There's going to be a Disneyland Paris music festival this year




Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

It's almost summer, which means that if you're not heading to one of the huge music festivals yourself, you're about to see a Facebook/Instagram feed full of people who are (and they've probably already got their festival wardrobe sorted).

But if you're avoiding the madness this year because every time you do go to one you're constantly thinking, 'This would be SO much better if they added a little bit of Disney,' then you're in luck - Disneyland Paris are hosting their own festival this summer, proving that dreams really do come true.

Oh yes, think top live DJs, partying with Mickey Mouse and also getting to go on all of the brilliant rides.

Yes, this is real life.

Some of the DJs already lined up to headline at the Disneyland festival Electroland are none other than Steve Aoki and Australian duo NERVO. Around 10,000 people will be able to attend this dance/electro gig which boasts an open-air stage, LED screens and projection mapping, plus a load of amazing interactive stuff.

It's all in aid of celebrating the park's 25th birthday. That's right - the two theme parks (Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park) are a quarter of a century.

So it'd probably be rude not to head over to the festival on July 8, wouldn't it?
