THE Orb, Roger Eno, Mixmaster Morris, The Egg, Coldcut’s Matt Black and Jah Wobble are among the artists playing the first-ever ambient arts festival at legendary music producer Youth’s Granada studio.

The Puretone Resonate Festival at the Space Mountain studio in the Sierra Nevada foothills will feature four stages of tripped-out vibes, DJs, guest speakers, cinema pop-up spa and fusion cuisine.

Curator Youth has sold over 20 million records during a career working with Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Kate Bush, U2, Siouxsie & The Banshees and many more.

His boutique festival will take place in Space Mountain’s 60-acre olive grove in Albunuelas from September 16-18.

Youth said: “I want to create a space that can express the collective need for beautiful music, an experimental cultural exchange celebrating diversity from all the arts and cultures.

“The festival will be held during a full moon, a highly auspicious time, so there will be a reconnection to nature and the mystery of music.

“I want to uphold the highest artistic criteria for the artists, from the incredible, high tech soundsystem to the great lineup of performers.”

Other artists performing include Roger Eno, Youth himself, Gaudi, Tripswitch and Tristan.

The former Orb and Killing Joke member’s festival will have a rootsy ethos based on pagan and shamanistic values.

A teepee village is available for glamping, with healing arts and gong baths on site.
