The world’s biggest club is returning to Incheon’s Munhak Stadium in South Korea this September. Originating in Germany, Big City Beats made history in 2017 by opening up their unique festival experience to millions of fans across Asia. After attending both the German and Korean edition last year, World Club Dome has instantly made it into my list of top festivals in the world. I am beyond excited to be returning this year. The phase one lineup was recently released, featuring some of the biggest names in the electronic dance scene!
The previous edition of World Club Dome Korea saw over 60 artists spread out across four stages, one of which was dedicated exclusively to hardstyle. This year’s phase one lineup features 12 main stage headliners from all over the globe, some of which appeared in the previous edition.
Here are my top three artists from the 2017 edition who will be returning this year!
ARMIN VAN BUUREN
The undisputed king of trance, Armin van Buuren, can bring a crowd to their feet anywhere he goes and it’s no wonder why he’ll be returning to Incheon later this year. The energy he produced from the previous edition absolutely blew the entire stadium away, not to mention, those lasers were to die for! His flawlessly combined array of visuals and light sequences compliment his euphoric sound perfectly and will leave anyone and everyone in a state of trance. Check out his latest track below.
Voted number one DJ in the world two years in a row, Dutch DJ and producer Martin Garrix will be returning to the main stage this year. The young star has one of the most loyal and dedicated fan bases in the world. The energy from the crowd throughout his set at both the German and Korean edition was absolutely mind-blowing! Constantly surprising his fans with new tracks, no two Martin Garrix sets sound the same and this one is sure to be yet another crowd favourite! Check out his latest track below.
Grammy-nominated electronic superstar Steve Aoki will be returning for another fun-filled night. Known for his outrageous and unusual method of entertainment, the American DJ and producer can be found on stage showering the crowd with champagne and launching cakes into the faces of die-hard fans. I managed to get caked for the second time last year at this event and can confirm that the cake tastes as good as it looks! He also surprised Korean fans with Kpop star, Big Bang singer Seungri who came on stage and performed together. Combining elements of dubstep and trap into his sets, his music acts as the perfect soundtrack for a night of entertainment. Check out his latest track below.
