UP is launching a series of one night events and taking the talent across Europe. Kickstarting the series in Sofia, Bulgaria on December 3rd before welcoming a talented selection of house DJ’s to each of their events. This festival is described as a cutting edge music and art festival and that is just what they deliver. Experienced artists that truly know their craft while mixing in immersive visuals for an all round creative energy. Transporting us to Sofia this December for a 12 hour party at Micro club from 8pm to 8 am. Bulgaria’s capital will be the place to be.

Bulgaria, especially in recent years, has had an impressive and growing crowd within the house music scene. Local favourite, Laylla Dane will set the atmosphere for the party in true Bulgarian style. Sonja Moonear hails from Switzerland to deliver impeccable house alongside her extensive record collection. Over the past two decades she has climbed up the ranks to become one of the most sought after underground DJ’s on the scene. She has released tracks on some of the top labels such as Perlon and Karat. Berlin based, John Dimas will also join the event, showing off his impressive ear for sound, and knowledge of music, never putting a beat out of place. Amir Javasoul produces music firstly with the dance floor and energy of the people in mind, and will also be joined by UP festival founder Bruno Curtis.

A star studded event fit for the very best. Up Festival is known for their intricate mix of artists that touch upon techno’s prestigious names and delve into the underground talent —a perfect combo! After their first two editions, the festival has garnered further attention each time and has quickly made a name for themselves across Europe. After starting off as just a 72hr music and art festival in Prague, they have continued gaining respect from fellow party throwers, artists, and attendees, and even hosted heavyweight artists like Ricardo Villalobos, Marcel Dettmann, Margaret Dygas, tINI, Cristi Cons, Dewalta, Ion Ludwig, Magda and many more.

Early Bird tickets will be available from November 11th at the price of €20, and can be purchased via the official website.
