Awakenings marked its 20th anniversary over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend (April 13th to 16th) with a special four-day event in Amsterdam, set within the industrial Gashouder venue – a perfect fit for the techno royalty invited to spin at the event.
Across the weekend Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, Nina Kraviz, Jeff Mills, Ricardo Villalobos, Adam Beyer, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Sven Väth, Chris Liebing, Seth Troxler and many more brought the curtain down on Awakenings’ 20th year.
This particular Awakenings event served as a precursor to their regular two-day festival in the Netherlands in June, but was programmed slightly differently with four to six DJs per night playing extended sets.
DJ Mag was on hand throughout the event to compile the biggest bangers played through the weekend. Check out 43 massive tracks from Awakenings’ 20-year anniversary at the Gashouder in Amsterdam below.
