This coming July 22nd to 24th brings the sixth edition of Germany’s largest Electronic Music Festival to Weeze Airport with an unprecedented bandwidth of global stars and musical best-kept secrets. With the two new headliners Alan Walker and W&W, the world premiere of the Back2Back performance by Yellow Claw x Brennan Heart and more than 100 additional new acts, this is the biggest PAROOKAVILLE artist announcement of the year.
PAROOKAVILLE’s itinerary has been a central key to the success of this beloved festival since it began. In the extraordinarily unique PAROOKAVILLE cityscape, the festival’s Citizens once again have the opportunity to experience over 300 different acts from every electronic music genre on more than 10 stages, each perfectly designed to accommodate the sound. In front of the gigantic Mainstage, equipped with fireworks and a laser and LED show, there’s space for up to 35,000 Citizens at once.
And it’s here that British-Norwegian DJ and producer Alan Walker will perform as the headliner on the festival Sunday. His 2015 mega-hit “Faded” catapulted Alan to the top of the charts in over 15 different countries. With a jaw-dropping 26 million monthly listeners on Spotify and more than one billion streams of the single “Faded”, Alan Walker is one of the biggest DJs in the world. In July, all of PAROOKAVILLE’s Citizens will finally have the
chance again to experience Alan Walker live in the City of Dreams.
With W&W, the Saturday sees the return of two more genuine DJ superstars to PAROOKAVILLE. The two Dutchmen Willem and Ward are known above all for using their unique sound comprised of Trance, Electro and Progressive House to create iconic live shows. Their crowd control sandstorm at PAROOKAVILLE 2018 remains unforgotten and unforgettable. This year they return on Saturday as the Mainstage headliner, while their label Rave Culture will host the Desert Valley Stage at the Pre-Party on the preceding Thursday.
Friday is also set to welcome a major world premiere on the Mainstage with the exclusive Back2Back performance of the two top electronic acts Yellow Claw x Brennan Heart! They may indeed come from different musical genres, but they’re united by their long friendship and loyal support of PAROOKAVILLE. The City of Dreams is the perfect location for Mr. I Am Hardstyle Brennan Heart and the boys from Yellow Claw, celebrated for their Trap, Hip-Hop and Electro House Beats, to perform together for the first time.
Sunday at Bill’s Factory, PAROOKAVILLE’s iconic second open-air stage, truly brings the broad musical spectrum of the festival’s programme into focus. The absolutely loony lads from Electric Callboy are set to raise the Citizens’ temperature with their eardrum-piercing Metalbeats on the festival’s third day. Their current “Hypa Hypa European Tour” is already completely sold-out. Recently their fans collected over 100,000 signatures for a petition to bring the boys to ESC in Turin. While that didn’t work out in the end, their show at PAROOKAVILLE on the festival Sunday is guaranteed.
More exciting new announcements for the Gerne Stages
Öwnboss and DJ Sevek are presently on a trajectory to have THE 2022 festival hymn with their song “Move Your Body”. Averaging 600,000 Spotify streams per day and having already garnered over 72 million streams, the current mega-hit by these two Brazilian DJs is of course perfect for a power workout, but it’s also ideal to dance-till-you-drop on the Sunday in front of the Time Lab Stage. Get hyped up with Öwnboss! Australian DJ Luude’s new reworking of the 80s classic “Down Under“ by Men At Work has already given him a top hit this year. Joining forces with guest-of-honour and the song’s original singer Colin Hay, Luude has wrapped the song in a big-phat Drum’n‘ Bass package, transforming the number into a modern summer hit with a distinct retro vibe.
The festival Sunday offers the City of Dreams’ Citizens the chance at the Time Lab to celebrate lunacy, love and pure joy to the soundtrack of his Trap and Drum’n‘Bass sounds. For Hugel, the Bacardí Stage is the place to be on Thursday! Over the last few years the French DJ and producer has racked up a variety of big hits, including “WTF” (feat. Amber Van Day) and the Platinum-winning remix of “Bella Ciao” from 2018. Among his releases this year is the dance single “Castle” in conjunction with Alle Farben and FAST BOY, yet another milestone for PAROOKAVILLE’s Citizens to celebrate in July.
The line-up of the insanely popular Brainwash-Stage and special acts for the other stages will also be announced soon!
