This Halloween, Terminal V Festival will be taking to Edinburgh over two days for the first time in its history. Showcasing some of the biggest names in house and techno, fan favourites including Tale Of Us, Alan Fitzpatrick, Deborah De Luca, and many more are due to perform.
Taking place between Saturday 30th – Sunday 31st October at the Royal Highlands Centre, the announcement comes as England’s Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, revealed plans to reduce lockdown restrictions on June 21st.
From its launch in 2017, the event has grown into one of the most unique and largest indoor music festivals in Europe. 2021’s show has been two years in the making, leading to the organisers promising a ‘gigantic celebration’ – something which music fans have been eagerly anticipating. Branching out globally, Terminal V is also launching a new Berlin event for 2022. Although their usual stomping ground in Edinburgh, considered a ‘pure techno city’ by fans, will remain the ‘flagship and home of the brand’.
The stacked Halloween lineup has something for everyone, with an extensive selection of artists covering every corner of electronic music, alongside emerging underground talent. The creative genius of KiNK will see his famous live show in action, alongside techno royalty Robert Hood who will also play as the duo Floorplan with his daughter.
Tech house mainstays Solardo and Eli Brown and will have the infectious basslines covered, while Honey Dijon, The Blessed Madonna and Octo Octa bring the groovy house & disco.
Elsewhere, techno’s brightest talents in the form of Paula Temple, FJAAK, I Hate Models and Dax J are also set to play, as well as industry legends such as Sven Vath, Derrick Carter and Maceo Plex. There’s simply too many more names to list out individually, so check out the full lineup below!
