This summer, Dutch techno royalty Reinier Zonneveld will be back with his own brand-new Karren Maar Festival and is set to take over the historical Stadsblokken in Arnhem (The Netherlands) on Saturday August 5th. Named after Zonneveld’s signature phrase, Karren Maar Festival will see Reinier Zonneveld as the only artist taking the mainstage, playing a technical live set for hours on end. The second area will be hosted by his imprint Filth On Acid. During the event, the techno giant will make an attempt to break his own personal record and break the world record for the longest live set ever. Tickets will go on sale from March 9th, fans can pre-register for tickets via karrenmaarfestival.nl.
Reinier Zonneveld has quickly grown into one of the biggest names in the techno scene. His unmatched technical and classical music skills have earned him a fanbase like no other in the Techno scene, making him one of the few artists in the scene selling out huge stages and arenas with his signature marathon live sets.
Zonneveld will bring out all his studio gear for Karren Maar Festival and will treat fans with an extended live set featuring well-known classics, as well as many unreleased tracks, combined with improvised creations by the man behind the music. Zonneveld’s imprint Filth On Acid will host the second stage, to which they will bring upcoming talent as well as established artists in the scene.
Reinier Zonneveld: “I can’t wait to take things to the next level with Karren Maar Festival this year. I don’t often get the chance to do such a long show at a festival, and that makes me even more excited to rave with 25,000 visitors at my own festival this summer.”
The artwork for Karren Maar Festival was specially designed by artist Bram Reijnders: “Last year, I got really inspired to connect my art to Reinier´s bold music. That’s why I created a piece built out of his history on various billboards and posters.”
Tickets for Karren Maar Festival are available from March 9th. Fans can pre-register via karrenmaarfestival.nl.
