Disneyland Paris announced today the star studded line-up for ELECTROLAND – a three-day electronic music festival – which returns for its third year on 5, 6 & 7 July 2019
Attracting more than 16,000 music fans last Summer, Electroland returns to Disneyland Paris for its third year in July 2019. This year’s electronic music festival offers three full days of entertainment – a mix of music and magic. This year’s theme – inspired by The Lion King and Jungle Festival – features some roaring DJ sets that invite guests to enter the jungle with Steve Aoki, Alesso, Armin Van Buuren and many more.
Three amazing nights with massive DJs at Walt Disney Studios
Friday 5 July
The festival starts big on opening night with the return of Steve Aoki. The DJ and Grammy-nominated American producer thrilled guests at the first-ever Electroland in 2017, and now he’s back with a hypnotic new show! He will join forces with Australian sisters NERVO, famous for their collaborations with Afrojack, Kylie Minogue, Ke$ha, Miley Cyrus and many more. They’ll be joined by Dutch group Showtek and Belgian DJ The Magician.
Saturday 6 July
The party starts up again the next day with Alesso, one of the world’s most influential DJs, producer and all-around entertainer. Alesso is always highly in demand at the world’s biggest festivals and will get the place jumping in front of the Hollywood Tower Hotel. One of the most influential Dutch performers of his time, Nicky Romero will also wow the crowds at Walt Disney Studios Park. Spanish DJ B Jones – often spinning the decks in Ibiza – and British DJ Jax Jones are also promising an unforgettable show.
Sunday 7 July
The last night in the jungle at Disneyland Paris will be hosted by record-breaking five-time Best DJ in the World Armin Van Buuren! He’ll be joined on the last night of Electroland by French DJ Feder, Dutchman Fedde Le Grand and deep house diva Nora En Pure.
Attractions and entertainment all night long
Electroland is more than just an electro festival as guests will also get to explore and ride key attractions such as Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith, Crush’s Coaster, Ratatouille: The Adventure and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
After sunset, the iconic Hollywood Tower Hotel will come to life with electro mixes, video projections, light shows, big screens and state of the art special effects for three unique evenings of entertainment!

Thomas Dutronc will also appear on stage in front of the Hollywood Tower Hotel.
Disney and Jazz, a love story celebrated by a unique event
Did you know? It was in France in 1919 that Walt Disney heard jazz for the first time, and it was his favourite genre from then on. Since then, jazz has been a major part of Disney heritage, through the unforgettable music and songs of films like The Jungle Book, The Aristocats and Toy Story, and hit Jazz Loves Disney albums.
And it’s the jazziest characters in Disney history that people will be meeting on the night. The three young Aristocats Marie, Toulouse and Berlioz will be making a special appearance, along with Edgar, their formidable butler. Baloo and King Louie from The Jungle Book will be there to get you swinging. The heroes of the film The Princess and the Frog, Tiana, Naveen and Louis the trumpet-playing crocodile, plus the terrible Dr Facilier will get you dancing to the rhythms of the Bayou. Mickey, Minnie, Buzz Lightyear and Woody from Toy Story, and Oswald and Hortensia, Walt Disney’s first ever heroes, will also appear.
Jazz and dream attractions for all ages
The Disney Loves Jazz soiree will naturally be a very special opportunity to enjoy some of the Walt Disney Studios Park attractions, including Les Tapis Volants – Flying Carpets Over Agrabah, Toy Soldiers Parachutes Drop and Ratatouille: The Adventure for all the family and Crush’s Coaster, RC Racer and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror for thrills and spills!

Scot Drake, Creative Executive Marvel Global Portfolio, shares more details on this exciting new project.

As I shared with you just a few months ago, Walt Disney Imagineering’s Global Marvel Portfolio is working closely with our partners across Studios and Entertainment to create exciting experiences and attractions where you can join fan-favorite Super Heroes at Disneyland Resort and Disneyland Paris.
One of the best parts of my job is getting to collaborate with a diverse group of talented Imagineers, all pushing to bring this incredible universe to life, in a way that is authentic to this iconic brand. Developing new and innovative technologies, telling new stories and creating experiences that allow our guests to play an active role alongside these extraordinary characters is our core mission.
Today, I’m happy to be able to share more details on an immersive, interactive experience coming to Disney California Adventure park at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney Studios park at Disneyland Paris.
Both parks will feature an exciting new attraction where guests of all ages can join the heroes in action. We are expanding our story universe by creating a new organization, the Worldwide Engineering Brigade, to be our setting for this experience. Though WEB is grounded in classic characters like Peter Parker, it is an organization that we can all be a part of – one that invites us to engage with these iconic heroes like never before.
Besides introducing WEB, we can’t wait to debut a brand-new, cutting-edge interface as part of this fun, interactive attraction. Through a blend of never-before-seen technology and practical effects, guests will get to experience for themselves what it is like to have the abilities of a Super Hero.
This adventure will blend seamlessly into the story of the new lands we’re creating at both Disney California Adventure park and Walt Disney Studios park, where there will be surprises at every turn!
And the feeling is mutual. According to Ryan, “It has been the highlight of my career to design all of Spider-Man’s suits for the most recent films. Bringing him to life through Tony Stark’s capable design aesthetic was a true joy, but working with the Walt Disney Imagineering team to develop a look for Spidey that reflects the innovation of a team of young geniuses really brings him to a new level. And knowing that park guests can get up close to that suit and really take in all the detail the astounding Imagineers packed into it means that we have truly brought a new version of the character to life.”
We are proud to be creating new homes for these characters – where guests can live their own adventures alongside fan-favorite Super Heroes.
