When two of the most recognized event producers in the world unite, the outcome’s bound to be legendary. As such, Time Warp and Awakenings have officially joined forces to present their highly anticipated collaborative festival, Connect, which boasts Jamie JonesRichie Hawtin, Solomun, Nina Kraviz, and many, many more of the best of techno.

The synthesis of the two brands who’ve set the golden standard in techno’s live event sphere will be taking place October 13 at Messe in Düsseldorf, Germany, and although Connect is set to be just a one-day festival, it’s still bringing together an incredibly eclectic mix of international acts from around the world.

The lineup is stacked from top to bottom with world-renowned DJs like Pan-Pot, Len Faki, Chris Liebing, Joseph Capriati, Kölsch, and newcomers like Amelie Lens, Monika Kruse, Charlotte de Witte, and Rødhåd.

Awakenings Festival has announced its glorious 2018 lineup, which will descend upon the grounds of Spaarnwoude on June 30 and July 1.

Over 100 artists will perform over the two days with some of techno’s heaviest acts fronting the bill. Artists like Carl Cox, Adam Beyer, Nina Kraviz, Sven Väth, and more, are some of the prime stalwarts on the bill. Awakenings will also see an equal dosage of techno’s ever-rising stalwarts like Job Jobse, Amelie Lens, Charlotte de Witte, and Dax J making their Awakening debuts.

Richie Hawtin will also be in attendance, bringing his special CLOSE concept to The Netherlands for the first time ever. Other notable acts include Marcel Dettmann, Joseph Capriati, Kölsch, Maceo Plex — who will be bringing his Mosaic concept to Awakenings for the first time ever — Ben Klock, Jamie Jones, Ricardo Villalobos, and Seth Troxler.

As expected, Awakenings Festival will be going above and beyond in their groundbreaking production. Attendees can expect top-of-the-line stage design, particularly in the open air areas of the festival.

Adam Beyer‘s Drumcode label will take a major stride come August of 2018. The highly celebrated Swedish techno label founded by Beyer 21-years prior in Stockholm has greatly matured since its early establishment — it’s the highest selling imprint within the techno genre. The label’s Drumcode Radio show extension regularly registers millions of listeners each week, a testament to Drumcode’s musical presence.

A concrete manifestation of that presence will be the inaugural Drumcode Festival, slated to touchdown in Amsterdam on August 18, 2018. Beyer will present the first edition of the Drumcode Festival in conjunction with Awakenings, where Drumcode stages have been a regular staple. Beyer boasts an extended history with Awakenings, playing more Awakenings events than any other artist, charting five Awakenings events in 2017 alone. Cumulatively, Beyer has appeared at more than 75 of the Dutch event company’s productions.

Drumcode will bring its inaugural festival to NDSM in Amsterdam North, a former shipyard located on the banks of the River IJ.
