Fast becoming one of the biggest names in techno, Antwerp-born Amelie Lens’ ascension to festival main stages and dancefloor destruction worldwide has been meteoric. Having only started developing an interest in music as a teenager (mostly listening to Nine Inch Nails and Underworld) Amelie’s earliest clubbing experiences were seeing Boys Noize and Ellen Allien around the age of 15. After turning 16, she went to one of Europe’s biggest festivals, Dour, and the experience was “life-changing”.
In 2018, Amelie spent more time in studio, so she could focus on her own productions. That year there was a collaborative EP with Regal on his label Involve, and a joint EP with Farrago (as well as a remix from Kobosil) on her own label LENSKE… all whilst working to a 15-gigs-per-month schedule! Recently she performed at Awakenings Festival in Amsterdam, without an audience and the show was streamed live. Today she’s one of the most in-demand DJ/producers in the world and she will grace EXIT festival’s monumental mts Dance Arena this summer!
