Ammara
// ELECTRONIC PROG TECH TRANCE

Inspired a great deal by the vast desert sky, Ammara will be a faultless union of big, bad and booming thump. Night after night for four days at a stretch, this stage will host acts that will show you, all the way to the wee hours of dawn, exactly why you’ve always wanted to move like Jagger. A crowd magnet straight out the top drawer, Ammara will help you watch the moon make conversation with stars. Word(s) of advice: turn up, tune in and let the bass drop.
