As industry heavyweights that have not only changed the landscape of modern electronic music but are also assured as two of the most prominent faces of the scene in a generation, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike continue to smash every record in the book. Following their colossal 2015 area snow ‘Bringing The Madness 3.0’, the current #2 DJ’s in the world decided to raise the bar in 2016 and attempt to break the record for the biggest solo show by a DJ in Germany. In what was a ferociously sought-after event, the pair succeeded in their goal of obliterating the previously-set record as 45,000 ardent fans joined them at the Veltins Arena (home to FC Schalke 04 Football club) for the ‘Bringing Germany The Madness’ extravagance, which was of truly epic proportion!
In partnership with Tomorrowland and World Club Dome winter edition, the show sold over 30,000 tickets in under 24 hours when they first went on sale. Shortly after the event’s capacity sold out which demonstrated the tremendous pulling power that a Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike show has amongst their European fan base.
