The Pioneer Festival
VooV Experience is considered by many to be responsible for the spread of psytrance throughout Europe. It is, in fact, one of the oldest, and still running, psytrance festivals in the world. The festival happens annually in Putlitz, Germany, and it is well known for its amazing light and laser shows, sumptuous décor, art installations, together with a stunning lineup.
VooV organizers are fully committed to amaze and surprise its visitors every edition, turning this into one of the most iconic psytrance events in history.
VooV Experience is much more than just a psytrance music festival, but don’t be fooled; music is still the main attraction of this event. VooV has a massive dancefloor that hosts a respected (and amazing!) international lineup composed of all the great names on the scene. And if that wasn’t enough, after the shows, the music never stops, creating a seemingly endless cycle of show – after-party – show – after-party.
Combine this with the most amazing laser and light shows you will ever see, capable of creating imaginary multidimensional sceneries and transport you to a surreal world of light and color
Don’t be afraid – if you feel like your mind and body need to wind down, you can participate in one of the many workshops and yoga sessions happening during the festival.
VooV Experience is one of the oldest psytrance festivals around. Of course, the festival itself has gone through a few transformations since its very first edition. It all started as a small party with about 100 people, put together by a group of friends who were coming back from Goa in 1991.
The festival was known by VuuV Experience for many years, and since its inception have changed ownership and location, but never forgot its essence. (it changed its name to VooV in 2016).
Today, VooV has grown to be not only one of the oldest but also one of the more “real” psytrance events in the world.
