Gearing up for its 6th edition, Voltage Festival returns Saturday, August 8th and Sunday, August 9th this summer. They’ve announced an absolutely massive 2020 lineup featuring some of the greatest known and unknown techno artists. After a highly successful 2019 run, the festival returns bigger and better than ever.
Techno lovers from around the world will fall in love with the hard and heavy sounds coming out of the Transfo in Zwevegem. This abandoned Belgium power plant is set to host a slew of killer acts like 999999999, Anetha, British Murder Boys, Karenn, and Len Faki.
In recent years, Voltage Festival has grown into a profound techno powerhouse on both national and international levels. About a quarter of last year’s attendees came from abroad – countries like the UK, France, South Korea, New Zealand, Australia, and the USA.
This year offers a relentlessly rough roster from Berghain resident, Len Faki, to exciting B2Bs like VTSS and Randomer as Body Sushi. If you enjoy a blend of EBM, trance, electro, and ’90s techno, then Anetha is your girl. Don’t miss the Voltage debut of Viper Diva – a new project between Shlømo and fellow Frenchman, Hadone.
Karenn is the trippy, glitchy live duo of Blawan and Pariah. 999999999 continues to obliterate dance floors with their mind-bending acid techno. And for the first time in 11 years, you can catch Regis and Surgeon playing together in Belgium as British Murder Boys.
Schacke is fast-rising with his experimental brand of Danish techno – not one to be missed if you know what’s good for you. Meanwhile DJ Stingray holds down the North American representation. Another Berghain regular, Efdemin‘s one of the leading pioneers of modern techno; always worth seeing. Representing Belgium among others is Peter Van Hoesen, whose storytelling productions constantly think outside the box. From top to bottom, this whole lineup bangs. Your summer would be remiss without attending this seriously sick festival.
The music will be spread across three different stages during this fantastic and furious 2-day affair – the Anode, the Turbine, and the Rotor. Also, six organizations will have the opportunity to host a stage featuring their own curated schedule of DJs.
