Europe’s Coolest Electronic Music Festivals

When you talk about Electronic Music and parties, you may think of Berlin or Ibiza. After all, among the cities that the world has an eye on, very few of them live so closely with techno music as the capital of Germany.

Politicians will also be aware of the Berlin parties’ contribution to tourism that serious investments are being made in nightclubs to make the party culture more sustainable. On the other hand, Ibiza, which is touted as a party paradise, is again a serious party tourism centre, but the same comparison is not a very correct two proposition, but it is another matter.

Everything is ok, but when it comes to the dance music festival, not only Berlin or Ibiza but also the electronic festivals all over Europe, with the participation of hundreds of thousands of people every year. I guess no continent is more interested in this music, which has increased its influence especially in the last decade and has now become the voice of Europe. European people, especially young people, who are healthy from 7 to 77, as electronic music and dancing.

If you want to plan your summer vacation this year around foreign entertainment or if you are a fan of techno/house music; Here are some of the best dance festivals in Europe that I say you have to experience;

Dekmantel Festival

Dekmantel, one of the most popular festivals of Amsterdam, is held between 31 July and 4 August this year. The festival, which is held in 6 different carefully selected locations such as Eye Filmmuseum, one of the important structures of the city, and Shelter, one of the remarkable clubs of recent years, is held with the participation of approximately 10 thousand people every year.

  • When: 31 July – 4 August
  • Where: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

DGTL Festival

DGTL Festival, which was born as a local daytime festival in Amsterdam, brings together techno music lovers as a global brand with its feet in Barcelona, ​​Sao Paulo, Madrid, Tel Aviv and Santiago, after 7 years. DGTL Amsterdam, which took place with the participation of over 17 thousand and turned Easter into a techno feast, this year, along with popular names of the dance world such as Amelié Lens, Maceo Plex, Bicep, Len Faki, Ben Klock, Disclosure, Kölsch, Anna, Rodhad, DJ Koze, Marcel Close to a hundred names such as Dettman, Henrik Schwarz, Dixon is performing.

Awakenings Festival

Another Amsterdam festival Awakenings is also the world’s largest open-air techno festival. This year, Boris Brejcha, Sam Paganini, Joseph Capriati, Tale Of Us, Jeff Mills, Joris Voorn, Amelie Lens, Ion Ludwig, Enzo Siragusa, Oracy, FJAAK. Almost all important figures of techno music such as Maceo Plex, Ben Klock, Dixon, Kölsch, Pan-Pot, Charlotte De Witte, Ricardo Villalobos go to the booth to dance more than 80,000 participants for two days.

Meanwhile, Awakenings creates excitement with the events it organizes in Gashouder, one of the most authentic party venues in the city. In our opinion, you can choose the parties it organizes during the Easter holiday rather than the festival. We even recommend that you consider a marathon such as DGTL night Awakenings, like Amsterdam taverns.

  • Where: Amsterdam, The Netherlands
