Re-watch our marathon of sets on the longest day of the year
Take a peek at the 16-hour stream, the Longest Set of Summer
Need some good vibes to get you through your week? Look no further - we’ve got just the thing.
On the longest day of the year, Mixmag and Zalando joined forces to create The Longest Set of Summer, headlined by Ellen Allien and Channel Tres (pictured).
Monday, June 21, saw a 16 hours 38-minutes-long stream featuring 15 artists across the globe playing consecutively throughout the day, starting at 6.30am CEST. As part of Zalando’s efforts to bring positivity this summer through its Festival Of Optimism, The Longest Set Of Summer took place as the last part of the campaign which ran throughout June.
If you’re searching for a little pick-me-up, or want to hop back into the boogie and re-watch the sets from the 16-hour showcase, you can watch all of the videos below.
Fabio Della Torre
Early risers got the chance to catch the first set headed up by Bosconi Records boss Fabio della Torre at 6.30am amid the rolling hills of Florence, firing a wake-up deep house set to the first viewers of the day.
Taking over from the Italian producer at 7.45am, Polish DJ Tycjana Acquasanta brought a selection of beats direct from a sky loft in Warsaw.
Changing up the mood for his 8.30am slot, Tender Games delivered a soul and disco set straight from a luscious Berlin garden. Viewers got an early morning boogie with this hour-long set.
In comes the first headliner of the day: Channel Tres. Direct from a sunny LA rooftop, the rap-come-house artist brought the party with an ecstatic house set backed by a small crowd who danced along for the hour-long slot. Check out that skyline!
Addict Sound - NobodyListen b2b Kewu
Up next: Czech duo Addict Sound. Bringing a heavier set from the rooftops of Prague suited for an early morning rave, NobodyListen played b2b with Kewu on this sunny AM party.
Transferring the virtual energy from Barcelona’s Bridge 48, Argentina’s Sofia Gabanna gave a tireless rap performance straight from the sunny city.
Easing us into the afternoon, French electro-pop duo The Pirouettes came direct from the green forests of Paris, with the sun beating down.
Ricardo Baez & Tropical Animals Collective
As the clock struck midday, Italian collective Tropical Animals and Ricardo Baez took us through the afternoon with an hour-and-a-half of uplifting house and disco. Dancers took to the floor at Palms Studio in Florence as the DJs shifted, playing back-to-back.
House Gospel Choir
Straight from one vibe to the next, the UK's House Gospel Choir took over from 1.30pm with a soulful take on some classics (such as Crystal Waters' 'Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)', throwing a few modern hits into the mix as well. Preforming from an east London garden, the choir brought the positivity with their house renditions.
An afternoon takeover from Cici came next, who rolled out some feel-good tunes next to a stunning Ibiza pool and villa, sunglasses at the ready. The hour-long house set took us through to the evening.
With a sunshine set direct from London’s Hackney canals, ABSOLUTE. unleashed a sizzling house and disco show to a slew of dancers atop a canal boat.
Taking us through to 6pm, SYREETA fuelled the greenery of a yurt campsite with a pumping selection of 4/4 beats. The house and techno set streamed direct from the UK, where the sunshine poured over the rolling fields.
Next up: Netherlands’ William Djoko. From the same Ibiza villa graced by Cici just hours earlier, the Dutch DJ brought a groovy house set to the early evening viewers backed by a crowd of palm trees.
Our final headliner Ellen Allien delivered a scorching 75-minute techno set from the back streets of Berlin. The DJ set up below Berlin’s industrial railway arches, perfectly apt for her industrial showcase.
Our final performance came from none other than '90s legend Robin S. For a short 10-minute slot, the singer closed The Longest Set Of Summer with a powerful performance of her hit track ‘Show Me Love’. From Soul Asylum Studios in Atlanta, the singer delivered the last portion of positivity to the 11pm viewers.
