Awakenings 2018: Our favourite sets from this year’s edition!

awakenings 2018

Awakenings, what can we saw about this festival that draws crowds from all over the world to the Amsterdam for 2 days, more recently during Awakenings 2018.

With some of the best techno acts from around the world pieced together to play across multiple areas, this festival is one that is a techno lovers haven. And even if you ain’t that big a fan of techno, this festival will change that for you. With the perfect mix of industrial, melodic, minimal, acid and so much more, this festival has almost all you could ask for. With massive stages and production, it goes on to prove why fans love and look forward to this festival so much. Though we unfortunately didn’t get to visit the festival this year, we were glued to the live streams on various platforms and got a piece of the action.

Here are a few sets that we loved the most. We chose not to restrict it to a specific number as there were so many sets that were absolutely wonderful and impactful. Also, all the links shared below do not have full sets as most of the sets played at the festival have not been uploaded unfortunately and most of the live stream links are no longer available. Yet, we have included them in this list as they are absolutely brilliant. So do look out for them as soon as they are uploaded. Meanwhile, bring out those black clothes Awakenings fans and get swaying to these ones!
