Sven Väth

About Sven Väth

Sven Vath is quite simply unique. A legend in his own lifetime with a commitment and passion that has influenced the advance and evolution of electronic music. Clubs, record labels and careers have been launched.
There are some people that are destined to emerge and change things. Change landscapes. Sven Vath is a risk taking visionary, an instigator, an innovator and very possibly invincible.
1981 and Frankfurt it started. Quickly the figurehead for a techno revolution in Germany that was to spread far and wide. Worldwide. Setting sail alone, this was 1981 and this was new. The Omen Club and so many other adventures punctuated this period, getting the sound out there . Vinyl then, vinyl now. Parties that mattered and changed things. Parties that reinforced a vision and eventually gave birth to Cocoon.
An extraordinary residency in one of the best clubs in the world was unleashed in 1999. Cocoon Ibiza, Amnesia on a Monday night. Now 15 years of parties that have set new standards in production and have never compromised on what matters. The music. An incredible risk became, and still is, one of the great successes in modern music and clubbing. A phenomenon now attracting upwards of 80,000 visitors in a 4 month season with Sven Vath front and centre throughout.
Along with Cocoon Ibiza Sven created a booking agency (now Flash Artist Booking – targeting the best and the brightest), an event agency (Cocoon Event – spreading the vision across 5 continents and now over 30 countries) and a record label (Cocoon Recordings – with a back catalogue stuffed with quality) that gets ever more important and just keeps growing.
For all that you have to meet the man behind the decks to really get it. With vinyl flailing he picks up a crowd and takes them with him. At a Sven gig you are in a performance with no one knowing quite what is going to happen. It has always been so. There may be 120 gigs a year, some big some small, but you will always feel invited and you will always see the heart of the man. That heart belongs to the crowd. Everyone is a VIP. Sven Vath is rock and roll.
In October 2014 there was a happening that expressed exactly this togetherness. It was a 50th birthday party that had everything. In stunning surroundings 12,000 people joined together in Mannheim to celebrate a monumental life and career. An unforgettable night of dancing and community.

In 2015 the most charismatic DJ of his generation is more vital and relevant than ever. Utterly professional, utterly unpredictable. No one else like him. Not even close.
