ONE of techno music’s most respected and enduring artists and DJs, Monica Kruse’s commitment and innate musical connection has kept her centre stage in the international festival and record label scene for the last 25 years.

From trailblazing the dawn of German dance culture in the early 90’s, organising events in abandoned Munich WWII bomb shelters, to launching her revered Terminal M label in 2000, right through to her DJing schedule, this year will see her play across Awakenings, Tomorrowland, Time Warp, Hyte Ibiza, Circle, Sonus and beyond – Monika stands as one of Europe’s leading techno pioneers.
