It's time to get to know the complete line-up of the fourth edition of DGTL São Paulo, which will take place in 2020 at the Anhembi Pavilion, on May 1.
Once again with the intention of innovating and combining different styles and sounds, we bring to Brazil for the first time the long awaited live PA of Paul Kalkbrenner - one of the greatest techno names of all time and also the star of the film Berlin Calling ( Hannes Stöhr - 2008), which portrays Berlin's club culture scene. The track Sky & Sand, made in partnership with Brother Fritz, reached millions of people around the world and contributed to their performances filling stadiums in several cities in Europe.
Another unprecedented attraction is the presentation by Orbital, a duo formed in 1989 by the brothers Paul and Phill Hartnoll, considered pioneers in live performances for track music. The hit Chime, from 1989, was considered an anthem during the time of the boom of raves and squat parties in England in the early 90's. Along with other bands, like The Prodigy and Chemical Brothers, they were responsible for bringing electronic music from Great Britain to the mainstream.
Other novelties are the back-to-back presentations, which take place in a rotation format between two artists during the same set. Jennifer Cardini - mentor of the label Correspondant - arrives in Brazil for the first time to perform alongside Âme - one of the heads behind Innervisions. Steffi and Virginia, known for running the long weekends at Panorama Bar (Berlin) are also in the line-up, as well as the energetic junction between the main exponent of techno in the German capital, Ellen Allien, and Matrixxman, one of the references of gender in the USA. Germans Ben Klock and Marcel Dettmann, respected worldwide for showing a darker side of contemporary techno will also be side by side.
The line-up also features long-awaited performances such as Len Faki and Dax J, who return to the festival after memorable performances in the 2018 edition, in addition to the Rebekah, a veteran exponent of Birmingham techno and The Black Madonna, representative of the Chicago house and techno.
The Dutchman Gerd Janson and the Colombian Julianna Cuervo also return to the country after good memories at DGTL São Paulo - this time to play alongside names like the Tom Trago, Ben UFO, Agoria and Jeremy Underground, who will make their debut in the Brazilian version of the event.
The local team remains well represented and will be composed of prominent names in the national and international scenarios, such as Renato Cohen, Victor Ruiz, Vermelho, Vermelho Wonder (live), Teto Preto (live), Barbara Boeing, Mari Herzer, Martinelli (live) , Tessuto, and also for new revelations, such as DJ Malka - trans cultural producer and agitator who has stood out in the nights of São Paulo and Belo Horizonte. DGTL São Paulo also welcomes L'Homme Statue, a project by French multi-artist based in Brazil, Loïc Koutana, where he acts as a singer and is preparing to release the album Ser.
