Reinier Zonneveld has completed the inaugural edition of his Live NOW Festival, raising the bar on the techno industry at large with a dominating 11 hour marathon performance. A legendary show that’s been in the works for years, Live NOW Festival took place at Hembrugterrein on the outskirts of Amsterdam, injecting the beautifully dilapidated grounds with the Dutch techno titan’s spirited sounds.
By playing around the clock with his full personal studio on stage, Reinier Zonneveld highlighted exactly why he sits at the forefront of techno. Over 11 wild hours, fans were treated to everything from nostalgic rave classics to spur of the moment improvisation, lush with vibrant live synthwork and moments of blisteringly fast beats.
“It’s not often I can perform for 11 hours in a row. At a festival, DJs usually only get a one-hour slot, which doesn’t always give me the opportunity to play certain tracks. When you can play for 11 hours, you get the chance to take a full journey through the music. That’s why I decided to create my own festival experience. I am extremely grateful to everyone who believed in the concept and to all the fans who bought tickets. Live NOW was completely sold out and it was great to pop together with 12,500 visitors.”
With Live NOW Festival now in the rear view mirror, Reinier Zonneveld is taking his sound back on the road, with upcoming dates across Europe, as well as a performances across the US.
