BigCityBeats, the company behind the WORLD CLUB DOME festival, has announced a new collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) for 2019, combining the universal, connecting and boundless nature of electronic music and space travel. Last year the mission with ESA for the WORLD CLUB DOME Zero Gravity Event, where the first club was built in weightlessness, was so successful that the cooperation will reach even greater heights next year - another Zero-G event among many other things that combine electronic music and space travel like never before.

The astronaut and current commander of the International Space Station (ISS), Alexander Gerst, has sent the world's first message from space to the electronic dance community of BigCityBeats. His message was, among other things, a response to the world-famous star DJs Armin van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Steve Aoki and Timmy Trumpet, who sent greetings to the ISS and enthusiastically spoke of the vision and cooperation between the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME and the European Space Agency (ESA) and their zero gravity mission.

ESA Astronaut and ISS Commander Alexander Gerst: „I am a big fan of electronic music and welcome all new space fans. It's great to see how the best DJs in the world support space with their messages and make us see the future in a visionary spirit. Many thanks for the cooperation and organization of this inspiring event. It is my dream that one day every person will be able to see our wonderful planet from outer space. (Watch full video here)

ESA astronaut Frank de Winne (Head of ESA's European Astronaut Centre) says about the WCD-&-ESA cooperation: „I would like to thank all the top DJs and WORLD CLUB DOME for addressing such a large community with the message of space. Thank you very much. And I would like to welcome all new space fans and of course the entire electronic music community. Goodbye in space!“

„What happens if you combine science with entertainment?“, asks Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats and founder of the WORLD CLUB DOME, who had the vision of combining the magic of space with the magic of electronic music. “Club music connects nations. The guidelines of this community are freedom, love and tolerance. It's a cosmopolitan generation. We want to bring the fascination of space travel to a young audience and convey the science of space travel in an easily understandable way. Looking into the future together, into a new dimension - how can we do this better than combining space travel and one of the most popular music styles in the world?“

The club music community of BigCityBeats has more than half a million followers. With this year's WORLD CLUB DOME zero gravity project, Bernd Breiter has already proven that science and entertainment can be combined in a way that is mutually beneficial. Over one billion media contacts were made worldwide during the 2018 Zero Gravity Event, where the first club was built in weightlessness and the DJs Steve Aoki and W&W played in weightlessness in an Airbus A310 specially converted for astronaut training. The Zero-G flight with parabolic maneuvers reached more than 5 minutes of weightlessness and dropped 50 happy people and the Star DJs into a Zero-Gravity-environment. 

„I am curious what the year 2019 has to offer... because there will be more than just messages from space. Besides the announcement of the “Space Edition” motto for the flagship edition 2019 of the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME in Frankfurt next year, the community will experience how the ESA & BigCityBeats cooperation tests the limits of what is possible with an electronic music event.“ - Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats.
