Afrojack Reveals His Vision To Give True Fans The Music Experience Of A Lifetime
Dutch producer Nick van de Wall, better known as Afrojack, enjoys the perks that come with headlining huge festivals and hitting the Las Vegas strip. But van de Wall would rather share them with friends, family and fans that will appreciate it. Most recently, he flew his grandmother and the rest of his family on a private jet to join him on tour for a weekend they'd never forget.
In an interview with Vegas Seven, the popular DJ talks about his desire to give these sorts of experiences to his fans as well.
“The first couple of times I was here, I was, like, [in awe]. I wanted to give that experience to my friends and my family. I think I’m going to try to do it with fans sometimes. That would be awesome.”
When asked how this would work, he explains that he would “just pick two lucky fans and just take them on tour for a week.” In fact, it wouldn’t be a first for Afrojack. He had previously brought a couple of fans with him to last New Year in Chicago and the Amsterdam Dance Event two years ago.
But finding the true fans that will appreciate such an experience the most is hard with today's social media saturation, as Afrojack explains.
“I’m working on building a system behind the website where fans can basically sign up and be part of a separate community.”
Completely open social media forums like Twitter contain way too many fake people trying to gain followers, while Afrojack is envisioning a community that will ensure sincere fans get rewarded with special experiences.
“I’m trying to set up a closed community so I can actually give away stuff, free trips and what not, to actual fans, so it doesn’t happen that some random person’s just trying to get followers wins a fucking trip to Vegas or something.”
