RÜFÜS DU SOL Sundream Baja massive lineup
The immersive, transcendental ethos that has come to be associated with RÜFÜS DU SOL and its global community is reflected in Sundream. The weekender experience will feature RÜFÜS’ ground-breaking live performance and taste-setting DJ set, a picturesque contrast of the two elements that make them one of the most exciting artists in the world. The group will be joined by fellow live electronic legend Monolink, the Berlin-based duo and Afterlife founders Tale Of Us, Solid Grooves label boss Michael Bibi, and the back-to-back vision quest fervor of DJ Tennis and Carlita‘s recently launched Astra Club.
The lineup continues with Rose Avenue riser Luke Alessi, minimal tech heroine Yulia Niko, amapiano champion Desiree, and Swedish producer and DJ Jonas Rathsman who will also bring his Modern Tales project to the mix alongside brother Franz Novotny. Weval, a left-of-center experimental techno duo, will round out the lineup, and Jimi Jules, whose ground-breaking song “My City’s On Fire” may have been the perfect representation of Sundream 2022, will make his much anticipated Sundream 2022 debut.
Spanish-born underground champion Arodes, Mexico City mainstay Maria Nocheydia, Tulum-based DJ and producer Litos, and fellow Mexican underground champion Kalexis complete the stellar line-up as part of the band’s ongoing commitment to highlighting the less well-known and avant-garde movement leaders.
Sundream Baja in San José del Cabo, Mexico
The picturesque El Ganzo Sculpture Gardens are now home to Sundream Baja. This unusual location is less than ten minutes from San Jose del Cabo’s downtown, hidden just behind Los Cabos’ beaches, where the Pacific Ocean meets Baja’s desert gardens. This vast 12-acre parkland is home to a stunning collection of monolithic sculptures by some of Mexico’s most famous living artists, while also housing thousands of cacti, succulents, and palms from deserts around the world. In keeping with the customs of Mexico’s indigenous people, the gardens are made to commemorate cacti in all of their varieties.
Additionally, the festival will host a number of private performances in Crania, its creative hub. Located adjacent to the Sculpture Gardens, Crania is an extreme reclamation project that hosts bespoke events and experiences centered around; art, music, food, sustainability, innovation and creation.
The launch of Sundream Baja comes after RÜFÜS’s Grammy win earlier this year, two nominations for 2023, and ARIA win in Australia. The band also recently wrapped up the US leg of their Surrender tour, which saw them sell out some of the country’s biggest venues like The Gorge, Red Rocks and LA’s Hollywood Bowl, onwards to a triumphant sold out homecoming run in Sydney and Adelaide with Melbourne and Perth on the horizon next week.
