BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME Las Vegas Edition postponed

After quite a few big music festivals that were supposed to take place again in the summer of 2021 have already been cancelled, the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME is now following suit - but with one crucial difference. Unlike other festivals that aren't scheduled to return until 2022, the Las Vegas edition of the popular open-air event is still set to take place this year - just not in early June, but in late summer. "Of course, after almost a year of lockdown, I would have liked to see a perspective for the cultural industry again, and planning security for all organizers. At the moment, however, planning can only be done on a four-week cycle," says Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats. Nevertheless, he is convinced that the major event can still be implemented this year.

"We are not cancelling the Las Vegas Edition for 2021," says Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats. "We are happy to announce that Deutsche Bank Park Frankfurt has given us a date for September 3, 4 and 5 for the biggest club in the world." Planning for an event in early June this year is too uncertain due to the current situation. "But there are still six months until the beginning of September - and a lot will happen in Germany in those months. By then we may have achieved herd immunity," says Breiter. So there is justified confidence in implementing the biggest club in the world in September 2021. "To be able to safely carry out a WORLD CLUB DOME as early as June is more than uncertain at this point. We need planning security and are therefore building on autumn 2021 with a sophisticated security and hygiene concept."

Because of the almost daily changing events, decisions and measures, such a large event as the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME cannot be planned at the last minute. After all, more than 300 artists are to perform on more than 25 stages on the three main days. This requires a manpower of several thousand people working in the background - all of which takes months of preparation. Turning the big event into a small one was out of the question for the Frankfurt-based family entrepreneur. "The BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME is a huge spectacle, you can't reduce that to a minimum. It's either business as usual - or not at all," was the CEO's statement.

For the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME Las Vegas Edition in September 2021, there will be a hygiene and safety concept, which will be meticulously worked out and coordinated with all health authorities and regulatory agencies. "We will include in our planning all security measures possible at that time to protect the visitors," said Breiter, who would not rule out on-site corona testing and electronic detection for negative infection.

"Even though our hands are currently tied by the pandemic," Breiter said, "we are not stagnating at BigCityBeats. In 2020, we showed that despite Corona, we're not going to let it get us down and the weekend feeling lives on with BigCityBeats." With over 10 livestreams, six BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME drive-in drive-in shows and three alternative events, including one at MyZeil in Frankfurt am Main with a DJ booth on the longest escalator in Europe, BigCityBeats continued to inspire fans even in difficult times. The BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME Night of Light Edition on 22.06.2020 united party livestream and admonishing appeal of the event industry to politics.

So much should be mentioned already: BigCityBeats still has many big projects in the pipeline. Not only here in Frankfurt, but also in space. Here, astronaut Matthias Maurer will take the "Space Symphony" composed by Breiter to the International Space Station ISS in autumn 2021. And that should be just a small taste of what could come after the pandemic...
