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.
