I Love Techno Europe is an electronic music festival held each winter in the French city of Montpellier. As the name suggests, the lineup is littered with stars of the rich and diverse techno scene, with DJs and live acts performing across three rooms.
The festival dates back to the mid-nineties, and despite moving from its former home in Belgium, the same spirit, atmosphere, fanbase and dedication to hosting an unforgettable party remains unchanged after more than 20 years.
What has evolved, however, is the range of musical styles on offer. Because while techno still takes pride of place, the lineup also features elements of harder and more bass driven genres like DnB, electro, dubstep or hardcore.
The lineup for 2018 has not been announced yet. Jeff Mills, Rødhåd, Paul Kalkbrenner, Sam Paganini and more played the last edition.
The Parc des Expositions is one of France's most famous exhibition centres, and is well used to hosting major events throughout the year, including trade fairs, conferences and music events.
Montpellier city centre is just a 15 minute bus ride away from Montpellier–Méditerranée Airport. Bus number 120 will take you into the city centre.
The city is also easily accessible by rail from the rest of France, although some journeys will require a change at a major city.
From the city centre, you can reach the Parc des Expositions via Tram line 3, or a ten minute taxi ride.
