EXIT Festival has announced the full Dance Area line-up for its 2016 edition, which includes the debut of Richie Hawtin’s new live show. The festival runs between Thursday 7th and Sunday 10th July and will also welcome Hot Since 82, Marco Carola, Nina Kraviz and Solomun.


In January Hawtin revealed that he won’t be taking ENTER. back to Ibiza this year, and this live show, which is also on the bill for Barcelona’s Sónar festival in June, is the first major news of his summer plans. Few other details about Hawtin’s new live guise have been revealed though, aside from the fact that he’s been working closely with EXIT Festival’s organisers in coordinating the show.
