In the run-up to its eighth edition, the Elevate Festival will visit a few selected shows and festivals within this year's tour:

The tour kicks off on the 8th of September at Dimensions Festival, which is the new festival run by the same team as the successful Outlook Festival, both taking place in Pula, Croatia. As part of the Festival's boat parties, the Elevate Boat will welcome Graz's Simon/off and doze, who will be joined by UK's Addison Groove and Seiji, as well as the dutch producer A Made Up Sound/2562.


Next stop will be Bozen in South Tyrol at the famous Transart Festival, which offers music projects and contemporary art to a curious and open-minded audience. Elevate hosts an evening on the 28th of September featuring the US house-legend Theo Parrish, Austria's Dorian Concept, Ogris Debris and F. Puschmann, as well as Italy's David Silver. Graz's luX will take care of the visuals.


On September 29th Elevate joins forces with Forum Stadtpark for the second “Elevate Tripledecker” in Graz, presenting a line-up of both national and international acts to perform on all three floors of the venue.

Kathrin Hartmann's new book „Wir müssen leider draußen bleiben- Die neue Armut in der Konsumgesellschaft“ will be presented in cooperation with Attac Graz and Max Höfler will team up with zweite liga für kunst und kultur to get to the bottom of this year's festival theme - “Elevate The Apocalypse?”
