After moving around venues in London and hosting their first anniversary at the Steelyard last year, Stump has finally made the venue its permanent home hosting Raresh and Cezar under the arch last February.
The layout plays a major role in the future artistic direction of Stump. Taking inspiration from the trippy visuals found at Romanian events, the arch and its brick walls bring out the talents of visual artist – Coté.
As for the lineup, Stump fly over Petre Inspirescu of a:rpia:r as their headline guest. As one of the pioneers of the scene, Petre aka Pedro, is known for his subtle and refined productions as well as his marathon sets alongside Raresh and Rhadoo as RPR. One peak time set at Sunwaves on Stage 4 wasn’t enough for Petre, as he returned to put together one of the highlights of the festival on the final day.
Another star of Sunwaves was Stump’s own Cally. Named as one of Trommel’s rising stars earlier this year, Cally has recently made the move back to Romania after a short stint in London. Taking inspiration from the likes of Rhadoo and Raresh, and now also fully part of the Sunrise roster, Cally is moving forward sharing the decks with his heroes on the biggest stages of them all. After settling down as a consistent resident by opening many of the Stump events and playing in the second room in February, Chrissy Hope completes the lineup.
Like the event in February, Stump continues onto the newly refurbished 93 Feet East for the after-party. With a special guest to be announced on the day, Stump has already confirmed Abisal (Vid b2b Georgiana Lucaci), Gabriel Amaru and resident thierry.
If you can go 5 days non-stop at Sunwaves, 18-hours should be a breeze…right?
Tickets for both events are available here.
