19:30 – 21:00

Techno is getting on in years - and with it its pioneers. How does one age gracefully within a youth culture, especially when that's how one earns a living? Because: as much as the scene lives on openness and inclusivity, it is also characterized by excess and the life at night. Does it automatically exclude people who are no longer interested or physically up to it? How do musicians and DJs of the first hour remain relevant in a world that is spinning faster and faster, fueled by social media? Is it even a desirable goal to retire behind the decks? And when is it time to clear the field for the younger generation? language: german
