On Saturday Erlend Øye's History Lesson & Guests took over Jerolim - a nudest beach with a rustic bar to quench your thirst, fresh fruit and a generator powering the entertainment. Klaxons DJs and Mark Ronson played sun soaked alternatives to their usual banging sets, before Erlend Øye captivated the crowd with his history lesson, playing songs chronologically from 1962 to preset and telling stories. The stripped back and highly emotive performance covered Bob Dylan, Fleetwood Mac, Pet Shop Boys and his own projects King of Convenience, Röyksopp and Whitest Boy Alive, eventually luring everyone into the water for a magical pseudo-baptism. Incredible! Meanwhile the Other People crew of Nicholas Jaar, Dave Harrington and Das Moth arrived by speedboat to see the afternoon out.
Back on the mainland, Movement impressed with the first of two sets as well as the iconic and humble Neneh Cherry, joined by her two-piece Rocketnumbernine. The ferries then loaded to Carpe Diem Beach where Fort Romeau, Baio and Psychemagik dropped their individual takes on disco and house to the forrest dancefloor as the sun to rise.
The fourth and final day had everyone wishing it was everlasting. Returning to Jerolim for the Balearic Beach Specijalan, cryptic program inclusions of Zehn Schlange and Port You Know were revealed as Tensnake and Fort Romeau, alongside Cookie, Modular DJs and Danny Psychemagik who played blissed out soft rock for the summer apocalypse. Movement then smashed it again opening for DARKSIDE's phenomenal live show, followed by one last congregation at Carpe Diem with the holy trinity of Maurice Fulton, Storm Queen's Morgan Geist and Daniel Wang.
Same time next year?
