BigCityBeats In Space With The European Space Agency
“What happens when you combine science with entertainment?” asks Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats and founder of WORLD CLUB DOME, who had the vision to connect the magic of space and the magic of dance music. “Dance music connects nations. The guiding principles of this community are freedom, love and tolerance. It is a generation of cosmopolitan people. We want to bring the fascination of space travel to a new young audience. We want to teach the science of space travel in an easy-to-understand way. Together looking into the future, into a new dimension – what better way is there to do this than combine space travel and one of the most popular music styles in the world?“
The dance music community of BigCityBeats has more than half a million followers. With the World Club Dome Zero Gravity club project this year, Bernd Breiter already proved that science and entertainment can be brought together in a way that is mutually beneficial. More than a billion media impressions were generated worldwide during the 2018 Zero Gravity event where the first-ever club was built into weightlessness, which saw DJs Steve Aoki and W&W DJ in zero gravity on a specially converted A310 aircraft used to train astronauts. The Zero-G flight took parabolic maneuvers achieving more than 5 minutes of weightlessness, dropping 50 lucky people and the star DJs into a Zero-Gravity environment.
“It will be interesting to see what the year 2019 has to offer… because there will be so much more than just messages from space. Along with the announcement of the “Space Edition” theme for the flagship 2019 edition of the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME in Frankfurt next year, people can expect the ESA & BigCityBeats collaboration to test the boundaries of what’s possible with a dance music event.” – Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats.
