Making Time ∞ Announces 2024 Lineup

Making Time Festival USA 2024

Making Time ∞ proudly returns to Philadelphia’s Fort Mifflin this fall, Friday, September 20 – Sunday, September 22, for its fourth and most transcendental year yet. Once again, Making Time ∞ has pulled out all the stops with a distinct curatorial bent that makes the Philly event totally unique. Topping the bill are two UK duos that have changed the game – OPTIMO (Espacio) and BICEP – who will unite for a rare back-to-back set. Additional headliners include legends FLOATING POINTS and THEO PARRISH. Friend of Making Time ∞, DANIEL AVERY, will back-to-back with the blistering Detroit electro icon DJ STINGRAY while 2MANYDJS’ anticipated set will focus on the New Beat music from their native Belgium.

This year, the full scope of Making Time ∞ comes to the fore — Los Angeles folk royalty JESSICA PRATT plays a day time live set. Hotly tipped Mexican ambient jazz artist MABE FRATTI also plays live, as will CATERINA BARBIERI, post-punk innovators MODEL/ACTRIZ, UK star JOHN GLACIER and experimentalist live acts of all stripes including PAVEL MILYAKOV, UK percussionist VALENTINA MAGALETTI and the powerful saxophonist BENDIK GISKE.

The bread and butter of Making Time ∞ is electronic music, but even here, the approach is full spectrum and gathers the best of the best from the current international dance scene, including SKEE MASK, LAUREL HALO, NIA ARCHIVES, WATA IGARASHI, PARANOID LONDON, SIMO CELL, DJRUM, LEON VYNEHALL, KIA, CCL, AURORA HALAL, SCOTT ZACHARIAS, KIERAN LAVEAUX, NOSEDRIP, PURELINK, TIME IS AWAY, DEATH IS NOT THE END, BLAZER SOUND SYSTEM, PAULA TAPE and NICK LEÓN, to name a few.

With over 25 years of experience throwing parties, the legendary Philadelphia promoter and Making Time ∞ founder Dave P. has developed familial bonds with a number of artists who serve as regulars or “residents” of sorts. AVALON EMERSON and JOHN TALABOT make their triumphant return, as do key Philly artists UNIVERSAL CAVE, JEWELSSEA, ZILLAS ON ACID, KING BRITT, RICH MEDINA (playing an all 45’s DJ set) along with crews GREAT CIRCLES and SUBSURFACE. Brooklyn community music hub The Lot Radio will return to host a livestream stage.
