Listen, it’s not exactly a great time to be publicly announcing an intimate, secluded, open-air beach festival. Ever since a certain festival of that likeness was disastrous enough to warrant TWO documentaries, it’s been rough going for the brand-new-getaway-music-fest industry.
But that’s not nearly enough to scare off Abyss X, whose music (for labels such as Halcyon Veil, Danse Noire and Infinite Machine) is as fearless as her festival planning tendencies. “Nature Loves Courage” will be an intimate, 350-person-only(!), two-day festival on Abyss X’s home island of Crete(!!). It will rune June 7 and 8 at the open-air venue Fortuna Club, which “carries one of the best sound systems in Greece and is just steps away from the secluded sandy beaches of Sougia, a village which is not a tourist destination but rather a tiny community with an all natural free-spirited atmosphere.”
I know, I know; normally the first question about a festival is “who’s on the lineup?” (followed closely by “are we sure Ja Rule isn’t involved in this?”), so fine, I guess let’s address that: The lineup will include sets from Aurora Halal, Juliana Huxtable, DEBONAIR, Nkisi, Rabit, Ziúr, Gabber Eleganza, DJ Paypal, Aquarian, Kilbourne, Abyss X and more TBA. Boy, that’s a lineup that would warrant a whole week of cheese and lettuce sandwiches!
“Nature Loves Courage” promises a relaxed, profound, and — yes — clothing-optional environment. Committed to its DIY nature, ticket prices have been kept affordable and a select few early bird tickets are available right now until February 15!
So go
