This year at Ade 2018, Dockyard Festival and Mystic Garden Festival join forces for an unprecedented, 12 hour 2-in-1 festival on October 20th. Headliners include Sven Väth, Len Faki, Paco Osuna, Apollonia, Ben Sims, Blawan, Robert Hood, Dax J, Secret Cinema, Egbert (live), Matador (live), Luigi Madonna, Skream, Enrico Sangiuliano, Dave Clarke and The Advent & Industrialyzer plus a range of essential underground brands.
Two contrasting concepts, one terrain, one entrance: this will be a collision of The Mystic Garden’s glittering fairyland and Dockyard’s brazen, industrial world to make for something brand new and immersive. After entering through the main entrance, you will be given the choice of two gates—the Golden Gates of the Mystic Garden and the portal into Dockyard, behind which you can experience all of the musical and theatrical thrills of both concepts. You can chose a space brimming with magical creatures and escapist music or thunderous, industrial dystopia, you are sure for a memorable experience. Or you can chose not to chose and wander back and forth between the two worlds. It’s up to you.
The line up this year features returning favourites as well as hot new names from the worlds of deep house, tech house and techno, because Dockyard and Mystic Garden are about evolving and looking forward, not just repeating the same tricks over and over. There will be some very special guests at the event that will be announced soon, plus Sven Vath, Len Faki, Paco Osuna, Apollonia, Ben Sims, BLAWAN, Robert Hood, Dax J, Secret Cinema, Egbert (live), Matador (live), Luigi Madonna, Skream, Enrico Sangiuliano, Dave Clarke and The Advet & Industrialyzer, while partners include Cocoon, Mindshake, Machine, Terminal One with Dave Clarke’s _Unsubscribe_, Eats Everything’s “ATE” and GEM, plus many more.
This special ADE 2018 edition of Mystic Garden and Dockyard will exceed all previous splendour and will be full of colourful surprises and spectacular performances that will surpass everyone’s wildest expectations.
