We Are Electric Weekender is all about bass: a line-up with artists from drum and bass to dubstep, house, techno and beyond, ensures that every fan of electronic music will find what they are looking for.
Ever since their first indoor event, back in 2013, We Are Electric has been pushing drum and bass. Back in 2013, they welcomed Black Sun Empire and as the years went by, drum and bass became a bigger part of We Are Electric. As the festival grows, drum and bass grows with it.
With stage hosts such as Korsakov, Major League and Blackout in the past, they stepped up their game last year and invited some big players: RAMPAGE was received with open arms and curated one of the 3 days on the second biggest stage: The Snare Stage. The other hosting partners were Hospital Records/Hospitality and Netsky & Friends. Not only huge stage hosts were present; The Prodigy was one of the headliners, unfortunately for the last time, as frontman and legend Keith Flint died earlier this year.
Although last year’s vibe is hard to summarize in only 3 minutes, check-out the aftermovie.
For 2019, WAE decided to rejoin forces with RAMPAGE, this time for three days long. RAMPAGE is one of the exclusive stage hosts, among Spinnin’ Records, HYTE and Future House Music. RAMPAGE, which celebrated its 10-year anniversary last month, with a sold-out weekender in Antwerps’ Sportpaleis (30,000 tickets!), is famous for its extreme light shows and insane line-ups. It brings together the best acts, of both dubstep and drum and bass.
All visitors can enjoy the festival until 3 AM on Friday and Saturday, and 1 AM on Sunday. With those times, the festival really distinguishes itself from others, outdoor festivals that go on past midnight are quite rare in the Netherlands. The campsite is open from Friday to Monday.
Things you should totally check-out according to us?
Everything really! We don’t know where to start, there is so much to choose from! There really is something for everyone. We Are Electric and RAMPAGE made sure they covered the whole spectrum.
20 Years Of Black Sun Empire ‘Past – Present – Future’ looks very promising. The group has been praised and are even referred to as “The kings of all things neuro”. They run three independent record labels and have released five full-length albums.
For more old school vibes definitely check-out 25 Years of V Recordings: Bryan Gee, Jumpin Jack Frost & Dillinja. If you’re looking for the set with all the ultimate festival bangers, we’d recommend Wilkinson b2b Sub Focus, Metrik and Maduk.
Don’t plan ahead too much, just see where the music takes you!
