German festival Time Warp – the techno haven in Mannheim – enters a new decade with a quite golden line up, though there are quite few women on there. Regulars such as Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin and Ricardo Villalobos team up with Carl Cox, Magda, Laurent Garnier and Tale of us to continue the legacy into their 21st year. Seth Troxler will give a b2b set with the Martinez Brothers and Dubfire will perform his live Hybrid show.
Time Warp is not just techno and spotlights put in a blender: it is a movement. Apparently the early bird tickets sold out in just about three hours, which says something about the eagerness of the fans. Some of the things that participants never will forget are rebirth of Richie Hawtins ”Plastikman” in 2010, the collective sit-down during Reboots ”Caminando” and when the catchphrase ”Gude Laune, Aldaaa!” was born.
The festival is a living organism, as it spread its branches to New York and Buenos Aires last year, as well as celebrating techno godfather Sven Väths birthday with a special event in Mannheim in October. The Mannheim Edition of the festival is the mothership and during Easter Sunday the Time Warp Community and electro enthusiasts will pilgrim to Maimarkthalle for the 19-hour-straigt techno feast. Check out the full line-up, last-years sets and the official aftermovie below!
