Dub Camp Romania, July 13-16, Romania
Going to a festival is in danger of becoming less and less about the community, the authenticity, and the vibe. We need to return to the roots of togetherness, of pure joy, of connecting to our nature… That can only mean turning to the soundsystem culture and the origins of electronic music as we know it today. That is why we created DubCamp Romania as an independent, community-built festival. Relying on the community is our superpower and because of that, each and every participant of DubCamp Romania is a creator alongside us… we’re taking the DIY culture seriously, so join us and be a creator of your ideal festival experience!
Lineup highlights: Mungo’s Hi-Fi, General Levy, Radikal Guru, Aba Shanti-I, Fane, Genmaica.
