Robert Hood, Juan Atkins & More to Play Tresor's 25th Anniversary Festival
Tresor -- the legendary Berlin nightclub/record label responsible for important early techno releases, many of which came from Detroit artists -- plans to mark its 25th birthday this summer with a festival.
"The lineup for the Tresor 25 Years Festival reads like a who's who of electronic music history, a synthesis of the essence of a quarter century of activities for the club and label that initiated the techno movement in Berlin," a statement on Facebook declared. Juan Atkins, Moritz von Oswald, Robert Hood, Blake Baxter, and other early techno innovators are all slated to play the event.
In addition to these veterans, the festival also incorporates many younger names. The label's site notes that, "Tresor’s rich musical heritage extends itself through the new generations that constantly join the techno mothership, pushing the boundaries of its sound and expanding its definitions. Dasha Rush, Donato Dozzy, DJ Deep, Jonas Kopp, Claudia Anderson and Marcelus represent the future dimension of the institution."
Tresor is promising to announce additional performers/DJs before the festival; this is only the first wave. The techno celebration takes place from July 21-24. Check out the rest of the lineup below, and head here to see the day-to-day schedule and buy tickets.
