France’s biggest electronic music festival, Electrobeach, prepares its return to the stunning Port-Barcares for its fourth official anniversary this July. In a line-up packing enough weight to make galactic waves, a celestial cast of David Guetta, Tiesto, Martin Garrix, Eric Prydz, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Hardwell, Martin Solveig and many more are amongst confirmed names for 2016.
With Electrobeach 2016 continuing to captivate crowds as it celebrates every eccentricity of the electronic music scene, its position in the festival calendar shines brightly. For those looking for a picture perfect setting and pitch perfect sound, its three-day offering is an unmissable one. Constituting a solar system of acts big enough to have orbits of their own, Electrobeach eclipses all for this year’s July 14-16 spectacular. French supernova David Guetta acts as captain, with a whole array of groundbreaking and ground-shaking artists set to join him. ‘Opus’ hitmaker Eric Prydz will make an appearance alongside Dutch superstar Martin Garrix with the Tiesto returning in triumph as do Martin Solveig and Axwell /\ Ingrosso. The festival even welcomes red carpet rebel Ruby Rose to its A-list clique, as well as Moombahton master Dillon Francis, Nike Rodger’s and Rihanna collaborator Nicky Romero and IDMA’s number 1 Global DJ Hardwell.
Upholding the French Tricolour and all the passion of its dance community, the ‘Treasured Soul’ of Michael Calfan is confirmed, as well as one of Forbes’ ’30 Under 30’s DJ Snake. This year’s Beach Stage will be purely focused on the country’s most exciting exports—welcoming the likes of Norman Doray and Gregory Klosman—and sees Electrobeach putting French DJ’s and nightclub residents at its front and center throughout the weekend. Paris’ Fun Radio are also on the scene with their specialist selectors, set to air a ‘le son dancefloor’ out of studio and under the sun; likewise, Flaix FM crash the party from Catalan to flex their own respected residents. In a festival first, Electrobeach’s patriotism will be pushed even further with a prized demonstration from the Patrouille de France—a flyover of famous flair that will fill cloudless skies in what’s set to a stunning weekend highlight.
Here’s the full lineup.

Proving themselves attuned to the meteoric rise of techno, Electrobeach’s next and last trick for 2016 is to call on the cut of crews in Cocoon, Luciano & Friends, and a yet to be announced third force. With Cocoon’s very own Sven Väth on board, the festival packs no punches with the addition of dance legend Luciano. Label residents Marcus Fix and César Merveille will represent each brand respectively, making Electrobeach’s latest expansion both equally authentic as it is exciting. Tickets are available now.
