There's a festival taking place in a 180-year-old industrial mine this summer.
Beats For Love will run from 3rd to 6th July at Industrial Areal Dolní Vítkovice, in Ostrava, eastern Czech Republic — the facility closed in 1998.
Rather than hard-hat-wearing workers, then, this year the site will host the likes of Don Diablo, Oliver Heldens, Sven Väth, High Contrast Band, Wilkinson, Netsky, Ed Rush, Thomas Schumacher and the highest house entry in DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs 2018 poll, Claptone, to name but a few.
Those responsible for the four-day gathering aren't the only promoters we know of that have drilled deep in search of a raw party location. In Germany, Essen's Zollverein complex, for example, has been hosting raves for many years.
