The German festival's first Italian outing features many of the usual suspects: Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice and more.
Though rooted firmly in the area around Mannheim, Germany, where the festival has taken place nearly every year since 1994, Time Warp occasionally throws one-off events in other cities around Europe—Prague and Vienna had their turns a few years ago, and last year the festival made its debut in Holland. This fall's edition in Milan has all the key factors that make the party what it is: most importantly, a slew of house and techno heavyweights, and an absolutely enormous space (Fiera Milano measures in at 345,000 square meters). The DJ bill so far includes familiar faces like Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin, Magda, Loco Dice, Carl Cox, Karotte, Ellen Allien and CLR boss Chris Liebing. More names are due to be announced in the months ahead.
