On June 3, after a break of three years, the World Club Dome will begin again at Waldstadion in Frankfurt. What can fans expect at the three-day festival?

Frankfurt – This time Elvis will also be present at the World Club Dome at Waldstadion in Frankfurt. Well, not the real King, of course, but an Elvis lookalike would perform wedding ceremonies in specially constructed wedding chapels not far from the stadium. “Many couples are already signed up, one couple is getting married a few days early, they want to get the big show at the World Club Dome and are getting married here again for fun,” Bernd Braiter says on Monday afternoon (May 30) and Laugh. Of course they were all fun weddings.

The 51-year-old is the organizer of the three-day Frankfurt music festival, to which fans travel to his hometown from all over the world, to see DJ greats from the world of electronic music like David Guetta, DJs from the major charts like Robin Schulz, But also rappers like Haftsperre or rapper Juju live from Friday (June 3) to Sunday (June 5).

World Club Dome 2022 in Frankfurt: expected to reach 60,000 visitors per day

Because, as Britter emphasizes, the Big City Beats World Club Dome has long been more than just an electronic music festival, but unites different musical genres – all under one roof. Scooter and Haftsperre perform on the hip-hop scene – but not together. Because the association doesn’t go so far that the arrest warrant remixes “Shabus knows who Papo” into the Scooter’s megaphone shouting “How fishy.” Breiter expects Frankfurt to have 60,000 visitors on the day of the festival. There are 250 artists. Corona measures are no longer an issue, the area is spacious, and the security staff makes sure that there are no more people allowed to dance in front of the platforms.

On Mondays, Breiter rides between forklifts and stage construction and proudly shows who will perform on the 25 stages set up from Waldstadion to Stadionbad. A fallen and tattered “Las Vegas” sign in front of the Zombie Theater can be seen in the lawns in front of the stadium. This is where the “dark side,” i.e., really hard electric music, comes into play, says Brighter. A new area of ​​700,000 square meters will be created for three days – or rather, Las Vegas will move to Europe for three days. The slogan this time is Las Vegas. That’s why Elvis.
