Main Stage
Gotan Project, live
French trio Gotan Project - creators of modern tango – will headline the second night (19 June) of the festival.
Inspired by the African roots of tango and Argentine folklore, as well as the urban feel of Buenos Aires, Gotan Project manage to preserve the sexy sound of tango and mix it with electronic instruments.

With their debut album of 2001 La Revancha del Tango, they brought tango to the dancehalls and made it a top pick among many popular DJs in Europe and the US.

The music of Gotan Project is often used in television and film. Their live performances are always accompanied by a visual show to match the mood.
Different, powerful and maverick is who Gotan Project are, even in the title. The well-familiar genre tan-go turns into go-tan borrowing from the Argentinian linguistic game of switching syllables for fun.

Bluba Lu, live
Bluba Lu is one of the oldest existing underground groups in Bulgaria. It was established in the early 90ies. The core of the band are Dimitar Paskalev and Konstantin Katsarski, although many different musicians have taken part in the group through the years. The band is popular from its presence in the first independent label in Bulgaria - Yellow music (together with Wikeda, Ostava and Animatsionerite), but after the separation of the organization, he creates his own sound-recording studio and realizes many self-dependent projects. Bluba Lu has five published albums.

J&B stage
Coldcut – Energy Union Show, AV set
The Energy Union show is a brand new Coldcut audiovisual production – a ground-breaking piece of VJ cinema about Intelligent Energy. The music is ‘Journeys by DJ’ style : a 21st century montage of kicking sounds drawn from many genres, woven together by the acknowledged Grandmasters of the eclectic electric mash-up.

Goldie, DJ set
The star that dragged drum&bass out of the underground and turned it into an international mainstream movement. Among the many achievements in his career, Goldie has had collaborative projects with artists such as 3D (Massive Attack), Sarah Gregory, Bjork, Neneh Cherry, Noel Gallagher, James Lavelle, and Nellee Hooper.

HMSU, DJ set
HMSU is the leading Bulgarian drum-and-bass formation. They are not only the most successful drum&bass DJs, but also organizers of numerous events and drum&bass parties in Bulgaria.


Main Stage
Morcheeba, live
Cult-like British triphoppers Morcheeba will headline the third night of the ParkLive festival on June 20th.
The fans have a chance to experience Morcheeba’s magical new album. Morcheeba will perform with their first vocalist – Skye. It is with Skye that Morcheeba gained world popularity in the mid-nineties and their first two  albums  “Who Can You Trust?” and “Big Calm” skyrocketed to sell over 6 million copies.
She has once again joined Paul and Ross Godfrey after a solo career of seven years. Their music combines Skye's velvety voice with a pop vibe.
Melancholy and lyrical, yet positive and energetic, Morcheeba will be a genuine treat for Bulgarian fans on the last night of the festival.
