Time-Warp Mannheim 2013 announced a huge line-up, bringing the crème de la crème of house and techno including, Carl Cox, Laurent Garnier, Ricardo Villalobos, Loco Dice and Marco Carola to the Maimarkthalle on 6th April – Trust us, this is worth a trip to Germany!
More than 40 DJs and five live-acts are waiting to perform as some of the truest, most talented and long standing artists and pioneers of the scene, are assembled for this staggering event. Besides worldwide known faces like Sven Väth and Richie Hawtin, there is a mixture of new and emerging names on the bill this year. As always it’s a relentless stream of who’s who from the top of the chart lists.
Stretching from the darker, harder realms of techno, to the groovier bass-laden beats of house music, we see artists span from Pan-Pot, to Dixon, to Jamie Jones and Dubfire. Seth Troxler, voted Resident Advisors Best DJ in 2012, makes an appearance as part of the Visionquest quartet. The Minus live-acts Gaiser and Matador will also take part in the proceedings, as well as the second four-strong team Keinemusik, with Adam Port, &ME, Rampa and David Mayer.
After his outstanding performance in Holland, Joseph Capriati is set and ready to play Mannheim. Well documented as one of the brightest new stars in techno, Capriati’s progression from newcomer to headliner has moved forward at an unstoppable pace. Not to miss of course, remarkable skills and mixes from incredible acts such as, Luciano, Magda, Ellen Allien, Nick Curly, Matthias Tanzmann and many more. The best and most in demand names will grace the stage, there’s too many to mention. The full lineup for Time-Warp Mannheim is listed in the official trailer on the Time Warp homepage, where you can also find VIP tickets.
Besides Time Warp preparations, the focus is also on the charity campaign, ‘Time Warp cares’. Five Time Warp t-shirts signed by Sven Väth will be auctioned off to raise money for the ‘Big Brothers Big Sisters Germany’ organisation, a mentoring program for disadvantaged children. The Time-Warp team will be adding a donation of £150 per shirt. The first one’s been sold, so look out for the rest!
High quality sounds, cutting edge technologies and underground vibes are what sets Time Warp apart. The authenticity, continuity and great connection with the scene is complimented by programming that’s characterised by electronic underground and highly regarded club sounds. The production does not strive for maximum flashy effects, but focuses on a perfect symbiosis between sound, light and video apparent in the extraordinary stage designs. Time Warp creates a microcosm for guests and artists, in which music and euphoria displace all sense of time.
One of the world’s most exceptional parties is about to begin…
“The Time Warp is not a festival, it is a rave and embodies the original values of the electronic music scene. From the music to the production to the audience – it’s all interlinked. This spirit is unique worldwide” - Laurent Garnier
