Les Plages Électroniques is back August 4th to 6th, 2023 on the beach at the foot of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes.
It is a famously forward thinking festival on the stunning seafront and this year has a new outdoor stage as well as a new space indoors so party people can enjoy the event without suffering from the high heat.
This year the line-up again is unreal and here are five acts to catch:
Tale of Us
This Italian duo have fomented their own unique sound world – dark, emotional, melodic and progressive techno that has taken them all over the world. It comes on their Afterlife label and at the parties of the same name.
Armin Van Buuren
It’s been a whirlwind year for Armin van Buuren, between the release of his eighth studio album ‘Feel Again’, headlining sets at Ultra and EDC, a China tour, and now, his brand new single ‘Motive’. Expect to hear all that and more from the trance innovator.
Mind Against will no doubt drop some proper melodic and dynamic soundscapes. The Italian duo really know how to serve up a journey of emotion and melodic colour. Expect some spine tingling synth sounds and driving grooves.
Sam is a global techno innovator who has been at the forefront for years. He has released on key labels from Plus8 to Drumcode and Cocoon and is never far from the top of the Beatport charts. He runs the JAM label and has played every major club and festival in the world so knows what it takes to move the crowd, no matter how big.
The Blessed Madonna
This famous US star started out selling rave tapes in her native Kentucky, went on to be a booker at Chicago’s legendary Smart Bar and is now a globally renowned DJ with a big, party ready sound, epic disco selections, driving house and techno grooves, and a real dexterity in the booth.
