Holi festival and electronic music come together
Holi Festival of Colours Dresden is another edition of the culture-colliding electronic music festival. Lineups of international and local house music heroes proved the sonic setting for one of the most explosive experiences of the year.
Holi is an Indian traditional festival, where coloured powder becomes a weapon for unity as it covers entire crowds, breaking down the barriers of skin colour and social background.
Brought to new areas of the world and mixed together with electronic music festival culture, this spiritual-social rite becomes a powerful point of focus that is grabbing imaginations all across Europe and beyond.
This festival is part of a nationwide series of Holi Festival of Colours events – see them all here.
Right in the heart of Dresden and on the banks of the beautiful Elbe river, the festival site frequently enjoys 20º+ temperatures in August.
