Chris fucking Liberator!

Some good techno for first round acts, especially keen for Vitalic and Phase. Interested to see Abakus, I missed him at rsf like 5 years ago, apparently to my detriment. And excited to see Bliss again, his cheesy guitar-psy at EC two years ago was dynamite.

In spite of all my EC naysaying in the past, it has seriously developed into an unmissable party these days. Bring on the second round announcements!

Promoters here are sooooo lazy.

Vice, Altruism, Protonica - played RSF this year
Capital Monkey, Easy Riders, Rocky, One Man Orchestra, Morten Granau, Symbolic - playing Maitreya this year
Headroom - playing Maitreya this year and has been out year after year after year.

Plus a heap of repeat acts in general.

Slam particularly....

He's playing his new live set at Earthcore. All psy, actually live (not just pressing play).

Hmm, ok. I'll give him a chance.

Last two times I've seen him he's been average at best.

Could I live with myself and actually go to an Earthcore event? It's the yearly conundrum. That line up is pretty good.

Excellent techno lineup as well which would increase the chance of being able to convince non-doof mates to come out.

They need someone fresh, who hasn't toured before...it's all looking so recycled

^his set at ec in 2014 was average. I think a lot of it had to do with the stage & atmosphere. Joof destroys dark clubs where he has 3 hours+ to craft a good set and really reads the crowd well. At EC he was 10ft up in the air, with a sparse crwod and 1.5 hours. He pretty much just played a lot of big full on tracks by electric universe & sonic species from memory - it was a psytrance anthems set almost.

Dunno about him coming again to a doof :p

He's finalising a new album entirely of psytrance and a proper live set that he'll be playing at EC.

A 3hr DJ set at a doof in the right timeslot (i.e. 10pm-1am) would be immense, but if he's going to be restricted to the standard 90mins then the live set is more appealing.

Having observed the trend over a few years, I'm pretty sure that EC is trying to position itself as a predominantly techno festival, while keeping the standard safe psy/prog contingent to keep the hippies happy.

I mean, look at last year's main stage: Sam Paganini, Chris Liebing, Rodhad, Dave the Drummer, Pfirter, perc and Truss, oxia(well the last few were not mainstage, but huge additions). That's a nice sweaty wad of international techno. Matt Radovich had one of the closing sets of the party and destroyed the place with his nosebleed 140bpm circa 2002 techno. The crowd fucking loved it.

That was a pretty fresh lineup techno wise, a good mix of old school and new school, and the addition of Slam, Vitalic, Phase, liberator and some of those other ****s continues that trend.

CookieFp, if DtD can forgive spiro and EC in general, sure you can too

Well as far as I know j00f played 2007 and 2014 so this will be his 3rd EC...so recycled!!
He played some anthems near the end of his set last time since 1200 mics were late getting set up. He played a bunch of really hypnotic human blue type stuff and a few astral projection tracks so it wasn't just all full on stuff all the time.

I dunno, I just think sometimes some of the prog psy or other psy djs at these festivals play so much of the same tracks or play a set full of droning repetitive kick and bass with no variation that someone like j00f is a breath of fresh air

Earthcore is running a dj competition again this year and holy crap i made it through! It would be super amazing to be able to play at the same festival as my heroes so if you guys would be able to vote for my mix that would be awesome! You need a soundcloud account to 'follow' Earthcore and then you vote by liking the mix, writing comments and re-posting it. Creating an account is quick and easy if you don't already have one. It's a popularity contest so the more likes and comments etc, the better my chances are! here is the link to my entry:

Earthcore 2016 was so good. Was hoping to have the same this year but it's an absolute failure. Bad organisation, poor planning, extremely shite location.
