Incredible music against an idyllic backdrop

This year The Third Room have once again chosen the incredible setting of the Henrichshütte in Hattingen, a former steel & iron works founded in 1854, to transform into a raver’s dreamscape. 

For 150 years the Henrichshütte provided work for 10,000 people over the massive industrial site. This location provides a historic insight into the regions industrial heritage and provides an incredibly unique and beautiful setting for a festival.

Since opening as one of the largest open air museums to the public in 2000, this brutalist environment is slowly being repossessed by mother nature herself. Vines and shrubbery entwining with pipes and man-made structures create the perfect playground for dancers and festival goers.

The combination of carefully hand picked artists and a perfectly paired location sets us up for an incredible two day event this summer.

Although it’ll be hard to top the electric vibe from last year’s event, we can be sure to expect high energy from start to finish once again, against the dystopian backdrop of Henrichshütte.
