Awakenings, The techno festival in Holland, took over Spaarnwoude (Deelplan Houtrak) on June 28th and 29th. Spaarnwoude is a hamlet in the Dutch province of North Holland. Live sets have been made available online. These are the five sets that you should hit up, no matter what. Marilyn Monroe approved.   awakenings    

Drumcode Live (Alan Fitzpatrick, Joseph Capriati, Adam Beyer) - Awakenings Festival 2014, Day 2 Area W (Spaarnwoude)

I am shocked (but stoked) that Drumcode head Adam Beyer decided to stream the Drumcode Arena. Drumcode is by far my favorite techno label. Enjoy 5 hours of hard-hitting techno from Alan Fitzpatrick, Joseph Capriati, and Adam Beyer.

Luciano - Awakenings Festival 2014, Day 1 Area V (Spaarnwoude)

Luciano festival sets are probably the most fun live sets when they happen. Luciano has this "party tech house" persona going on, and it's such an amazing experience. Some of Luciano's most recent festival sets (We Are FSTVL 2014) have been among his best ever.

Pan-Pot - Awakenings Festival 2014, Day 2 Area V (Spaarnwoude)

The German techno duo requires no introduction. The hour and 43 minute excursion was everything that I had hoped for and more.

John Digweed - Awakenings Festival 2014, Day 2 Area V (Spaarnwoude)

Digweed's energy and track selection was just outstanding here. Easily one of his best sets in recent memory.  

Luigi Madonna - Awakenings Festival 2014, Day 1 Area X (Spaarnwoude)

I have heard a few of Luigi Madonna's sets. I need to hit up more of his material. That track at 12 minutes though. DAMN.
