Rema, the Nigerian artist who convinced the whole world to rediscover Afrobeat rhythms, completes the line-up announced for Electric Castle 2024. Along with Massive Attack, Bring Me The Horizon, Queens of The Stone Age, Chase and Status, Sean Paul and Paolo Nutini, Rema will be present on the main stage of the festival, between July 17 and 21.

With 57 consecutive weeks in the Billboard Hot 100, an absolute record for one of the most important charts in the music industry, "Calm Down" was the unmissable hit on the dance floors in 2023. Rema thus became the first African artist which crossed the 1 billion Spotify mark, and the song managed to challenge the whole world to discover a complex artist and a new creative direction in Afrobeat music. His debut album Rave & Roses Ultra bears the imprint of Nigerian music, but is full of influences from trap, electro and even jazz, a style that Rema defines as afrorave and which has convinced personalities like Barrack Obama to recommend his tracks.

The show scheduled for Electric Castle will include all of the artist's hits, from "Dumebi" to "Iron Man" and "Soundgasm", but Rema is increasingly mentioning new projects with big names in American rap, which would come next to materialize in the near future. With a bit of luck, Romanian fans will have the chance to listen to them live at the festival.

Electric Castle also confirms Ricardo Villalobos, one of the most influential producers on the minimal-techno scene. At the forefront of electronic music for over 20 years, Villalobos is inventive, flamboyant, very little interested in success, but obsessed with discovering new approaches to music. The DJ who imposed a surprising level of subtlety in the electro style will be present on the Dance Garden Stage, along with the other 35 artists proposed in the Sunrise Takeover.

The date of April 24 a.c. is the last day on which Electric Castle subscriptions can still be purchased at the price of 139 Euros (plus taxes).
