Freqs of Nature Festival 2018 – The Final Edition

– the end –

With the end of 2018 we finished the entire chapter of Freqs of Nature Festival. All in the festival involved companies are closed down and the F.O.N. crew as a whole will do no further events.

We loved the last edition as much as we loved all the 7th years and we are deeply grateful we got to share this experiences with all of you!
As we previously stated we feel we have archived what wanted with this project and we decided the peak moment of the festival concept development is the best one to stop.

Every event series has a peak moment where the cultural and artistic content reaches the threshold of what the concept allows and even through it might be possible to continue an event commercially successful from that point the core creative heart will go down.

There has been two likely ways for the festival to develop too, one was it would have went commercially orientated and the other was we would have had a decreasing extent of content and evolution wich for us both has never really been an option.

Besides the artistic integrity reasons there are many personal as well. We, the 7 main organizers, invested most of our time into the festival for 8 contentious years and now there are other things we want to dedicate our lives to, might it be family, art, health, other businesses or events.

So once again we want to thank everybody from the bottom of our hearts, our amazing crew who put all their creative and physical best into the festival and our dear guests who in the end, by participating, made the festival to what it was.

With love, your F.O.N crew

Pictures 2018

The 2018 edition will be the last Freqs of Nature!

To quit while you´re ahead or as we say in German: Aufhören wenns am schönsten ist.

We didn’t intent to make this announcement before this years edition as we wanted to celebrate one last time like there is no tomorrow and with the smallest possible worries. But as we should have expected, rumours got the better of us and to avoid false informations to be spread we feel we have to make it official that after this years 7th edition the story of Freqs Of Nature Festival will end.

There are many reasons for this step and to explain all of them would exceed the scope of a social media post, we might do another statement after the festival this year but for now we want to keep it as short as possible.

The main reason we are ending this project is that we feel we have achieved what we wanted with this concept and that we got with this years line up and creative concept to our personal visionary maximum! We just don’t want to do what many others did and keep riding a successful concept just for economical reasons.

We also reached a point by constant processing and bringing things to newer levels that costs are raising constantly, but the amount of guests have been staying the same and again we would need to become more commercial to support the always growing extend of the festival program. Freqs of Nature has always been about innovating, experimenting, exploring and evolving, and to us this project is way to dear and to precious to be running it down or turning it into something we never wanted it to be.

Another factor is that times have changed over the last 8 years that we have worked on this project and many things such as laws and tax regulations are not supporting an underground artistic concept like ours anymore, for us to follow all the new regulations the bureaucratic extend is taking to much time and leaves less and less room for our creative work.

Ending this project doesn’t mean we gonna disappear from the face of the world, we are all going to keep doing what we do best. A big part of the crew who has always been doing the amazing new years indoor festival Odyssee will now have more time to make this event even more incredible. Ankur & Naty Seres who have been in charge of the creative concept and booking selection are going to concentrate on their own music and use their expertise on their sets and on their label Atmophile Electronics to keep pushing boundaries of electronic music and keep supporting beautiful and peculiar art.

We never know what the future brings, we might even do an event all together next year or in two years at the same place with a new far less complex and smaller concept, but for sure Freqs Of Nature ends in 2018.

Let’s concentrate our energy on making the final edition of Freqs of Nature the most memorable and outstanding experience of all of them and celebrate one last time as the strong and extraordinary family we feel we have become.

Much love, your FON Team <3

Music

Forest Floor

Concept

The Forest-Floor is our melting pot for extreme and experimental music. Multi-layered sound arrangements and driving grooves are selected to let you dive deep in to your own imagination.

A carefully chosen selection of some of the finest efficient dance music and complex sound experiments with a tendency to twist your reality and change your perspective of the already known.

A bold mixture of extreme genres starting off every night with our favourite Breakcore and Drum&Bass artists followed by daily more than 12 hours of the most peculiar psychedelic trance of the faster kind from deep and organic Forest-Trance, over Dark-Psychedelic and Hi-Tech to Psycore.

LineUp

Groove Floor

Concept

The Groove Floor concept is about driving grooves, deep rhythms, detailed musical arrangements and psychedelic atmospheres on uplifting beats. Besides the known and often heard experts we selected some amazingly talented new-comers to present fresh tunes with innovative ideas.

Deep to weird minimal techno, peculiar Tech-House and the finest Progressive/Psygressive mixed in a carefully planed concept for your dancing pleasures.

LineUp

Kreuz&Quer

Concept

Following the concept of the past editions, the emphasis of the Kreuz[&]Quer Floor Lineup is to present a selection of some of today’s most daring sound artist’s. Inspired to merge new forms of modern electronica connecting them with an overriding interest in elements of percussive tonality, ever growing sounds and atmospherics, evolving into playfulness rhythms to create a multilayered journey of hypnotic dilations of time and space. It will be hold in a chilled out valley surrounded by trees and nature enclosed with various art projects.

Our Rela(x)pedimental Floor is maturing in it´s style. Going more experimental we managed to invite a fine selection of IDM and avant-garde artists who will present relaxed, yet tasteful weird electronica.
