UNDER FESTIVAL - a global event, created to unify people and show them the multifaceted nature, capacity and aesthetic of the underground music movement.
It aims to provide a platform for both newcomers and legends of the electronic music scene from around the globe, thus consolidating many generations of electronic underground in a single unified art-space.
It takes place over two days in Riga (Latvia) – a city which pioneered an electronic music movement. For its 2018 edition the festival will take over the Boļševička factory, a truly unique setting and a prized symbol of Rigas’s industrial architecture.
UNDER Festival is a brand new electronic music festival based in Riga, Latvia. The city holds a special place in the evolution of eastern European rave culture and the organisers are looking to bring the vibe back.
Fresh off a successful first edition in 2017, the festival is looking to breathe life back into the Eastern European rave scene.
Putting together a lineup that champions up and coming artists, UNDER Festival is about giving a platform to artists who might be overlooked by more mainstream forums.
The festival is Riga's first fully dedicated electronic music festival and as such aims to capture the energy of the 90s movement and modernise it to reflect the evolution of the electronic music culture over the years.
UNDER is set up to promote the once famous underground movement and free spirit that Riga nurtured decades ago. UNDER is designed to build a link between past and future, displaying the evolution that underground culture has gone through over time.
It's about celebrating and bringing back the spirit that our beloved city once pioneered and, at the same time, embracing the arrival of a new era of electronic music and artists that stand behind it, that will shape the sound for many years to come.
