The festival summer is finally inching closer, and PAROOKAVILLE is heating up the anticipation with more global stars added to the line-up. The crazy festival city opens its gates now for the seventh time this July 21st to 23rd at Weeze Airport, featuring over 300 acts on more than 10 stages and 225.000 fans. Each of the three festival days is jam-packed with the full range of electronic music, and 85 percent of all the Visas (Tickets) for PAROOKAVILLE 2023 are already sold out.
Having already delivered a magnificent show at the first PAROOKAVILLE Festival in 2015, the US Future-Bass duo The Chainsmokers now returns to the Mainstage for their first performance here since 2019. The songs from these Grammy winners including Closer, Don’t Let Me Down, and Something Just Like This with Coldplay are celebrated worldwide as super hits totaling several billion streams. Their latest single Make Me Feel is a driving Bass-House number hinting at the glorious celebration we can expect from their acclaimed live set at PAROOKAVILLE. (Mainstage Headliner, Saturday)
Dutchman Oliver Heldens has made a home in the Top 10 of the DJ Mag Top 100 and at PAROOKAVILLE for years now. His #1 debut mega-hit Gecko and his remixes for Tiësto, Dua Lipa, Coldplay, James Hype, and many more are always a sure-fire guarantee for ecstatic vibes at the world’s largest festivals, and his appearance with us in July is sure to be no exception.

W&W have been on board at PAROOKAVILLE every year the festival has run since 2017. The Dutch DJ duo is an absolute favorite of our Citizens, and their Crowd Control sandstorm in front of the Mainstage in 2018 is now the stuff of legend. The celebration in front of PAROOKAVILLE’s biggest stage in 2023 is set to be no less insane! (Mainstage Headliner, Saturday)
Known for his melodic sounds, Mike Williams also returns to Weeze this year. Both Mike and Will Sparks will hit the Mainstage on Friday.
One of the biggest fish in the Tech House pond is undoubtedly Australia’s FISHER. He’s been a PAROOKAVILLE Citizen since his grandiose breakthrough with Losing It. He returns this year for the third time with a bag full of subsequent hits. The multi-Platinum winning Fisher is known far and wide for his stunning live performances, making him the perfect headliner for the Desert Valley Stage on the festival Friday.
Dutchman Brennan Heart, meanwhile a pillar of the Hardstyle scene and a close ally of PAROOKAVILLE for years, pumps all of his bundled energy out to the audience in his live performances. For 20 years now he’s proven with his releases and shows that he doesn’t follow current trends, he creates them. Brennan is back this year to drive the Citizens to ecstatic heights, joined once again onstage by Jonathan Mendelsohn! These two have enraptured millions of fans for 10 years now with releases like Imaginary, and the crowd can look forward again this year to this fantastic highlight with outstanding beats plus gripping live vocals.
Off to a good start: Imanbek’s brilliant Roses remix made him a star overnight, bringing him millions of new fans and billions of streams, along with a prestigious Grammy award in 2021. He’s also proven he’s no One-Hit-Wonder with successful follow-up releases since then, expanding this Kazakh DJ’s impressive Platinum collection even further. 1LIVE presents Imanbek’s Parookaville debut at the start of the festival on Friday at Bill’s Factory.
Mau P is hard at work right now turning the Tech House scene on its head, and this summer he’ll bring all this energy to the Desert Valley Stage! This city boy brings his Amsterdam sound to PAROOKAVILLE for the first time on the heels of his current virtually sold-out tour of North America.
Germany’s Cosmic Gate have been thrilling Trance fans around the world since the 90s, and this summer they’ll make their third home-game appearance in Weeze. The follow-up to their hit album Mosaik was just released a few days ago, and the duo is set to fill the Cloud Factory on Sunday with their new hits and unforgettable classics.
The huge Artist Announcement for the seventh edition of PAROOKAVILLE is rounded out with more star acts including France’s I Hate Models, whose sets are as somber as they are sentimental. Double-Platinum artist Luude will also be on hand to deliver an unforgettable show at the Cloud Factory. More acts will be revealed on the accustomed social media channels during the course of the Announcement Week.
“This year, we’re looking forward to what’s likely to be the best Friday of all time at our City of Dreams,” says Bernd Dicks, co-founder, and Managing Director of Parookaville GmbH. “The Desert Valley Stage is set to bring the coolest of the cool in today’s Tech House segment with FISHER and Mau P . And the Cloud Factory will feature a brutal Bass line-up, while the Power Plant will debut Hardstyle sounds beyond the realm of 180 BPM.” Bernd is also excited once again about the mega-quality of the Sunday roster. “Kygo and Timmy Trumpet as headliners on the Mainstage and our utterly insane live program at Bill’s Factory are bound to set the ground quaking in our city again to close out the festival.”
