The year’s biggest dance party of the year is just days away
Celebrating 10 years, the giant dance party Transmission takes place Nov. 30 at O2 Arena, its home since 2007. The UFO-shaped venue is a fitting space for a party that tries to create an out-of-this world atmosphere. The theme for this year is Machine of Transformation, and organizers expect 10,000 visitors from at least 50 countries. The last group of tickets is on sale, so purchasing in advance is recommended.
The headliner is German trance DJ Marcus Schulz, famous for his Global DJ Broadcast radio show. According to a 2012 poll by DJ Magazine, he is the lucky 13th best DJ in the world. He scores as high as eighth in 2010. For its part, the magazine DJ Times named him the No. 1 DJ in America, where he has been based.
Next on he list of talent is Ørjan Nilsen from Norway. His first official recording, “Arctic Globe” in 2007, hit the top spot in the Dutch dance charts. So far this year, he has released nine singles.
Rounding out the top line of talent is DJ duo Cosmic Gate, made up of German DJs Claus Terhoeven and Stefan Bossems. They have been active since 1999 and play upwards of 100 nights per year, and have racked up more than 1,000 club dates in their career. The duo’s most successful single was Fire Wire, which peaked at No. 9 on the UK dance charts in 2001. Six other acts are scheduled to perform.
According to the press release, Transmission is known for its Funktion One sound system, which is brought from the UK. As always, the interior of O2 Arena will be transformed with hundreds of square meters of LED screens, dozens of lasers, CO2 cannons, confetti and pyrotechnic effects into an amazing slice of the nightlife in Prague.
United Music, the company behind the event, stresses that biggest part of the atmosphere is created by the people who come to the show.
