Amsterdam techno eventsThe old-school rave atmosphere will be hard to beat at Awakenings, which at Easter is actually split across four individual nights in the industrial Gashouder building at the Westergasfabriek. The parties for 2017 are as follows:
Tuesday 13 April: Awakenings 20 Years #1
This is the first in a series of four parties to celebrate this serious milestone featuring a B2B set by former residents of Amsterdam’s first club of ‘international reputation’ RoXY Dimitri and Remy, Detroit legend Derrick May B2B Kevin Saunderson, Germany techno granddaddy Sven Väth, fellow German Pan-Pot and Russian connoisseur of dark underground electro Nina Kraviz.
Friday 14 April: Awakenings 20 Years #2
More techno to celebrate two decades of Awakenings with three back to back sets: Berghain residents Ben Klock & Marcel Dettmann, Adam Beyer & Joseph Capriati and, early on, 2000 and One & Bart Skils.
Saturday 15 April: Awakenings 20 Years by Day
The first-ever daytime Awakenings at Gashouder, with a classic line-up: Jeff Mills, Ben Klock, Chris Liebing, Adam Beyer and Joris Voorn.
Saturday 15 April: Awakenings 20 Years #3
Again, a classic Awakenings line-up. Our favourite picks? Chicago’s hard hitter DJ Rush and former Underground Resistance member Jeff Mills. Also spinning are Dave Clarke, Chris Liebing and Billy Nasty.
Sunday 16 April: Awakenings 20 Years #4
The last one in the series with slightly more room for house and slower paced techno. DJs Richardo Villalobos, Seth Troxler, Luciano, Joris Voorn B2B Kölsch, Len Faki and Lauhaus.
