Haven’t had the chance to go skiing yet? Missed the snow this winter? This Saturday in Petrol we go POLAR! Charlotte DC presents Polarbarefoot. Dustin Zahn (US), Flatfish (Antwerp), Charlotte and the winner of the DJ-contest Gianni Migom will spin the wheel.
The summer-edition of the festival Barefoot was a real hit. People hung out, listened to smooth house-tunes, the weather was good, the atmosphere was right. So this summer there is gonna be a second edition. Chilli-out asks Charlotte about the polaredition: “I also really like techno, and the dark side. So I thought: why not do the complete opposite? Instead of lovey dovey, outside, warm and housy; cold, dark, techno and inside.”
You can expect a lot of things going on with the décor. There will be visuals of the Matterhorn, snowy mountains and ice, made by an Austrian visual artist. These will be projected on the walls and the ceiling and will drown you in the snowy landscape. “It’s gonna be really nice looking, with the visuals, the white balloons, there’ s gonna be smoke and wind. It’s gonna be an experience!”, Charlotte awes.
Dustin Zahn of Drumcodelabel is the main DJ-act. He is an American who lives in Berlin and worked together with Len Faki. He’s gonna treat us with a set of 2 hours and a half.
Gianni Migom is the winner of the DJ-contest. There were 40 dj’s who entered the contest. Gianni played the half-hour winning set ‘with a snowstorm in his head’. So that is promising.
Flatfish is an Antwerp DJ-duo who will do the closing. They are the organizers of Lucid-festival, and they know how to party on the dark side of the moon.
Charlotte asks the people who come to get dressed up. The dresscode is polar, so think: white, blue, grey, fake fur, nouveau eskimo, … You can take a picture in the photo booth. The best dressed-up people get a chance to win 2 tickets to Timewarp, Mannheim. (http://www.time-warp.de)
