The first Audioriver 2021 headliner to be confirmed is Bicep. Born in Belfast and living in London, the duo is considered to be one of the most interesting projects of the last decade, and the breakthrough in their career was the most expressive material in the form of their debut album released in 2017. After the success of the album, Matt and Andy performed at festivals such as Coachella, Glastonbury, Sonar, and Primavera. Bicep will release their second album, Isles, via Ninja Tune next January.

Gorgon City is also one of the top British electronic projects, which has been successful in recent years thanks to a combination of house bass, catchy melodies, and distinctive vocals. As a result, they have gathered more than 676 million streaming service plays and a huge number of devoted fans around the world. The duo’s most famous productions come from their two studio albums “Sirens” and “Escape”.
Every year Audioriver is also visited by representatives of the top of the drum & bass scene and the same will be true for the next edition of the festival. High Contrast has been known to the fans of the genre for many years, among others thanks to the releases at Hospital Records and remixes of Adele and Imogen Heap tracks. At Audioriver, we will hear him in a unique way, as he will perform on stage with a band.
The representatives of other well-known label, Afterlife, are the Giovanelli brothers, known as Mathame. They gained fame thanks to the songs “Skywalking” and “Nothing Around Us” – both productions were put on sets of many electronic top artists, headed by Tale Of Us. Their sets are also becoming more and more popular, which is confirmed by the number of views of the performance recorded in Mexico by Cercle television. Within 10 months, the recording was watched by over 2 500,000 people.
The artist who has been on stage much longer than Mathame is Len Faki. He is a great DJ, producer, and creator of the respected label Figure, which has over 100 releases in its catalogue. This is not the end when it comes to more energetic electronic sounds. Paula Temple has been showing the world her own vision of techno for years, cooperating with R&S Records and 50 Weapons, for example, and SNTS is famous for its harsh, dark and live performances. At Audioriver, Paula Temple and SNTS will play together and it will be their first such performance in Poland.
At the 15th edition of the festival we will also hear Baasch – vocalist, music producer, composer and songwriter. Baasch’s music is a mixture of mesmerizing evocative vocal, dark sounds and catchy melodies. The artist has developed his own recognizable style, moving smoothly between electronic music and synth-pop.
Audioriver will take place in Plock on 23-25 July 2021. Tickets: https://bit.ly/35MX0wP
