BEON1X Open Mind Music Festival has been announced to become the largest electronic music festival on an island with its 30 000 visitors, lined-up by British DJ Carl Cox and other top European DJs.
The festival is planned to become the first stage and the opening event of a unique international socio-cultural project introduced in Cyprus, which is set to become one of the largest art clusters in the world.
The return of festivals and live events is driven home by the launch of BEON1X Open Mind Music Festival, a brand-new electronic music festival, which will be held in Larnaca, Cyprus from 23rd – 25th September and 30th September to 2nd October.
The festival boasts a world class line-up, including over 40 names: Carl Cox, Boris Brejcha, Jamie Jones, Luciano, Paul Kalkbrenner live, Satori live, Sasha & Digweed, Sven Väth, Deborah De Luca, Chelina Manuhutu, Fatima Hajji, Guy J and others. Each of the selected tracks and sessions at the festival offer sounds from every corner of the world, as well as a reconnection with live music after two years of the pandemic.
Organizers promise over 20 000 m2 of the dance floor and stages, located right by the sea in CTO beach, Pyla, 11 km from Larnaca. City of Larnaca itself is rich with a history and culture. In addition to music, visitors can expect beach football, water sports, food and drinks and a whole weekend of real buzz. The special mix is part of a series of special compilations to celebrate the end of the summer.
"This is going to be our first festival in Cyprus, but we expect it to be groundbreaking,” added BEON1X team.
“It is the kind of event you are going to remember for a long time and look forward to every year. Each person will feel harmony of nature and music with every cell in their body.
“But this is more than just another festival - it is the first chord of a unique international art cluster, which we are launching with this event. The festival launches a huge ambitious project that will become both 'Burning Man' and Casablanca for the European continent at once.
“You will soon hear more about it. So don't miss out on the opportunity to be part of a great new cultural history, grab some friends and extend your festival season for another month".
The team behind the Open Mind Music Festival plan to develop this project and make it the starting point for a large scale BEON1X Art Cluster - envisioned as a unique international socio-cultural project organized by representatives of the international business and IT communities who have based themselves in Cyprus.
The goal of the project is to create a new and completely unique location in Cyprus, the European ‘Openmind Island’, which will become Europe's largest art cluster, will be located at the crossroads of several continents, and will attract people from all over the world, combining the best in music, art, and ecology, mixed with the values of humanity, aimed at delivering real positive transformation.
The delivery of the BEON1X project will be phased over a period of three years from 2022 to 2025, and during this time the art cluster will become one of the world’s largest socio-cultural hubs.
