Monticule Festival reveals huge line-up for its fifth anniversary

Simo Cell, Zenker Brothers and Sascha Funke among others will be playing in the French countryside in June 2019.

Monticule Festival will be returning from June 19-23 with another hard-hitting line-up of experimental electronic music from the continent. Nestled in the private Domaine de Gayfié, a 90 minute drive from Toulouse-Blagnac airport, the intimate event boasts astonishing views and palatial countryside which make for a luxurious setting for electronic music.

Also returning to Monticule are Malka Tuti label bosses, Asaf Samuel and Katzele, hailing from Tel Aviv, their label prides itself on a boundless approach to sonic experimentation adding a melodious element to festival, best enjoyed in the Toulousian sun.

Monticule founder Eric Schönemeier says: “It's not just the music selection, but also the stages, drinks, workshops and atmosphere that follow our "tailor-made" line. Our aim is to make people's souls and bodies feel better when they leave the festival than before they arrived."

Across 4 stages, including an ambient dome, artists will be playing poolside, in the barn stage or on the forest stage over the course of 5 days. In addition, there are a whole host of daytime activities from yoga and horse riding to astronomy lessons as well as access to a waterfall and swimming hole. In line with Toulouse’s culinary reputation, the festival works closely with local producers and food trucks to offer a range of choices for festival-goers.

Tickets are available here.
