Hyte, the Berlin-based underground festival brand, is heading to the Netherlands for its Rotterdam debut to take over the main stage of “A Day at the Park” at Kralingse Bos on Saturday, September 21st, 2019.

It’s a matter of love for the crowd in the Netherlands when it comes to the line-up, which features the best in techno and house.

The soundtrack comes courtesy of leader of the techno-elite Chris Liebing, the guarantee for pumping basslines of Nicole Moudaber, the house and techno craftsmanship of Nic Fanciulli, the inimitable Chicago charm of Green Velvet as well as Netherlands stalwarts Adin and Wouter S. And there’s one more big headliner on the bill, which is going to be announced in August.

But Hyte is more than just some big names on the line-up: Be prepared for the revered Hyte commitment to light, sound, and show design including the signature laser cage that always creates an incredible environment for likeminded partygoers.

Beacon of the underground Hyte sets another date in its Dutch calendar as it teams up with A Day At The Park, for the launch of a new collaboration that coincides with the festival’s return with an exciting new location. 20,000 partygoers are set to reignite the legacy of A Day At The Park on September, 21st, 2019 at Rotterdam’s Kralingse Bos, a venue carefully chosen to reflect the decade-plus history of the event.

Fittingly, Hyte will curate a big stage and ensure that the brand’s first appearance in Rotterdam properly reflects its sterling reputation.

Naturally, the carefully-curated artists of Hyte x A Day At The Park 2019 will be supported by the same sterling production that has earned the underground events series a rock-solid standing in every corner of the globe; whether it’s Miami or Amsterdam, Berlin or Ibiza. Punters can look forward to sound that delivers the crispest highs and the deepest bass in this outdoor Rotterdam setting, alongside the trademark Hyte lighting and visuals.

The signature laser cage will be in full effect, and Hyte regulars know to expect quality that is unparalleled.

Hyte is bringing some of the hottest artists of techno and house to Rotterdam. Get ready for…

Chris Liebing

Not only has Chris Liebing led the techno-elite for more than 25 years, but he has also undergone constant creative evolution during that time.

With a legacy that stretches back to Frankfurt’s iconic early scene, Liebing’s DJing experience stretches back even further to 1990 when he was playing hip-hop, soul and house in his university hometown of Giessen.Chris LiebingA job at Frankfurt’s Eye Q Records, plus a legendary residency at Omen Club, represented his entry into a lifetime of techno.

Leading his revered CLR imprint for nearly 20 years and famous for the incredible intensity he brings to his DJ sets, it was his refusal to stand still that saw him depart for the release of an artist album with the iconic Mute Records and to start a close collaboration with the legendary label.

“I’ve wanted to do something like ‘Burn Slow’ all my life,” said Liebing.

“I vividly remember dancing around at my neighbour’s house in the early ’80s to songs by Depeche Mode and Yazoo. Banging my head in dark basements to the likes of DAF, Laibach and Nitzer Ebb to name but a few.”

Green Velvet

This Chicago legend has been taking ravers to “La La Land” for nearly as long as rave itself has existed, cultivating his love of house and techno while studying chemical engineering at the University of Illinois.

Eventually, it was chemical engineering of the Acid House variety that drew the focus of Green Velvet.Green VelvetReleasing music also as Cajmere with a focus on jackin’ Chicago house, he reserved his Green Velvet alias for music steered down “an Industrial lane.” His 1993 record “Preacher Man” was formative, inspired by a sermon from Reverend CL Franklin.

“The minute I heard it, I just wanted to record something with it, that powerful vocal,” Green Velvet told Moo Kid. “He even kept roaring the word ‘house’!”

In the early 1990s, he launched his Cajual label as well as its sister Relief imprint, and Green Velvet remains as relevant and present as ever as a new generation embraces house music across the US.

A soon to be announced special guest

One more big headliner will be added to the massive line up of Hyte x A Day At The Park 2019 soon. Expect something big!

Nicole Moudaber

Nicole Moudaber embodies the international spirit of techno, its ability to cross borders and speak a universal language.

Raised in Nigeria of Lebanese descent, she’s lived in New York and thrown parties in Beirut, now situated in her home of London via Ibiza.

A onetime protégé of Carl Cox and a regular on techno staples like Adam Beyer’s Drumcode label, Moudaber is also the boss of very own MOOD label and event series.Nicole MoudaberShe’s a slave to the pulse of the dancefloor and happily describes herself as a party animal; a lover of fast cars who holds a racing license, regularly hitting speeds of 270kph and upwards; and deeply passionate about activism.

Moudaber has worked for years with theLower East Side Girls Club in New York to mentor disadvantaged young women and most recently launched Eleven, her own campaign to end the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM).

“Nobody knows about this subject,” Moudaber told DJ Mag.

“I think these girls need a voice, and if I can be a bit of help, then my job is done in this world.” It’s this passion that shines through in Moudaber’s talent for rocking crowds the world over.

Nic Fanciulli

The beginning of Nic Fanciulli’s journey to becoming one of house and techno’s most prevalent and consistent DJs and producers began in one of the most old-school ways imaginable: he handed a cassette demo to a club owner, in his hometown of Maidstone in the South East of England.Nic Fanciulli“It was the place where everyone was playing – Carl Cox, Sasha and Digweed, Pete Tong,” Fanciulli told Traxsource. “I learned a lot of my craft there. That was my apprenticeship into music.”

While he still lives in Maidstone, he now DJs in every corner of the globe, launching his seminal Saved Records imprint alongside his brother Mark Fanciulli that is swiftly approaching its 15th anniversary.

He’s a regular for the Hyte celebrated events series, whether it’s a sweaty Amsterdam warehouse or a pristine island off the coast of Vietnam.

Wouter S

Utrecht house-head Wouter S is positioned prominently among the next generation of DJ/producers who are bringing authentically jackin’ sounds to thirsty crowds, with his innate knack for timeless house (with a delicious side of UK garage) really hitting the spot whether it’s an intimate label showcase for his own 44Records imprint or a pumping HYTE warehouse event in Amsterdam.Wouter SIt’s a profile that Wouter has built from grassroots beginnings up over the past decade, cultivated on the side while ensconced in a previous life working in IT and sales.

Electronic music is now his primary focus, and this year he’s introduced to the world what he describes as his “newborn baby” in the form of his new Kompai label.

You’ll catch him representing the Dutch house massive at Hyte events over the summer.

ADIN

ADIN is stalwart of the Netherlands’ incredible scene, arriving via a journey that took him from his home country of Bosnia to a Rotterdam record store.ADINHoning his craft in the days when vinyl was king and producing his first tracks in the early noughties, ADIN has kickstarted 2019 with the launch of his new DREEF imprint.

His sound is situated between European techno and his love for the more melodic side of the dancefloor.

“My Balkan origins added to this love of melodies, as music is a huge part of the culture on that side of the world,” ADIN told Pulse in an interview.

Beyond his Balkan roots, he points to his adopted home as the source of his inspiration. “I’m so happy that I’m living in such an amazing country like the Netherlands. We have the healthiest music scene in the world,” he says.
