There has never been anything like this before: A very special launch will take place at Frankfurt Airport on 07 February. Together with the astronauts of the European Space Agency (ESA), Jean-Francois Clervoy (Chairman of Novespace, a subsidiary of CNES) and Pedro Duque, twenty winners from all continents will experience an unforgettable party in weightlessness at the “Smallest Club in the World”. Conceived as a pre-party for the 3-day WORLD CLUB DOME main event in June, BigCityBeats, together with ESA and Fraport AG, has set up this ambitious project.
Tickets were not available to buy, but were drawn through an international competition. Twenty lucky winners, together with the international DJs Armin van Buuren, Steve Aoki, W&W and Le Shuuk, will now be able to celebrate the most unforgettable party of their lives for 90 minutes in a ZeroG Airbus (normally reserved for the scientific teams and the European Space Agency (ESA) for training). Astronaut Pedro Duque is sure that none of the participants will ever forget this flight: “I remember my first ZeroG flight during my astronaut training. The feeling of weightlessness is something unique. A parabolic flight is the only way to have the feeling of being in space without having to climb a rocket. For us astronauts, these flights are very important to familiarize ourselves with the situation in space.“
For Anke Giesen, Executive Board Member Operations at Fraport AG, this project is also a very special event: „We have been working in partnership with BigCityBeats and the WorldClubDome for several years and have already opened the city's most beautiful club - Dorian Gray 2.0 - in the terminal three times. We are looking forward to seeing the first club in Zero Gravity soon and to welcoming BigCityBeats and ESA at Frankfurt Airport.“
Together with ESA, Fraport Frankfurt and the city of Frankfurt, BigCityBeats has once again shown what is possible when the fascination of science meets the joy and fun of entertainment.
