MAYDAY Dortmund 2013

The Mother of all Raves

The Basics

In Germany, everyone knows MAYDAY. Founded in 1991 as one of the first electronic music events, its inaugural edition saw sets by Westbam, Sven Väth, and Tanith - DJs who went on to define the early 90s in Germany, at events such as the Loveparade and NATURE ONE.

Fast forward to 2013, and MAYDAY still attracts over 25,000 to the 15 hour rave odyssey. Over five separate halls, two megawatts of electricity power a multitude of lasers, smoke machines, LED visuals and bone-shaking soundsystems - in the Arena alone, enough electricity to power the home stereo of every visitor at maximum volume.

The 'Mother of all Raves' sees international DJs alongside Germany's best, bringing electro, trance, hard dance and techno acts at the top of their game. Discover what makes MAYDAY the must-attend event at the start of the summer season in Germany - and see if you can last from through to 9am on Sunday morning...
