FESTIVAL NEWS: Nature One 2016, 5 – 7 August, The best time of the year

22nd NATURE ONE from 5 – 7 August on the Pydna missile base. 65,000 visitors are expected to converge on the Pydna missile base near Kastellaun from 5 to 7 August for Germany’s largest festival for  electronic music. “Robin Schulz”, “Paul van Dyk”, “Sven Väth”, “Adam Beyer”, “Laidback Luke”, “Chris Liebing” and “Sander van Doorn” are just some of the top acts that will be playing for four days and three nights. With “red dancing flames” as its motto, the event will see over 350 DJs and live acts on no fewer than 23 stages. And it all gets going as early as the Thursday (4 August) with the “MixeryOpening” in the “CampingVillage”.

Nature One 2016
“red dancing flames” is the motto for the 22nd NATURE ONE being held on the Pydna missile base near Kastellaun in the Hunsrück region from 5 to 7 August. “Red for the love, dancing for the music
and flames for the passion,” as it says on the NatureOne home page. And the love and enthusiasm for the largest electronic festival in Germany is still unbroken even after 20 years: NATURE ONE has been sold out the last two years. This year is expected to see 65,000 visitors as well. 

   The fans can look forward to over 350 DJs on any one of 23 floors. The central “OpenAirFloor” will play host to international top acts such as “Laidback Luke”, “Markus Schulz”, “Sander van Doorn”, “R3HAB” and “Moguai”. What is surely going to be a highlight here is Robin Schulz’s gig. Hits such as “Sugar” and “Prayer in C”, several Echo Awards, a Grammy nomination and over 20 gold and platinum awards have elevated him to a global superstar. 

The best time of the year
“Century Circus”, the second largest floor, will be housed in a 10-masted marquee for the first time and thus be some 25% larger than last year. And that means more space for everyone to celebrate with artists like “Sven Väth”, “Adam Beyer”, “Dave Clarke” and “Chris Liebing”. In addition to the four “headfloors”, event organisers, labels and club operators from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Belgium will be showcasing their artists and sounds on 19 “club floors”, including such heavyweights as “Masters of Hardcore”, “abstract”, “Dirty Workz” and “Acid Wars”. Making it really special: the floors are in and on the former missile bunkers so there’s either club feeling between metre-thick concrete walls for a couple of hundred visitors or a fantastic view over the festival site from the ten-metre-high bunkers.Trance, drum'n'bass, techno, house and hardcore – the floors cover the entire gamut of electronic music. The clubs themselves are responsible for the programme and format. The line-up consists of resident DJs of the clubs, newcomers and established stars such as “Miss K8”, “AKA AKA”, “Klaudia Gawlas”, “Marco Bailey” and “Psyko Punkz”.  

Nature One, 5-7 August 2016
To enjoy the festival feeling to the full, many visitors actually arrive on the Thursday. Camping on the 100-hectare expanses of the campsite is part of the NatureOne feeling for them. “For many visitors NATURE ONE is the best time of the year. They start planning and organising months in advance. Hundreds of spontaneous parties spring up in the CampingVillage as countless hobby DJs fire up their own sound systems. You’ll only see that at NATURE ONE,” says event organiser I-Motion’s Oliver Vordemvenne. The kick-off for NATURE ONE “red dancing flames” is also in the CampingVillage, at the traditional “MixeryOpening” at 8pm on the Thursday. As in the previous years, admission to the CampingVillage is only possible with a valid festival ticket. There were no particular problems to speak of last year with the traffic to and from the event site. “The revamped traffic scheme worked very smoothly and will be in place again this time. We’re also going to continue investing in the CampingVillage’s infrastructure,” explains Oliver Vordemvenne from IMotion. A shuttle coach service from Koblenz main station to Pydna is being provided for those not planning to come by car. The first coaches will be leaving as early as 12 noon on the Thursday and then every 20 minutes after that until 12 midnight.
