The electronica touring festival referred to as Organic for the past few
months, will actually be called Chaotica and will kick off with five shows in
July, followed by 15 in September.
The festival, which will be similar to
the one-off event held in the San Bernadino National Forest recreation area in
Big Bear, California last summer is, according to a source close to the
action, expected to feature ("90% sure") the
Chemical Brothers (see feature in current issue of ATN), Prodigy, The Orb and
Meat Beat Manifesto.
Chaotica events will be held in sports arenas, with a main stage and a "smaller
room in the back" that will house a rotating slate of DJs. There will also be
DJs on the main stage before and in-between acts.
The concerts, which
organizers hope will run from approximately 9 p.m. until 4 a.m. (depending on
curfew laws) will be eight hours long and feature between 10 and 12 bands.
