Admit it this summer has been a washout for festivals- dodgy promoters, shit weather and rubbish bills.

What about going to a festival in a 5 star hotel where it’s warm and the bill of bands are the cream of underground music?

Fancy that? then check out this great new festival in Spain called On The Sea.

§ A sophisticated selection of forty indie rock and electronic music bands.
§ Indoor concert.
§ 48 hours of uninterrupted party among palm trees and pools.
§ Festival passes include accommodation in five star appartments, villas and hotel.
§ From the 7th to 9th September in Polaris World resort (Murcia, Spain)

On The Sea is more than a festival, it’s a large private party for 1.200 people in an exclusive environment: the Polaris World resort, located next to the desert of Los Infiernos (Murcia).

Two days of non stop music played by a selected line up of forty artists, among which there are rock leyends as Michael Rother (krautrock founder in the late seventies, with bands like Neu! and Harmonia) and Chris & Cosey (former nucleus of Throbbing Gristle), and new electronic and experimental music luminaries as Factory Floor, Legowelt and DMX Krew.

This festival which somehow combines fun by the pool with good quality sound and indoor shows, will take place between the 7th and the 9th September. All tickets include admission and and accommodation in bungalows, villas with private pool, and are avalailable from 150 euro through our web.

The capacity limited to 1.200 people and the concentration of all activities within the same resort garantees a fun experience among friends, free of overcrowding and long waits at the bar.

There is a great line up including the presence of Michael Rother, which is quite an event. In his On The Sea concert, he will combine his songs composed for Neu! and Harmonia with his solo works.

Also appearing for the first time in Spain are the eletronic music pioneers Chris and Cosey, members of the seminal industrial band Throbbing Gristle and authors of a remarkable record flow.

Also on is Spectrum, the solo project of Peter Kember (Spacemen 3). The line up brings other surprises like Half Japanese, indie rock fathers and priviliged composers of pop melodies; The Membranes, one of the most unjustly unknown band from the eighties british post-punk movement, and the young Rats on Rafts.

In the electronic music area, DMX Krew, in a live show, and Jackmaster coupled with new sensations such as Factory Floor, the next big thing in electronic music as DFA knows.

The night main course include the parties dedicated to one of the most popular spanish independent label nowadays, Discos Humeantes, along with a representation of, in our opinion, the best electronic music radio dial: Intergalactic FM ”“with I-F, Alden Tyrell and Legowelt on top- and one of the most interesting techno and house labels in Europe, Moustache Records.

Definitely, one of On The Sea’s main incentives is the quality of the accommodation that is included with admission to the event. This means the posibility of staying in a five star hotel, apartments or chalets with private pool; an entrance pack including the concerts, which are available from 150 euro. Detailed information can be finded here.

Moreover, the festival has made an effort to ensure a popular pricing policy in concert bars. It should be further noted that the complex has a wide range of restaurants and cafes, and also a supermarket.

The attention to sound quality is one of the hallmarks of the festival, as the concerts will take place within two closed and intimate venues, located together within the complex.
