LINE UP

A-Z per stage

ANOTR

From the early career stages in an Amsterdam attic studio to being called “a breath of fresh air”,“producers to watch”, and “future superstar DJs”, the importance of commitment and patience is once again underlined by the prime example presented right before your eyes: ANOTR. Get ready to move your feet when their distinctive sound,and unmatched, on-stage energy fills the Main.

BENNY RODRIGUES

Benny Rodrigues is a Rotterdammer with his roots in Cabo Verde, who understands the art of using funk to get the dancefloor filled and the entire room to its feet. Benny plays a seamless blend of groovy, funky (deep) tech-house sounds with lots of Detroit, minimal, and acid influences, which will spark magic on our beloved Main.

DAAN GROENEVELD

Daan Groeneveld is an underground house DJ from Amsterdam. Daan has always been inspired by the raw and obscure sounds of electronic music. Those filthy hi-hats, crunchy kicks and nasty snares, preferably out of a Roland drum machine always managed to bedazzle him and are sure to rekindle your love for House and Techno when he gets behind the decks at the Main.

HENRIK SCHWARZ (LIVE)

Henrik Schwarz is a long time veteran in the German deep house scene. Djing was his first love, having built a reputation at major events in the early nineties. But a desire to breach musical and technological boundaries pushed Henrik into production and soon his live laptop sessions were born. On November 25th he takes his live sets and nine years of production experience to the Elementenstraat!

MATHIAS KADEN

Mathias’ intuition for the crowd and location, proves each time again that he lives for his profession. His music is both, distinctly ambitious and refreshing. Following the House music of the 90s, he works thoroughly to create new sound structures, which he’ll showcase during his set at the Main.

SAM PAGANINI

Sam proudly stands out as the only Italian artist to release under his own name on Plus8, Cocoon and Drumcode. Beside his studio work and production time, Sam’s sets are characterized by powerful grooves and have been described as “Sexy Groovy Dark Techno”, which speaks volumes, literally, on what to expect from his performance at the Main.

THE ADVENT (LIVE)

The Advent can be described in many ways: a musician, a pioneer, a sound designer, a steady force, one persistent m*therf*cker, a rebel, an icon, an outsider, a great live artist…  He’ll show you his interpretation of what we call Techno when he gets behind the decks at the Main.

WESLEY ROBERTS

Wesley’s music is all about feeling, emotion and giving his crowds the best feeling they ever had. He is full of energy behind the decks and always plays with a big smile on his face. Be sure to catch his grin when he fills the Main with a mix of Minimal, House & Tech-House.

FJAAK (LIVE)

FJAAK is a house/techno collective from Berlin. As lovers of the raw analogue sound, they focus on hardware based live shows and extended vinyl back-to-back sessions. Having three minds and six hands enables them to communicate intensely with their audience and are sure to create a special atmosphere at the Techno.

JP ENFANT

The musical philosophy of JP Enfant is as clear-cut as his DJ sets. The affable Amsterdam resident is on a fast track to become an influential figure in techno through his work as a DJ, producer, promoter and label manager. When he gets behind the decks at the Techno, he won’t just let you dance, he’ll make you completely lose your mind.

Juan Sanchez

A lifelong penchant for dance music and constantly on an arduous quest to rock the floor, Juan Sanchez has established himself as a sovereign tastemaker within the international electronic music community. Together with a sound that is best described as stripped-down, sophisticated techno packed with twists and turns for complete floor annihilation, it is this refined musical vision that have made him a respected name in his league.

KEVIN ARNEMANN

Kevin Arnemann has a distinct musical identity that takes its cues from many different sounds and scenes. Always dynamic, intelligent and driven by a passion for dub techno in particular, he’ll fill the Techno with his raw, yet defined sound.

MIRELLA KROES

Hailing from the north of Holland, Mirella Kroes is known to explore the trippier, mental side of Techno. She’s a close friend of the Welcome to the Future family and her audiences admire her for the mysterious, organic builds where space is the key.

SHDW & OBSCURE SHAPE

Marco Bläsi and Lui Urban, better known as SHDW & Obscure Shape, founded ‘From Another Mind’, a record label and party which brought together their favourite artists to their hometown of Stuttgart. Together, they shape and fuse old-school influences of Acid, Rave, and EBM with a dramatic Techno sound which they will bring to the Techno.

FERRO

Since the age of 17, Ferro has been developing and fast fomenting his own signature sound. It comes caked in a vintage flair, plenty of mood, and never fails to work a dancefloor. His music is organic, warm, and inviting and will illuminate our Garden like never before.

HERRA

The winner of our Welcome to the Future ‘New kid in The Forrest’ comepetition in 2014, Herra, now brings his vinyls to the Garden. Here he’ll be playing his one true love: Deep House and Techno according to the 90’s recipe.

LUUK VAN DIJK

Some might call this rising Amsterdam-based house and tech-house artist an ‘old soul’. Luuk van Dijk’s sets are merely pure, just like the club nights he hosts in his hometown of Hilversum. His sets are brimming with energy that is both old school and contemporary at the same time, and his unique sound will both tantalize and entertain you at the Garden.

MAN WITH NO SHADOW

An entire generation of underground clubbers has been inspired by these raves in old warehouses, on boats and in deserted factories. His persuasiveness behind the decks has made him a favorite with the Dutch crowds. Representing the underground with a stern smile towards the mainstream, he’ll fill the Garden with a blend of silk-mixed House and Techno.

SPACEANDTIME

Aron Friedman and Eric de Man, better known as Spaceandtime, play cosmic house, drenched in stardust, ripened through the ages. Together they will take you on a journey through soundwaves into the vast unknown.
