Those looking for their first proper rave: Voltage offers a weekend of pure and uncut techno across three mind-blowing stages on August 7 and 8.

In the past six years, Voltage Festival has positioned itself as the destination for real techno heads. Before the pandemic hit, a record 2019 edition drew in 7000 ravers from across the continent. With over 33% of tickets sold abroad, it’s clear the organization has carved out a comfortable place in the niche of techno purism. As the rules and regulations for outdoor music events are finally loosening up, Voltage is proud to present a new edition on Saturday August 7 and Sunday August 8, with a delicious looking lineup. Perhaps the biggest headliner is the location, the Transfo site in Zwevegem, an abandoned electricity plant. No better place to energize after a year of silence.

More than 50 artists representing the harder and darker sides of techno are scheduled to play. Absolute must-sees include Len Faki, British Murder Boys, Shed, AnD and loads of Belgian techno talent. In alphabetical order:

The stage hosts for the weekend: Kompass, Rimbu, Fuse, C12, Possession and Voltage Imprint (the festival's record label dedicated to pushing forward Belgian talent).

For this edition, the organization expects to sell out at maximum capacity, hosting 9000 ravers over two days. Tickets have flown out the door fast so far, so make sure to grab yours before it’s too late.
