Martin Garrix

21:30 / 23:00

The most popular DJ in the world (for the second time in a row), closing the Olympic Wintergames and a new single with David Guetta. Martin Garrix does in a few months what very few do in a lifetime. You can do however the same thing as the EDM master in a short while and that is visit We Are Electric.


The Prodigy

21:45 / 23:15

Ask Siri for the best, hardest, banging beats. And Siri will answer: listen to The Prodigy. These are the godfathers of the big beat rave punk. Britain’s finest in beats.



22:00 / 23:15

Every venue can point to cracks in the building and tell you when it was that Justice performed and wrecked the place. These French guys blow you away with their relentless clash of different dance styles.


Mura Masa

20:00 / 21:00

In just a few years Mura Masa, coming from the British island Guernsey, has developed from a bedroom musician into a phenomenon on stage. Taking his wonky, electronic, hiphopdance to the festivals for a very big and grateful crowd. Mura Masa is musician to see.


Oliver Heldens

23:30 / 01:00

In Dutch the word Helden means heroes and one of our bigger heroes is Oliver Heldens. In just a few years he went from beinga young adolescent with a record deal at Spinnin’ Records to becoming the Heldeep Records founder, respected podcaster, dj, producer and performer. Taking future house to another level.


Paul Kalkbrenner

19:15 / 20:45

Guten Tag and how are you doing? Probably better when you hear Paul Kalkbrenner is performing at We Are Electric. The German techno mastermind did a massive Back To The Future Tour last year and is now gearing up for the European festival summer.


Andy C

17:00 / 18:30

Andy C is not only the British drum & bass legend, he is also the founder of the infamous Ram Records. And every producer dreams of releasing on Ram. The man himself is 25 years since the legendary Valley of the Shadows just as sharp, inventive and energetic as in the early days.


Dave Clarke

23:45 / 01:15

Finally there is a new album from one of the most interesting producers and dj’s in our time. The Desecration of Desire is the title of the new Dave Clarke album. It’s heavy, it’s dark, it’s everything what we have been waiting for.


De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig

18:00 / 19:00

Let’s not talk about their bodies, they are young at heart so no need to change the band’s name. Still going strong after all those years. Copied by many, surpassed by no one. De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig is still in a league of their own combining hiphop, dance and pure fun.



16:00 / 17:15

The Slovenian phenomenon Gramatik combines hiphop with low temperatures aka cool music. The man is productive as hell. He just might produce another album in the time you read this.


Lost Frequencies

19:30 / 20:45

We’re sorry to announce that due to transportation issues Eric Prydz won’t be able to make it to WAE Weekender tonight. The replacement for this time slot will be Lost Frequencies.

We received the follow statement from his management:
“It is with deep regret that I have to announce that I am unable to play at We Are Electric Festival today. This is due to a mechanical breakdown of my tour bus in Italy today. Unfortunately it has been impossible to arrange alternative transport to get myself, crew, and production to the Netherlands in time for my performance. I am so sorry for any disappointment this will cause, but this is really beyond mine or the promoters control.”

A lot of people, including us, were looking forward to Eric Prydz. With 40+ other acts on 6 stages, including Martin Garrix, Netsky, Paul Kalkbrenner bttf & many more, we are sure that today will be as awesome as the past two days.


Martin Solveig

22:00 / 23:30

Rocking Music, Hello, Rejection, just a few of the many funky dancetunes by Martin Solveig. Each of them enormous hits. Solveig keeps pumping those great bass lines. He leaves you with just one option, dance mode: on.



17:45 / 18:45

Never before did so much attendants of a Dutch festival sing in French. But when MHD performed at the Lowlands Festival last summer everybody knew the words. What a party. The king of Afrotrap is learning a whole country to speak and sing French, the most fun way possible.



18:30 / 20:00

Mark Kinchen, aka MK, was there in house history at the beginning in his hometown Detroit. Working together with Kevin Saunderson he became a successful house producer. He drifted away from house becoming a force in the background in the studio for the biggest pop stars. The house virus never leaves so he returned to the scene and now he is on a roll again. A combination of experience, an up to date sound and being a true legend.



DJ Set
23:45 / 01:15

Modeselektor has become the massive festival favorite in the last years. Wether it’s as Modeselektor, Moderat or just a djset, they always leave a lasting memory. The German geniuses seem to perfectly pick up on the vibe and enhance it with the best tunes you never heard of. Magic.



20:30 / 22:00

All you have to do in music is count to 4. Four to the floor. And all we do is wait for Netsky to count to 4 after releasing three brilliant albums. We want 4, because this guy is making the best drum and bass we know. Counting down to see him perform.



DJ Set
00:00 / 01:00

From the north of the Netherlands to the rest of the world, Noisia is the dominant force behind drum and bass in Holland and far beyond. An inspiration for just about everyone. An institution of quality music, resourcefulness and experience.


Paul Kalkbrenner bttf

21:30 / 23:00

In addition to his Live Set on the Crash stage on Saturday, Berlin techno legend Paul Kalkbrenner will also headline his “Back To The Future” stage with a Back To The Future set!


19:30 / 20:30

With his fluorescent hair, fluorescent shirt and fluorescent beats Slushii is giving us the perfect sugar rush. The young American is mixing all kinds of music, from trap to future bass and progressive house. You just have to remember it’s damn fine music.
