Founder of Festival Svojšice, in cooperation with Beat Promotion team, announce the headliner. It will be one of the most wanted DJs in the world, Russian music producer Nina Kraviz who will perform with her guests at Shaman Techno Main Stage. After more than three years of effort to make her booking, the organizers successfully fulfilled their dream.
Kraviz fell under the spell of house music during the mid-'90s through radio. A few years later, she moved to Moscow for the sake of studying dentistry, and was briefly part of a trio called MySpaceRocket. The group released one 12", 2007's "Amok," a lean house track with a deep bassline and Kraviz's breathy vocals; the B-side featured a version from U.K. DJ legend Greg Wilson. Kraviz subsequently went solo and made a splash in 2009, when she issued productions on Efdemin's Naïf, Jus-Ed's Underground Quality, and Matt Edwards' Rekids. The following year, Kraviz issued another handful of singles, including a sound clash with Sascha Funke that appeared on BPitch Control. "Ghetto Kraviz" was her lone 2011 single and set up the release of her first album, a self-titled set for REKIDS. "Ghetto Kraviz" would prove to be an enduring club track, and was remixed numerous times throughout the decade. Following additional singles on Rekids and Rosa, as well as the Mr. Jones EP in 2013, Kraviz founded the Trip label in 2014. Her installment of !K7's DJ-Kicks series was released in early 2015. Another mix CD, Fabric 91, followed in late 2016.
The next edition of Festival Svojšice will be held on June 23, 2018, at a traditional venue in the Svojšice area near Pardubice. Festival Svojsice promises a strong line up and will surely delight fans of techno, hard techno and drum & bass music.
The novelty of the festival is a newly created story of almighty shaman, according to which the future shape of the festival will unfold. Festival fans have already been able to notice this new form on the festival graphics, the names of individual stages, and also they can look forward the festival area itself, where everything else will be decorated in this spirit.
New stage names will also be held in this original Native American style. Already mentioned Shaman Stage will cover the techno DJs, Ritual Stage will be dedicated to drum and bass, and Trans Stage for the hard tech fans. Other artists performing on these stages will be disclosed soon on facebook fanpage of Festival Svojšice. The cheapest tickets to this legendary festival with Nina Kraviz are in presale only until the end of January! Then the price of the tickets will be rising.
