Entertainment during the show!

We are proud to announce our world famous and unique musicians Dario Rossi & Sven Hammond!


Dario Rossi is one of the best drummers in the world, known for his unique performances. His music, and especially his way of producing it, represents an unique view into electronic music scene.

It’s in the summer of 2014 in Berlin that the video from his performance in Alexander Platz goes viral, and the same thing happens with preformances in Amsterdam (Dam Square) and Barcelona (Playa de la Barceloneta).


Hammond lover Sven Figee is the pianist of one of Holland’s most cherished bands, Sven Hammond Soul. Pulsating and inspiring beats stem from five guys with a vibrant, energy-driven and rhythmic vibe in their music.

They know what it means to give it all they got, who go crazy and know how to play the audience and captivate them with every note. Straight to the inner depths of one’s soul, the music created is genuinely from the heart.
