Cocoon – First Line Up Announcement



The incredible response to our announcement of the very first large scale, indoor, Cocoon show in London can only indicate one thing and that is YOU LOVE COCOON! Early bird tickets sold out in just less than 12 hours, making it the fastest selling LWE event so far.

It’s with great pleasure that we can now give you a taste of what to expect for the whole show with our first announcement of artists.

Sven Väth

Sven Väth doesn’t need much introduction…. Cocoon is home to the booking agency, label and events – three very important components of the electronic music scene that are both innovative and independent. Sven has been a pioneer and god in electronic music and is worthy of his place at the top of the techno tree! He’s the life force behind Cocoon and his hedonistic spirit shines through in his epic DJ sets.

Carl Craig & Cassy

(Exclusive back to back set)

Carl Craig described as a creative visionary, an electronic music icon, an esteemed Grammy-nominated composer, a world-class DJ and an ambassador for his native Detroit. Cassy is Cocoon’s leading lady, she builds sets with a distinctive drive balanced with a sense of warmth and soul. With tunes out on Ostgut Ton, Perlon & Playhouse she even sings vocals on her tracks. Putting these together to perform a one off, very special back to back set is going to be one of those rare magical occasions that simply can not be missed.

Mathias Kaden

Mathias is one of Cocoon’s fastest rising stars, resident at Cocoon in Ibiza and around the globe. Whether it is opening, primetime or after show, Mathias’ intuition for the crowd and location, proves each and every time that he lives for his profession. His closing set at Time Warp was nothing short of amazing. To describe his mixing style as energetic is an understatement and we challenge you to not jack your body to this one!

Onur Ozer

Starting a career in a country with a stagnant music scene was no easy feat but one that he made look cool and effortless. In 2008 following on the back of his releases ‘Twilight’ and ‘Red Cabaret’, Sven Väth invited him to play at one of Cocoon’s flag ship festival’s Green&Blue, not long after, he became part of Cocoon.

Further big announcements coming soon… Are you ready to step into the magic?

London Pleasure Gardens

We were hugely saddened for all involved by last weekend’s problems at BLOC. Following in depth discussions with the venue and the agreement that LWE will be involved in all aspects of the event planning, production and site management we are confident to use London Pleasure Gardens for Cocoon – Into The Magic.

London Pleasure Gardens is an amazing site, full of potential and with these new provisions in place we’ll have an excellent night. See you all on the dance floor.
