Echelon Open Air & Indoor Festival is a techno and house music festival in Bad Aibling. Year upon year, the world’s most prized DJ’s and producers are invited to Ehemalige US Kaserne, welcomed by hoards of grateful techno enthusiasts.

Set in an abandoned army base surrounded by futuristic radomes and the beautiful Bavarian alps, Echelon Openair brings together the finest representatives of local and international techno and electronic music scene, for the largest electronic open air festival in south Germany.

With five impressive and imposing stages all displaying variations of electronic music ranging from techno to house and beyond, what’s now become commonplace is the dizzying state-of-the-art visual and sonic production set amongst the location’s iconic radar domes with the Bavarian mountains as it’s backdrop, culminating in a rave of interstellar proportions.
