The Basics

30 April - 1 May 2014
Dortmund, Germany

Mayday spent decades defining the electronic dance scene by taking the top techno, trance, hard dance and house stars across Europe to its spin-off events in Hungary and Russia. 

Now it’s back in its home country, organisers are ready to wow some 25,000 ravers with a monstrous night of big national and international name DJs, cutting-edge producers and beats until way past dawn.

With an 8am curfew, there will be no let up at the German edition of the festival as lasers, giant L.E.D. screens and ear-pounding sound systems fill Dortmund's Westfalenhallen.

There will be five five stages at the festival:

ARENA - "Looks Like Heaven" - This is the main stage and seen as the centre of the festival, an area you can't leave the event without experiencing.

EMPIRE - "Feels Like Techno" - If you are looking for some thicker and deeper bass this room is for you.

FACTORY - "Tastes Like Hell" - This is the haven of hardcore, hardtekk and industrial sounds.

MIXERY-CASINO - "Sounds Like Fun" - if the good vibes of house is what you are seeking, this is where to go.

TWENTY DOME - "Smells Like Rave" - Bringing together nostalgia with fresh experiences, this is where the ravers head to.
