Nostromo takes place in on a private site in the middle of nature, in Samazan, in the Lot-et- Garonne area of France. Two stages will be set on four hectares of wooded park, one with a focus on the international scene, while the other will focus on music collectives from all over France. A camp is made available to the participants, more than 40 artists will take part in the adventure, with more soon to be announced. Those artists come from various different genres, inspired by electronic music as well as jazz or hip-hop, all driven by the same passion. The current lineup is listed below.
Beyond music, the visual concept of the festival is a blend of different urban cultures, modern art, futuristic architecture, and dream of space exploration; the name of the festival directly refers to the legendary Alien movie spaceship. It is, therefore, in a space and retro-futuristic setting that the participants will be welcomed, with various places to entertain, share as well as rest. Architects, carpenters, and artists work hand in hand for all the scenography and all installations on site to deliver a special setting.
