The World’s Biggest Techno Festival Is Happening In The Netherlands

We have massive news for techno fans! How does a festival solely dedicated to techno sound? It’s called The Gathering and will be happening July 12-16, 2017 in Breepark, Breda in the Netherlands. It is being dubbed the world’s largest techno festival and expecting 100,000 visitors to the first ever Gathering.

UK promoters sub:Merged are teaming up with the Dutch organization Techno 24/7 to throw this festival, and have made very little information about the event available to the public at the moment. Although the festival is coming up rather quickly, the lineup has still yet to be announced. There is, however, a confirmed list of artists that will NOT be attending that could possibly help us predict who will actually be in attendance (see below).

sub:Merged released an official statement about the festival:

“In a world that is more divided than ever, we believe that music is the only thing that brings people together. Techno is a universal language, a sound created to unite and share a message to the world. It’s time to join forces and make a stand against all the wrongs in the world, Let’s create our own movement starting with 3 days of peace and music. A new era starts here and now! We want YOU to be part of it. WHEN THE POWER OF LOVE OVERCOMES THE LOVE OF POWER, THE WORLD WILL KNOW PEACE. 14th to 16th of July, we stand together strong and create the world’s largest techno festival to celebrate our beliefs and send a powerful message to the world”.

The Gathering will have 150 artists, playing on eight stages that’ll be hosting music all day, and two main stages going all night. The promoters state the there will be “non-stop action from Friday night until Sunday night. 4 x 12-hour festivals”. Tickets are available here and stay tuned for more information!
