when music matters

“Without music, life would be a mistake.”

Research confirms what MAYDAY has known since 1991: music makes you happy. Your heartbeat and pulse change when you listen to music. Your body releases happiness hormones. Your brain is more active and even pain can be relieved. But music is more than a string of scientific facts. Music means freedom – for it belongs to nobody. Each one of us feels it differently and yet experiencing music with others is simply so beautiful.

MAYDAY is “when music matters”. One night when nothing else is important. Dancing and celebrating. Techno, trance, house, hard core and classics. Together with 35 acts and thousands of ravers who love music just as much as you do.

Three floors with a crystal-clear sound and powerfully pulsating basses. Just what the doctor ordered for the type of techno delivered by Chris Liebing, Len Faki, Pan-Pot and Sam Paganini. Mayday premiere for the newcomer of the year: Sefa. Together with his mentor Dr. Peacock and hardstyle legend Coone, he’ll be powering the Factory to new limits. In the Top Ten of the world’s best DJs ever since 2001: Tiësto. Now, at long last, at MAYDAY. Along with Lost Frequencies, Neelix, Boys Noize and Markus Schulz, you’ll experience the pure rave feeling in the Arena. And no later than at this point in time – surrounded by happiness and freedom – you will realise: these are the special moments. That’s when music matters.

MAYDAY brings together those people for whom music is more than just entertainment. It is a friend and a family. Reminiscence and future. Our common language. Speak it loud!

“When words fail, music speaks.”
