Here in the U.S., we have Red Rocks and the Gorge Amphitheatre and a few other beautiful locales that double as amazing concert venues. All of those might (might) be trumped by what the town of Rättvik has to offer. Within the forests outside of the city was a limestone quarry that was going unused, so it was instead turned into an jaw-droppingly beautiful amphitheater in 1991. And since last year, it has served as the locale for Into The Valley, a multi-stage, multi-night event celebrating the breadth and scope of the electronic music world.
This year’s edition of the fest – happening from the 28th to the 30th of July – is as impressive as it gets, with the scope of the bookings incorporating a huge range of styles and sounds. We’re going to let our Spotify playlist do much of the talking when it comes to spelling out the lineup, but if you’re not excited about the chance to hear Jeff Mills, Ellen Allien, Omar S, The Black Madonna, and John Talabot do their respective things…you’ve definitely come to the wrong place.
For the rest of you, if you fancy yourself a fan of electronic music, you shouldn’t miss this one-of-a-kind event. Waste not another moment, friends: We have Into The Valley 2016 ticket and travel packages for you right here. Make your plans accordingly, and we’ll see you on the dance floor.
