After the celebration of the Road to Ultra Colombia in Llanogrande, Antioquia, the activity for electronic music in Colombia does not stop, especially in Medellín. Next weekend, on November 5 and 6the group Breakfast Club will carry out the sixth edition of rituals, one of the most consolidated festivals on the national scene. What started as a parallel celebration of Halloween framed by the different derivations of house and techno, soon grew to become a festival in its own right.
More than 20,000 people are expected to attend the event that will take place in Parque Norte, with a line-up that includes a total of 54 guest artists, most of whom are international in stature and recognized for animating rumba in nightclubs around the world. The line-up includes names of the caliber of the British duo Camelphat, the Italian producer DJ Tennis (especially relevant these days thanks to the success of his song ‘All In A Dream’, which already exceeds 100 million views on Spotify), the Danish trio of dance-punk Whomadewho, the experienced Italian producer Enrico Sangiuliano, the Spanish Paco Osuna, the Ukrainian Nastia, the Brazilian Mochakk, the German Stephan Bodzin (live show), and other great producers who interpret in always different ways the way in which the public can face the dance and the party.
Among the national quota, it is worth mentioning the producer Julio Victoria, who has just appeared at the III Points Festival in Miami, United States, along with names of the caliber of LCD Soundsystem, James Blake, Madeon or Porter Robinson. Other domestic producers to watch out for include Briska and Surfer Rosa.
RITVALES will have four stages that will see activity and variety in equal parts during the two days of this festival, which reinforces the growing positioning of the Aburrá Valley but also of Colombia in general as one of the destinations to take into account for electronic music in the world. Not only because of the energy of its public, but because of the producers that have been emerging in recent times, with ambition and resources that can compete with those of the Anglo-Saxon sphere.
