It’s a planned 19 hours of nonstop music from some of the biggest and brightest names digging underground sounds, with headline sets from longtime favorites Adam Beyer, Jamie Jonesand Richie Hawtin, among others.
“Time Warp was emotional,” Hawtin is quoted in a press release of last year’s 25-year celebration. “This moment was cinematic. Time Warp represents a family. This celebration of life means so much. I will remember this moment for the rest of my life.”
In addition to Villalobos, a minimal techno titan, the lineup will also include sets by foundational French house and techno funk fiend Laurent Garnier, and German techno revoutionairy Sven Vath.
Scene stalwarts Seth Troxler, Solomun, Maceo Plex, Amelie Lens, Charlotte de Witte, DJ Koze, The Black Madonna, Kink and more round out the seriously stacked bill.
It will take place at Maimarkthalle in Mannheim Saturday, April 4.
