Taking place at a spectacular location on the shores of the Black Sea in Constanta, Romania’s NEVERSEA is the country’s biggest beach festival and is one of the most exciting events in the European music calendar. This week sees them announce the first artists for their 2019 line-up, and it’s been well worth the wait.
The live line-up begins with American rapper G-Eazy, performer of hit singles Him & I (with Halsey), Me, Myself & I and No Limit, and collaborator with Dillon Francis, Kehlani and Bebe Rexha among others. It’s his first time performing in Romania, so you can be assured a high-octane set. British pop queen Jessie J also performs, bringing her amazing stage presence and huge catalogue of hits with her that includes Bang Bang, Price Tag and Flashlight.
Afrojack, Steve Aoki and Lost Frequencies all loved playing previous editions of NEVERSEA so much that they agreed to come back to play sets on the mainstage, while on the other stages there’s techno and house from Jamie Jones and Tale Of Us and all manner of bass pressure from Rudimental (DJ set), Sub Focus & ID (DJ Set), Andy C, Chinese Man, Flux Pavillion and Wilkinson & MC Ad-Apt (DJ set).
Many more artists to be announced soon.
Full festival 4-day passes are now available for €118,95 via Festicket.

NEVERSEA 2019 Date: 4 – 7 July 2019 Location: Constanta, Romania Tickets: via NEVERSEA
Additionally Axwell^Ingrosso, Hardwell, Jonas Blue, Kungs, Steve Angello, The Script, John Newman and Scooter will be heading to the Neversea this summer.
This year, sunrise on the Black Sea will be accompanied by music from some of the globe’s biggest electronic artists as well as major acts from the pop scene. One of the most anticipated moments is Armin van Buuren’s grand return to the festival’s main stage alongside a plethora of A-list musicians including Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Steve Aoki, Galantis, Yellow Claw and Hardwell. Armin van Buuren has built up a reputation for playing extended sets far past the scheduled closing time in the Romanian festival scene, as per his 5,5 hour set from last year.
With many returning faces on this year’s line-up, it seems apparent that artists are eager to head back to Romania for Neversea, the biggest festival on the Black Sea or the equally impressive Untold Festival. For a large part of the line-up, either one of the two affiliated festivals has become a mainstay in their summer schedule.
While the main stage plays host to commercial electronic dance artists and liveperformers alike, there’s plenty on offer for visitors who prefer to stray off the beaten path. Local Romanian legends Raresh, Priku and Praslea will play alongside internationally acclaimed techno and house acts by way of Jamie Jones, Nina Kraviz, Âme, Black Coffee and Eats Everything. Even drum and bass and dubstep are heavily represented in the form of the Ark stage, with slated performances by Camo & Crooked, DJ Premiere, Dope DOD, Chase & Status, Modestep, Dub FX and many more.
You can now purchase special 4-day passes for 110 euro + taxes from www.neversea.com.
