Since its inaugural edition in 2017, New Horizons has swiftly become one of Europe's premier dance music festivals, mainly due to a couple of prominent factors.
First, its location at the iconic Nürburgring towards Germany's western border. Secondly, the promoter's vision of merging "seven festivals into one". A vision that they've successfully established over the past two years, hosting the world's biggest DJs from across the dance music spectrum over seven unique stages, complete with their own personal characteristics and stylish production.
With details on 2019's festival impending, here's the insider info into each area within the futuristic dance music utopia.
The festival's main arena, dedicated almost entirely to world superstars of the EDM realm. This is the place to be to see the festival's headliners.
Capital Park alumni include the likes of Hardwell, Marshmello, Steve Aoki, Armin Van Buuren, Axwell ^ Ingrosso and Tiësto.
Upcoming EDM artists making a name for themselves in the industry can be seen here. As well as some impromptu booty-popping, courtesy of Salvatore Ganacci.
The biggest of all the undercover stages is the Q-Dance stage, hosting the DJs playing the harder styles on the electronic music palette.
For those of you craving an intense BPM rate, you can see the likes of Angerfist, Wildstylez, and Atmozfears here.
Trancetonia is fairly self-explanatory, with an array of top trance artists taking to the stage, ranging from modern heavyweights like David Gravell to legends of the genre like Paul Oakenfold.
The funkiest stage at New Horizons; you'll be two-stepping till your heart's content to the more stripped back and minimal sounds of techno. Known for the occasional special guest performances (Chris Liebing for instance), so keep your eyes peeled.
Trap by name, trap by nature, seeing the likes of Valentino Khan and Flux Pavilion kicking proceedings off here.
Garden of Goa
Yet another outdoor stage to bounce around in; a stark reminder that those of the electronic music persuasion can find their dance haven at any of the special seven areas at New Horizons Festival. Be it ramped-up hardstyle, minimal techno, or the wigged-out psytrance that you'd expect to hear on the beaches of Goa.
New Horizons Festival 2019 takes place 21-25 August 2019. Tickets are now on sale, so check out our shop for both tickets and accommodation.
