Disney Organizers Share More Details About Their One-Day Festival Event, Electroland

After receiving tons of online hype, the organizers at Disney Business Solutions have finally sat down to give us the scoop on Disneyland Paris’ Electroland Music Festival.

The music festival from our wildest childhood dreams is finally happening, and Raphael Aflalo from My Love Affair, chatted with Music Week to give them the inside story. With a stacked lineup and a venue claimed to be “the happiest place on earth”, this festival is surely looking to be one for the books.

In the interview, Aflalo discusses marrying the concept between Disney and nightlife:

[18-25 year olds] probably went to Disneyland when they were younger but, when they are studying, they prefer to go to a club, so the idea is to combine both experiences. From 4pm they can enjoy the theme park attractions, before the show begins. It’s a new model because many of the big festivals are held in stadiums and big parks.

DJs were immediately on board with performing at the first-ever Electroland, but that curated music isn't the only thing that fans can expect.

The feedback we received from DJs when we were enquiring about availabilities was that it would be a dream for them to play at Disneyland. In terms of production, there will be mapping on the Tower Of Terror and animations, it will be incredible. The new generation does not only want to dance, but have a full and complete journey of entertainment.”

He also divulged secrets into the event's plans to expand in the future:

We hope to develop a longer festival, maybe held over two days because the intention is to encourage people attending the show to stay over at the resort,” said Aflalo. “We have already sold a lot of hotel packages for this year. Normally, when Disneyland doesn’t have an event, the average time before booking a visit is just two to three days before the weekend. For this event, they have sold much more quickly.

Electroland wrapped up yesterday at Disneyland Paris, and to be honest we suffered a serious case of FOMO over it. If you missed the event, stay tuned for future editions of this fun-filled event! In the meantime, check out the full interview at Music Week.
