Inti Festival 2013 Peru: Dance For The Planet

The February 16th Inti Festival returns, an unique experience, marrying cultural, ecological and music in one of the most diverse climates of the world. Running since 2010 on the beautiful Asia beach, just outside of Lima, the capital of Peru, Inti festival communicates elements of the rich history of the country while educating its attendees on global issues through eco art projects, all the while showcasing the finest electronic music from the underground heroes of the world.

The fourth episode will bring over twenty local and international artists to the event. Bringing superstar DJs such as Ovum techno maestro Josh Wink to globetrotter Lee Burridge, alongside technical wizards Adultnapper, Guillaume & The Coutu Dumonts fresh from his last album on Circus Company, and Dan Berkson & James What, a duo famed for stealth releases on hot labels Poker Flat and Crosstown Rebels. We take a stroll through the past year edition.

Another charmer from the Rebels camp, Clive Henry will perform as well as the dexterous Bill Patrick and Visionquest’s latest album star, Cesar Merveille and his Cadenza label mate, Reboot. Inti fest brings artists from all corners of the globe with Droog stepping up from Los Angeles, Geddes and Anthea coming in from their London base to debut at the event, the Israeli Wolf + Lamb wonder Maayan Nidam and French electronic partnership Masomenos will play alongside local artists such as Lima resident Jay Haze, Andres Dyer and many more. As best example we return to the beach of Asia to the last edition of 2012, to give us a tour of its environment and artists.

Another aspect of the festival is its commitment to the environment. As one of the only events in Lima to take place on a beach, Inti has a focus on conservation with incentives for the minimisation of waste including EcoArt, a call to artists and collectives to develop proposals to recycle plastic collected throughout the year in a project called I Collaborate. Five winners will be awarded areas within the festival for their environmental projects. 3R Market invites artists to showcase and sell unique, affordable and ecological artistic products that are at least 80% recycled, plus talks and experiencies by Shipibo, the third largest ethnic group in the country. A chance to learn about indigenous communities in association with IAPICC, and enjoy the best electronics in an incomparable place, very good plan!
