Awakenings 2022 Celebrates 25 Years, Adds an Extra Date

The internationally renowned techno brand Awakenings is celebrating its anniversary of 25 years. The completely revamped festival will have a new location in the town of Hilvarenbeek just north of Eindhoven. This will be Awakenings’ first multi-day techno festival in the Netherlands to host a campsite. The festival will take place this summer on 29 – 31 July. Visitors will be treated to something unlike they’ve ever seen before.

Founder of Awakenings, Rocco Veenboer, has long had a dream of organizing his very own three-day festival with campsites. 

“From a business standpoint, I always want to keep moving, never stagnating. Nothing is ever truly finished and there’s always room for improvement. Our team continuously looks at ways to make things more beautiful and impactful.

Awakenings Festival started as a single-day event and expanded to two days in 2014. But, we felt like there was still room for more. Especially because the community had so much to say about missing a multiple-day techno event here in the Netherlands. With this renewed concept, we’re extremely happy to make that dream come to life.”

The new concept will expand to nine stages both open-air and inside tents. The extra day of Awakenings will have more space for fun and a bigger lineup. There will be an additional schedule for the campsite with an experience unlike any other. The festival will have a new sound production, cutting-edge speakers, and innovative visuals. The Netherlands has always been a clean and energy-efficient country. In 2022 the festival will begin using biofuels obtained from horticulture to help power the generators and drastically cut down on their CO2 emissions.
