„we stay different“
Westfalenhallen Dortmund, Germany
35 Acts. 14 Hours. 3 Floors.
Electronic Music Festival - Since 1991.


MAYDAY stays different. Pioneering the scene. For 27 years. At the centre: The music. The party. The ravers. Partying longer, partying harder, 14 hours nonstop. All styles of electronic music. Doesn't matter whether it's trance, techno, house, goa, hardcore or hardstyle - the main thing is that it's loud and a mind-blow. And the taste police stay outside.

New: three floors in three different halls - so no clashing of the music, more space and an unrivalled sound. Powerful, bass-heavy, very physical. To make sure the music makes contact full force in the Techno-Empire with Charlotte de Witte, Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, Klaudia Gawlas and Pappenheimer. Hardcore heads are already clenching their fists: Angerfist is back in Dortmund! He'll be marauding around the Factory with the likes of Zatox, Warface, Paul Elstak and a number of other hard characters. Sven Väth, Neelix, Moonbootica, Lexy & K-Paul and Ferry Corsten on one floor? Only at MAYDAY, only in the Arena. Different, baby!

Uniformity is boring. Being different is where it's at. And so much is different at MAYDAY. Extreme systems, new styles, cool dudes. All with the same aim: having fun, partying, wild rave! There may be less glitter but the passion is so much stronger.

We stay different - stay with us!
