The 4 cross-quarter days fall between equinoxes and solstices.Halloween is the spookiest one – derived from a sacred festival of ancient Celts and Druids – coming as days grow short and nights long in the Northern Hemisphere.There is no better place to celebrate New Year than at our notorious Gashouder! In honor of this milestone we're doing something special.From December 30 to January 1 we'll be throwing 4 New Years Specials with killer line-ups. For the first time in Awakenings history we'll throw a day time event in the Gashouder! 20 years of Awakenings means 20 years of amazing techno moments! Note: Save 20% (€ 10,-) if you buy the book together with a ticket for one of our events. The second event on December 31 will sell out any moment from now. Want to join Adam Beyer and many others on our very last techno night of the year? Five nights completely sold-out, with the best techno DJ's in the world and an amazing crowd.
For us in the Northern Hemisphere, Halloween is the darkest of the cross-quarter days, coming at a time of year when the days are growing shorter.
But, then, the Julian calendar was about one week out of step with the seasons.
Had the Gregorian calendar been in use back then, the date of the cross-quarter day celebration would have been November 7.
