Techno? Amsterdam says tech-yes, and there's a whole lot of it coming to the international dance city in June for this year's two-day Awakenings Festival. It's a lineup so hard and heavy, it's blacker than the center of a blackhole. It's got taste so deep, it probably only speaks German.

Okay, techno-head jokes aside, this is some serious heat. More than 100 artist grace the bill, with two days of performances from Richie Hawtin, Nina Kraviz and Charlotte de Witte. Fan favorites Sven Väth and Adam Beyer headline the main stage Saturday and Sunday nights respectively. The lineup rounds out with sets from Maceo Plex, Kölsch, Joris Voorn, Joseph Capriati and way more.

The two-day event comes to Spaarnwoude, Amsterdam Saturday and Sunday, June 29 and 30. Tickets are on sale now. The event sold out in 2018, and organizers expect to welcome 80,000 this year, so don't sleep on those. Check the full lineup for Awakenings Festival 2019 below.
