Planet Pop Festival has been an annual festival of dance music performed by the Building Records label, which has involved dance music artists of international radio stations in Brazil each year. The show, which had its first edition in 2003, only had one Brazilian submission, with the international group Lasgo playing the opening show. The event had not yet been termed "Planet Pop Festival" during the first year, but was named thus in 2004. The location of the show has been the Via Funchal theatre, located in Vila Olímpia of São Paulo. The events for the festivals from 2004-2009 are described below.
2004 Edition[edit | edit source]
The first Planet Pop Festival was held on 13/14 August 2004, at the Via Funchal playhouse. At the time of the event, which was streamed live by Jovem Pan radio station, as dance music was having a surge in popularity at the time. Italian Rossano Prini, known as DJ Ross, was popular with the hits "Emotion", "Floating In Love" and "Dreamland". Tristano De Bonis, known by the stage name Magic Box, was popular with the hits "This Is Better" and "If You". Erika, the sister of Tristano De Bonis (Magic Box) was popular with the songs "Ditto", "I Do not Know" and "Relations", and at that time had a roll with DJ Ross. The trio, which comes from Italy, was certainly one of the great attractions of the night, performing together on stage. On the same night, there were also two of the most renowned projects in the history of dance music: Lasgo and Ian Van Dahl. The first, led by singer Evi Goffin and accompanied by dancer duo, ended the evening concerts, and was certainly the show that most stirred the public. Ian Van Dahl played his new hits of the then-new CD Lost & Found, and also old hits such as "Castles In The Sky", "Try" and "Will I?". The show also had performances by Brazilian project Dalimas playing a remix cover of "Livin' On A Prayer" by Bon Jovi. The estimated audience to have watched the 2003 shows was over 15 thousand people, between the two nights. The first night, the show was recorded, and its DVD released 7 months later; it was called "Live Planet Pop Festival in Brazil, Volume 1".
2005 Edition[edit | edit source]
In the second edition of the event, there was notable greater care of the production of the stage set. But at the same time, there were many complaints from the public about the low sound that was issued by amplifying boxes, and the fact the lighting in Via Funchal was very intense for virtually every show. This event occurred on 7/8 April 2005, and the event was less public than the previous edition. The 2005 event repeated the attraction of Italian DJ Ross, Magic Box and Erika and brought the German DJ Jan Wayne, responsible for hits "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and "More Than a Feeling". Charlene (Germany) was also present. A key attraction of the evening was The Underdog Project, from Germany. The 2005 edition marked the debut of Daytona at a big event. Another project led by Tibor Yuzo wrote a song exclusively for the event called "The Butterfly". The Dalimas also played.
2006 Edition[edit | edit source]
The 2006 edition of the event was again held in April. It was a huge hit both with audiences and critics. Confirmed artists: Ian Van Dahl and Lasgo; Groove Coverage and fellow German DJ Jan Wayne together with Charlene; DJ Ross and Double You; Daytona; Dalimas and Kasino. Ian Van Dahl released the song "Movin' On", which was Brazilian radio's No. 1 four times in 2006, an unprecedented feat for a dance music song. In both concerts, the repertoire and format of the presentations were similar. The order was as follows: Daytona, Dalimas, Kasino, Jan Wayne & Charlene, DJ Ross, Double You, Groove Coverage, Lasgo and Ian Van Dahl singing together on stage. Later, Charlene came back and sang with Mel (lead singer of Groove Coverage) the classic "I'll Fly With You" by Gigi D'Agostino and Love Generation. In the end, the joint rendition belonged to Annemie Coenen (Ian Van Dahl) and Evi Goffin (Lasgo) and included the hit "Surrender". It is estimated that the attendance this year was 6,000 people on Friday and 7,500 on Saturday. The show's DVD was launched in December 2006, entitled "Planet Pop Festival Live in Brazil Volume 3".
2009 Edition[edit | edit source]
