In a further boost to an already packed roster of weekend entertainment, DTM’s umbrella organization ITR GmbH today announced that every round of the 2019 season will feature Saturday-evening music concerts with some of Europe’s top DJ talent.
After select appearances during the 2018 season, ITR today rolls out the initiative for all nine rounds of the 2019 DTM series, with musical acts playing to all ticket-holders in the paddock’s bustling Fan Village area.
Paddock and concert access is included at no cost with all ticket purchases
“We’re absolutely delighted to be able to provide DTM fans with even more action during the 2019 season,” said ITR Director Business Unit Event Frederic Elsner. “Our on-track programme for 2019 is better than ever; a great mix of fantastic racing. Now, when the engines fall silent on Saturday evening, we’ll have another great-value treat for them. With DJ Antoine, Fedde Le Grand, Mike Candys, Bob Sinclar, and Moguai, we’ve secured five internationally successful DJs to soundtrack our Saturday evenings.”
DJ Antoine at Hockenheim, Bob Sinclar at Zolder
On the first Saturday of the season, DJ Antoine will appear on the Hockenheim paddock’s show stage from 19:30hrs. The DJ and music producer made his international breakthrough in 2011 with hit single ‘Welcome to St. Tropez’. With more than eight million albums sold and single collaborations with the likes of Madonna and Britney Spears, he is one of Switzerland’s most successful music artists. DJ Antoine also took part as a judge in 2015’s ‘Deutschland Sucht den Superstar’, Germany’s version of ‘Pop Idol’.
DTM will celebrate its comeback at Zolder, Belgium, on 17-19 May. The French DJ and music producer Bob Sinclar will be entertaining the crowds in the Fan Village at the tradition-steeped racetrack. His hit “Love Generation” was number one in the German charts for several weeks in 2006 and became the best-selling single of that year. In the very same year, he also released the hit-singles “World, Hold On (Children of the Sky)” and “Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now)”. Also in 2006, Bob Sinclar was named the world’s best DJ at the World Music Awards in London.
Fedde Le Grand at Assen
DTM’s Assen debut (19-21 July) will be appropriately accompanied by Fedde Le Grand. The Dutch House DJ and producer from Utrecht has enjoyed a successful DJ career for more than 18 years, most notably with hit single ‘Put Your Hands Up for Detroit’, which was a number-one single in the UK in 2006. He has also remixed hits by superstar acts like Madonna, Coldplay, Michael Jackson, and Fatboy Slim.
Mike Candys at the Lausitzring, Moguai at the Nürburgring
At the Lausitzring (23-25 August), Swiss House DJ and producer Mike Candys will take center-stage. For more than a decade, Candys has been a fixture on the European club scene. In 2012, he had a top-three hit in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland with ‘2012 (If the World Would End)’. DTM’s Nürburgring meeting (13-15 September) will see Moguai headlining the Saturday evening concert. The music producer from Marl is one of the pioneers of the German Techno scene and one of the most in-demand DJs in the world. Moguai has also celebrated major success as a producer, working with artists such as Sugababes, Girls Aloud and 2Raumwohnung.

In addition to the concerts in the paddock, the DTM’s busy support programme comprises attractions such as Pit View, Fan Village, Fan Terrace and driver autograph sessions. Advance bookings for the 2019 season can be made via the official website, www.DTM.com/tickets.
