In honor of Tresor’s 25 year jubilee celebrations the institution will be hosting their first ever festival. This year of celebrations includes a dedicated event for the club’s jubilee, the Tresor 25 Years festival, a series of international showcases, the record label’s anniversary and a monumental compilation completing Tresor Records’ release schedule.
The year-long program culminates with a bang on July 21-22-23, after milestone events in Detroit, London, Paris, Sydney and more.. Tresor expands beyond the vault and into the cavernous Kraftwerk hall for three nights of music bringing together some of the most prominent names who contributed to the elevation of the Berlin institution.
Staying faithful to its origins, the festival presents an all-star program of Detroit originators –Robert Hood, Daniel Bell, premiering his new DBX live show in Berlin along with John Tejada, Gerald Donald presenting Arpanet and Blake Baxter.
Adding to the list is a selection of the most influential figures of the club and label’s history. Starting with live performances by Surgeon, Chain Reaction fixture Vainqueur, as well as long-time collaborators regis and James Ruskin who come together for a rare o/v/r show. For the occasion, Berlin correspondants DJ Pete and Sleeparchive also present a special TR-101 performance. Guitarist Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten), Achim Färber and Zeitblom also bring Automat to the Tresor 25 Years stage. DJ sets come from Moritz Von Oswald, Juan Atkins, Regis, Sterac, Pacou, Fumiya Tanaka, Dj Stingray and many many more. Ellen Allien and Tanith also relaunch Club The Rest for one night only.

The label extols its own storied 25 year existence with a weighty compilation to be uncovered in October.
The Tresor cellar, with its dance oor pressed between bank safes, the unique sound and the dense fog, became a symbol of the successful reunifcation of the youth of two formerly separated German states, who danced and celebrated here together from the club’s inception. DJs and artists from Detroit were the main inspiration for the sound of the vault – the now famous Berlin-Detroit connection resulted in a very special friendship between the two cities. As a club and record label, Tresor had already become a worldwide magnet and advertisement for the city of Berlin.
Over the past 25 years Tresor has created many historic moments in the musical and party history of the city. From Jeff Mills’ rst sets on three turntables, to the grandiose Tresor Park parties, to various chapters of the Loveparade with Sven Väth in the 90s and since then countless generation-spanning parties, that represented for their visitors the highlights of their personal clubbing experiences. The history of the club was always eventful and not without complications. From the temporary closure by the authorities in the early years, to several raids, all the way to the closure and demolition of the old location in 2005, the years of wandering in exile and the resurrection in the new location Kraftwerk Berlin.
