The jubilee celebrations of the 25th anniversary of Tresor reach their peak this month with the first ever festival hosted by the club over four days from 21 – 24 July. The Tresor 25 Years Festival will be one of Tresor’s largest offerings to date in program and scale: it will take place not only in Tresor but also on the flower floor of Kraftwerk. The line-up of the Tresor 25 Years Festival is a who’s who of electronic history, a synthesis of the essence of a quarter century of activities for the club and label that initiated the techno movement in Berlin.
Staying faithful to its origins, the festival presents an all-star program of Detroit originators and advocates of the Detroit/Berlin axis, a selection of the most influential figures of the club and label history, as well as new innovators representing the future dimension of the Tresor institution. Tresor’s rich musical heritage extends itself through the new generations that constantly join the techno monthership, pushing the boundaries of its sound and expanding its definitions. An exceptional musical program set in the unique industrial grounds of Kraftwerk Berlin means the Tresor 25 Years Festival will be a historic event in the continuing story of the “Home Of Techno”.
Tonight in Kraftwerk we’ve got live performances by Surgeon, long-time collaborators Regis and James Ruskin as O/V/R and a live set from Automat. Top-notch DJ sets by Donato Dozzy, Dasha Rush, DJ Pete aka Substance, Sven von Thülen and Mischa. On the Tresor Floor we welcome terrific DJ sets by some of techno music’s most influential artists: James Ruskin, Regis, Sterac aka Steve Rachmad, the legendary DJ Hell, Jonas Kopp, J.C. and Mario Berger. The Ohm Floor carries the master techno torch with sets by Juan Atkins, Moritz von Oswald, René Löwe and resident Magda El Bayoumi.
