Awakenings Festival is returning in two weeks' time for its new summer event at Hilvarenbeek, situated in the south of The Netherlands
Stretching between July 29 and July 31, it is the first time that the festival will offer three days of music and a campsite for revellers to fully immerse themselves amongst the techno weekender.
It'll mark Awakenings as the first techno festival in the Netherlands to offer an event of its kind and scale, celebrating its 25th anniversary with a bang.

Those playing the festival include heavyweights such as Robert Hood and Jeff Mills, with a plethora of other names joining them including Ellen Allien, Charlotte de Witte, Amelie Lens and Sama' Abdulhadi. You can view the extensive line-up which will span across nine indoor and outdoor stages here.
For those who have opted to camp, there is a choice of two campsites - Grand Camping and Relax Resort - which offers the Night Village, where DJs will be playing until 5am including Joris Voorn, François X and Farrago.
Alongside this, there will be a variety of other attractions for campers to explore: wellness and beauty areas with passages and hot tubs, pop-up parties, a 24/7 movie theatre, sports and art programmes, workshops and a vintage clothing market.

"As a festival organisation, we are always on the move and always ask ourselves how something can be better or more beautiful," explains founder Rocco Veenboer. "Awakenings Festival once started as a one day festival and was expanded to two days in 2014. However, we felt that there was still much more in it.
"The festival had always sold out within 24 hours in recent years and our supporters indicated that they really missed a full weekender focused on techno in the festival landscape. The fact that we are able to realise this new chapter of Awakenings in Hilvarenbeek is a dream come true.”
Sustainability is a key component in the festival's gameplan, with organisers implementing a cup deposit recycling system, 100% vegetarian menu, a smart energy plan and providing all attendees with a free pocket ashtray to dispose of cigarettes and avoid littering.
Alongside this, the event has established a soundsystem where decibels can be lowered without impacting the crowd's experience, aiding what it refers to as the "fight against hearing damage".
