We looked through Instagram to compile some of the musicians’ comments on the upcoming festival. Here’s what they had to say!
“Finally, get to announce this, I’ll be playing on the Drop Zone at the Dimension festival doing a cheeky little daytime summer vibe Drum and Bass set. Last time I was at this festival was the moment I thought I’d really have a go at doing this whole DJ thing and had set a personal goal to be on that stage, so to have that within reach now is really special. What makes this even greater for me is that it’s going to be the same stage as so many of my favorite NZ DJs and producers, as well as some of my just general favorite people, to get to share and perform in this space with all of them is a real honor.”Fox Glove via Instagram
“After almost 3 months of leaving my country, I have the immense happiness to announce my first date in New Zealand ❤️ I’ll be playing at this beautiful 4-day festival, featuring different genres such as jungle & dub, drum & bass, techno, and obviously lots of psytrance 🔥 I have a huge excitement to tell you that I will be sharing booth with artists who are great inspirations to me, to mix their tracks from my beginnings until now and who are nothing more and nothing less than Endeavour, Formantz, Nikki S and Zeridium 😍 Grateful for life and now not stopping.”Virtual Illusion via Instagram (Translated from Spanish)
