The long anticipated return of Amsterdam's superclub KREMLIN is finally here. On the 29th and 30th of April, KREMLIN traditionally hosts its landmark event called 2 DAYS OF KAOS.

On the 30th of April, KREMLIN exclusively presents two of the world's finest underground techno names, namely contemporary music icon and superstar DJ MAURO PICOTTO [] as well as Detroit techno-legend KEVIN SAUNDERSON.

This night will be part of Mauro Picotto's MEGANITE tour. MEGANITE is a new concept in electronic dance music build around Mauro Picotto, bringing the clubbers the most upfront, quality packed line-ups. MEGANITE will only visit the very best clubs in the world, including Space (Miami), Ministry of Sound (London), Arc (NYC), Orbit (Peru) and of course Amsterdam's superclub KREMLIN.

On this night, Mauro Picotto will play an exclusive three hours set. For this MEGANITE experience, we have also invited Detroit techno-wizard Kevin "Reese" Saunderson, who will play alongside Mauro Picotto. Kevin Saunderson's biggest achievement to date and his most commercially recognized project, Inner City, is often referred to as one of the World's most important dance-acts ever.

It was under the Inner City moniker that Kevin Saunderson produced classics like "Big Fun" and "Good Life". "So come live the Good Life and experience some Big Fun, spun by the one who invented it in the first place." Warming up for Kevin Saunderson will be the extremely talented EDWIN BAZEN [MAW], who's a resident at the highly popular MAW techno parties in Rotterdam, where he has shared the decks with heroes like Dave Clarke, Green Velvet, Ben Sims, Billy Nasty, Chris Liebing, and many others.

DJ ASTRID will be the closing act of 2 DAYS OF KAOS. Having shared the decks with Sven Väth and Jeff Mills in the past as well as with many of today's progressive/trance superstar DJ's, this energetic lady will definitely stand out on her own among her male equivalents in area one.

Meanwhile, area two will be the domain of LUCIEN FOORT [Slice], who will perform solo for six hours non-stop. Live percussion and lots of entertainment will support him during this marathon set. On the second day of kaos, the lounge area will see the likes of VICTOR CORAL [Rush], DWIN [Las Palmas] and BRAM VAN DER LOO [EVE]. In other words, the second day of kaos promises to be yet another meganite!
