One massive stage with an all-star line-up

In the weekend of August 22nd and 23rd the events will take place at a new green festival site; the Ven, in Velsen-Zuid. The two massive shows on Saturday and Sunday are each hosted by Adam Beyer’s Drumcode and Boris Brejcha’s FCKNG SERIOUS.
Drumcode Festival will not be returning to the NDSM Wharf in Amsterdam in 2020. Due major urban planning developments and housing on the NDSM Wharf, we can’t host any events here anymore. Sound restrictions have been set and for us sound is the most important aspect for our events. We have been looking for a new site and found an amazing green area called the Ven, which is near Amsterdam.
With this new location we are proud to present a new two-days outdoor event concept. The festival will feature an all-star lineup on one massive stage, something Awakenings is well known for. Each event represents their own signature label sound. During this weekend Awakenings will welcome a crowd of 20.000 visitors.
Adam Beyer presents Drumcode
Saturday August 22nd sees a host of the core Drumcode acts. None other than Adam Beyer himself brings artists like Amelie Lens, ANNA, and Enrico Sangiuliano for a day filled with the authentic Drumcode sound.
FCKNG SERIOUS by Boris Brejcha
Accompanied by Ann Clue, Deniz Bul and Theydream, Boris Brejcha will present his signature sound on the Sunday. Fans already experienced his sold out all-nighter during Amsterdam Dance Event in 2019 where he hosted his label night together with Awakenings at the Warehouse Elementenstraat.
