Several clubs in Germany hosted “drive-in raves” last week as a way of circumventing lockdown restrictions.
On 30th April at Düsseldorf’s drive-in cinema, World Club Dome, inspired by an idea by BigCityBeats, hosted two drive-in parties with 1000 guests at each. In an area the size of two football fields, 500 cars with a driver and one passenger allowed in each arrived to catch sets from DJs Plastik Funk and Le Shuuk, who played in front of “the world’s largest hydraulic screen” and accompanied by CO2 and fire cannons and a laser show. You can watch the full set here.
Car windows had to stay shut during the event, while the music was transmitted through their radios. World Club Dome will return to Düsseldorf’s drive-in cinema three more times in the next few weeks, with events featuring Alle Farben (20th May), Gestört aber GeiL & Le Shuuk (30th May) and Mausio & Lari Luke (10th June) lined up.
From 30th April to 2nd of May, the car park of Club Index in Schüttorf hosted three similar parties, where 250 cars with up to two people in each were treated to sets from the likes of Dutch DJ Devin Wild, ICE and David Puentez. Check out a clip from Devin Wild’s set below.
