Iconic Berlin label Pelagic Records have announced the return of their eponymous festival after a break of six years. Moving to Maastricht in the Netherlands, the team behind Pelagic Records will be celebrating fifteen years of the label over two days with an incredible line-up of Pelagic Records all-stars & special guests.

Taking place across the two rooms of Maastricht’s Muziekgieterij venue, Pelagic Fest 2024 will be headlined by the labels founders and core team The Ocean who will also seize the opportunity for a belated ten year anniversary celebration of their 2013 album ‘Pelagial’.

As the label turns fifteen in 2024, they’ve set their sights on establishing Pelagic Fest as an annual event – a regular opportunity to remove barriers and bring their artists & fans together for a true celebration of their music.

Robin Staps, Founder Pelagic Records said:

“We’re excited to bring Pelagic Fest back this year. I have been looking for the right venue for this in Berlin for years and simply had to accept that it doesn’t exist. Muziekgieterij is an amazing well-wrought place catering to the needs of both artists and audience — a place that was built to be a venue, planned by acoustic architects and at the same time offers a nice environment to hang out, chat, browse through vinyl distro boxes and chill between the performances. While we‘re beyond stoked that we‘ve managed to put this lineup together, it goes without saying that sadly not every Pelagic artist can play this year… but that leaves something to look forward to for the coming years!”
