- The Cocoon boss, James Holden, Loco Dice and Gaiser will all play sets at the festival's offshoot in Rotterdam this December.
Mannheim's Time Warp festival will return to Rotterdam for their second large Dutch event of 2009 this December.
As with last year's bash, the Rotterdam edition of Time Warp will take place in the city's Maassilo warehouse, spanning five rooms of cutting edge house and techno. Cocoon boss and Time Warp regular Sven Vath will take the honour of headlining the main room, and he'll be joined behind the decks by James Holden and Michel De Hey as well as fellow Cocooner Karotte. There's a heavy presence of German artists on the rest of the bill, with Loco Dice, Daniel Stefanik, Marek Hemmann and Nekes all being selected to go west for the weekend, while Chris Liebing is scheduled to play head-to-head with Dutch techno hero Speedy J as part of the latter's Collabs project.
Darko Esser, Daniel Sanchez, Sandeep, Dennis Ruyer, DJ Remy and Secret Cinema will ensure that the Dutch scene is well represented, and Plus 8 and Minus fans should be happy to hear that Marco Carola, Gaiser and Click Box will all play sets in the upstairs area.
