Disneyland announce new EDM festival featuring Steve Aoki

For many, the idea of combining the Disney magic with the vibes of a dance music festival has long been nothing more than a dream. But now, dreams are becoming reality, with Disneyland Paris offering fans a one-of-a-kind quarter century celebration.

Celebrating their 25th birthday this year, the amusement resort in France will be transformed into ‘Electroland’ on 8th July 2017, a brand new EDM festival, during its evening hours of 7pm to midnight. Fans can expect an almost EDC-like experience, with bright neon colours lighting up the night sky, and several rides and attractions to keep them entertained.

So far, talent confirmed for the event includes Dim Mak label owner and Neon Future DJ Steve Aoki, Australian twin sisters NERVO, and Michael Calfan, best known for his massive 2014 hit ‘Treasured Soul.’ One producer who will definitely not be making an appearance is Canadian DJ deadmau5 (real name Joel Zimmerman) after he became embroiled in a lengthy legal battle with Disney over their use of the trademark Mickey Mouse logo and the similarities to his own Mau5-head logo.

“You’ll be immersed in a magical universe,” states the official Disneyland Paris website, and it looks hard not to agree. Tickets are also very reasonably priced, ranging between £52 and £65, so make sure you secure yours now. You can view the teaser video for the event below and let us know your thoughts!
