18th Antaris Project Festival 13.–16. July 2012 • near Berlin Laugh & dance against war! With 18 editions in a row ANTARIS near Berlin is the oldest name on the Trance festival circuit. The cult character of the festival is well deserved For nearly two decades now a highly motivated crew is doing everything they can to present a top class event to the audience that comes from all over the world. The decoration is highly psychedelic, every year with new, innovative artists and the lineup reads like a who´s who of the Psychedelic Trance Scene. ANTARIS is always exploring new soundscapes, so you will hear all styles of Trance, from Full On to Forest to Electro. The Location of ANTARIS is truly spectacular: the airport where the visionary Otto Lilienthal once started the first human attempts at flying. Today, at the same place, thousands of Neo-Hippies, families, New Age Visionaries, Yoga-Freaks, Berlin Clubbers and World Travellers get together to dance and „fly“ peacefully on two big dancefloors with more than 30 Liveacts and 70 Djs. On the decks this year will be, amongst others, Hilight Tribe (France),Eat Static (UK), Cosmosis, playing a special Antaris set with Ajja (CH) , Altruism, Burn in Noise and First Stone (all Brazil), Fractal Cowboys (US), Flooting Grooves (South Africa), Green Nuns of the Revolution (UK), Hutti Heita (Norway), Kerlivin (Taiwan), Loud and Perfect Stranger ( ISR), Onkel Dunkel (DK), Procs (SW), Rev (NL), Salakavala (FIN) and Sensient (AUS). Both floors will run from Friday to Monday, the mainfloor until Monday evening! For relaxation there is the Ambient Area and the Spiritual Circle with yoga workshops, massages and the sacred fire. There is also a kids’ space, a market area, performances and the trademark Antaris Fireworks. So ANTARIS offers everything a magical festival needs! ANT-ARIS means: against war! Dance for Peace, Friendship and Freedom! Reduced presale tickets can be bought on the website.
