] EVEN DWARFS STARTED SMALL [
Publish Date: 04/06/2020
Looking back we realized how big we have grown from first Mo:Dem edition up until the present time. We learned a lot in this process, especially in communication with you. Our mission was to implement this knowledge into building a bigger but more accessible and humane Festival. Our vision was to continuously break the boundaries of technical and artistic production.
Indubitably, things change and evolve but during all years we stayed true to our preliminary vision and mission. With time random visitors became every year regulars and fans, volunteers became a team, the crew became a family... Today, with great confidence we can say that we've come a long way together and only together we can overcome the unpredictable times ahead of us.
UPDATES & UPGRADES - S01E03
Some time ago we abandoned the outdated concept that divides musical genres on „main“ and „alternative“. We firmly believed each segment of Mo:Dem Festival deserves equal treatment and approach. Year by year, ever since, The Swamp stage is growing and evolving. When Daniel Popper joined our artistic team unthinkable possibilities opened up in front of us. The synergy between his larger-than-life sculpture and our in-house VJ's headed by DeltaProcess transformed The Swamp into a new dancefloor experience. Can you imagine what the future brings? Here is a (partial) list of our future upgrades.
DANCEFLOOR & THE STAGE
The new version of The Swamp will feature both upgrades from Daniel Popper and upcycled DNA installation from The Hive. We carefully studied our notes and your suggestions from previous editions to establish better flow and comfort on the dancefloor.
* Styles change and vary but concept and idea stay the same; delivering psychedelic and trippy music for your mind and body!
A new bar is produced and built by Alexandre Hubert, half of the ABject posse that is responsible for the stage concept on The Swamp. A new design will follow the same philosophy and aesthetics of pagoda-shaped DJ booths. The old bar is demolished and its parts are being used.
* Remember the three R's - reduce, reuse and recycle!
A communal kitchen with cooking and barbecue place is going to be a new addition to the food court and restaurant area. This space is intended for all our visitors and will provide them an opportunity to prepare and cook their own meals. This way we want to provide accessibility to cheaper and nutritious hot meals for attendees with lower incomes.
* Food and meal sharing or testing ingredients bought from the local market are more than welcome at the communal kitchen area!
Mo:Dem Festival's crowdfunding campaign will kick-off very soon. We will reveal the details in the following days, so stay tuned for news and updates.
Love. Passion. Commitment.
