Smirnoff Open sessions

Our new intimate S-stage is a collaboration between Awakenings and Smirnoff.

Smirnoff and nightlife culture go way back. As a brand for everyone, Smirnoff wants to make that culture a more fun, inclusive and open place - after all, we’re all the same on the dancefloor. This year’s concept, Smirnoff OPEN SESSIONS, will be the place at Awakenings where Smirnoff’s definition of “We’re Open” hits another level. Smirnoff is not only open in its approachable structure, it’s literally open by creating a stage for raw DJ talent who deserves a chance to express themselves.

Smirnoff believes in equality and inclusivity, so expect a mixed line-up of the Smirnoff OPEN SESSIONS filled with raw DJ talents.

Two talents of area s


Reiss has been a pivotal figure of the Amsterdam house and techno underground for quite some time. His extensive record collection, combined with a refined sense of (club)atmosphere, enables him to create cohesion and unison on the dance floor. His sound can be described as a delicate flow of rhythms and soundscapes spiced up with occasional and surprising idiosyncrasies.

Grooving without a doubt! Whether it's house music from Chicago and Detroit, acid, breakbeat or electro - TITIA always picks her records full of funk. Her sets are a well-tuned balanced blend between old, underground records and new releases, that have that raunchy, authentic sound. Her raw and grimy vibe brought her to TrouwAmsterdam, to play at the infamous Is Burning party, as well as Shelter, de School, BAR Rotterdam, Radion, ZeeZout, Cartel, La Java in Paris and she has also played many festivals in the NL and Belgium.
