A German open-air club pulled off a socially-distanced event complete with live entertainment.

A Münster-based venue, Coconut Beach in Germany, has held what is believed to be the first socially-distanced event at a club. Promoter TakaTuka threw the event which hosted just 100 attendees at the open-air club. Patrons were each positioned in personal sections which were each distanced several feet apart. 

Gerd Janson, who performed at the the socially-distanced event, took solace in the thought that this was a first step towards a return to normal. In a statement provided to Resident Advisor, the DJ commented, “It felt like a reinsurance that it [the event] can go on in some way, shape or form until things can get back to normal.”

Coconut Beach normally has a capacity of 2,000, meaning the 100 person cap marks a 95% attendance reduction compared to the club’s normal cadence of business. As a result, prices were much higher than normal with tickets running €70 each (approximately $76 USD).

Even with the price hike, the club is far from matching the revenues seen prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the Resident Advisor report, the club’s managing director Thomas Pieper acknowledged the abnormally high prices, stating that costs will decrease as regulations adjust and as the live event space continues to slowly return to its long-awaited state of normalcy.

W&W are blending the virtual and real world for an immersive concert experience.

W&W have been tapped for a game-changing livestream experience.

Known for their blistering big room bops, like “Bigfoot” and the Lil Jon-assisted Hardwell collaboration “Live for the Night,” the prolific Dutch DJ duo will be performing at a groundbreaking Extended Reality (XR) concert produced by Netherlands-based events brand ALDA.

What is Extended Reality, you ask? XR is any amalgamation of the real world and virtual space. The term essentially refers to the combination of those environments and the interactions between a human and a machine generated by a digital or technological source.

W&W’s show will entail an entire 3D virtual world being created from scratch. They will perform a virtual set inside a custom-made digital stadium, complete with special animation and graphics to render the show truly one-of-a-kind. The show will also represent a fundraising effort, as W&W and ALDA also teamed up with Unicef as a philanthropic partner to donate proceeds to communities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to ALDA, extra production will come from preeminent electronic dance music event company Insomniac, who will bring their illustrious experience to the trailblazing show. Needless to say, the collective eye of the music industry will be on this show due to its potential to display futuristic, possibly pioneering developments in the livestreaming landscape.

You can tune into the pioneering event via W&W’s Facebook and Twitch on Saturday, May 23rd at 8AM PST (11AM ET, 17:00 CEST) and RSVP here.
