The focus of this year’s 12-week residency is three-fold: bringing together a like-minded but diverse series of selectors and producers, debuting rising Afterlife talent, and bridging the gap between boundary-pushing music and innovative digital art. As is customary, Tale Of Us will close the Theatre space on a weekly basis—after a two-year hiatus, expect to be completely immersed in the evolution of the Afterlife movement.
As usual, the music takes center stage. Some of the scene’s most renowned genre-pushing talent, including Innellea, Mathame, and Patrice Bäumel, make appearances in the main room (“Theatre“). The second space (“Club”) dives deep into the realms of dark underground techno, with sets from Kobosil, ANNA, Chris Liebing, Daria Kolosova, Patrick Mason, Clara Cuvé, Massano and Dax J to name a few.
Tale Of Us, who have built a reputation for paying special attention to how thoughtfully designed spaces can influence the clubbing experience, are blurring the lines between realities even further this year. Along with the iconic Afterlife insignia above the dancefloor, expect fully immersive visual installations and custom lighting arrays, all topped off by the usual cutting-edge sound design and engineering. Transcendent doesn’t begin to cover it.
Taking place every Thursday between 7th July to 22nd September at Hï Ibiza, Afterlife 2022 sees Tale Of Us forever expanding the realm of collective consciousness. Reservations can be made at hiibiza.com.
