Sustain-Release finalises line-up for 2016 edition

Antenes, Shanti Celeste, Anthony Naples and DJ Richard are among the new names announced. 

Last month saw Sustain-Release organisers Aurora Halal and Zara Wladawsky announce an initial round of names for the festival’s third edition due to take place on September 16-18 that maintained the standards of quality from the off. DJ Sprinkles, Lena Willikens, Umfang, Voiski, DJ Stingray and Container all spoke to the excellent music tastes of Sustain-Release. In the interim period since those names were announced, Sustain-Release have had to overcome the logistical issue of relocating from Camp Lakota to another location nearby in Camp Kennybrook, and overnight saw them spread news of the complete line-up.

Running through the new names in the order they are set to appear, Friday’s main stage sees the already announced closer DJ Sprinkles joined by Honey Dijon, and Acting Press co-founder PLO Man with local NYC pair DJ Wey and Will DiMaggio responsible for opening proceedings under their Sweet And Low banner. A darker hue can be found at the Bossa Stage on Friday with Juno Plus favourite Antenes (pictured above) set to play live and 1080p associate Max McFerren providing an extended opening set to complement the already announced DJ Stingray, Container and UMFANG.

DJ Sprinkles is pencilled in to open Saturday at Sustain-Release with a lecture entitled Secrecy Wave Manifesto which, weather permitting, will take place in a “forest clearing across the pond.” Musically, Saturday daytime sees Anthony Naples, 1080p founder Rich McFarlane and Idle Hands affiliate Shanti Celeste provide selections as the night draws in. Rising Berlin selector Dr. Rubinstein will close out the main stage, whilst the inimitable Phil Moffa and DJ Richard both perform live. Sustain-Release’s consideration for performance art is given a platform once again as Greg Zifcak is granted a main stage slot to unveil a “10min strobe-light-based performance that stretches perceptions of space and time.”

Optimo will be joined at the Bossa Stage on Saturday night by recent Juno Plus podcaster Huerco S. and live sets from Sustain-Release figureheads Ital and Aurora Halal. Festival residents The Long Count Cycle will open proceedings that night. A further note of intrigue for the festival is an ambient tent set to operate all weekend by a campfire replete with tailored playlists from RVNG zenmaster Matt Werth, Brian Sweeney of Body Actualized Center repute and Adrian Rew.

A further and final allocation of members-only tickets for Sustain-Release was made available to coincide with this exciting round of names. Head over to the official festival site for more details on purchase and the aforementioned artists.

Sustain-Release takes place on September 16-18.
