For techno lovers the Time Warp events are a must and the news that they will be adding a third location for 2012 is very welcome. Italy, Holland and now Mannheim in Germany will be having a serious injection of Techno...
The 31st of March is like a call to arms for global techno fans. For the 17th year running, the clock will be ticking in time to fat bass drums and hissing hi-hats - a truly unique experience… a breathtaking combination of music, light and emotions. The spirit of Time Warp has changed very little since it’s beginning in the mid-nineties. A calendar focal point for all in the electronic music scene, and a pivotal platform for new sounds and trends.
Time Warp 2012 will host the very best in electronic music with DJ heavyweights such as Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin and Carl Cox, coupled with new discoveries such as the Visionquest crew who are based around Berliner Seth Troxler… Resident Advisors Best DJ Jamie Jones will also make his Time Warp debut. Nick Curly will not only perform tracks from his debut album "Between the Lines", he will also be performing back2back with Mathias Kaden – an appearance that is hotly anticipated! Kevin Saunderson and John Digweed, two pioneers of the electronic dance music scene, will join a whole host of DJ talent, which also includes AKA AKA feat. Thalstroem, Davide Squillace, Pan-Pot, Guti, Hobo and many more during Time Warps marathon event.
Time Warp takes an innovative stance in the field of production and stage technology, with an emphasis on cutting edge technologies. Besides elaborate light shows, the focus is primarily on the use of 3D technology. The audience has previously been impressed by the stunning 3D mapping at Time Warp Holland. In Mannheim, the production team will offer a completely new experience in this department. The Time Warp team has already been successful while on the lookout for talented and innovative new visual artists, and is now working on the concept for the six floors.
Visitors can look forward to a unique audiovisual experience with more than 40 acts, extraordinary lighting and stage concepts – packed into 19 hours non-stop – Time Warp in 2012 will again provide an intense party experience that is second to none.
