Amsterdam’s Awakenings imprint has taken over our news feeds for a while now with their huge shows in one of the most aesthetic clubs in the world, Gashouder. Of course the brand doesn’t stop at just club shows. Once a year they take over the quiet hamlet of Spaarnwoude, just outside Amsterdam to throw the biggest outdoor festival in the world. 70,000 revellers flocked to this year’s Awakenings Festival to enjoy the mind-boggling lineup including the likes of DJ Rush, Adam Beyer, Dax J and Sven Väth.
We’ve picked out 5 of our favourite mixes that were recorded over the weekend by Be-At TV.
