The festival has also revealed a bespoke projection mapping show in collaboration with cutting edge media collective OUCHHH, with a visual fusion of history and innovation set to illuminate the towering walls of Cave Romane.
Gates of Agartha comes from the same minds behind the wondrous Echoes from Agartha experience in Cappadocia, Turkey. It is the first of their new destination series events which explore mystical and mythical places around the world where art, culture and history collide.
Joseph Capriati is a bona fide techno tastemaker who has been a resident on the legendary BBC 1 Radio and always shows the breadth and depth of his sound across his sets and productions. He plays a wide range of house, techno, groovy, personal influences and much more having made a big impact in Ibiza at Amnesia with his carefully curated Metamorfosi parties. They were immersive showcases of his skills named after his wide-ranging debut album Metamorfosi on his own Redimension label.
This all goes down in a spectacular location – Cave Romane is a roman quarry that was used for centuries by the Romans to extract a type of stone called Istrian limestone. It was a vital material in the construction of many important buildings in the Roman Empire, including the Colosseum in Rome and features immersive and cutting edge lighting technology as well as world class sounds systems.
As well as the music, the historic city offers a wealth of local culture to explore from ancient architecture to modern marketplaces, local cuisines and so much more.
This is a magical escape to an ancient world but with a contemporary soundtrack from the very sharp end of the melodic house and techno spectrum. Tickets available here.
