We’ll be back at the Italian festival this July.

Crack Magazine is excited to be hosting a stage at this year’s Ortigia Sound System Festival, taking place from 26-30 July on the Sicilian island of Ortigia. On 30 July, former cover stars Eris Drew and Octo Octa will play out on the Crack Magazine stage, with sets from DJ Plead, BADSISTA and HHY and the Kampala Unit also confirmed for the upcoming event. Take a look at an announcement post below.

Elsewhere, the line-up for Ortigia Sound System’s forthcoming edition – the event’s ninth overall – features DJ sets and concerts performed by artists such as Space Afrika, Lucrecia Dalt, Joy Orbison, Arushi Jain and Marina Herlop. There will also be a Hyperdub label showcase featuring the likes of Kode9, Ikonika and Scratchclart.
