Disneyland announced just a few months ago that it would in fact hold an EDM festival at their Paris location. The line up of artists scheduled to perform include: Steve Aoki, Nervo, Michael Calfan and Richard Orlinski. Obviously the reactions were a bit mixed but overall excitement ensued. Since the event is taking place tomorrow (July 8th) the founders of the festival decided to pull back the curtain on the event a little more with a full interview with Music Weekly.
What we learned on plans for years to come
“We hope to develop a longer festival, maybe held over two days because the intention is to encourage people attending the show to stay over at the resort,” said Aflalo. “We have already sold a lot of hotel packages for this year. Normally, when Disneyland doesn’t have an event, the average time before booking a visit is just two to three days before the weekend. For this event, they have sold much more quickly.”
How Many People Will Attend?
“The target is between 8,000 to 10,000 people and I know that as of a couple of months ago they'd already reached half of the target. Twenty per cent tickets of the tickets have been sold within the UK,and 60% in France, with the rest from Italy and around Europe.”
What Were The Artist's Response?
“The feedback we received from DJs when we were enquiring about availabilities was that it would be a dream for them to play at Disneyland. In terms of production, there will be mapping on the Tower Of Terror and animations, it will be incredible. The new generation does not only want to dance, but have a full and complete journey of entertainment.”
As soon as we hear how the event goes over in Paris we will let you know and bring you all relevant information. Let's all try to make it to Disneyland Paris' ‘Electroland' 2018!
