Awakenings stuns audiences at this year’s ADE

Without doubt one of the most iconic brands in the techno sphere, Awakenings has grown in popularity since its foundation. The brand has been instrumental during the uprising of Techno, and has become somewhat of a cultural hub for the scene, putting on mind-blowing parties in Amsterdam’s breathtaking Gashouder. With indoor fireworks, stunning visuals and an abundance of CO2 cannons, the Gashouder provides the perfect backdrop for attendees to have an out of this world experience. At this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), Awakenings returned to host events every single night throughout the conference, providing an impeccable lineup featuring some of the most iconic artists in the techno scene.


Some of the highlights on the Awakenings party schedule this year included a Drumcode showcase from Swedish techno heavyweight Adam Beyer, a Joris Voorn & Friends takeover which saw the Dutch mastermind invite some of the industry’s most pioneering artists to perform alongside him, and a Joseph Capriati Invites showcase, each of which sold out almost immediately. The selection of artists, alongside the sensational backdrop ensures that Awakenings remains one of the most sought-after events during the ADE conference, and 2018 will no doubt see even more spellbinding events from the brand. Following on from ADE, Awakenings are set to host a selection of parties over the New Year, with the New Years eve special having already sold out. Tickets for the rest of the New Year specials can be purchased here.
