The Basics

5-8 June 2014
Venice, Italy

 From the heart of Venice, to the islands of the laguna, comes 4 days of art & parties to light up the nights of the Biennale curated by Rem Koolhaas.

Shaking up the grandiose beauty of one of Europe's most alluring architectural cities, MORE Festival is a long weekend of electronic goodness, pioneering pop and out-of-the-box beat makers that takes over the best hidden inlets and surprise settings of Venice, including an old monastery and an disused mental asylum.

With exclusive boat journeys to the venues, plus opening parties, closing shows and plenty of late night action, the tide is changing in the floating Italian city where modern Michelangelo's bring the commune to life in the day time and the next generation of musical maestros keep the beats flowing until the clock dials head towards the dark hours.

Think visuals projected on historical walls, champagne and spritz, and whirling lights in the trees as disco, house, minimal and forward-thinking pop pumps out from the speakers. Back for a second year after a superb debut last summer, it's not only a chance to check out the Venice Biennale of Architecture opening week curated by Rem Koolhaas (one of the greatest architects of the world) but a party in one of the most stunning settings in the world of festivals

  • The minds behind MORE Festival really know their music. Last year they hosted shows for the 20th anniversary of the Kompakt label, so expect more underground surprises, progressive electronic stars and modern pop pioneers on this year's programme.
