Sven Vath In The Mix Sound Of The 8th Season World Tour photo gallery
Sven Vath is truly the last of the rock n roll DJ's, and we love him all the more for it. He has been called "the only German pop-star" by the press (David Hasslehoff step aside) and is an absolute legend, both for his mind blowing DJ sets and his unique productions.
His Cocoon club night - which represents "metamorphosis, development, new birth and surprises", began in Germany in 1998 but has now grown to be an international clubbing brand, with regular appearances at select venues around the world, including The End as its London home. He has somehow managed to combine being an underground party warlord with a national hero - and was even personally invited to come back to his home town of Obertshausen to set up a yearly outdoor festival at a location of his choosing!
His reputation for being a hedonist is not unfounded, and although he has calmed down (a bit) - today's squeaky clean early-to-bed-early-to-rise DJ's could learn a lot from the techno-lord: ripping off his shirt, diving into the crowd or plugging his headphones into the microphone for a bit of 'ad-libbing' over tracks are not unusual. Gude Laune!
Now he is coming to The End, London for "Sven Vath in the mix - Sound of the 8th Season World Tour" and everything shows that this night will be AMAZING!!!
