Get into the groove, Taipei, because the next big music festival is about to take your city by storm. Groove On The Grass, a world-renowned music and arts festival, makes its Asian debut on December 1st and 2nd, 2023. Soon, Taipei will pulsate to the beats of international techno icons like Ben Klock, Ellen Allien, and Dewalta, along with an impressive lineup of artists that will have you dancing from dusk to dawn.
The festival's first Asian edition will unfold within an eminent commercial building in Ximending District, known for its cultural richness, artistry, gaming, and bustling entertainment industry. Three expertly curated stages will host the two-day festival across the Westar venue complex, from the renowned Studio 9 club to its intimate backroom known as The Kitchen.
Bona fide techno titan Ben Klock, the Berghain resident and Klockworks label owner headlines the festival. Joining him on the bill is Ellen Allien, the founder of the iconic BPitch Control label, gracing the stage with her distinctive style and rhythmic flair. Dewalta, a trained jazz musician and Meander label boss will weave his hypnotic minimal house sound to enchant the crowd.
But the star power doesn't stop there. DEIAN, acclaimed artist and founder of Groove On The Grass, will bring his worldly experience from Ibiza, Burning Man, and beyond to the Taipei dancefloor. Marlie, the Australian-born, London-based force of the micro-house scene, will deliver her bristling combination of punchy percussive flows and exciting hooks.
Taiwan's very own Code Wu, a Beatport Top 50 artist and Golden Indie Music Awards winner is sure to steal the show with his eclectic mix of techno and electronica. Meanwhile, Seoul's rising star, Afrodite, will captivate the audience with her eclectic selections.
