This Easter, Scotland’s leading promoters Night Vision are returning to Edinburgh with their ground-breaking festival concept; Terminal V. Landing on April 20th, the daytime event follows their massive Halloween showcase last year which rocked the city.
Whether you’re new to the Terminal V movement or you’re a regular to their previous showcases, this needs to be on your Easter to-do list. Take a look at our reasons why below.
Richie Hawtin, Chris Liebing, Maceo Plex, Helena Hauff and Nastia have all been confirmed for the Area V stage, bringing with them an assault of techno that will ring through the arena. Meanwhile, Patrick Topping, Mella Dee, Mall Grab and Green Velvet will take charge of the controls on the Terminal stage, with many names still to be announced across both stages.
2. Richie Hawtin’s first Edinburgh appearance for 18 years
Yep, that’s right. One of the true titan’s of techno will be returning after an 18 year hiatus. Sure to bring with him the iconic minimalistic mayhem he’s become known for, he’ll no doubt be marking his return to the city with a bang. If that’s not already reason enough, then feel free to carry on reading…
3. Production (Who doesn’t love a laser?)
Terminal V’s production looks bloody bonkers. With enough lasers to make your eyes explode and strobes to send you into an epileptic fit, you’re getting more than a rave, you’re getting an audiovisual masterclass.
Anyone who’s been to Edinburgh knows it’s a gem of a location. A city bursting with character, history and landmarks to make your trip worth the while. The venue itself is adjacent to Edinburgh Airport for anyone travelling by plane, and only 20-30 minute drive from Edinburgh centre.
The Royal Highland Centre is a landmark in itself, with the multi-purpose venue previously playing host to international stars from the likes of David Bowie and Oasis. Today it holds over 200 events, attracting 1 million visitors every year.
6. Shuttle busses
Travelling to and from a venue can often be a nightmare. With this in mind, Terminal V will be running a shuttle bus service to and from Edinburgh city to avoid those dreaded taxi costs. More info on this will be released via the event page closer to the event.
7. Deposit plan on tickets
Nobody wants to fork out for a ticket in one go. Thankfully Terminal V have introduced a deposit plan to help spread the cost. You can secure yours with just £17.49 upfront, more info available via the official ticket link here.
There’s no question this will be an Easter party to remember. Grab your tickets while you can here.
