Awakenings finally came back and showed why their festival is one of the biggest and most important ones in the Netherlands! 

Continuing their legacy, Awakenings Easter Festival gave the best kick-start to the current festival season. After waiting for two years due to the pandemic, they returned offering the highest quality music for those lovers of techno! 

While celebrating its 25th anniversary the festival featured worldwide known DJ’s such as Nina Kraviz, Amelie Lens, Reinier Zonneveld, Sam Paganini, Enrico Sangiuliano, Sven Väth, and many more. In total, they provided the visitors with over 100 artists and showcased pioneers as well as upcoming talents from the techno scene. 

The Awakenings Easter Festival marathon had eight different stages in the outdoor area of Spaarnwoude Houtrak, just outside of Amsterdam, with more than 40.000 visitors each day. Apart from the amazing music experience, they had a well-thought plastic recycling system, plenty of all-vegetarian food options, many relaxing outdoor spaces by the lake as well, and fun festival attractions such as a swing ride. In addition to the festival grounds, Awakenings hosted four iconic Gashouder shows at night – including the two festival days this makes six shows in a total of four days!

For the ones that missed this Iconic Easter festival, Awakenings will happen again this summer. For the first time lasting 3 days including a campsite, this edition will take place from the 29th to 31st of July at Hilvarenbeek while providing day, weekend, and camping tickets.

So now, check out the immaculate vibes through the Awakenings Easter Marathon pictures and already get hyped for the next round in Summer!
