Frankfurt's Robert Johnson club will celebrate ten years of hard partying later this month with a jam-packed birthday weekend.
The basic and functional venue is owned by Playhouse boss Ata, and has become one of Germany's clubbing hot spots for electronic music lovers that want to focus solely on the music. A couple of years ago, its sheer popularity meant that Ata made the decision not to publish any of their line-ups on the club's website, instead hosting mixes or tracks that would give an idea of the music that you would hear that night. However, we can reveal the mammoth line-up that he has prepared for the tenth birthday of the club, which stretches all the way from Friday through to Sunday.
Things kick off on a slightly Playhouse-themed tip on Friday evening, with RJ regular Ricardo Villalobos sharing DJ duties with Roman Flügel and Sebo K (who is listed under his more unassuming real name of Sabastian Kahrs) until the early hours of Saturday. There's not that much time for sleep, however, as Arto Mwambé will play a live open air set during the afternoon, with support from Robert Johnson residents Gerd Janson and Oliver Hafenbauer.
As soon as that finishes, the party heads back inside for its final evening, with Ata himself taking the reins alongside Parisian nightcrawlers Ivan Smagghe and Chloé. But that isn't the last of it, as revellers who last the distance and brave the sunlight will be treated to a set of tasty dub and reggae from Rhythm & Sound. Hardwax owner Mark Ernestus will appear without his long-term partner in crime Moritz von Oswald, but Jamaican vocalist Paul St. Hilaire will be there to lend some of his dulcet tones to proceedings before Andrew Weatherall steps in to bring the milestone celebrations to a close. With such a large line-up and a limited capacity of 250 for the indoor events, we'd advise that you get down early to avoid being disappointed.
