In the past three years, Apgrade Weekend has been reserved for the beginning of September – somewhat a finale of the open-air party season. After three editions in which audience had the opportunity to listen to the leaders of the electronic music scene, such as: Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin, Solomun, Amelie Lens, Dixon, Tale of Us and numerous other. Next, the fourth edition of Apgrade week will be held at the very beginning of the summer- 1st and 2nd June in Barutana! From September 6th to 8th, the fifth anniversary of the Apgrade Weekend will be taking place in the trench below the Military Museum at Kalemegdan fortress.
The fourth edition of Apgrade week will be hosting Miss Kittin, a French electro diva whose sound dominates the world scene today and the vice champion of the latest RA chart- Jackmaster. On the second of June, German DJ and producer Kristian Beyer- one part of DJ duo Ame, who will present a DJ set will share the decks with Answer Code Request. Thanks to a very original production in recent years, Answer Code Request became a true guard of the Berlin techno scene, and his new album “Gens” has premiered in Berghain, the most famous techno club. Innervisions, the symbol of modern Berlin and possibly the world’s largest electronic publishing house in this decade has been specially designed by Dixon and the duo Ame.
