Year after year the Yuma Tent continues to knock it out of the park, drawing in both house and techno’s rising stars and verifiable legends. Between its slippery hardwood floors and thinned out crowd, the Yuma acts as a cool, club-like oasis amid the overstimulation that lies just outside its doors. Saturday featured a whirlwind of talent, showcasing sets from Matthew Dear, DJ Koze, Mano le Tough, Nina Kraviz, and Justin Martin, among others.
Two standout acts of the day were delivered by Irish producer and DJ, Mano le Tough, and Russian techno queen, Nina Kraviz. The former kicked things off at 7:45 and proceeded to shred the dance floor into filthy little pieces, attracting more and more people as his set went on. Nina Kraviz took over the decks shortly thereafter, infusing the tent with a mixture of acid house and techno rolled into one warehouse-ready set.
