Sölden has the beats: Electric Mountain Festival 2017

We are into the final countdown – a thrill of anticipation: on 06 and 07 April Giggijoch’s Fun Zone will again become the melting pot of Electronic Dance Music. The ultimate EMF Electric Mountain Festival has already become a cult event in the scene thanks to international top acts. Need an example? NERVO – Australia’s female music stars, models and party girls – can’t get enough after their 2016 premiere in Ötztal. Therefore the two unbeatable sisters will once again appear on stage. The superb line-up comprises also many other undisputed stars like AFROJACK, Bassjackers, Michael Feiner, and more.

„We’ll be back!“

The two DJane sisters Olivia and Miriam NERVO kept to a quotation of the “Terminator” when they left Sölden last year. Their highly successful EMF debut was perfectly matching with everything Sölden stands for: sports, lifestyle and entertainment. Previous to the show on Giggijoch, they explored the endless slopes in the Sölden ski area.

They shared unique impressions and images via Instagram and Facebook with millions of followers. But also Sölden’s nightlife was made to measure for the two girls from Down Under, including jovial après-ski, culinary treats and bar hopping in Ötztal. Also in 2017 the two headliners and music producers will focus on fun for themselves and even more fun for the fans!

AFROJACK, the second main act of this year’s Electric Mountain Festival, also ranks among the winter sport aficionados. Nick van de Wall has already more than 12 million followers on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Snapchat. And he always keeps his fans up-to-date, be it on his current tour of Brazil or during his winter sport holidays. Snowboard instead of turntables is the motto of the Dutch music artist before he entertains the crowds.

Holland is a DJ Nation

The Netherlands use to set the tone when it comes to Electronic Dance Music, at least if you take a look at the overall EMF line-up. Quintino (32nd in the Top 100 DJ ranking), the Bassjackers (top 10 in the Beatport Charts) and AFROJACK companion Ravitez are part of the Oranjes armada on Giggijoch.

The stage is conveniently located close to the Giggijoch lift, an 8-seater chair lift with orange wind protection shields, which is nicknamed the “Dutch lift” by the locals.

Fine tunes from Sweden

Of course, the international bunch of artists has also German and Swedish star DJs live on stage. Germany’s Sophie Schäfer and Markus Lange joined forces as “Ostblockschlampen”.

While the home country of ABBA and Swedish House Mafia is represented by Michael Feiner – a superb solo artist, songwriter and music producer who wrote popular hits like “Flash In The Night” or “Party People”.

EMF history: its beginnings …

In spring 2012 a new festival concept was born in Sölden, revolving around electronic music. Already in its first year, the organizing committee could convince a real super star for the yearly end-of-winter season party: DJ idol David Guetta performed live on stage at Rettenbach Glacier!

The lively French guy loved the high Alpine location: “It’s crazy to be here in the middle of the mountains and glaciers!”. But David Guetta was only the first of many unrivaled Electronic Music Stars. In the following festival editions, the open-air stage saw nice sounding names like Martin Solveig, Robin Schulz, Fedde Le Grand, Nicky Romero, Klingande, Steve Angello and many more.
