Maribou State’s unique and compelling sounds, a deeply soulful marriage of the organic and the synthetic, will prove another DGTL India stand-out, as will the Swedish Acid queen, SPFDJ, whose high-tempo sound explores strains of techno, acid, EBM, hardcore and trance. Italian maestro, Toto Chiavetta and duo Giolì & Assia will bring their respective blends of house, indie, and pop, while Likwid and Ana Lilia, no strangers to the burgeoning techno scene in India, step up for a very special B2B. Having played at numerous domestic and international locations and festivals, Likwid and Ana Lilia will be a surefire treat with their brands of fast and furious techno as well.

Key Serbian music star, Tijana T joins globally renowned Iranian-American house and techno legend, Dubfire. From Amsterdam, Lee-Ann Roberts promises a timeless blend of soundbites from the past, present and future of music, with fellow Dutch act, Ki/ Ki bringing a sound realm that is both futuristic and nostalgic.
