We Love Techno Switzerland
Get ready for a new journey…
That night, the finest that the scene has to offer joins to a few hours of infinity. However, on December 8th of the currently year around the evening, any labeling becomes irrelevant: Old techno legends and young new talents of the techno scene will stand side by side behind the turntables and make the audience dance with great new beats, synthesizer sounds and row bass lines. Be part of this unforgettable evening and share the spirit.
WE LOVE TECHNO Switzerland vereinigt das Feinste, was die Szene zu bieten hat, zu ein paar Stunden Unendlichkeit. In der Nacht des 28. September 2019 jedoch, wird jegliche Etikettierung irrelevant: Urgesteine und junge Grössen der Technoszene werden Seite an Seite hinter den Plattentellern stehen und das Publikum mit dunklen, harten Beats zum Raven bringen.
X-TRA’s history dates back to 1931 when the Limmathaus opened after about 18 months of construction. Built in the style of Neues Bauen (New Building), from which the Bauhaus movement emerged, the Limmathaus was one of the city’s most modern buildings at that time. It was designed by the Swiss architect Karl Egender who made his mark on Zurich until his death in 1969. Among his many projects were the Arts and Crafts School and the Hallenstadion.
The visit by the boxing legend Muhammad Ali in 1971 was indeed legendary. He trained at the Limmathaus the day before his match at the Hallenstadion, his one and only appearance in Switzerland (picture by Eric Bachmann). More than just a sports venue, the Limmathaus is above all a cultural hub. It has been the home of X-TRA Production AG Since 1997. The company arose out of the X-TRA Association for Cultural Communications whose purpose was to promote all kinds of amateur art.
Founded as an association on 11 November 1988, X-TRA opened its first venue ‘ART X-TRA’ in a former Coop supermarket in Zurich’s Witikon quarter. In the nineties, it took over the ‘Palais X-TRA’ at Hardturmstrasse 127 and gained a reputation as a successful organiser of parties and live music. Bands like Rammstein and Die Fantastischen 4 performed their first gigs outside Germany at Palais X-TRA. Since the company moved to its current venue at the Limmathaus, it has seen many superstars pass through its doors.
