On Saturday afternoon, the festival is entirely devoted to the Arab Spring. Following films, workshops and a talk show as part of The S(h)equel programme, DJ mps Pilot will take the stage. mps PILOT expressively and irresistibly combines traditional and modern 21th-century styles from Asia, Africa and the Middle East. mps PILOT turns beatmatching into a form of art. He organically weaves Kuduro, Balkan beats, Brazilian drum 'n' bass, flamenco, Indian Desi beats and Latin percussion solos and much more styles into a ‘total performance’. Apart from well-known Amsterdam venues such as The Sugar Factory, Paradiso, and the Melkweg (Milky Way), mps PILOT performed at festivals including Dancevalley, Mysteryland and Lowlands, and his fame has spread to countries as far as India and Senegal.
