After a magical first edition in 2015 with the likes of David August, Dauwd and Dream Koala, Sacred Ground Festival will return to the 100-year old farm in north Germany’s Uckermark from July 29-31.

While remaining true to its intimate character with a very limited capacity, high quality food and drinks from the direct vicinity, and a hand-crafted scenery by international artists and architects, the festival program is extended to a whole weekend, starting from Friday afternoon to Sunday noon.

This year’s edition will also see an additional indoor stage, opening it’s airy halls on both nights after the main stage to boundlessly dance into the morning and hosting a strong cast of DJs and live acts.

Another improvement will be the extended shuttle service to and from the nearest trainstation Prenzlau from where you can catch direct trains to Berlin about every hour.

RY X & Frank Wiedemann are again handpicking an international cast of musicians and DJs to perform at the event. This year’s initial lineup includes the following, with more scheduled to be announced soon.

Mathew Jonson [live]
Lead Cobblestone Jazzer and top six of the world’s best live acts as voted by Resident Advisor, Mathew Jonson will be headlining Sacred Ground with one of his legendary live sessions.

The two curators’ joint project will be a central part of the program.

Alice Phoebe Lou
After selling out shows all over the world, Alice Phoebe Lou will make her way to Sacred Ground with her Kyson-produced album and a brand new band setup.

Sacred Ground will be host of his rare festival appearance showcasing RY X’s much-anticipated debut album.

Hailing from Amsterdam, the mysterious BEA1991 got heads turning from The Guardian to Dev Hynes (a.k.a Blood Orange).

Ryan Vail
The Irish composer has performed alongside an impressive range of artists including Jamie XX, Jon Hopkins, Tycho, Todd Terje and Nils Frahm. The latter also hand-picked him to contribute a song to his carefully curated Piano Day compilation. Sacred Ground will be among his first German appearances ever.

The delicate and absorbing sound of this emerging singer will not be a secret for long.
