The first ever festival hosted by Berlin institution Tresor goes down over four colossal days, 21.–24 July.
With a who’s who of electronic music history, 25 Years Tresor Festival is a synthesis of the essence of a quarter century of activities for the club and label that initiated Berlin’s Techno movement.
Day 1 sees live performances of Juan Atkins & Moritz von Oswald as Borderland, DJ Pete & Sleeparchive as TR-101, Drexciya’s own Mr. Gerald Donald as Arpanet, Chain Reaction stalwart Vainqueur and long-time Tresor affiliate Mike Dehnert, as well as Thomas Fehlmann and Gudrun Gut, Madrid’s Psyk and ambient legend TV Victor in the Kraftwerk Hall. DJ Stingray and Helena Hauff will also perform in OHM room.
Day 2 comes with curation by way of Downwards Records founder Regis, bringing together Surgeon and Berlin staples Automat, a rare O/V/R show uniting James Ruskin and Regis himself, as well as Italian mastermind Donato Dozzy and Fullpanda head-honcho Dasha Rush on the Kraftwerk stage. Even more performances come by way of DJ Hell, Sterac, Jonas Kopp, J.C. and Mario Berger.
Day 3 will feature Detroit’s finest, Daniel Bell as DBX, Robert Hood, and Blake Baxter. The entire day is techno ground by definition, with the likes of Oscar Mulero, Pacou, Bill Youngman, Claudia Anderson, Zadig, Fumiya Tanaka, Objekt, Acronym, Patrice Scott, and more set to play. The night’s program also extends into the Festival’s closing event with Ellen Allien and DJ Tanith reviving their legendary early-day Club The Rest Sunday evening after hour party.
