Inti festival is a unique experience, marrying cultural, ecological and music in one of the most diverse climates of the world. Running since 2010 on the beautiful Asia beach, just outside of Lima, the capital of Peru, Inti festival communicates elements of the rich history of the country while educating its attendees on global issues through eco art projects, all the while showcasing the finest electronic music from the underground heroes of the world.
This year’s Inti fest will focus on water, educating on the fascinating Peruvian culture and inviting those in attendance to ‘Dance For The Planet’ and appreciate mother earth. The fourth episode will bring over twenty local and international artists to the event. Bringing superstar DJs such as Ovum techno maestro Josh Wink to globetrotter Lee Burridge, alongside technical wizards Adultnapper, Guillaume & The Coutu Dumonts fresh from his last album on Circus Company, and Dan Berkson & James What, a duo famed for stealth releases on hot labels Poker Flat and Crosstown Rebels.
Another charmer from the Rebels camp, Clive Henry will perform as well as the dexterous Bill Patrick and Visionquest’s latest album star, Cesar Merveille and his Cadenza label mate, Reboot. Inti fest brings artists from all corners of the globe with Droog stepping up from Los Angeles, Geddes and Anthea coming in from their London base to debut at the event, the Israeli Wolf + Lamb wonder Maayan Nidam and French electronic partnership Masomenos will play alongside local artists such as Lima resident Jay Haze, Andres Dyer and many more.
CONSERVATION & SUSTAINABILITY
As one of the only events in Lima to take place on a beach, Inti has a focus on conservation with incentives for the minimisation of waste including EcoArt, a call to artists and collectives to develop proposals to recycle plastic collected throughout the year in a project called ‘I Collaborate’. Five winners will be awarded areas within the festival for their environmental projects. 3R Market invites artists to showcase and sell unique, affordable and ecological artistic products that are at least 80% recycled. There is a chance to learn about indigenous communities in association with IAPICC. The third largest ethnic group in the country, Shipibo that have a vast cultural and linguistic diversity will give talks on their experiences in their own communities, speaking about the way they see the world always living in harmony with our planet.
Reusable cups purchased at the gate are the only option for drinking aside from bottles. Free water, beer or soft drinks will be given in
exchange for every ten empty bottles returned. A large 3km beach clean will be undertaken following the event in March to maximize the ecological message and minimize the problem of marine pollution.
HISTORY & MUSIC
Ancient Peruvians uplifted their spirits through music to connect their awareness with the natural world. They used it to communicate with their gods, demonstrate gratitude and implore the fearful God of the Water who fertilizes the Pachamama (the Mother Earth) to irrigate their plants and crops. As it was for them, music is also the offering at Inti Fest. Its programme continually presents artists at the forefront of electronic dance music with previous guests including Soul Clap, Heidi and Steve Bug. For the 4th
edition of the festival, 4Beats Peru will once again place key figures from the history of the dance landscape alongside some of the most exciting emerging artists.
The 2013 Inti Fest also explores the enigmatic Nazca, a pre Incan ancient culture that inhabited Peru between 100BC and 600AC. The Nazca gave focus to the basic element of life, water, considered by the ancient Peruvians to be supernatural. They flourished on the coastal plain of Southern Peru and are infamous for the Nazca lines, a set of geometrical designs that depict animals and human figures, some of which are a few hundred metres wide and only viewable by air.
Inti’s focus on water is in line with the Nazca culture as they habited an extremely arid land and evidence suggests their methods of irrigation and survival tactics worsened the effects of the extreme droughts and flooding they experiences, perhaps responsible for wiping out the population so becoming one of the earliest cultures to experience the onset of manmade climate change. The Chacana space in the centre of the festival will host information on the Nazca culture.
The ancient rituals of Peru were linked to the concept of “ayni”, an assumption that states it’s essential for one to give in order to receive. This was the essence of how they practiced life and understood the world. Inti Fest mimics these core values and concepts, a festival that celebrates nature through music and acts as a modern representation of this gratefulness for Mother Earth.
