DJ Deliciuos and Till West will what they do best and cause a bit of mischief in the main room.

Every single release from his various projects - like DJ Delicious & Till West "Same man", Phunk-A-Delic presented by DJ Delicious, "Rockin" or the DJ Delicious solo releases "Let it drop" and "Jaja" - has "exploded" on the worldwide scene so powerfully that they almost completely dominated all the relevant dance charts. Indeed they were - and still are - featured in the playlists of almost every international big-name DJ.

This June will certainly get the summer started so get your dancing shoes on and come check it out!
