to White Isle for a third season in a row in 2017, heading back to the German party brand's spiritual home of Amnesia.
The Hyte crew will host another 16 weeks of Wednesday parties at the famous Ibiza venue this year, with previous residents including Loco Dice, Chris Liebing and Pan-Pot slated to return for yet another season.
New additions to the Hyte family include Dutch DJ export Benny Rodrigues and London’s own Archie Hamilton who will both join the brand for the first time on the island.
The line-up now includes Marco Carola, Sven Vath, Solomun and Loco Dice, who are behind Ibiza's four biggest underground parties (Music On, Cocoon, Solomun +1 & Hyte).
Chris Liebing also makes his debut at the Romanian festival, while Jamie Jones and Dubfire will be making a return.
