Stages

THE WAREHOUSE

RE/FORM takes the underground experience above ground at the air-conditioned Warehouse Stage, perfectly fit for lineups worthy of big occasions like ours.

On Saturday the programming will include Pan-Pot, Pleasurekraft, Ken Ishii and CIARA B, while on Sunday Boiler Room will curate the first five hours at The Warehouse, from 5pm-10pm, proposing performances from 999999999 (Live/Hybrid Set), Randomer, Annika Wolfe and Trovarsi b2b ALX-106.

Following the Boiler Room, Paula Temple will deliver a closing two-hour performance sure to blow the roof of the warehouse for the weekend’s grand finale!

 

OPEN-AIR

We are taking techno and house to the outdoors, where we will enjoy the beats and grooves of a diverse roster of incredibly talented selectors on both Saturday and Sunday.

Los Angeles’ Making Shapes will take control of our Open-Air stage on Saturday, with a lineup delivering grooves and soul, featuring a headline performance by Detroit Techno OGs Octave One (Live), as well as Jason Kendig, _mr_jenifer b2b Sonns and Carré.

On Sunday it will be the turn of San Francisco’s Direct To Earth to steer the Open-Air ship, which for the occasion will head towards the deeper rabbit holes of techno’s soundscapes. Berghain and Ostgut Ton resident Efdemin is set to headline the stage, with Juana dropping in from the East Coast, as well as David Castellani performing a Live modular set and DTE resident Tariq opening the dances.
