About Awakenings

Awakenings has been organizing techno events for more than 22 years. The famous Gashouder was the first place a legendary Awakenings techno night was held in 1997. Since then, the massive productions became known as the best there is, worldwide. With over 190.000 visitors a year, Awakenings has shown to bring the ultimate techno experience, every time, like no one else can.


Awakenings Festival is the largest outdoor techno festival in the world. With 80.000 visitors in a weekend Awakenings Festival is the highlight of Europe’s techno music calendar. During the 2-day festival, there are more than 100 techno DJ’s playing their best sounds for one of the most dedicated crowds.


Since 1997, the Gashouder in Amsterdam is the homebase of our indoor events. We return with a series of massive productions each Easter, ADE (October) and around New Years Eve.
