Artist Announcement Week #6 simultaneously marks the announcement of the final
PAROOKAVILLE 2022 lineup. 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
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. Our 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.
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
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.
And don’t forget, our 8-person Artist Department, hard at work for the last fourteen
months putting together this year’s line-up, still has a few enticing secrets up its sleeve.
The lineup of the insanely popular Brainwash-Stage and special acts for the other stages
will also be announced soon.
