FAQ – CANCELLATION DE REACTIE 2021

Unbelievable, but true. Once again we were so close, until the whole thing got cancelled after all. DE REACTIE 2021 cannot take place, and that hurts. A lot. Everything was looking perfect for this event: the timing, the location, the line-up. This could only be incredible. Unless the entire thing doesn’t even happen, of course.

Since the event is not taking place, we are offering two options to all purchasers of tickets. We are unequivocally asking you to choose option 1, and we will elaborate on that below.

OPTION 1: MOVE YOUR TICKET TO DE REACTIE 2022 (27 April/ Kingsday)
Of course we’re going to make up for this big time. The new date is 27 April (Kingsday) 2022. Ideally we see you there as well, so we hope that you’ll move your ticket to this next edition. By choosing this option you helps us massively! With this option, you give us certainty and support. We need this to get to work with the next events. Furthermore, there is a significant chance for the ticket price to be higher next year due to higher costs, in which case you are benefitting from moving your ticket to next year. No action is required from you for this option! It happens automatically. Lost your order? Request an overview by using this link.

OPTION 2: REQUEST A REFUND (possible until Tuesday 30 November)
However, we do understand that for several reasons the above option might not work for you. Therefore it is possible to get your money back. With the above reasoning in mind, we really hope you’ll only go for this option if you see no other way. Aside from that it is thus possible that tickets for this event will be sold at a higher price. Having said that: the option is there. Under What if I can’t make it in April 2022? below, you will find information on how to request a refund.

LOCATIE EN EERSTE NAMEN BEKEND

07/10/21

The Drukpershal on Getfertsingel in Enschede. For years the impressive venue is mainly collecting dust, even though it belongs to the most precious buildings of our city. And it’s one of the most suitable buildings for DE REACTIE! The architecture seems in tune with techno. The pillars, the concrete, the mystery, it’s a seamless fit with everything DE REACTIE stands for. But let’s let this rave temple speak for itself. Have a look at the video to get an impression.

The first artists were revealed today. And this is just the beginning!

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.

DE REACTIE IS CANCELLED

13/11/21

Well people. DE REACTIE 2021 is not happening. The new measures won’t allow it en so there is no other choice than to reschedule the entire event.

So much good stuff was prepared for us. This is really a tough one once again. But let’s rather skip the melodramatic part. This disappointment can only be put in words in so many ways, and we’ve run out of superlatives. 💔

We’re going to catch up on all of this on 27 April 2022. Early next week all ticket holders will receive an email from us that offers two options: keep your ticket for the next edition, or request a refund.

We’re going to be busy taking this knock. You’ll hear from us soon.

Time to properly polish this raw diamond in our city! It sure seems like it’s going to be massive, the 27th of November. Clearly there’s a lot of enthusiasm for a big party all around, but we never expected this wave of joy. It’s still a little more than a month to wait, but it feels legendary already. Time for a legendary line-up! 19 amazing artists, spread over 3 areas in and around the infamous venue in Enschede. And all of that for no less than 10 hours!
