Starting inside Amsterdam's gasworks enormodome Gashouder in 1997, Awakenings is basically Holland's answer to Time Warp. These days a full-on festival set in a lovely park over the space of two days, it's come a long way since kicking off with Dimitri, Derrick May and Billy Nasty all those years ago.
Awakenings' success has increased in line with the popularity of techno, attracting 65,000 people who enjoy eight stages host to what's basically an A-to-Z of top techno talent and its many sub-genres.
Dance music is now a multi-million-pound industry, and like with other multi-million-pound industries it needs conferences and trade fairs in order to keep the wheels turning. BMC in Brighton grew out of this tradition. With the Miami Winter Music Conference (WMC) — or Miami Music Week, as it's now just as commonly known — now more like a series of events than a conference, global attention has shifted to the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE). This is now the primary place where the international dance music industry does business.
