Awakenings makes a big splash for its 25th Anniversary, announcing no less than nine events during this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event. This year the iconic Gashouder in Amsterdam will once again be the backdrop for six ADE Awakenings events, and after a successful series of shows in 2021, the Ziggo Dome also joins the program for another three shows, of which the Friday event will be announced soon. With headliners like Amelie Lens, Joris Voorn, Carl Cox, Charlotte de Witte, and many more of the biggest names in the scene, Awakenings promises to be the highlight of an already unprecedented Amsterdam Dance Event.
Awakenings’ annual programming for ADE is known for impressive techno events, featuring the biggest names in the scene at iconic venues. Awakenings’ ADE Opening Night will take place on October 19 at Amsterdam’s Gashouder, the techno temple where it all began for Awakenings. The event will kick off a wild week of shows with Hector Oaks, Nina Kraviz and Cera Khin, as well as Drumcode Records boss Adam Beyer, ANNA, Pan-Pot, Richie Hawtin, Amoral, Kobosil, Joseph Capriati, Dave Clarke, and Speedy J. Besides the standout night programming, daytime events will be hosted on October 22 and 23 by none other than Spectrum’s labelboss Joris Voorn and Awakenings resident Amelie Lens, bringing names like Ben Klock b2b Marcel Dettmann, ONYVAA, 999999999, and Helena Hauff to complete the 2022 Gashouder line-up.
But that’s not all, as Awakenings will also be taking to Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome for ADE’s biggest techno event. On Saturday, October 22, scene pioneer and Awesome Soundwaves co-owner Carl Cox will take over the Ziggo Dome during the day for ‘Carl Cox Invites’, where Reinier Zonneveld and KiNK, among others, will treat fans with astounding live performances. In the evening, techno queen Charlotte de Witte will take over the decks, bringing raw sound to the Ziggo Dome with her cohort of KNTXT label artists, including FJAAK, I Hate Models, and Indira Paganotto.
After a traditional Easter weekend filled with events, this year in both Spaarnwoude and the Gashouder, as well as a successful first edition of Awakenings Summer Festival, with three days of camping in Hilvarenbeek, the organisation is now preparing for an ADE like they have never done before. Tickets for all shows will be available starting today at 7pm CEST via www.awakenings.nl.
