All over the world, the name Awakenings is synonymous with uncompromising class and quality in house and techno. For 20 years, the Dutch festival and party series has defined sounds, launched careers, and been a pillar of the underground dance music community. This Labor Day Weekend (September 1-3), Awakenings-fresh off another wildly successful Awakenings Festival in the Netherlands-makes a monumental return to New York City for Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro with an exquisitely curated selection of artists who've all left their own mark on dance music over the years.
“We are really honored to have Awakenings back at Electric Zoo. This year's line-up is so special that we've decided to give techno fans a bigger and better stage in a new location. The amazing energy of Awakenings will surely make The 6th Boro even more special!”
says Michael Julian, Chief Marketing Officer of Made Event.
“We are happy to be back in the USA with 3 days of the Awakenings stage at Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro! We have a legendary line-up, bigger and better stage and special production. Now we can't wait for the techno tourists from all over the world to come and party with us in one of my favorite places on Earth – New York City! “
adds Rocco Veenboer, Founder of Awakenings.
