Indoor festival season is well underway with the biggest names in the world gathering in warehouses and stadiums across Europe to keep the party going. Austria’s biggest indoor music festival Beatpatrol returned to St. Polten last week to celebrate a decade of Beatpatrol madness! With over 50 artists spread out across 5 stages, the overnight event showcased everything from local artists to some of the biggest names in the world. Here are the top three things I loved about this festival.
With five different stages spread out under one roof, Beatpatrol delivered an incredible event with a wide variety of artists ranging from House to Hardcore. The main stage hosted international artists including Marshmello and Nghtmre while multiple smaller stages hosted spectacular psytrance names. Prophecy also hosted their very own Hyperbeat stage to bring the harder styles back to Austria.
With indoor festivals comes indoor production and this festival absolutely blew me away. The light shows in particular definitely took me by surprise and I was highly impressed with the level of production at this event.
Not much comes to mind when you think of a small indoor event on a Thursday night but that was not the case for Beatpatrol. Gathering some of the biggest and best names in the world under one roof, this festival hosted one of the best indoor events I have attended so far. With such a diverse lineup ranging from Jax Jones to Angerfist, there was always someone I loved playing at one of the stages! My favourite set would definitely be Marshmello. Combining his new tracks with his upbeat, melodic classics, Marshmello put on a show that is rarely seen in the European festival scene and the accompanying light show was the cherry on top!
The perfect combination of different local and international artists with a premier venue and spectacular production shows why Beatpatrol is Austria’s biggest and best indoor festival. Beatpatrol will return to St. Polten in 2019 on October 25th with early bird tickets going on sale soon. Follow the festival here to keep up to date with the event.
