Slovakian trance star DJ Nifra is once again partnering with Tiede Night’s for a unique new live stream from UNESCO World Heritage Site the Masada National Park.
The first stream shot from the Dead Sea last year was a huge success and the team behind the concept have now taken things up a level as they take over the ancient fortress in southern Israel’s Judean Desert. The set premiered on Nifra’s YouTube channel on Friday 7th July 2023.
Nifra is a global trance titan, globe-trotting DJ and tastemaking producer who has released on the likes of Black Hole Recordings and Coldharbour, hosts her own Rebel Radio show, and gets support from the biggest names in the game for her incredible melodies, future-facing production and energetic anthems. This year she plays the likes of Tomorrowland and Creamfields, has a big run of exciting new releases read to drop and made the #10 spot as the highest ranked female trance artist on Trancepodium.
It was during the pandemic lock downs of 2020 that Nifra found herself embracing the virtual world as an outlet to showcase her love for art and beyond. She shot performances at unique locations such as Landschaftspark in Duisburg, Toren7 in Roermond and Papierfabriek in Nijmegen among others before teaming up with Israel’s Tiede Night’s collective for her first live stream in the country at the Dead Sea and her relationship with the team and country has continued to evolve ever since.
Masada; the location for this new production, is unrivalled in its beauty and history. It is a vast plateau overlooking the Dead Sea, with a cable car and a long, winding path climbing up to the historic fortifications that were built in around 30 B.C. Among the ruins are King Herod’s Palace, which sprawls over three rock terraces, and a Roman-style bathhouse with mosaic floors. The Masada Museum has archaeological exhibits and recreations of historical scenes and it is sure to form a breathtaking setting for this live stream.
Tiede Night’s establishes connections in the global music industry between top nightlife figures and club owners to work on creative projects like no other, and live streams are a crucial part of that. They say, “once again we give fans and viewers a high-quality performance in a stunning setting. We have overcome plenty of challenges to make this happen but that is sure to make it all the more enjoyable and exciting.”
Nifra adds, “after working with Tiede Nights on production of the live set from the Dead Sea last year, I knew I wanted to go back and record something together this year as well. I’ve seen some pictures and footage of Masada and as crazy as this idea was, I got in touch with Lidor from Tiede Night’s. We are talking about a very special location that I can’t even believe we got permission to shoot. After the recording it took me some time to realise what we actually did here and the result is breathtaking. I’m very excited about once again pushing the boundaries with an incredible team of people that worked on this project.”
This is a live stream not to be missed and one that invites you deep into the musical world of Nifra in a stunning setting.
