Ciao AIRBEAT ONE 2022 : Over 200,000 fans and 300 DJs celebrated the comeback of the mega festival !
„Ciao Neustadt-Glewe – Arrivederci AIRBEAT ONE 2022“ was Sunday’s motto after four days of incredible electronic sounds at the Neustadt-Glewe airfield in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. From an audience of 20,000 visitors at the PreOpening to 65,000 who attended Sunday’s epic closing, more than 200,000 fans were in attendance over the four days, traveling from more than 50 countries around the world for the 19th edition of AIRBEAT ONE.
After a two-year pandemic enforced hiatus, the festival was a spectacular successful comeback. With more than 300 international DJs across the 6 stages, this year’s festival officially had the largest most musically diverse electronic music lineup in AIRBEAT ONE history!
Electronic music fans from every continent traveled to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to celebrate AIRBEAT ONE’S 19th birthday, along with many of the world’s greatest living DJs. From Australia to America, from Japan to Mexico, from Norway to South Africa, people traveled on pilgrimage to the grand airfield in Neustadt- Glew to celebrate in peace, and to enjoy a carefree 96 hours of exuberant hedonism, beats, and bass.
The huge showpiece of the festival each year is the enormous MainStage. It never fails to capture the attention of the hundreds of thousands of festival-goers in attendance. This year festival-goers danced amongst four main Italian cities, Milan Cathedral, the Coliseum in Rome, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Rialto Bridge in Venice formed the backdrop of the MainStage.
This was setting the scene for the world’s biggest DJs to play some of the greatest electronic music tracks in the industry. With a width of 160 meters and a height of nearly 50 meters, AIRBEAT ONE remains one of the largest mainstages anywhere in Europe.
With its unique main stage design and one of the most impressive DJ lineups in Europe, AIRBEAT ONE has cemented its place in the top 3 of any festival across the continent, and easily in the top ten coolest festivals in the world. The biggest DJs in the world regularly pay homage to the festival.
US Superstar DJ Steve Aoki said: “This is my favourite AIRBEAT ONE show I have ever done.” And Armin Van Buuren enthused, “I love AIRBEAT ONE, it feels like the oldest festival ever.”
The exceptional reputation and international standing of the festival is also recognized from the fact that international superstar DJs Kygo and Marshmello performed exclusively in Germany at this year’s 2022 festival.
A total of 37 DJs currently ranked in DJ Mag’s illustrious Top 100 DJ list played at this year’s AIRBEAT ONE. A record that no festival in Germany has ever achieved before. Five of the superstar DJs sent the 30,000 music fans into raptures of excitement during Wednesday’s pre-opening. In addition to Tiesto and Marshmello, the highlights of the first day of the festival included Boris Brejcha, Brennan Heart, Robin Schulz, Timmy Trumpet, Vini Vici, and W&W.
Charlotte de Witte, Paul Kalkbrenner, Oliver Heldens, Danny Avila, Will Sparks, Alok, Fedde le Grand, Dillon Francis (exclusive German performance), Tchami, Ferry Corsten, and VIZE really encouraged the AIRBEAT crowd until the finale on Day 2.
Steve Aoki and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike DJs considered the best in the world by many, played one after another, shaking the airfield to its core, the trio treating the ecstatic crowd to a German exclusive and extremely rare 3 Are Legends festival set.
Saturday deliciously delivered with Claptone, Fisher, Marianna Bo, DJ Snake, Martin Solveig, Afrojack, Don Diablo, Lost Frequencies, and KSHMR, each and all superstar DJs of the highest order.
