We are inching closer to October and the excitement continues to soar, as ADE is right on the corner.
As always, Amsterdam becomes the central hub for all things music. Apart from the socialising and the meetings, attendees look forward to attending the multiple showcases being held during this season. Amongst them all, Netherlands based techno festival Awakenings continues its yearly tradition to host multiple large scale showcases at the famed Gashouder and Warehouse Elementstraat. From the vast list, we hand-pick five showcases that you should definitely catch this year!
Awakenings x Charlotte De Witte pres KNTXT
Every event, statement or idea has its own circumstances that define the setting in terms of which it can be fully understood. And to fully understand K NT XT, the techno concept guided and hosted by Charlotte de Witte, you must experience it.
K NT XT has already profiled itself as a force to be reckoned with in the Techno landscape. Its objective is a clear one: to serve a quality techno experience, while staying true to a genuine underground spirit.
In 2019 K NT XT first crossed international borders with debut appearances in London and Paris, with shows at iconic Farringdon club Fabric and Paris’ T7 venue respectively. And now K NT XT is ready to cross another border, we are proud to announce: Awakenings x Charlotte de Witte presents K NT XT.
Awakenings x Afterlife
Awakenings host Tale Of Us’ Afterlife at the Gashouder for the first time at Amsterdam Dance Event 2019. The Italian duo will bring their uniquely transportive techno, together with a carefully-curated selection of their label artists. A trio of singularly gifted DJ duos in Fideles, Mathame and Mind Against feature alongside Dystopian head Rødhåd. Completing the line up are the complementary styles of Recondite and Stephan Bodzin, two masters of a live set in two different but equally affecting ways. Experience the immersive Realm Of Consciousness – a 12-hour voyage with production and location like no other.
Awakenings x Lone Romantic
Following another summer of high-profile gigs, Maceo Plex is set to bring his Lone Romantic showcase to Elementenstraat on October, 19th with an expectedly impressive line-up. The provocative night will feature myriad of exquisite underground talent from the likes of Anthony Rother, Ben UFO, Brame & Hamo, I-F, Joy Orbison, Legowelt, Robert Hood, The Hacker, Young Marco, Maceo Plex (and his electro alias Mariel Ito) all playing across two electrifying rooms.
Expect sharp electro from the likes of Anthony Rother, I-F, and The Hacker, Detroit business from the minimal mastermind Robert Hood, eclectic selections from Young Marco, Ben UFO and Joy Orbison, sizzling underground house from Irish party starters Brame & Hamo and salacious cuts by the commander-in-chief Maceo Plex and his Mariel Ito guise.
Awakenings x Joris Voorn & Friends
Awakenings ADE Specials won’t be complete without our Dutch resident Joris Voorn and his friends. During this event by day, they determine the beats in the Gashouder.
