Telekom Electronic Beats Live is back! In 2022, we want to claim iconic spaces for new voices: to initiate new dialogues, support artistic innovation and empower the voices we believe need to be heard more clearly.
Let’s create new cultural encounters, and celebrate a peaceful and optimistic gaze towards future. For inclusion of all, these experiences will take place both in the Metaverse and in real life. Come and join us!

Claiming space for new voices
The Electronic Beats Festival visits Budapest on June 11th
For the third stop of our return to live events, we are visiting one of the most iconic spaces in eastern Europe: Főzdepark in Budapest. The vast industrial complex will be turned into a glittering showcase that will celebrate artistic expression, diversity and optimism.
By connecting progressive artists to a place that is deeply rooted in Budapest’s heritage and now contributes to its creative blossoming, we want to reclaim spaces for voices that deserve to be heard more clearly. That said – here is our line-up for the day:

Zagreb's Kockica cube hosts young stars
We are claiming two more iconic stages for a diverse line-up on September 10th
Stop number four in this year’s Telekom Electronic Beats Festival tour is Zagreb. We will meet our friends and followers in Croatia in two locations – one during the day and one club night. For both, we’re bringing some of the most innovative young artists from across Europe.
For the day show, we will set up our stage in front of the Kockica building – the postmodern cube that has become a landmark. We’re looking forward to claim space for electronic music’s eternal messages of inclusivity and freedom of expression, offering it to Zagreb’s enthusiastic crowd.

Join us at Beethovenfest
Bring your friends – we'll bring ours: Hania Rani & Alarm Will Sound
Beethovenfest celebrates the famed composer’s legacy by pointing to the future. This year, we’re curating an evening section of the programme, and we are inviting Hania Rani and Alarm Will Sound to play Bonn’s Pantheon.
An accomplished pianist, composer and overall musical virtuoso, Hania Rani weaves her piano-based pieces with electronic elements to create a deep, spherical mood that magicaly alludes to states of meditation and rave at the same time. Hania is going to play an exclusive live set for us.
The US-based ensembla dubs its work “Acoustica”, marrying Electronica and acoustic music to create all-new, mesmerizing musical experiences of well-know electronic pieces. Referencing the sound of after hours and chill-out spaces, Alarm Will Sound’s orchestral takes of tracks by the likes of Aphex Twin and Tim Exile point to the tight relation between classical music and the club – adding future-forward perspectives to Beethoven Fest.
The Grande Finale
We're closing our 2022 at Bikini Beach Bonn with the patron saint of Techno: Sven Väth
Surprise, surprise! We’ve got one more trick up our sleeves to close this year’s epic tour through Europe and the Multiverse. In a summit of generations, we’re pairing two bright stars with Sven Väth, the patron saint of Techno. We cannot think of a better way to demonstrate that Electronic music knows no age and no borders. The line-up:
“I missed the rave, and I missed the bodies and the sweat, I missed the good spirits, and I missed the laughter”, Sven tells us. “Our music has always been about connecting people and connecting generations. I could not be more thankful to be back where I belong.”
Our closing event will take place at Bonn’s Bikini Beach, for the proper outdoor vibe. Tickets are limited – get yours now!
