Who Not To Miss

Sven Väth – April 13
The German mastermind that is Papa Sven has been a long-time friend of and performer at Awakenings. Thanks to his signature vinyl-only performances, upbeat techno tracks and funky synths, he’s sure to keep the crowd dancing throughout his entire set.

Ben Klock b2b Marcel Dettmann – April 14
These two gentlemen have been at the top of techno lists around the world and rightfully so. Their dynamic b2b sets ooze characteristic Berghain pounding techno with thrilling twists and turns throughout, making them our standout back-to-back choice for Awakenings’ 20 Year Anniversary celebration.

Jeff Mills – April 15 (Day) 
A space wizard with endless talents, Jeff Mills is one of the most well-seasoned techno producers and DJs to roam this earth. His sets are known to incorporate cosmic synths and spacial sounds, providing timeless and out-of-this-world techno inspired emotions.

Dave Clarke – April 15 (Night)
Another Awakenings and veteran techno producer, Dave Clarke will bring the heat with heavy drums and a signature old school sound that blends techno and electro with effortless precision. The Amsterdam-based UK producer debuted with his first release in 1990 and yet remains at the forefront of today’s underground with good reason: his penchant for quality music above all else.

Ricardo Villalobos – April 16
Unnecessarily talented, Ricardo Villalobos is known to be the king of eclectic mixes, from spiraling sounds with deep bass to spirit-liberating techno. As an Awakenings veteran and one of the most sought-after talents in the world, there is no doubt that he will not disappoint for the festival’s 20th Anniversary.

Wednesday nights at Amnesia Ibiza have been Hyte territory since last summer, when the techno-centered residency first landed on the island with bang. While in 2015 the residency was spearheaded by Loco Dice and Maceo Plex, this year the latter has left and launched his own debut Mosaic residency at Pacha Ibiza. Loco Dice will continue to head Hyte with appearances at all except three nights throughout the entire summer.

The 16-week party series will begin on June 1st with a pre-opening party before officially starting on June 29th and ending on October 5th. The roster of talent is deep, with a total of 42 artists set to perform. Others regularly playing the Wednesday night party include Chris Liebing (12 nights), Pan-Pot (11 nights) and Enzo Siragusa who is bringing his Fuse imprint to the Club room on four nights throughout the residency.

Some of the most illustrious guests visiting the club include Robert Hood who will play twice as Floorplan; Henrik Schwarz who is playing three times solo and once as one-half of Schwarzmann in September ; Gregor Tresher on July 6th; Premiesku with two separate dates; and finally the likes of Len Faki, Maya Jane Coles, Caribou and DJ Harvey all playing once.

This summer, Hyte is promoting a “Yes To All” mentality of inclusion, hoping to bring together a mix of club-goers who enjoy big room techno, tech house and house alike. They will also be hosting 5 after-hours event at Cova Santa, set for June 1st, July 27th, August 10th, August 17th and September 28th. Lineups are still TBA but will likely feature artists that played Amnesia the night before. You can find the full Hyte roster below or through RA’s promoter page.
