Italy has a long history of techno. It even has its own Motor City, Turin, and has produced some of the world’s biggest and best techno DJs who now play all over the world to legions of adoring fans.

Now the country also boasts Sumdayz, a top class event that debuted in Rome last year and is back again in 2023 from September 22nd – 24th.

The multi-stage festival provides immersive audio and visual experiences across the entire weekend and will showcase many entertainment and artistic experiences including a unique digital art exhibition from different curatorial productions and creative fields.

This year taking place at Ippodromo Capannelle, it offers an immersive mix of unique world class headliners and here we pick out five sets of the best not to miss…

Craig Richards B2B Francesco Del Garda

This one will see the legendary fabric resident Craig Richards pair off with deep digging Italian Francesco Del Garda for a mix of underground sounds like no other. Expect slick breaks, pumping tech, industrial electronic funk and much more.

DJ Masda B2B Binh

This one is for the real heads – a superb back to back between two of the most cultured selectors around in the game today. They each have their own styles and are sure to find plenty of common ground in between with electro, techno and spaced out breakbeats sure to feature.

Dungeon Meat

Expect nothing but hard edged and sweaty house from the Leeds pair that is Dungeon Meat. They deal in only the most solid house and compelling grooves and know how to lock them in so that the floor never has a chance to breathe.

Sonja Moonear

One of the most in demand and reliable DJs on the circuit, Sonja Moonear can do it all from big time bangers to more sleek and stripped back sounds. She places with style and control and will no doubt have some special tricks up her sleeve, too.


This artist has emerged with his own fresh take on future house. It is spaced out and cosmic, with plenty of lush neon colours, well designed rhythms and lucid sound designs that all make the grooves extra special. Prepare to dance non stop when he steps up.
