Musical club homage to “50 years moon landing”
Great events cast their shadows: On 7.On 8 and 9 June 2019, the metropolis on the Main River, Frankfurt, will once again be offering all fans of electronic club music the party of the year in the world's largest club. In and around the Commerzbank Arena, the partying is going on for three days over an area of 700,000 square metres - and all this with particularly high-calibre guests. Nobody could have guessed how big the WORLD CLUB DOME would become when it started as a one-day event with 25,000 visitors. Meanwhile about 200,000 guests from more than 60 nations come to Frankfurt on three days to celebrate together peacefully and happily...
Every new issue will of course be even more spectacular and better than the year before. And this is also the case in 2019, when the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME will have the motto “Space Edition” - a venerable club homage to ”50 years of moon landing”. The Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt is transformed into a huge space shuttle - with a replica Ariane rocket on the main stage in front of around 50,000 guests.
>On the three days of the event over 230 acts from all over the world will play - and from all areas of electronic club music: from EDM to Trance to Trap - from Hip-Hop to Hardstyle to Electro-Pop - from Goa to Minimal to House. On more than 25 stages, the greats of the club scene show how they captivate and inspire the masses with their music. Among them are absolute superstar DJs like trance pioneer Armin van Buuren from the Netherlands, hit machine David Guetta from France, the shooting star from the underground: HUGEL („Bella Ciao”), and Frankfurt techno legend Sven Väth. Chart-high-flyer Jason Derulo from the USA, who has sold almost 60 million records worldwide, is also there and plays a live concert. Out in the open! Just like the band Clean Bandit, whose hit „Rockabye” has been streamed more than two billion times on YouTube and is playing up and down the radio. In addition, Steve Aoki, probably the most famous DJ cake thrower in the world, presents a project initiated by BigCityBeats: a cooperation with hip-hop veteran Timbaland. An exclusive world premiere!
Another highlight: The VIP Summer Residence - a high-class area on the large open-air grounds at the edge of the WCD Pool Sessions main stage - will be created as part of the WCD Pool Sessions. This is where the celebrities arrive after they landed on the red carpet by BigCityBeats helicopter, were chauffeured there by Rolls Royce, Lamborghini or McLaren, then “accompanied“ by flamethrowers and torches on the feudal Walk of Fame strolled, autographed, made a few Selfies with fans and at the VIP check-in was venerably received by the specially engaged security. The stars from Show & Entertainment, Politics & Economy and Culture & Entertainment can not only enjoy outdoor champagne and other delicacies and immerse themselves in the fabulous world of Food & Drinks & Music, but also indoors - in the VIP areas of the Commerzbank Arena, with a perfect view of the main days.
The Indoor Mainstage, which offers space for around 50,000 guests, is the heart of the festival. A huge stage is created - the replica of the Ariane rocket. In addition: one of the largest laser shows in Europe. 2,000 moving lights, hundreds of flamethrowers, stroboscopes and a total of almost 1,500 square metres of LED surfaces provide a powerful visual accompaniment to the sound of the world's biggest and most successful DJs - using a 1.8 million watt stereo system.
The clubbers can look forward to a groundbreaking and unprecedented opening and closing show. On Friday, June 7, 2019, the main stage with the replica of the Ariane rocket on stage will become “spaceship into Past, Present & Future“. Together with the two ESA astronauts Matthias Maurer and André Kuipers, the guests experience a journey back in time - with the top 10 events in space history. While one also depicts and stages the present, one also looks into the future. It is narrated with powerful images and sound, framed by a sensational light, laser and sound show.
From the stars of outer space to the stars of the music circus: MTV European Music Awards winner Marshmello, for example, will play the crowning finale on Friday. A few hours earlier the BigCityBeats resident DJ Le Shuuk was on the big stage. The Stuttgart DJ, who set a worldwide record in March by being the first DJ ever to premiere his new single in weightlessness at BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME Zero Gravity. The absolute highlight on Saturday will be the performance of the American Steve Aoki, who together with hip-hop legend Timbaland will present the joint project that will make headlines around the world. Even the trumpeting DJ from Australia - Timmy Trumpet - doesn't miss the chance to be there. His trademark: During the performance he combines his DJ skills with trumpet interludes. Internationally known is also Robin Schulz, who produced the first hit in his 45 square meter small apartment - the remix to “Waves“ - before the beginning of his worldwide career. Chart producer and DJ superstar David Guetta is also there, whose productions are constantly pushing the top of the international charts. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, probably the hottest DJ duo in the world, expand the circle of global players.
NEW IN 2019: THE MAINSTAGE OUTDOOR
The Skyline Stage, in summer 2018: It burst at the seams. Too little space to dance. Ergo has more legroom on a new floor this year. More space for an even more bombastic line-up. Up to 15.000 party guests celebrate to acts like Jason Derulo, Clean Bandit, HUGEL and Lost Frequencies. A spectacular stage show underlines the sound that internationally renowned bands and top acts from all areas of club music present. No matter if Electro or Trap - no matter if Hip-Hop or Future Bass - no matter if Deep House, Dubstep or Dancepop - at Mainstage Outdoor there are no genre boundaries. Sam Feldt - who is considered the inventor of the so-called Tropical House and celebrated his breakthrough with the catchy tune “Show Me Love“ - will also be there. Also the German veterans of Tech House and Deep House - Disturbed but GeiL - must not be missing. Future House, for example, is represented by chart high-flyer Zonderling, while the tour support act of David Guetta - LOVRA - brings the 80s and 90s into the new millennium with its stylistically revised sound. But rap has also always been part of club music. And so the Berlin rapper Capital Bra is warmly welcomed. It's up to him to set the record for twelve number 1 hits in the German charts within one year.
These are just a few of the highlights that await you on three days of BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME. All further information and the complete line-up can be found here: www.worldclubdome.com
