It’s been almost a week since Anjunadeep Open Air: Austin 2019 and I am still in awe of how incredible the day was. I thought the 2018 show couldn’t be topped but boy was I wrong. The weather was amazing, the lineup was top notch and the crowd, well we all know how the Anjunafam parties!
I had a full weekend of Anjuna Adventures, three of my best buddies and I took off Thursday for the Above & Beyond at Red Rocks show and had a freakin blast! We flew back on Saturday morning because there was no way we could miss Open Air. After a quick nap, we finally made our way to the show. Sadly, we missed Marsh’s set but we heard it was killer!
We arrived at the venue right in the middle of Ben Böhmer‘s set and could hear the distant melodies of his tracks in the distance and made a mad dash to the stage. He is definitely one of my new Anjunadeep favorites. His debut album “Breathing” will be out on Anjunadeep in November and I can not wait to check it out.
The crowd was filling up as Öona Dahl made her way to the decks. This was my first time to see her perform and she blew me away. I wasn’t the only one who was super impressed. She made a ton of new fans because all I heard in the crowd was how excellent she was.
The sun had already set by the time 16BL made his way to the stage. He had the crowd in a frenzy, and everyone was having a blast. When he played “Deep in my Soul”, you could feel the euphoria in the air. This Anjunadeep anthem had the whole place grooving and on their feet.
Luttrell was up next and his sets are always outstanding. He kept the energy high and played several favorites “What you Are”, “Still Dreaming”, and “Out of Me”. If you haven’t checked out his “Into the Clouds” album which was released earlier this year, it is a must!
Yotto was making his second appearance at Open Air in Austin and his set was better than last year if you can believe it. They couldn’t have picked a better person to close out the night. His sets are dramatic, deep and spellbinding.
RealMusic Events did an outstanding job hosting this event. Getting into the Carson Creek Ranch was a breeze, there were plenty of port-a-potties and bars with little to no lines throughout the night. The Texas bi-polar weather actually cooperated which gave us a gorgeous afternoon and evening. We couldn’t have asked for a better day for this festival. If you couldn’t make it this year hopefully, we will see a 2020 edition of Anjunadeep Open Air: Austin!
