Time Warp US
A sea of strobe lights, the iconic Cave, two nights of incredible underground EDM music and over 10000 people dancing to the beats- Time Warp’s U.S. debut in New York City was the place to be Thanksgiving weekend.
Since its kickoff event in Germany in 1994, Time Warp has been a staple of the underground EDM scene across Europe. For the last 20 years, Time Warp has hosted music festivals in Germany, the Netherlands, Czech Republic and Italy. This year, the festival finally crossed the ocean for the first time, first to Argentina in May and then the United States. Hosted at the former South Brooklyn Marine Terminal on November 28 and 29, the event featured 19 DJs on two stages. EDM music lovers danced off their turkey dinners as DJs including Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, and Sven Väth spun the tunes.
Inside the warehouse, the main room was transformed into the sprawling iconic Cave, a design modeled after a mysterious arctic ice cave. The impressive sea of strobe lights perfectly complemented the space age soundtrack with bass that rattled the ceiling and walls.
On Floor 2, where the second stage was located, the design was much more simple and stripped-down for an unquestionable underground atmosphere.
The line-up across both nights featured Time Warp regulars- Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin, and Pan-Pot to name a few, along with some American favorites including Josh Wink, The Martinez Brothers and Brooklyn’s own Anthony Parasole.
Countless fans 21 and older gathered near the bars where Warsteiner was poured as the Official Beer of Time Warp. As a long-time fixture in Germany’s techno scene, Warsteiner proudly served two of its flagship beers, WARSTEINER Premium German Pilsener and WARSTEINER Dunkel.
Another busy destination was the popular Warsteiner photo booth, where festival goers had a blast mixing and matching a ton of fun props.
