Earlier this week we ran a story on global clubbing megalith Godskitchen debuting their latest stage setup – dubbed the Boombox – at an event in the Ukraine. It prompted us to put our reporter’s cap on and do a bit of sleuthing as we were keen to find out if the Boombox was a one-off thing, or if it would be popping up anywhere else in Europe this summer.
No sooner had we started our search for answers and we tracked down details of the Boombox’s upcoming appearance at Global Gathering in the UK this July, with Armin van Buuren and David Guetta set to appear inside the mighty structure. With Global Gathering set to return to Australia later this year, what were the chances the Boombox might also make it down under?
We went straight to the top, asking Mark James of Future Entertainment – promoter of the annual Godskitchen arena tour and Global Gathering festival – to see if they had any plans of touring the Boombox. “Yes, we are looking at bringing the concept out on,” Mark revealed to inthemix. “Either for Godskitchen and/or Global Gathering later in the year.”
Yowsers indeed! The Boombox was in planning for over a year before it made its debut recently at a sold out 16,000 capacity Godskitchen event in the Ukraine. It was designed by noted Parisian collective Exyzt and is 16 metres wide, 8 metres high and 6 metres deep. Check out the link below to see photos of the Boombox in action!
