Paradise City Festival announce the music partners that will shape their 2024 edition

As well as a host of returning brands there will also be a clutch of new additions to ensure the Paradise City Festival between June 28-30th will again be one of the most talked about events of the summer. First to make their debut at the picturesque Rebauld Castle site is Brussels Calling. A platform designed to showcase the best local and national talent that Brussels and Belgium has to offer, being wide remit in their music policy, Brussels Calling aims to offer a unique cross section of sounds that includes all facets of the electronic spectrum.

Next is newcomer party brand Mo Mamba and with the travelled Blck Mamba as its driving force the hybrid genre DJ will be injecting serious venom into her stage programming. Flexing her Nigerian roots, there are large doses of African flavours etched into her grooves and with her being a Rinse UK resident her chops are beyond reproach. For an example of these skills behind the decks you can check out her debut on esteemed stream show HÖR.

Providing the high energy soundtrack will be Modul_air and their own events are not for the faint hearted. Combining the ever evolving landscape of techno in all its many variants they are a Belgian institution. With sell out events as close by as their huge NYE event at Flanders Expo Center this collective caters for the harder end of that spectrum and with such a rave lineage the Belgian heads cannot get enough. 

Hangar are no stranger to large scale events themselves, they have delivered a number of massive parties during 2023 that has included mainstage artists Solomun, Adriatique, Kolsch, Stephan Bodzin, and a historic b2b between Job Jobse and Palm Trax. It is a certainty that the stage production and lineup will be fitting for the occasion.

Taking pride of place at the Castle Stage’s Saturday session was Gay Haze and their undeniable energy coupled with their winning musical formula this is sure to be another smash hit. With a stunning back catalogue of events under their belt the intimate dancing experience dovetails perfectly with the Paradise City ethos of anything goes. 2023 saw performances from Job Jobse, OK Williams, ISAbella, and of course the ever present Gay Haze co-founder Fais Le Beau.

Returning for 2024 are hotshot promoters and small, but perfectly clubbing institute La Cabane and with the wealth of musical gold that they regularly call upon there is little doubt that their stage at this year’s Paradise City Festival will be unmissable. Last year’s stage takeover saw some of the best sets of the weekend in Vitess and his raucous live performance, Shanti Celeste, and a b2b from Alia and Driss Bennis. Prior to that and since, La Cabane have not rested on their laurels as they have grown to become one of the most respected promoters in Europe with the likes of Roman Fluegel, Per Hammar, Charonne, Sugar Free, and DJ Python all joining their ranks. 

Nico Morano will again be bringing his cast of friends to the serenely lush green fields of Paradise City Festival and after the absolute roadblock experienced during his set expectations are high for his return. His mainstage house sounds were lapped up by the eager crowd and aided by Zombies In Miami, Cormac, Konstantin Sibold, Vhyce, Mosley Jr., and Yulia Niko there will be more surprises in store for the 2024 edition.

Event series and collective Not Your Techno have been a shoe-in to make their return after their storming debut at last year’s weekender. Providing a no-nonsense approach to techno yet never compromising on their inclusive vibe. From the deeper end of the scale from regular Timmerman to peak time bangers from a range of international guests such as Marie Montexier, and with distinct reference to feminism they are a welcome addition to this year’s journey.

Even though the iconic Silo Club sadly closed its doors back in 2011, the team behind the fabled nightspot has been maintaining its impeccable name in the realms of house and techno. With their previous events hitting some of the high points in the initial minimal house influx the calibre of guests and more importantly musical direction explains why Silo is so highly prized in Belgium. Having not featured at Paradise City for a few years their return will be greeted with open arms by all.

With a clear ethos in mind, Soulful Sessions aim is to provide the most uplifting vibes possible and that can come via disco, soulful house, and upbeat jams from across the ages, as long as it has that funk. This direction is epitomised by their programming at last year’s stage takeover which included Moodymann, Palm Trax, as well as Bibi Seck, Charmaine & DTM Funk, and Salute. Sell out open-air’s, boat parties, and events at the likes of Fuse Brussels have all borne witness to the smiling faces at Soulful Sessions and Paradise City will again be rocking to these feel good vibes.

Last but not least, we will be returning to this special festival to re-up our connection with Klub Dramatik. After last year’s edition which saw performances in the fabled Forest Stage from Saoirse, Quest b2b Christian AB, Matthias, Melody, Walrus, Ben Balance, and Peirro you will want to keep an eye on our next lineup announcement.

When the beats become a little too much, we know, it can happen sometimes, Paradise Down By The Lake is your solace in amongst all the fun. As the name suggests, the lake that acts as a centre point to the festival will be your mirage to calm your mind and enjoy the surroundings of the historic Rebauld Castle.
