Good news for all Parookaville fans: from July 21st to 23rd, 2023, the popular electro festival will take place again in Weeze, North Rhine-Westphalia. On Monday the festival team announced the first names for the line-up.

Star DJ Steve Aoki (45) will be back on stage in 2023. The US artist has been present every time since the festival’s first edition. Next year he will heat up the audience as the main stage headliner on Friday. In addition to Aoki, the Australian musician Timmy Trumpet (40) is also expected again. The iconic brass player will be the main stage headliner on Sunday. Dutch DJ Hardwell (34) only returned in 2022 after a four-year break with his second album “Rebels Never Die”. He will be the main stage headliner at Parookaville 2023 on Saturday. Felix Jaehn will also perform on the main stage on Saturday. The 28-year-old is currently taking a break, but will be back for the 2023 festival season and will remain loyal to Parookaville.

The collaboration between Headhunterz (37) and Wildstylez (39) should pick up all hardstyle fans with a rousing live show. Techno and action artist Stella Bossi is also expected as a newcomer to the “City of Dreams”. The DJane gained notoriety through gigs in Berlin clubs and, according to the organizers, is considered a contender for “the next generation of the techno scene”.

Additional artists will be announced between December 13th and 15th.

The Parookaville took place for the first time in 2015 and in the following years developed into one of the largest European events of its kind. The special and unique concept: The festival area is designed like a city in its own right and has, among other things, a town hall, a church, a bank, a prison and even its own post office. From the initial 40,000 visitors, the number of participants rose to around 225,000 guests. In 2020 and 2021 the event was canceled due to corona.
