The annual three-day E-Lake festival is a celebration of live music, electronica and DJ performances.
What started in 1983, as a party for young kids with not much else to do in the summer is now a huge event on the shores of the lake near Echternach. The E-Lake festival, as it was dubbed in 2000, now features a Friday night of live concerts, a 12-hour techno and house marathon on Saturday and a disco on Sunday.
The Friday line-up includes three acts from Germany--indie band Madsen, pop-rock outfit Luxuslärm and rap artist Sammy Deluxe. Luxembourg acts include hard rock favourites Porn Queen (photo), hip-hop legend de Läb, metal band Lost In Pain and the Grand Duchy’s most successful musical export electronic ambient artist Sun Glitters.
Saturday’s array of DJs features UK based Jay Deep (who has had a residency at The Gallery @ Ministry of Sound, among other venues), UK EDM star Gareth Emery, Scottish house DJ/producer Chris Lake as well as Dubvision and local DJs Fränky de Reuter and Tasso & Mitch.
