About Us

SUNANDBASS is the original drumandbass holiday. Since 2003, SUNANDBASS has attracted drumandbass lovers from worldwide for a whole week of music holidays. Our events are staged in different locations throughout the Sardinian village of San Teodoro and set to the backdrop of Italian soul food, crystal clear Sardinian waters and white sand beaches. As a festival run by music lovers, SUNANDBASS aims to bring a vibrant and diverse array of international talent to the line-up each year.

You can expect to hear the scene’s most prominent DJs line up alongside the genre’s freshest, groundbreaking talent. Immersed in the Italian dolce vita for a week while listening to cutting edge performances of music and new productions together, SUNANDBASS has contributed significantly to the scene’s vibrancy and made Sardinia the most popular cultural destination in the world of drumandbass.

This music is a perfect fit because it is so versatile. Within its structure, drumandbass holds so many possibilities to bridge energies and feelings between creators, performers and the audience, and it evolves. Remaining open to its full range of delicacy and roughness, beauty and ugliness, wild energy and calmness, always ready to transform our music into a more beautiful and yet more genuine reflection of ourselves as a community.

Our last SUNANDBASS was in 2019, and then the COVID-19 crisis put a sudden hold on its sizzling success story. So we’re rebuilding our beloved holiday in 2022.

 

Podcast & Label

We are working hard in the background on our monthly podcast and label: SUNANDBASS Recordings.

The label and podcast provide a platform for emerging and established artists to share tracks that showcase their relationship with our festival. Our podcast will give you a fresh mix from our dearest artists on the first week of every month. For now, this is our way of gathering and reconnecting with our community of drumandbass lovers. The label, however, is more behind-the-scenes work, and we aim to release new music a few times a year. The label’s ethos is to promote music with a personal touch to represent the spirit of the SUNANDBASS.

Set up in 2011, we have released compilation albums, EPs, singles, albums, and many more records and merch to go along with it with some of the biggest names in drumandbass.

 

Diversity & Environment

Right from the start, we strived for an environmentally friendly event, and with each edition, we aim to reduce our footprint. To date, we have been working towards eliminating single-use plastics and ensuring we leave San Teodoro as we found it- rubbish free! 

We created SUNANDBASS to be a safe space for everyone by promoting diversity, equality and simply well-being. We are proud to announce the artists of EQ50, which aims to improve gender equality and diversity in the drumandbass community. Working toward a more inclusive event and protecting the environment has always been, and still is, an arduous journey. But swimming against the stream was never meant to be easy, and every little win counts. Alas, we’re unmanageably committed to fighting for this vision!
