Moodymann, Kode9, Martyn, Stacey Pullen to Play Netherlands' Source Festival
The Netherlands city of Utrecht (about 30 minutes from Amsterdam) would certainly be a good place to find yourself on the first weekend of July, as the town will be hosting the 2011 edition of the Source Festival (quick warning—the website might be hard to navigate unless you read Dutch). The two-day festival (Saturday, July 2 and Sunday, July 3) has put together quite the line-up for its outdoor party with names like Kompakt dream-team Supermayer, UK epic beatsmith Bonobo (who will be performing live with a full band), and international electro-party duo Modeselektor rounding out the headlining spots. But the names don't stop there—the list just keeps going with the likes of Tensnake, Pearson Sound, Nosaj Thing (live), Martyn, Kode9, Moodymann, Stacey Pullen (pictured above), Rainbow Arabia (live), and more gracing two stages at Utrecht's Middelwaard Vianen recreation area. Unfortunate that it's all going down so far from the XLR8R headquarters for us to partake, but anyone lucky enough to find themselves near Utrecht would be silly to miss either day. You can check the full line-up here (again, in Dutch) and head here to purchase tickets (where you'll find an option for English text).
