ILOVETECHNO: The event is something special (10.11.12). What is your favorite number (or number sequence) and why? Is it superstition?
Erol Alkan:  "I'm very superstitiuos, and I didn't realise the date until you pointed it out. My favourite number is 13, as it's believed to be unlucky for most people, but it also means that it can be lucky for others."

ILOVETECHNO: What do you do before you go on stage ?
Erol Alkan:  "Prepare myself a drink, may sure I know how long I need to play, check I haven't lost my headphones.."

ILOVETECHNO: What are you doing at I Love Techno this year?
Erol Alkan: "Djing"

ILOVETECHNO: Who else are you looking forward to seeing at I Love Techno?

ILOVETECHNO: What is your favourite techno track of all time?

ILOVETECHNO: What do you love about the I Love Techno festival? How does it compare to other festivals?
