COCOON 2018 – OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
2018 and Cocoon marches forward. More vital, more relevant and more shiny than ever. Founded and guided by the legendary Sven Väth this is now one of the most important international music agencies in the world and Sven remains one of the most important global artists.
From the Frankfurt HQ and the endlessly influential Ibiza base Cocoon delivers events, artists and recordings that continue to drive forward and influence modern music. 21 years with a fearless finger on the pulse and in 2018 new faces and projects bring even more energy and ambition.
An exciting new website and social media platforms that have the benefit of a vibrant interactive fan base. More than 2 million followers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter become more and more important as Cocoon makes sure it has the conversations with the people that matter
Cocoon Ibiza. 18 years of innovation and adventure both musically and in design and visuals. Cocoon led the way, presenting astonishing parties in Amnesia whilst always respecting the island and in the end becoming part of it.
In 2018 Cocoon Ibiza will raise the bar once more and join forces with another iconic name. Pacha. Refurbished and reimagined this was the right place and the right moment for Cocoon to present a new vision for Ibiza. It will be a momentous summer, as some 80,000 party guests will surely tell you. There will be some very special daytime events this year at Destino – site of 2 extraordinary closing parties – and on top of that another season of the Thursday night specials. Cocoon @ Tipic Formentera was the worst kept secret of 2017, as Cocoon favourites got up close and personal
Cocoon Events Worldwide. Now flying the flag for irresistible music and design in over 30 different countries with well over 80 events slated for 2018. From Sven Vath hosting the big festival stages to presenting intimate club nights there is a fanatical clued up team behind the scenes. No compromises, every Cocoon occasion matters.
The brand matters, this year more than ever. Our unique annual event Cocoon in the Park in the north of England reaches its 10th anniversary and in 2019 the 20th anniversary of Cocoon Ibiza.
Cocoon Recordings is flourishing. New artists have joined the roster and the rich back catalogue is going to be joined by some startling new releases. And a very busy 2018 will of course also feature the treasured Cocoon compilations signposting what is going on at the sharp end. And Sven Väth will be looking into his crystal ball once again and as ever making sure new voices are heard
The merchandise department is being expanded and will be responding very quickly to in house and commercial demands as this huge year begins to unfold.
Last but not least Flash Artist Booking continues to expand and develop a powerful roster. An important department within the company but one free to set its own targets and challenges. A strategy that is adding more excitement to what is going to be an incredible year for Cocoon. As an example look out for the monthly live sessions featuring key Flash artists. Cocoon 360° comes direct from the Frankfurt HQ.
21 years old, now the restless rhythmic souls at Cocoon can start looking to the future.
