About ParookaVille

ParookaVille is an electronic music festival held annually in Weeze, Germany. EDM takes center stage as global scene icons play to ever-increasing crowds across the three-day event. So, now in its third year, the festival has quickly developed a strong reputation for impressive lineups and spectacular production, with breathtaking staging and lighting pyrotechnics creating a gripping atmosphere.

This is also combined with an established mythology and backstory of the festival. Where festival-goers are ‘citizens’ of ParookaVille, annually commemorating the town’s fictional founder and mayor, Bill Parooka. Besides all this, it adds to the enthralling immersive experience that the festival offers. Armin van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Steve Aoki, Martin Solveig, and DVBBS are among the global dance music superstars to have appeared in previous editions.

Role of Backbone

So, with a 13-day load, our overlay manager built 24 kilometers of fences, 900 meters of barriers, 1,300 banners, 10 kilometers of police fences, 450 folding tables, and three entrances by utilizing the former army airfield, which was filled with bunkers, airport runways, and hangars. We could effectively use the location’s existing infrastructure with temporary infrastructure. Parookaville welcomes 65,000 attendees for each of the three festival days with ten stages and 200 DJs.

Highlight: We were able to finish our production in beautiful weather.
