In late May, the Spring Attitude festival returns to Rome. 

The dance-heavy line-up takes its cue from the season the event is named for, so expect new beginnings and good vibes. In the past, the festival has featured the likes of Four Tet, Disclosure and Bonobo. Spring Attitude has a habit of breaking big names before they get big, so don’t be disheartened if you don’t recognise any of the lineup. Come next year, things could be very different.

Even so, Gold Panda’s on the books, and he’s certainly got a decent following. Everyone’s heard this, right


DJ Paypal is also set to perform. He’s got the best name in the game and his beats are sick. Observe.


It’s also worth getting excited about Acid Arab, a Parisian duo who draw on their Middle Eastern heritage to create vibrant, restless music. They’ll almost certainly serve as the soundtrack for the sunniest day of the festival.


Spring Attitude takes place on the 19, 20 and 21 May in three locations in Rome: MAXXI, Ex Caserma, Spazio Novecento. The first two are about 30 minutes from Generator Rome, the third is a bit out the way; head here for directions.
