Check op tijd of je je aansluiting nog kunt halen. Het kan druk zijn. Gok daarom voor de terugreis niet op de laatste trein, maar neem een trein eerder. Hoe goed we ook snappen dat je tot het allerlaatste moment wilt blijven..

DE REACTIE is easily accessible by train. The Enschede Kennispark (formerly Drienelo) train station is a 10-minute walk from the University of Twente festival site. Therefore, there are no shuttle buses.

Be prepared:

  • Plan your journey in advance on the 9292 website.
  • Check in time whether you can still catch your connection. It can be busy. Don’t gamble on the last train for your return journey, but take an earlier train. As much as we understand that you want to stay until the very last moment…
  • During your journey, keep an eye on the digital screens and announcements at stations and in trains for up-to-date information.

Basic Grooves - A dedicated group of music fans.

20/08/18

Basic Grooves is one of the longest running techno organisations in The Netherlands. The infamous club nights have become a corner stone of the techno scene in the east. In recent years, artists like Jeff Mills, Robert Hood, Dave Clarke, DVS1, Avalon Emerson, Charlotte de Witte and Paula Temple found their way to Enschede to headline the events.

Founded in 1996, the club nights were intended as a response to the rising popularity of electronic music events. The club nights quickly became a breeding ground for a generation of new artists and promoters, ranging from Joris Voorn to Brent Roozendaal.

The club nights are followed by a huge rave on Kingsday (27 April) by the name of DE REACTIE. The location for this rave is Langezijds, a former chemistry laboratory on the campus of Universiteit Twente. April 2019 will be the last chance to experience this incredible location, as it is scheduled for renovations.

Last but not least, Basic Grooves is behind the only techno festival this side of the country: Onder De Radar Festival. This house & techno festival takes place at an abandoned military airbase in Enschede. The first edition was a huge success, with positive reviews from Resident Advisor and many of the artists on the line-up. The second edition is set for the 27th of July, and it’s going to be something to look out for.

All in all, the passion for techno is our guide. Techno events by a dedicated group of music fans.

REGULAR PRESALE STARTS TODAY

Things are moving and it shows! It’s no surprise really, now that the government is opening our industry as well, without any restrictions.

The regular presale for DE REACTIE 2022 starts at 16:00h today. 👏  The prospects are good with an artist like Dax J: a headliner of note that hasn’t played our side of the country before. Or VTSS, who managed to steal our hearts in one night with her incredible set in the Muziekcentrum last fall.

The tide is turning! Slowly but surely more and more positive sounds are doing the rounds, and it’s sounding optimistic through the grapevine. With DE REACTIE (Kingsdag) on our horizon, our hearts are starting to beat faster as well.

But as it often is, we first have to cash in another setback. We won’t be able to get a permit for the Drukpershal, even though this was all sorted for the edition in November. But after over 2 years of cancellations this on top? No way. If we can’t get a characteristic industrial location for our event, then we’ll build one our damn selves!

We’re getting a one time opportunity to build our own location on the beautiful terrain of the Universiteit Twente campus. More info on the new presale and line-up will follow soon! And regarding DE REACTIE in the Drukpershal: stay tuned…
