Armin van Buuren, Afrojack and W&W are Mainstage headliners – Global Trance star Paul van Dyk and Techno heavyweight Richie Hawtin appear at PAROOKAVILLE for
the first time

This year’s first few rays of sunshine are whetting everyone’s appetite for the festival summer, and that’s only going to increase with the announcement of the latest round of top artists for PAROOKAVILLE 2019. When Germany’s biggest and craziest festival city opens its gates for the fifth time at Weeze Airport this coming June 19th to 21st, over 200 DJs are set to hit the festival’s ten stages!

The Mainstage stays in its former location but will feature a brand new design this year to present the combined dance power of headliners Armin van Buuren, Afrojack and W&W, all from the Netherlands. These guys are some of the most popular DJs in the world and with the citizens of PAROOKAVILLE. The eccentric Swedish DJ Salvatore Ganacci, whose insane performances have skyrocketed his acclaim within the last year, will be on hand for the second year in a row for a Mainstage performance at this year’s Madness City.

On the 1LIVE pres. Lost Frequencies & Friends Stage the empathetic Belgian will be supported by artists including Jonas Blue. With over 25 billion streams, Jonas is currently one of the world’s most successful artists. Other guests on this stage include Hugel, whose “Bella Ciao” remix was THE summer hit of 2018 and was accordingly awarded with DoublePlatinum status.


PAROOKAVILLE presents every facet of electronic music

Just like in the previous years, as Germany’s largest Electronic Music festival PAROOKAVILLE will present all of this music’s genres, celebrating an elaborately curated programm full of established stars and fresh talent on ten stages for three days straight. In the Cloud Factory on Sunday AWAKE is assembling the world’s Trance elite for the first time together on a single stage. So the news that Paul van Dyk, one of the world’s most renowned and successful DJs will make his debut PAROOKAVILLE appearance as headliner is all the more reason to celebrate. Born in East Berlin, Paul has risen to become of the leading figureheads of electronic music in Germany over the course of his extremely successful 25 year career.

But first, on Saturday the Cloud Factory will become a Mecca for Techno fans. Hosted once again by Cocoon, Richie Hawtin, one of the most influential Techno producers in the world today will also make his debut appearance at Parookaville. With his innumerable productions, collaborations and remixes – often under his pseudonym Plastikman – along with his technically and musically trailblazing sets treading the tightrope between Acid House and Straight Techno, Britain’s Richie Hawtin is one of the absolute “Must Sees” of the Techno scene.Loyal Parookaville residents Lost Identity have also enjoyed a mercurial ride upwards. Following gigs at Tomorrowland and in Asia, this summer they will debut as stage hosts at PAROOKAVILLE. With Lost Identity & Friends these lads from Weeze will assemble their buddies from a wide range of genres for a night of madness in the Wacky Shack.

Effective immediately, the best Parookaville live sets available in restream. The re-streaming from last year’s festival is set to return afresh this year on the PAROOKAVILLE YouTube channel. At regular intervals the best sets from the last two years will also be available once again in top visual and sound quality. Having already started things off, Steve Aoki also returns this summer to Weeze as a Mainstage headliner once again.
