For the first time in history, a party will take place in zero gravity, headlined by some of the biggest DJs in the world. Dubbed ‘The World’s Smallest Nightclub’ WORLD CLUB DOME Zero Gravity will launch on February 7, 2018 in cooperation with FRAPORT – Frankfurt Airport.
The only way to win a ticket on board the flight is to send a 20 second video application to www.wcdzerogravity.com, explaining why you deserve to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. With only two winners (one male and one female) to be selected from each continent, including an additional two winners each from Germany and India, WORLD CLUB DOME Zero Gravity is one of the most exclusive, trailblazing events in electronic music history.
The specially converted A310 aircraft, used by the European Space Agency (ESA) for astronaut training flights, will take off from Frankfurt Airport on February 7. The flight will last a total of 90 minutes, with headliners Armin Van Buuren, Steve Aoki and W&W providing the soundtrack to one of the most unique party experiences ever conceived. Partygoers and DJs will float together in weightlessness – an experience usually reserved for astronauts.
To be considered, entrants must share their 20-second application on social media with the hash tag #wcdZeroGravity as well as at the official competition site here. The first phase of finalists will be announced January 12, with the WORLD CLUB DOME jury choosing the Top 20 people (10 male and 10 female) from each continent. The final two winners from each continent will then be decided by an online vote, combined with a jury, and will be announced on January 19.
WORLD CLUB DOME Zero Gravity is yet another demonstration of how BigCityBeats are continually moving the clubbing scene forward with original and pioneering concepts. Repeatedly breaking down the boundaries of conventional clubbing, the WORLD CLUB DOME concept was founded five years ago in Frankfurt. The event has become one of the biggest of its kind in Germany, dubbed the ‘biggest club in the world’ covering over 700,000m² with 20 gigantic stage designs, 200 spectacular headliners and the largest laser show on the continent, combining the glamour of a club with the open-air feeling of a festival.
Since its inception, the WORLD CLUB DOME concept has expanded to lead a 2000-capacity WORLD CLUB CRUISE around Europe and WORLD CLUB DOME Korea, which attracted 100,000 revelers in 2017. As part of its series of boundary pushing events WORLD CLUB DOME also launched the ICE Club-Train, the “fastest club in the world” in 2015, a high-speed train travelling at 320km/h equipped with international DJs and partygoers. In 2015, WCD also announced the Club-Jet, the “highest club in the world” taking partygoers clubbing in a Boeing 747 sound tracked by some of the top DJs in the world. In total, WORLD CLUB DOME attracted 330,000 people in 2017 across all events, and looks to expand further in 2018, starting with WCD Zero Gravity.
