If you’re a Techno devotee, you’ve probably marvelled already at Awakenings. The festival happens each summer at an expansive site in Spaarnwoude, 20 kilometres outside of Amsterdam, with two open-air main arenas and at least seven smaller stages. On 29 June 2013, another elite line-up will gather for a full-throttle day and night. The mind-boggling thing about the party (apart from its long line-up) is how condensed it is: 11am to 11pm, one day only. Understandably, fans have barracked for it to be spread across a whole weekend, but in 2013 it remains just 12 hours of power.
The sound of Awakenings is resolutely Techno, from the hard-edged to the deep and atmospheric. The 2013 line-up features selectors like Adam Beyer (the only DJ to have played all 13 editions of the festival), Carl Cox, Jeff Mills, Len Faki, a Ben Klock & Marcel Dettmann team-up, James Holden and Sven Vath alongside live acts Modeselektor, Miss Kittin, Max Cooper, Ben Sims, Extrawelt, Gui Boratto and Fritz Kalkbrenner.
