The Electric Love Festival in Plainfeld, Austria is a celebration of electronic music that gathers crowds from a global scale. The event offers local and international talent alike to play the event, with the goal of granting upcoming artists more exposure to further their careers.

In addition to this, the Electric Love Festival is all about creating a strong culture of respect, telling its attendees to maintain a welcoming and inclusive environment by discouraging cultural appropriation and making tickets affordable so that people of diverse economic backgrounds are able to attend. As a part of this, the Electric Love Festival also allows artists from everywhere to submit an application for an art installation at the event, claiming that "Art Is a Significant Element in the overall atmosphere of the festival."

With this is mind, artists are welcomed to submit any project that can be viewed as an art work or one that has an interactive element. In doing so, the Electric Love Festival opens its door to artists of any background and brings a more diverse range of installations to its attendees.
