Festival fever: Chateau Techno festival May 25th Amsterdam West

2 May 2013

pinterst: my inspiration for festival outfits

Chateau Techno festival at the Western harbour district in Amsterdam

Festival seasons is open now!! One of the first festivals of the season is Chateau Techno. On the 25th of May Chateau Techno celebrates it second birthday with the first festival at the harbour district in Amsterdam West. Three indoor and outdoor areas make it one of those cosy smaller festivals we all love so much :-). There are some names in the line up announced already: Stacey Pullen (USA), Octave One (USA) LIVE, Sasha Carassi (IT), Gayle San (SIN) and Marco Bailey (BE). And the Dutch DJ’s: 2000andOne, Juan and Daniel Sanchez (b2b), Kabale und Liebe, Ici Sans Merci, Esther Duijn, Ceno-Symphonics (live), Joey Daniel, Olene Kadar and Kevin Arnemann. I remember those oldschool techno parties where Stacey Pullen spinned Detroit techno and can’t wait to check it out at Chateau Techno again. The main stage at Chateau Techno will be a huge castle and there are plenty of healthy food trucks and street artists to entertain you. So shop a festival outfit and I see you at Chateau Techno!
