WhoMadeWhocontinues to demonstrate the passionate essence of their sound and their transcendental live performances after receiving tremendous critical acclaim for their recent album UUUU.
Henrik Schwarz, a German deep dance artist and composer recognized for flawlessly integrating elements of classical and jazz into his electronic performances as well as remixes for Coldplay and Michael Jackson, joins forces with Maeve label head Mano Le Tough.
The Irish DJ and composer rose to prominence with his debut album Changing Days, which was a melodious blend of modern disco and atmospheric house.
The lineup is completed by Shubostar from South Korea, who has recently pioneered the Cosmic disco sound, a melodic minimal tech set from Dutch brother duo Parallele in LA, and amapiano flag bearer AMÉMÉ, whose energetic sets are built upon tribal percussion, soulful vocals, and contemporary deep house as he goes b2b Swedish techno powerhouse Ida Engberg in NYC.
The world’s first sustainable music festivals, in the US too
As one of the world’s first sustainable music festivals, DGTL remains committed to reducing its carbon footprint through sustainability initiatives such as on-site plant-based food options, extensive recycling programs, and the elimination of single-use plastics and residual waste, setting a precedent for festivals worldwide.
Teksupport, led by founder Rob Toma, has spent the last decade creating New York City’s nightlife landscape with top-tier production, exceptional musical curation, and never-before-used locations.
Teksupport has been the driving force behind some of the most significant clashes of club culture, high fashion, and technology in recent years, pushing the boundaries of traditional nightlife. The trailblazing event visionaries extended outside New York City to host events around the country, establishing themselves as the leading partner for worldwide institutions’ stateside takeovers.
DGTL Los Angeles will also be co-hosted by the underground event collective Stranger Than. Stranger Than remains a revolutionary force in the US electronic music industry, known for repurposing culturally and historically significant metropolitan locations into venues for its house and techno performances.
Stranger Than, led by founder Tal Ohana, is responsible for the debut of numerous new locations for its iconic events throughout Los Angeles, including Grand Park on the steps of City Hall, El Pueblo in front of Union Station, Cabrillo Beach for one of LA’s only beachfront electronic parties, and the first-ever music programming at the Petersen Automotive Museum.
