Nowhere else in the world does techno quite like Germany, which is why Mannheim festival Time Warp has remained a staple of Southwest Germany’s music scene for as long as it has. Case in point: The events organizers have released the official lineup for its 2016 edition, which reads like a veritable who’s who of dance music’s original “other” genre.
Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox and Dubfire are but a few of the veteran artists on the lineup. Adam Beyer and Nicole Moudaber will bring some of the Drumcode energy to the occasion (although most artists who belong to the label are considered too mainstream by true techno elitists), and The Martinez Brothers and Jamie Jones are even likely to incorporate a little house groove into their performances for those seeking some semblance of variety.
Time Warp has taken place in numerous locations since its inaugural 1994 edition, but on April 2nd it will return to its most recent location: The Maimarkthalle in Mannheim. Check out the full lineup for the festival below and let us know what you think.
