Arona Summer Festival  #ASF2017

Arona Summer Festival (ASF) has not been able to have greater momentum in the beginning of the launching of what will be its seventh edition, that will be carried out the 5 of August 2017. Last week, during a limited period of 48 hours, the festival managed to ship 5,000 tickets, which was the best sales start of its entire history. And he did, at that point, with the sole and main claim of American dj Steve Aoki as headliner. Another of the innovations announced by the ASF in this promotion period is its new location: the Amarilla Golf de San Miguel.


The organization has already announced the second confirmed artist, Atica, who was present last year and became one of the great winners of that 2016 edition. Attica has made a name recognized and reputed in the world Of electronic music in a short space of time, participating during the last year in several of the major international record labels. The soul of Atica is the DJ and Spanish producer Pablo de Rosacruz, a true and complete showman that surprises the public with both his musical proposal and his worked offer of visuals.

After the initial success, and with the announcement of Atica, the ASF will open again the ticket sales next Wednesday with the following prices: 35 euros Summer zone, 70 free drink and 25 camping zone. In addition, during the first 48 hours buyers of the tickets will also carry a gift of merchandising.

At the moment, the announcement of Steve Aoki as headliner has even exceeded the expectations of the organization itself. With more than 250 performances a year and considered by many the world’s best dj, the American dj began his exploits as an artist at the Santa Barbara Student Housing Cooperative. He eventually became the creator of Dim Mak in 1996, when he was just 20, a record label that not only produces other electrohouse DJs like MSTRKRFT, The Bloody Breetoors, Klaxons, Scanners or Mystery Jets ; Dim Mak has become a brand at the service of avant-garde culture through music, fashion, events and technology. Steve Aoki is a global artist, a leading entrepreneur in cutting-edge leisure.

After Aoki released his debut album in January 2008, “Pillowface and His Airplane Chronicles”, has continued to expand its record label around Europe and the world settling in the most prestigious festivals on the planet. It is far from being classified solely within an electronic label, as it is also due to hip hop and indie. His talent is a show of the highest quality and shares the same goal with all the artists he collaborates with: creating an incredible live experience.
