Nibirii Festival

Nibirii Festival reveals full lineup and two warm-up parties for this summer

Nibirii Festival 2023 will feature 76 artists from 3 genres who will perform on 4 stages over 3 days of pure contemplation.

It is time to gather the tribe and bring the Nibirii Festival back to life, this time for a truly ambitious edition. This year, for the first time, the Nibirii Festival will be spread over three days with no shortage of music. The lineup is finally concluded and it has not disappointed, quite the contrary. Many more names, including your favourite artists, have been added to those already announced. In total, Nibirii Festival 2023 features 76 artists who will thrill Nibirians for three days. From August 25 to 27, all roads lead to Dürener Badesee.

The Nibirii Festival is a moment of true contemplation and musical communion where fans of various musical genres can enjoy an incredible setting and listen to the most prominent acts of each circuit. The three genres represented at this festival are drum and bass, goa/psytrance and techno. For each of these genres, there will be an exclusively dedicated stage designed to represent the vibe inherent to each type of music. Additionally, the Nibirii Festival this year will feature a fourth stage, which will serve as a hybrid platform for all the genres celebrated at the festival.

So let’s debride the powerful lineup. Let’s start with Friday. On the techno stage on day one, you will be able to find plenty of heavyweights like 999999999, Alignment or I Hate Models. On the goa stage, Audiomatic, Bliss and Ghost Rider are some of the artists rocking with the soundsystem. Gourski, Lyne and many more will be giving their all for drum and bass. Giving sound to the hidden stage will be a mix of great talents such as Gregor Tresher, Oliver Schories or Teenage Mutants.

For Sunday, the Nibirii Festival has reserved an upbeat techno rave. At the helm will be Neon Graveyard, Charlie Sparks, Trym and the iconic Nico Moreno. Exciting isn’t it? If you haven’t got a ticket for this year’s Nibirii Festival yet, hurry up. Find tickets here.


Because August still seems far away, Nibirii Festival will have two warm-up parties and one of them is already this month. On May 28 Bootshaus will host a festival pre-party. From 10 pm until dawn, the three interior rooms of the club will be dedicated to psytrance, drum and bass and also techno. Luude, Koven, Marika Rossa and Necmi are some of the names you’ll be able to hear that night. You can find tickets here.

Later in July, the Nibirii Festival will take place again, this time at JunkYard in Dortmund. In an intense day and night session, you will be able to hear some of the artists that are coming in August at the Dürener Badesee like Gourski or Zeuz. Find out more about this event here.
