When the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, Tresor was one of the first techno temples to establish itself in the squat Mecca of East Berlin, taking over an abandoned department store in the Eastside district of Mitte.
25 years later, it’s changed location (to a renovated power plant in the same area), but it’s still hosting serious techno week in, week out, and putting out regular releases on the Tresor label. Now, they’re taking the Tresor brand on the road to celebrate 25 years of techno, travelling to Detroit, London, Amsterdam, and now Sydney and Melbourne.
The Australian leg features Tresor resident Marcellus and Berlin stalwart DJ Pete aka Substance, while support comes from local techno legend Biz-E and more. The organisers say it’s “shaping up to be the biggest techno tour of the year in Australia and the first time anyone has had be given the opportunity to host a club of this magnitude on these shores.”
The tour hits Melbourne on Friday 17 June at the Substation and Sydney on Saturday 18 June at Zoo Projects; the Melbourne stop is sadly sold out already, but Sydneysiders can still pick up tickets from $44 over here.
