Stephan Bodzin (Live)
Stephan Bodzin is unquestionably one of the most influential artists in the dance world today. A techno pioneer and enduring legend, Bodzin consistently finds ways to further propel his reign into dance music stardom. His dominance and prestige has recently gone from not only producing many of the greatest techno songs of all time, but into the synth drenched world of live performance. Bodzin produces a warm and electro-infused sound with melancholic melodies that thrive in his live show. During sets, just like on his tracks individually, listeners are taken on a journey with all the twists and turns of a dramatic spate watching live theatre. With multiple albums, numerous releases, a record label and the headline slot at any festival or event worth its salt, Stephan Bodzin is quite literally on top of the world.

Marcel Dettmann (3hrs)
DJ and producer Marcel Dettmann is recognised as one of the most influential proponents of contemporary techno. Widely associated with iconic trademarks including Berlin, Berghain and Hard Wax, Dettmann stays true to his roots by consistently innovating his interpretation of electronic music. As a passionate DJ and one of the faces of Berghain, Dettmann seeks to inspire his listeners with sounds both reduced and rough, balanced by emotional and surprising moments throughout his sets. Between pure techno, banging Chicago, tracks old and new of the past twenty-five years, Marcel Dettmann communicates his message with an apparent effortlessness.
