The festival of alternative electronic music Tundra turns 10 this year. It is an important event in the context or the relatively young festival culture in Lithuania, which will be marked on the peninsula of Lake Dūburys, Zarasai District, on July 11–14. The statistics is quite eloquent: during the decade the Festival hosted almost one thousand acts and over 30,000 festival goers, it has seen hundreds of thousands lake dives, unbearable droughts, flooding showers, and – most importantly – a countless number of memorable moments.
“10 is an important number and we are dead serious about it,” say the organisers. “Tundra has been returning to the peninsula for several years in a row and helped shape its unique and sound environment, which has to be conserved therefore the anniversary festival was given the status of a music reserve. We have no explanation for the unique gathering of psy trance, bass, techno, and ambient ecosystems on the peninsula at this time of the year, but we can guarantee that this unique phenomenon will go on for 4 days,” promised the organisers.
The first species in the Red Book of the music reserve will be the British duo The Orb arriving with the entire Sound System crew – they will be performing on the festival’s Techno Stage. In the 80s, the act began mixing acid and Chicago house with the effects of early electronic synthesizers and now can certainly be called the pioneers of ambient techno. Depeche Mode, Primal Scream and David Gilmour from Pink Floyd are just a few of the many who have collaborated on the albums and remixes of the British duo. Last year, a new record was released together with Jamaican reggae producer Lee “Scratch” Perry.
From the legendary single Little Fluffy Clouds to the modern electronic dub treasury The Orbserver in the Star House, the relentless producers have been exhilarating the world with their unique ambient techno for 25 years. The tag of ambient music pioneers was earned for the act by the legendary Thomas Fehlmann and Youth from Killing Joke who were members of the band at some point of time, and by the curious and bold sound experiments that re-wrote the history of electronic music.
However The Orb will not be the only weird phenomenon in the unique Tundra reserve. The performance of the techno music pearl Perc from Great Britain has already been confirmed. The sound of this DJ, touring the world non-stop, is a harmonious combination of modern techno and early electronic, while famous clubs, such as Berghain, Fabric, Tresor, Space Ibiza and the Tokyo-based Unit, across the world have become home to this talented record spinner. Deadbeat, the maestro of dub techno currently exploring the territories of dubstep will come from Canada, and Oculta, the founder of Braindrop label, will make his first trip to Europe from India. They will be joined by Kikx from the Italian record company Purple Hexagon Records. DJ Gold aka Gold Dubs from V Recordings family has also confirmed his appearance.
As always, protectors of harmony and peace of nature will stretch their hammocks in the refuge of the forest. The magic of sound will be conjured by the representatives of the subgenre of classic and electronic dub Voodoo Tapes and PARA from Italy; they will be joined by the live performers from Lithuanian forests Ministry of Echology meets Eazystyle ir Dubenėlis.
Tundra’s organisers would like to note the phenomenon unique in the history of festivals – the audience will have an opportunity to choose the acts they would like to see in the anniversary event. Follow the news of Tundra – the rules of election will be announced shortly!
With the spring entering the forests and the cities, the first nightingales and pelicans of Tundra 2013 are beginning to arrive. More will be coming soon!
