VOLTAGE ANNOUNCES ELECTRIFYING TECHNO LINE UP FOR 2020

After the record edition of 2019, VOLTAGE is preparing to hit even harder in the new decade. The abandoned power plant, Transfo in Zwevegem, welcomes a mix of the best and hippest national and international techno artists, on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August.

The announcement of the complete line-up will make many techno-hearts skip a beat. With none other than Len Faki, Karenn, 999999999, British Murder Boys, SPFDJ and Anetha on the festival’s bill, the second weekend of August is one to look forward to!

A series of local, national and international artists will bring the old power plant back to life on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August with their relentlessly rough techno. More than 50 artists complete the line-up, with Len Faki as the absolute headliner.

The line-up is further strengthened by the duo VTSS and Randomer, under the name of their musical project Body Sushi. The French DJ, producer and label owner, Anetha, will also be present. She is seen as the new generation’s leading figure and her musical DNA – a mix of EBM, trance, electro and old school ’90s techno – goes hand in hand with VOLTAGE’s concept. Viper Diva, the brand-new project of Taapion Records label owner Shlømo and his French countryman Hadone, will also head to the picturesque city of Zwevegem in August.

VOLTAGE always delivers a fine selection of live sets. This year it’s brought by Karenn, consisting of the renowned duo Blawan and Pariah. As well as the Italian duo 999999999, who already blew up the Turbine stage in 2018. The British Murder Boys, aka Regis and Surgeon, who have not performed in Belgium for 11 years (apart from their performance in C12). Last but definitely not least, five amazing live sets brought by: the Germans Desroi and Shed, the English duo AnD and the Belgians Techno Thriller and Siwei.

The artists will be divided over three stages: the Anode, the Turbine and since 2018, the Rotor stage. Several organizations aregiven the opportunity to host their own stage and to let their DJ selection go wild on the VOLTAGE fans. There will be six hosts, including three returning ones: the French collective Possession, the Ghent techno concept Kozzmozz and the Ghent acid organization Rimbu. Brand new hosts are Fuse, the longest running techno temple in Belgium, C12 that finished second in the “Belgian club top 30” at the 2019 Red Bull Elektropedia awards and Voltage Imprint, the eponymous label with promising Belgian talents. These six hosts will treat their fans with the best techno kings and queens of the moment Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August.
