Record-breaking Djakarta Warehouse Project drops video of Asia’s biggest “Mannequin Challenge”.
Over two days in December, 90,000 music fans – 27,000 of whom were from overseas – descended on Jakarta’s JExpo Centre to celebrate life, culture and the beats that unite them under the masterful wizardry of Carl Cox, Martin Garrix, Hardwell, Zedd, W&W, DJ Snake, GTA, Hot Since 82 and more.
That was, until Yves V took to the main stage… to the sound of complete and utter silence.
Fortunately it wasn’t the fault of the sound technicians, or an adverse reaction to the talented Belgian. Incredibly, over 40,000 festival-goers stood absolutely stock still as Djakarta Warehouse Project 2016 put a cap on the year’s biggest trend by producing the largest “Mannequin Challenge” in Asia.
No mean feat shutting that many people up, Yves V and the Ismaya Live crew managed it for precisely 19 seconds before the massive crowd erupted to the sounds of Rae Sremmurd’s ‘Black Beatles’ ft. Gucci Mane. Unsurprisingly the video is already causing mass tag-hysteria on Facebook, as those who were there check to see if they made the final cut.
