Festival Description

The extraordinary electronic music extravaganza takes place on the beach in the Ukraine. The KaZantip Republic is unlike anything you have ever experienced — a non-existent state somewhere under the sun that often draws comparisons with Ibiza and Burning Man. Once you have your “entry visa” you can step into the vibrant, fascinating world of KaZantip where you will marvel at incredible structures on the beach, look on in amazement at the colourful, flamboyant, music-loving crowd, dance like you have never danced before, to the beat of the world’s leading electronic music artists and watch in wonder as Kite Surfers zip across the air and the sea.

DJs love to play there and the crowd comes back for more year on year. As ever you can expect to see the who’s who of dance music on show — the last few years the event has played host to Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, Seth Troxler, Guy Gerber, dOP, James Zabiela, Booka Shade and many many more. The magical gates to the kingdom open on August 4th and we’re pretty confident that the 20th anniversary is going to be nothing short of spectacular…

Artist feature 2013:
  • Cassy Britton (UK)
    Performance — August 1, 2013
    It is rare for any artist to hold almost universal respect and admiration from the house music community. Cassy has effortlessly managed to garner this over the course of her career via a revered discography, critically acclaimed compilations for Cocoon and Panoramabar, and countless exceptional performances across the globe. Currently holding residencies at four of the world’s leading venues; Panoramabar in Berlin, Trouw in Amsterdam, Rex Club in Paris, and now Output in Brooklyn, NYC, it is clear that Cassy’s artistic nous has a global reach. The roots of this story lay in Catherine Britton’s well-documented childhood. Born in London to a Caribbean father and Austrian mother, Cassy moved to Vienna at an early age. Surrounded by the ghosts of legendary composers in a city steeped in music history, Cassy’s love for music and the arts was nurtured by her parents. For more information visit
