Also a spotlight will be shone on local acts such as Project Pablo, Atroxx, Rico Shae, Kris Tin, Nymra & Sofisticated, Zepha, Obsolète Collective and TGV.
Speaking of the festival, organizers stated, "At the edge of the river, the musical experience is a paradox between nature and the building where the past and the future confront. An independent and eco-responsible festival where landmarks are deconstructed to give way to hedonism and the unpredictable."
