Being a Techno fan in Germany must be great. Not only is it Mecca for Techno, but its also famous for throwing parties in some absurd locations.

It goes without saying, the Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex is one of those absurd locations. During its active industrial period, the Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex was the largest coal mine in the world. The mine was shut down in 1986 and since then has been a mainstay in the art, culture and creative sectors, attracting more than two million visitors a year.

This past weekend saw the mine transformed from a cultural attraction to a Techno lover’s dream. Telekom Electronic Beats teamed up with Baka Gaijin to host the likes of Ben UFO, Objekt, and Shanti Celeste. The event featured two floors, a pool, and a capped capacity of only 1,000 partygoers.
