- Dozens of house and techno artists have been announced for the Dutch festival this summer, from Jeff Mills to John Digweed.
Awakenings have announced the lineup for their 2012 festival, officially dubbed the Jabbalympics.
The one-day summer event will once again take place at Spaarnwoude, a sprawling outdoor area about 20 kilometers outside of Amsterdam. The action will be spread across nine stages (one more than last year), including two open-air dance floors. As usual, the program runs the gamut of big room club sounds, but with a special emphasis on techno: Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke, Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, Ida Engberg, Speedy J, Marcel Fengler, Len Faki, Joseph Capriati and Marcel Dettmann with Ben Klock are only some of the hard and heavy names on this year's DJ lineup. Live sets will come from Planetary Assault Systems, The Advent with Industrialyzer and Voices From the Lake, AKA Donato Dozzy and Neel. Other highlights include Ricardo Villalobos, Robag Wruhme, Pan-Pot, John Digweed, San Proper and Fritz Kalkbrenner (who will play live). The whole thing takes place over 11 hours on Saturday, June 30.
