Time Warp Mannheim 2013
The concept behind Timewarp isn’t a particularly revolutionary one. In essence, the promoters gather the most loved and respected figures from the world of house and techno—and throw them all together for one massive party in Mannheim, Germany.

What sets Timewarp apart, however, isn’t simply the cosmopolitan crowd, the vast, 20,000 strong arena, or even, the line-up. No, what sets Timewarp apart is the cast’s penchant for bringing their A-game.

From unlikely back2back partnerships, to extraordinary live concepts to marathon sets, it’s a festival with an almost unique penchant for musical triumphs.

It’s also now considered a curtain raiser of sorts for the impending Ibiza season, with Sven Vath amongst though who tend to road test much of their newly found gems on what’s always a fervent, captive and demanding audience.

With mainstays of the festival such as Väth, Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Carl Cox and Ricardo Villalobos all appearing (as well as others such as Dixon, Visionquest and Tommy Four Seven), fans of peak-time sounds will miss this one at their peril.

Sure, the line up might hasn’t evolved that much over time, but that’s because every one of them involved here continue to play relevant roles in the underground. This April, all roads once again lead to Mannheim. The good news is that this year’s edition looks set to be every bit as spectacular as to what’s come before.
