On Friday, November 20 and Saturday, November 21, Germany’s long-running techno staple Time Warp returned to U.S. shores for its second annual event in North America. The event took over two floors of the 39th Street Pier in Brooklyn, drawing over 10,000 fans over the weekend from more than over 35 different countries. Ticketholders were privy to a line-up stacked with a variety of the world’s top-tier legends like Ricardo Villalobos (his first stateside appearance in 13 years) Sven Väth and Chris Liebing, as well as rising artists such as Black Coffee and Seth Troxler, plus Vanjee, Nadav Vee and Shahar who performed a three-way back-to-back set. The festival’s famously elaborate production was also a highlight. Over the years, the global event has become well-known as the meeting place between a festival and warehouse party, and Time Warp has built its reputation by fusing dark, dancefloor-aligned techno with visceral custom stage production and lighting. This year was no exception as event organizers built out a custom setting they call ‘Cave 2.0,’ turning the first floor of the 39th Street Pier warehouse in to a giant cavern, designed and transported direct from Mannheim, the home of Time Warp.
