Dutch techno's biggest event
Awakenings Festival is the highlight of the Dutch techno music calendar. Away from their Amsterdam base, the Awakenings team have been bringing the very finest in world techno to Spaarnwoude's beautiful, lush meadows and forest, producing two days and eight stages of electronic mayhem.
Dependably huge lineups put old-school pioneers alongside more recently risen stars, with the likes of Len Faki, Richie Hatwin and Sven Väth joined by Tale of Us, Eats Everything and loads more.
Awakenings' unparalleled reputation for one-of-a-kind staging and spectacular effects comes with them to Spaarnwoude every year. As Awakenings Festival closes in on 20 years, it remains one of the most important electronic events in Europe.
