In the heart of Frankfurt, Germany, World Club Dome is an annual 3-day festival. It is held at Commerzbank Arena, which transforms into a massive club, with outdoor stages and swimming pools. There are 6 stages catering to all of your music genre needs. You won’t experience something as legendary as this anywhere else in the world.

In case, this didn’t sound epic enough for you; the Road to World Club Dome is as fast-paced as you could imagine (literally). Their pre-parties include a train party travelling at 200mph (“fastest club in the world”) from Paris to the World Club Dome station, a weight-less zero gravity concert on a plane, and a street parade honouring the festival with over 1 million attendees. If you haven’t booked your flights by now, you will without a doubt regret missing this festival.

World Club Dome boasts headliners including Eric Prydz, Tiesto, and Axwell/\Ingrosso. An honourable mention of mine would be Black Coffee performing at the Pool Sessions stage. He crushed it recently here in Chicago at The Mid.
Eric Prydz’s sets are nothing short of legendary. The production and effort put into them are monumental. A gaze into one of his sets is a visual metaphor for the impossible becoming possible. He successfully creates an immersive journey melding together sounds and visuals.
Grammy-nominated, international DJ, Tiesto, is always an experience to see perform live. At 49 years old he is still a prominent artist in the electronic music scene. A master at his craft, he is capable of catering his sets to any crowd. Tiesto is constantly selling out shows and diligently producing fresh new music.
Following, their heart-warming surprise reunion performance with Steve Angello in Miami, suspicion has risen as to whether or not there will be another Swedish House Mafia performance this year. Every time Axwell/\Ingrosso is featured on the lineup I wouldn’t rule it out. Year after year they have been creating the soundtrack to our summers. Axwell/\Ingrosso throws down a set anyone could vibe with.
I’m still grooving to his most recent set here in Chicago. The producer hails all the way from South Africa. Black Coffee is the perfect match for providing the sounds at the Pool Sessions Stage. I’ll be bringing a floatie, just so I can bask in the sun to his melodic rhythms.
