Marco Shuttle at Waking Life 2022
Stream Marco Shuttle's full 3-hour set from Waking Life festival.
One of Portugal’s best kept secrets, Waking Life is an intimate end-of-summer gathering like no other. After multiple editions, the festival remains somewhat elusive. When discovering its rather covert online presence, it’s clear that the festival prefers show rather than tell. Relying on the stuff of legend, and word of mouth, to encourage its die-hard fans to pilgrimage to its site within the innermost Portuguese region of Crato each summer. Made up of five artfully crafted stages surrounding a mirage-like lake at the core of the site, each area has a slight inclination towards a different musical flavours.
In the beating heart of the trees, you will stumble across Floresta. The stage was home to more experimental forms of house, techno and breakbeat — with artists such as DJ Nobu, Marco Shuttle, Djrum, OK Williams and DVS1.
Waking Life have recently uploaded a selection of sets from each of their stages. Below you can get a taste of the festival with Marco Shuttle’s expertly diverse set on the Floresta stage. Taking the audience on a wild ride, he danced between genres and tempos while perfectly matching the ethereal quality of the festival through his selections.
