Press briefing

Awakenings Summer Festival


This year, we celebrate our 25th Birthday, and ofcourse, we go all out.

We are hosting 2 major festivals. The first celebration was during Easter from 14 - 17 April, with 4 nights at the Gashouder and 2 days of Awakenings Easter Festival at our well-known festival grounds in Spaarnwoude.

This weekend is our second celebration!

Awakenings Summer Festival will take place from the 29th until the 31st of July in Hilvarenbeek. With this brand new location, a third day added to the program and a revamp of the entire festival set up — including a campsite — visitors will be treated to something unlike they’ve ever seen before from us.

With the new expansion, Awakenings also becomes the first multi-day techno festival in the Netherlands to host a campsite, filling a gap that has existed in many techno enthusiasts' summers for a long time.


We would like to welcome you at Awakenings Summer Festival!

Here you’ll find all the important information to prepare yourself. Please make sure to read this briefly for a smooth time.
