"Why do I love techno?" This is a question thousands of festival-goers ask themselves every year only to find an answer inside one of techno's biggest annual celebrations, I Love Techno. Already in its 19th installment, the indoors festival hosted at the Flanders Expo in Ghent, Belgium has become a mandatory stapled event for many electronic music lovers because of the atmosphere, the heart, but most of all because for one night it's all about the sound of techno! Welcoming 35,000 techno enthusiasts this year, the warehouse sized 5-stage music phenomenon is guaranteed to ring one of the loudest crowds this year.
With a line-up bringing in talent from all over the globe, ILT's audience will be graced by the sounds of techno giants such as Jeff Mills, Rødhåd, Len Faki, Kr!z, Vitalic, Dave Clarke, and DJ Rush--and that's not even half of the night! What makes this year a little more enticing to the first-timers and even for those who are now on their 2nd, 4th, or even 10th ILT are the exclusive B2B sets by Gesaffelstein & Brodinski, Audion & Tiga, and Daniel Avery & Erol Alkan that have been set up to bring the loudest and warmest sounds through an experience you wont get anywhere else. Along with that, the numerable LIVE sets by Duke Dumont, Clean Bandit, Paula Temple, Underworld, Ten Walls, The Advent, and Superdicount 3 will bring innovative performances that will make November 8th another memorable night for all attendees.
If you haven't bought your ticket for the event yet, you can still purchase one through the official ILT website here. Aside from standard single tickets, they've also worked in special travel packages for those who plan on making a trip out of this event. So whether you live in a city nearby or outside of Europe, there's no reason why you should feel experiencing this year's ILT is out of reach.
