Activist, euphoric festival fixture and globe-trotting DJ. The Black Madonna wants you to have fun, yet at the same time she wants to change the electronic dance music world and… the world. We’re very proud to welcome her to Way Out West.


Marea Stamper is her real name. As the first female ever, she was named DJ of the year by Mixmag in 2016 and she graced the cover of the magazine wearing a giant golden crown. Last year DJ Mag wrote about her: “Finding her own teenage sanctuary from bullying in the Midwest’s ’90s rave scene, she’s become a force seeking to correct what has gone awry in electronic music since its idealistic beginnings, from addressing the huge gender inequality and issue of safety in clubland, to platforming the marginalized voices without whom house music wouldn’t exist.”


The Black Madonna will play at Red Bull Stage Dungen in Slottsskogen on Friday August 14.
