1. The people
Techno is the music that connects. All people on the floor share the feeling of love, connection and peace. Celebration connects. Techno connects. Finally normal people...
2. The Atmosphere
Techno stands for tolerance, respect and fun for everyone. Nobody is excluded here. At every party you meet people who are at least as crazy as we are.
A good techno party doesn't end when the club closes. Techno lovers always find refuge at some after hour. Be it with friends, under a bridge or in the next club. An encore in techno takes not only 5 minutes, but mostly 5 hours. Mostly just until the next party.
We love techno DJs who celebrate their music and not themselves. DJs who don't take themselves too seriously and love the music as much as we do. DJs we love.

5. The volume
Loud, louder, techno. It just can't be loud enough for us in a club, at a festival or at a rave. It has to pop in the ears and the bass should massage our whole body. At this volume, nobody stands a chance of standing still.
P.S. Watch your ears.
6. The Darkness
We love open air events and after hours when it's bright. But really heavy techno works best in complete darkness. That's why most techno temples like Berghain, Tanzhaus West or Robert Johnson are stock-dark. At least, most of the time. Techno needs long nights and darkness.
7. Never-ending techno nights
The motto of every raver: Techno all night long. We just love to party a bit longer than with other genres of music. If you leave a techno party before 6 a.m., you will get astonished looks from many. For those who like it longer, there's always the Afterhour.
Techno is a family thing. While the beat is on you are free and surrounded by friends and family who all share the same outlook on life. At raves you always meet new friends who know how to dance the night away in ecstasy.
9. A way of life
Techno is a way of life for all of us. More than that. Our refuge from worries, our friend from afar, and our antidepressant.
10. The Sounds
Techno is love down to the smallest detail. The celebration of a melody, a single note. Pure poetry. Free of texts intended to steer thought in certain directions. One can dream and forget everything around oneself.
