Heineken Balaton Sound is renowned for its stunning location right by Lake Balaton, a perfect holiday spot that allows you to relax and soak up the sun as well as dance the night away. It plays out across plenty of stages that all have their own look and feel and no other event in Europe does things on quite such a scale across the Main Stage with its vast LED wall; the house and techno oriented B my Lake stage and many more intimate stages that all come with high spec audio-visuals, lights and serious sound systems.
“With the newly announced performers, our goal is to offer a wide selection from the electronic music scene that is now clearly visible for the attendees of Heineken Balaton Sound,” started Anna Filutás, the festival’s project manager. As such, the festival will showcase both the mainstream elite of electronic music and the best of underground electronic music, significantly strengthening the lineup with increasingly popular hard techno and hardstyle artists with these newly announced names.
This latest wave of names will welcome Heineken Balaton Sound debutant Amelie Lens who returns after maternity leave and brings her dark techno magic, astral techno from the Ellum Audio boss and world renowned innovator Maceo Plex, while Drumcode label head Adam Beyer has been innovating in the techno world for many years. There is no show quite as special as the live soundtrack served up by Stephan Bodzin, and this year hard techno is having a resurgence and will be fully represented by Sara Landry, Trym and 999999999 on top of the already announced Nico Moreno.
Prepare for an electrifying convergence of cutting-edge musical talent featuring a myriad of genres within the house and techno realms. Leading the charge is the chart-topping vocal house sensation, MEDUZA, promising an unforgettable performance. Reinier Zonneveld will take the stage with his signature blend of hard-edge acid techno, delivering a live experience that pushes the boundaries of innovation.
Joining them are the Italian duo Mathame, renowned for their captivating melodic sounds, alongside Danish luminary Kölsch, who will transport listeners with his emotive compositions. FJAAK, the Berlin-based duo, will unleash their jacking club grooves, while techno aficionados can anticipate a special collaboration as Space 92 and POPOF present “Turbulences”. Adding to the immersive experience is Siona label head Miss Monique, who will enchant the crowd with her progressive sounds. Meanwhile, Brazilian Vintage Culture will deliver pulsating, bass-driven house beats, ensuring an electrifying atmosphere throughout the event. Further house and techno excellence will come from Alison Wonderland, Brina Knauss, Borgore and Sam Feldt
But the excitement doesn’t end here. The legendary Q-dance will take over the Main Stage, offering a showcase of unparalleled energy and passion. Featuring performances by The Qreator, Sound Rush, Ran-D, Warface, Sefa, and DV8, this takeover promises to be a spectacular finale, leaving attendees with memories to last a lifetime.
The countdown is on until music lockers embark on an endless adventure at Heineken Balaton Sound 2024, where a myriad of experiences await—walkabouts, fashion shows, sports, dance workshops, techno yoga, and more.
On top of that, several changes await visitors this year: the main entrance will be relocated, and the location of the main stage will change, providing a more comfortable space for the expected large audience. The festival will still include the 1 km long beach section that attracts many foreign visitors and features waterfront locations, beach parties, and comfortable relaxation with water games throughout the festival, day, and night.
“On the relocated main stage, the programs will entertain the audience until dawn, and on the last day, we will top it with a massive end show, presented by the outstanding and recurring Dutch Q-dance, showcasing the harder styles of electronic dance music,” revealed Anna Filutás.
This remarkable open-air celebration is a must-visit for festival enthusiasts, promising an unforgettable experience. There are plenty of camping options on site, or you can book a hotel in Zamárdi or Siofok, making it the ultimate summer holiday destination from 3 – 6 July 2024.
