I LOVE TECHNO festival in Belgium

NOVEMBER 12
Global techno and underground music at the acclaimed I LOVE TECHNO festival in Belgium.

It’s pretty self-explanatory. If you love techno, attend I Love Techno. Since its inception in 1995, the event attracted so many techno lovers in Belgian and surrounding areas that it has outgrown the original space and now packs in upwards of 35,000 people at the Flanders Expo. There, five colored rooms (red, orange, yellow, blue and green) offer techno of different variants in addition to the enormous, buzzing main hall.

It’s one big moving, electronic, techno loving mass. And it just keeps on growing. As the organizers explain, “I love techno” is one of the top google.co.uk search phrases (followed by “I love movies”). So whether people are looking for the event in Belgium, or just love techno, data proves there is a need, a desire even, for I Love Techno. And the popularity is proven with ticket sales – the event sells out quickly, really quickly – so unless you plan on begging, borrowing or stealing a ticket at the entrance, you’ll need to plan years in advance. (Yes, seriously!)

FULL LINE UP TBA.
