  • The first GEM Fest will happen from July 30th through August 7th in Anaklia, Georgia. Short for Georgian Electronic Music Festival, GEM Fest is a new entrant in the summer festival market. Held in the Black Sea resort town for a whole week, GEM is intended as a "multi-platform festival to celebrate the most illustrious, the brightest, and the best in youth culture, dance music, and stagecraft today." There will be several stages and an open-air cinema, with the site open for 24 hours a day throughout the week. The lineup features a healthy helping of international house and techno heavyweights, including Luciano, Tale Of Us, Dubfire, Radio Slave, Ellen Allien and David August. Romania is well-represented, with Rhadoo, Petre Inspirescu, Praslea and Livio & Roby all onboard. Other highlights include Booka Shade, M.A.N.D.Y, WhoMadeWho, Ian Pooley and Camea, as well as trance giant Armin van Buuren.
