Planetlove will make music-scene history across Ireland on September 8th this year by hosting two festivals, on the same day, North and South of the border.
The 9th annual Planetlove WKD Festival 2007, in association with BBC Radio 1, will take place at Shane’s Castle, County Antrim, while at the same time, at the Fairyhouse Racecourse, Ratoath, County Meath, Southern Ireland will get their first Planetlove festival experience at the Planetlove Summer Session in association with 2FM.
The world’s most famous and acclaimed dance music stars will perform over 12 hours as part of a 70-strong line up at each event: on 7 stages at Planetlove WKD North, and on 6 stages at the Planetlove Summer Session South.
Many of these artists will play both festivals and will be transported between Antrim and Ratoath by a fleet of helicopters.
Ireland’s music scene has never witnessed anything like it!
And what a line up is in store!
Among the stars are world Number 1 DJ Paul Van Dyk, world Number 2 DJ Armin Van Buuren, No.1 chart topper and dance music’s man of the moment Fedde Le Grand (‘Put Your Hands Up for Detroit’), DJ sets from the Babyshambles feat Adam Ficek, Shitdisco, Bodyrockers (‘I Like The Way You Move’), Radio 1 supremo Judge Jules, Lisa Lashes, old skool heroes N-Joi (‘Anthem’), Ferry Corsten, Dave Clarke,.and a wealth of others!
BBC Radio One will be broadcasting live across the UK and world from Planetlove north as well as recording DJ sets for future broadcast, while 2FM will be broadcasting live across Ireland from Planetlove Summer Session.
This means that Northern Ireland’s homegrown Planetlove festivals will have a combined potential audience of 18 million people on September 8th!
“It’s a big expansion for Planetlove and a big undertaking for us,” says Planetlove co-promoter Eddie Wray. “The line ups for both events are exceptional as we continue to work with the most popular dance music artists in the world. And more than ever before, there will be a big emphasis on the shows themselves, with many very unique visual and special effects. September 8th will be a great day for electronic music in Ireland, and thanks to the line up, a dream day out for clubbers across the country.”
“Our line ups are awesome,” says co-promoter Judith Farrell-Rowan. “We have our staples in top world DJs Paul Van Dyk, Armin Van Buuren and Ferry Corsten which makes us very proud, and its great to see guys like Adam Ficek from Babyshambles playing a DJ set, and Fedde Le Grand who is very much the man of the moment, and vocalist Jan Johnstonon the line up. Together - with even more emphasis on the show this year - Planetlove – north and south - will ROCK!”
“Once again WKD are proud to partner Planetlove for another year’s festival. With such an amazing line up it’s one not to be missed… We’ll see you there,” says Judith Robinson, brand manager for WKD and Beverage Brands.
