On the 25th of August, music lovers will converge to the Middenvijver site, a stone’s throw from Antwerp’s city center, to discover the wide spectrum of electronic music varying from techno and house to ambient and future jazz during Ampere Open Air. The one day festival will feature more than 50 artists divided over 5 stages and will be teaming up with the infamous Boiler Room as a stage host and live-streaming partner.
The first edition of the festival will feature iconic DJ’s like Jeff Mills, Len Faki, Marcel Dettmann and Recondite. Newly announced headliners include the house legend and co-founder of Innervisions Dixon and the Miami-based owner of the infamous Life and Death label DJ Tennis.
Other highlights of the festival will be an hommage to nightlife pioneer and originator of the famous sound of Belgium Yves Deruyter, the Russian-born artist and dance researcher Valentin Tszin and the Bulgarian, Brussel-based producer, DJ and vocalist and Ampere’s resident Gabriella Vergilov.
Boiler Room will broadcast live from Ampere Open Air 2019 on the 25th of August. That makes her the second Bulgarian DJ after KiNK to be broadcasted on Boiler Room format. “OMG I dreamt for this moment! I did. I remember the exact date and setting when I made that wish. Very thrilled!”, posted Gabriella on her Facebook page.
Earlier this month, Gabriella Vergilov will play amongst The Chemical Brothers, Charlotte de Witte, Tiga and Monoloc at Lokerse Feesten in Belgium.
