Techno's spiritual home
Awakenings Festival is the June weekender of the legendary Dutch techno brand. Taking its unrivalled lineup north of its Amsterdam base and to Spaarnwoude's beautiful open spaces, eight stages of electronic wonder explore the forefront of European and world techno.
Pitting household names against up-and-coming stars, Awakenings has become a ground of discovery, allowing techno-lovers to sample the latest directions and sounds from within the genre.
2016's lineup included Nina Kraviz, Sven Väth, KiNK and Ida Engberg, who all span tracks under immense production levels and unique staging.
Sitting just north of Amsterdam is Spaarnwoude, home to Awakenings' lush, green site in the Velsen Valley.

Amsterdam Schiphol is the closest airport to the festival site. From there, trains run into Amsterdam every 10 minutes and take just over 16 minutes to arrive at Amsterdam Centraal.
The best way get to the festival is to take the tram to Sloterdijk and then use the official shuttle buses from there.
Minimum age of entry is 18. ID is required.
