It's been 25 years since the first ANTARIS took place in 1993. Two years later, it went on in giant strides, so that the fat anniversary party next year can happen. This year's 24th issue will give you a taste of what is to come next year. From 16th to 19th July 2018 the ANTARIS Crew will do their best to give you all you need for the eyes, the ears and the heart. On that date the ANTARIS UFO lands at the airfield Otto Lilienthal and brings together artists from all over the world, who create a parallel universe of sound, deco and love together.
Best place to replenish your exhausted reserves on the ANTARIS festival is the SPIRITUAL CIRCLE with Yoga, massages and workshops. Of course there will be a big market mile for shopping and feasting. The audience attending to the festival is highly international, relaxed and quite divers – just like the original spirit that is also the hallmark of the gathering. At night it gets down to party: The ANTARIS is a bombastic fluorescent blacklight festival. The Mainfloor transforms into the ANTARIS UFO and gives the dancers access to a parallel world. Buju and his team work during eight months on this year's festival decoration to set up a planet universe for you. Magic Mike and Micha from EPS create a mega-light show while Martin Stebbing realises a completely new stage design, including video mapping.
Of course the ANTARIS also impresses with its first-class musical concept. When things get faster and harder on the Mainfloor, the Alternative Floor is light and bright – and vice versa. Last year's innovation will be doubled this year: a fat three-hour set from Quadrasonic and a gig from Eat Static as an 8-point surround experience. For four days and three nights, the ingenious line-up guarantees so many more great moments: Best Progressive Trance is provided by long-time favorites Ace Ventura, Egorythmia and Morten Granau. In addition is waiting for you an old-school afternoon with Astral Projection and more. Forest will be supplied by Giuseppe, Uncle Dunkel and more; Astrix, Neuroplasm, Burn in Noise and Altruism will heat up the crowd with Full On.
There will also be a special for techno fans this year: Merv from Eat Static and Nektarios Meintanis from Martian Arts are bringing a live set to the stage together with their new project Strontium Dogs – without a computer and only with modular synthesizers. The chill-out is also full of creative acts. Perfect for relaxing!
Tickets in the presale are available through the website, which leads you to the ANTARIS shop of "Marandai". In Berlin's Goa-Store there are also ANTARIS T-shirts and hard tickets for the festival available.
117 years aviation history and since 2005 Antaris dance history at the oldest airfield in the world.
Otto Lilienthal Airfield in Stölln is not only a wonderful party space, it is also the oldest airfield in the world. Here is where the pioneer, Otto Lilienthal started the first started his first human gliding experiments. From the festival site near Gollenberg he made many daring flying experiences.
For the anniversary from “100 Jahre Menschenflug/100 years of human flights” on 23rd October 1989 the flight captain, Heinz-Dieter Kahlbach spectacularly landed an Iljuschin II-62 on the 900 meter grass runway. Later, Otto Lilienthals wife Agnes was given the title “Lady Agnes”.
So much history – so check out the airplane, it is now an interesting museum which also serves as Registry Office from time to time!
We are proud, in the spirit of this daring pioneer, to have the opportunity to come together and blast off for four days and three nights, in this village steeped in such amazing history.
