Germany’s wicked Warp Festival
If you love techno you can’t afford to miss the Warp Festival. Taking place on Saturday 5th April at the Maimarkthalle venue in Mannheim, Germany, Warp aims to celebrate the very best across the techno spectrum. For 14 years the festival has spearheaded musical innovation, and this year looks to be no exception. The line up reads like a veritable A-Z of electronic dance, with appearances from Carl Cox, Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier (spinning an eight hour set), Ricardo Villalobos, Loco Dice and Luciano all present and correct.
Those slavering for a bit of the old electro filth needn’t fear either – Digitalism, Boys Noize are gonna put those bassbins through their paces. After an exceptionally successful 2007, Warp is set to be ever better this April. Don’t miss it! Tickets are priced at €45 plus booking fee in advance, and €55 on the night, and can be purchased from www.time-warp.de or www.ticketweb.co.uk.
