On Saturday morning of October 20th, it is the annual ADE after-hours at BRET, when masters of groove like Frenchman Dyed Soundorom (best known for being one part of globe trotting DJ outfit and label bosses Apollonia) and minimal specialist and cult deep digging DJ Voigtmann, who releases on Hello? Repeat and Yumé, all line-up. Also in on the action is Max Yaahs, a German who co-runs the much loved HardWorkSoftDrink label, which is responsible for some of the slickest electronic house tunes of recent years, with Makcim and Reiss also playing to make sure you keep on dancing well into the daytime.

Finally, it's to Shelter on Saturday 20th evening for one big closing event with the legendary Romanian minimal pioneers Praslesh aka Raresh & Praslea who are real heroes that cook up stripped back grooves and atmospheric sound worlds in which you can really get lost. Francesco Del Garda, who mixes up UK garage, classic house, weird techno and slippery electro when in the booth also plays, and Japan’s revered Fumiya Tanaka brings his highly sophisticated, simple but devastatingly effective techno with Ferro and Kristina rounding things out.

After entering through the main entrance, you will be given the choice of two gates—the Golden Gates of the Mystic Garden and the portal into Dockyard, behind which you can experience all of the musical and theatrical thrills of both concepts.

Or you can chose not to chose and wander back and forth between the two worlds. It's up to you.

The line up this year features returning favourites as well as hot new names from the worlds of deep house, tech house and techno, because Dockyard and Mystic Garden are about evolving and looking forward, not just repeating the same tricks over and over.
