Why visit a techno festival in Germany?

German techno festivals are unique. It’s not without a reason that people from all over the world visit them. Here are the main reasons why you should visit a techno festival in Germany:

  • Affordable: Electronic festivals in Germany are affordable. You usually pay about 50€ per day and that’s less than most other western countries.
  • Bring your own liquor: In most other countries you can only bring your own liquor to the campsite. On most techno festivals in Germany you can bring that liquor to the dance-floor too.
  • Great line-ups: When it comes to techno and other electronic music, Germany offers loads of talented DJs and many of them are excited to play at techno festivals in the summer of 2023.
  • Friendly Atmosphere: Sustainability, mutual respect and taking care of each other are very important values on electronic festivals. We can confirm that the festivals in this list offer a friendly and peaceful atmosphere.
Techno festivals around Berlin are all about the values above

The best electronic music festivals in Germany

As the title implies, all festivals in this list focus mainly on electronic music. Techno, electro and house often have a dedicated stage but on most festivals you also will find smaller stages with other electronic music styles like trance, disco, dubstep, drum & bass and more. Some of the larger festivals have a stage for bands. The ranking in this post is mainly based on the price per day, the atmosphere, the quality of the line-up and the location.

To make it easy to compare the techno festivals in Germany, you can also jump to the overview of all information at the end of this post.


01. Fusion Festival 2023

If you ever have read an article about the best festivals in the world you must have noticed that the German festival called Fusion is almost always featured in the top 14. Fusion (or Фузион) is different from any other festival in the world and we would recommend everybody to visit it at least once. The first edition of this German festival was organised in 1997 and the location has always been a military basis called Lärz. About 150km from Berlin around than 70.000 people come together to forget about their daily lives and have a good time.

The best techno festival in Germany in 2023

It is hard to explain what makes Fusion Festival the best German festival. It might be the fact that you can choose between 20 different stages with great electronic DJs. Or maybe it’s the huge amount of other entertainment like karaoke, workshops, stand-up comedy and poetry-slams. But in the end we believe it’s mainly the unique vibe that makes the real difference. On this electronic festival everything seems to be allowed but nobody is misbehaving. It’s this laidback atmosphere with almost no rules which is unique.

More than 5 days of dance festival for 220€

Just like the parties in Berlin, Fusion has extreme opening hours. The official line-up starts on Thursday and keeps going until Monday. But you are allowed on the campsite on Wednesday already and there are small after-parties until almost one week after that. The price of a ticket for Fusion Festival is 220€ which is quite a bit but if you break it down it’s less than 50€ per day.

Why visit the Fusion Festival?

Twenty different stages, a great line-up and an official line-up from Thursday until Monday. Then of course there is the unique atmosphere: The Fusion Festival is different from other festival and that makes it attractive.

02. Wilde Möhre Festival

About 120km south of Berlin you can find a forest in which the Wilde Möhre is organised every year. The first edition was organised in 2013 and in our opinion this German festival gets better every year. It showed so much dedication that this festival even took place in the tough Corona-year 2020. The organisers just makes many great choices and really listen to their visitors. One great choice was sticking to several smaller editions of Wilde Möhre instead of having one annual editions which was quite crowded.

The Wilde Möhre Festival
The Wilde Möhre Festival

Choose which Wilde Möhre fits you best

As mentioned above, there will be several editions of the Wilde Möhre festival. They all offer electronic music but besides that they have a slightly different focus. The music on Wilde Möhre was great. There is usually a stage with techno but also some stages with more melodic electronic music. Last year talented DJs like Bebetta, Isabeau Fort and David Jach were performing. Besides music you can play table-tennis, eat some great vegetarian food and join things like karaoke and workshops. Here are the editions in 2023:

  • Seelenschaukel – 28.07. – 31.07.2023
    Besides DJs you can enjoy Workshops focused on Body & Soul (e.g. Meditation, Yoga)
  • Klimperkiste – 11.08. – 14.08.2023
    Besides DJs there will also be Bands and other live-acts and DIY-Workshops
  • Maskenball 18.08. – 21.08.2023
    Besides DJs you will be able to enjoy performances and inspiring presentation

Why visit Wilde Möhre Festival?

For us it feels more relaxed to be on a smaller festival like Wilde Möhre. You will meet the same people more than once and find your friends when you lost them (which always happens). The fact that the organisation actually listens to it’s visitors might be an even stronger argument to go here.

Name: Wilde Möhre Festival 2023

03. Feel Festival 2023

A German festival with one of the best locations is the Feel Festival. It’s located directly at the water of the Bergheider See and you can dance and camp on the beach of that water. Besides water the Feel Festival also has several stages in a forest and a versatile program with workshops, performances and other forms of entertainment. The Feel Festival really deserved a top-3 spot in this list with best festivals in Germany.

Every year around 10.000 people visit this dance festival at the Waldsee in Grünefeld, which is only 60km from Berlin. The festival officially starts on Friday 15.00 and keeps going until Sunday 21.00. You could say that Nation of Gondwana focuses on quality over quantity.

The vibe on this festival is very friendly and this might be related to the amount of visitors: About 4500 people visit this festival every year and the reviews are solely positive. Smaller festivals like this are great because you will meet the same people several times and you do not have to walk far between stages.

11. Melt Festival

In 1997, more than 20 years ago, some of the most famous German festivals was organised for the first time. The Melt Festival is located at an abandoned colliery which goes by the name Ferropolis. The Ferropolis is often referred to as the City of Iron because a lot of large machines and old cranes can still be found on this island. This might not sound spectacular at first, but the island is a very unique location for a festival. Besides the nice location Melt also offers 12 different stages with many famous headliners in all sorts of music-categories.

Famous names – Versatile music styles

Compared to other festivals in this list, Melt can be called a more commercial festival. The headliners, the large sponsors and the prizes differ to festivals like Mit Dir Festival,Fusion and Nation of Gondwana. But this is not necessarily a bad thing: If you like headliners like Bicep, Solomun, Boys Noize, Marcel Dettmann and many more will be performing in the summer of 2023. Melt used to be one of the more expensive festivals but the price has stayed stable the last couple of years and with 169€ it’s one of the more affordable festivals in 2023.

2 Dancefloors from Friday till Sunday

The Jubel Jahre Festival offers 2 dance-floors with mostly electronic music. The stages open on Friday 12.00 and close on Sunday 20.00.

But the good thing is that it’s affordable: If you manage to find 4 friends you only pay 555€ for 5 tickets which is a fair price.

13. Habitat Festival

The Habitat Festival is a festival which mainly focuses on electronic music and is organised in Hamburg. From Berlin you need about 2,5 hours by train. Habitat is shorter than the other German festivals in this list because it starts on Saturday around 14.00 and ends on Sunday 22.00. Last year no camping was included in the ticket but the organisation promised us they are trying to change this for the summer of 2023. This is great for the people who like to lay down before they travel home.

32 hours of techno in Hamburg

As mentioned above, the Habitat Festival is a bit different than the other techno festivals in this list: It’s basically a non-stop rave of 32 hours. As mentioned the Habitat is a bit shorter but this is also represented in the ticket-prices: Tickets can be bought for 55€ (Early Bird) which makes it the cheapest techno festival in this list. Last year Techno-DJs like Ellen Allien, Joseph Disco, Bloody Mary and Annett Gapstream performed on this techno festival in Germany.

Why visit Habitat Festival?

If you do not need to party for 3 days straight and do not like to spend 200€ on a festival-ticket, Habitat might be the right techno festival for you. There will be plenty of nice techno DJs on 8 different stages and you do not have to bring all your camping-stuff along.

14. SonneMondSterne 2023

The year 1997 was quite a special year for German festivals because besides Melt and Fusion it was also the first year SonneMondSterne was organised. In that year, already more than 25 years ago, only 2500 people visited the first SonneMondSterne. Nowadays SonneMondSterne got a lot larger and more popular and the last years about 40.000 people enjoyed this electronic festival. The festival takes place close to Saalburg and as you can see on the image below, it might be a good idea to pack your bikini and/or swim short.

The German festival SonneMondSterne (© facebook.com/SonneMondSterne.Festival)
The German festival SonneMondSterne (© facebook.com/SonneMondSterne.Festival)

Headliners like Armin van Buuren and Macklemore

If you looking for famous headliners SonneMondSterne is definitely the best electronic festival in Germany for you. With names like Ben Böhmer, Boris Brejcha, Charlotte de Witte, Amelie Lens, Armin van Buuren and Macklemore the line-up already looks awesome right now. More large names will be added step by step. The only reason why we do not rank SonneMondSterne a bit higher is because this festival is more commercial than the other festivals and also does not have that friendly vibe like Wilde Möhre, Mit Dir or 3000 Grad.

Why visit SonneMondSterne?

The line-up is the main argument to visit SonneMondSterne. We love the real Berliner techno festivals but if you read names like Charlotte de Witte and Boris Brejcha you get quite excited. The location is also great and the price is more than reasonable if you look at the line-up.

Name: SonneMondSterne Festival 2023
Address: Saalburg-Ebersdorf

Price including camping: 169€

  1. Hi,… Can you tell me a Dance festival / competition around April or May in Germany where many foreign dance groups take part. We are from Malaysia and we would like to bring our cultural dance troup to participate here. Hope its a good event to expose our dancers.

    Pls advise

      Hey Angeline,

      unfortunately I cannot answer that question. Especially because it is still almost one full year away.

      But you can of course contact some of the festivals in the list and ask if you can perform there.

      Good luck!

  2. hey Job, firstly – Thank YOU! This is the best piece ive read on festivals – I’m specifically scouting for a techno festival in Germany for this year.
    I’m definitely visiting Berlin Atonal (would you equate that to be in a “festival list”?), and I’m also looking for another festival. I came across this new festival –> 18/7001, which apparently happens in the same location as Her Damit; the lineup looks good, and the location is intriguing.

    Which of these 3 festivals would you recommend the most (i’ve shortlisted these) –> Greenwood Festival; Nation of Gondwana; or 18/7001 (check it out –> https://7001festival.com/)?
    The location/setting and the Berlin techno sounds is the most important to me!

      Hey Divesh,

      thanks for your comment and compliments.

      From these three festivals I would choose between Nation and the new festival. Because I cannot judge the new festival yet, I can only tell you that Nation is a very nice festival. So that would be a safe bet.

      We will definitely consider listing 18/7001 next year.

      Best wishes!

  3. Hello,

    Wich places are a Must.. This is my first time there.

    Kind regards,

  5. Anything after September ?? No festival or EDM concerts in winters 🙁

    • Hi Jazz,

      unfortunately there are not big weekend-festivals anymore. It is just too risky with the weather I guess.

      Maybe just come to Berlin and visit some great clubs and parties?

  6. What about the nation of gondwana? U seriously cant Pick shit like Helene beach Over the nog.
    They had maybe the sickest line up this year.
    Besides that its real close(45min b car) away From Berlin.

  7. Hi, just wanted to highlight that the lineup for Berlin Festival is from 2015 and most likely the festival is not going to take place this year because they are on a “Creative Break”. Maybe you should update the page accordingly 🙂

      Hi,

      you are totally right that Nature One is one of the best German festivals. But as you can read in the introduction, we only focused on festivals which are about 2-3 hours drive from Berlin.

      Have a great summer!

  8. Thanks for the tips! We’re looking for a festival in 2016 so this will help. 😀

      Hi Dave,

      Great that my blog could help you decide. The article with the festivals for 2016 will be online in the beginning of next year.

      Cheers!
