Lac Belot is one of the most fascinating new Finnish artists. With the ambition of a charismatic singer combined with orchestrated art pop the vibe put into one word is captivating. The timeless beautiful tunes take its listener to somewhere between the garden of Eden and the fairytales of Lewis Carroll, where whispers become massive storms only to suddenly find the storm to have broken back into calmness.
Lac Belot’s debut album "ABRACARABRA! was released in September 2018 and has been praised to be one of the best albums of the year. It’s been described as being an exceptionally convincing piece that both surprises and crawls under your skin.
Saturday’s Heartful Party starting at 20:00, Main Stage
Maajo is a rare tropical breeze coming from cold Finland. The group is inspired by wanderlust, exotic mysticism, hedonistic travelling and David Attenborough. Maajo's beating heart is a modern club rhythm, circulating with traditional western and African instrumentation. The emotions reach far and wide, from a euphoric Balearic sunrise to a sweaty trek through the rainforest.
Maajo has received support by some of the globes most respected music selectors and have performed at festivals such as Gather in Stockholm, Present Perfect in St. Petersburg and Under the Bridge in Helsinki.
Aside from his continuous gigs all over Finland, Oded has DJ'ed in over 20 different countries. From warming up Underworld on their Baltic tour, to the legendary Ministry of Sound in London and never forgetting his sunset gigs in magical Bali. Oded always aims to give the crowd something they are looking for, but more than that, give them that feeling like it's the first time, every-time. At Magnesia expect an especially uplifting and soulful set, but the musical director of the festival.
COOL DJ PINBALL
DJ Pinball aka Heikki Vaht is a true professional who’s known for his versatile feet moving DJ sets. He started his DJ career already in the early 90s in Estonia and he’s also been empowering the Finnish nightlife for a long time, enough to leave a mark. Today he runs the record store Tanner by day and makes the dance floors set on fire by night. Heikki is always looking for the best treats for his record store from Finland and abroad and from his vast collection he’ll gather up just the right sound to fit the needs of the late summer vibe of Magnesia Festival.
Heidi Mari’s love for movement and connection through music drove her from Lahti to Helsinki and from there to Berlin, where everything clicked. Finding her own sound in the mecca of nightlife resulted in gigs at clubs such as Ipse, Arena and Chalet in Berlin and Ääniwalli and Kaiku in Helsinki. Heidi Mari implements her yoga & meditation practice into her carefully selected DJ sets and is preparing a spiritual musical journey for Magnesia Festival.
Music for your body, mind and soul.
