Sven Väth – 50 years in the making


Sven Väth aka Papa Sven to many of his industry peers and fans is turning 50 this week. A career spanning 30+ years and travel miles enough to orbit the solar system. His influence on dance music culture in the last 30 years is undeniably one of the most celebrated and respected of any active DJ’s career span. As a dedication for his monumental accomplishments and recognition, Timewarp has made it clear that they will be hosting his Official 50th birthday party on Saturday, October 25th celebrating with his longtime friends Richie Hawtin, Luciano, and DJ Koze. This is not what a typical 50th birthday celebration looks or sounds like but again this is Papa Sven we’re talking about here, nothing he does is ever typical. In honor of Papa Sven’s 50th birthday our buddies over at Pulse Radio chalked up a dedicated piece highlighting some of the most memorable moments throughout his career including the 32 Hour Marathon set at Love Parade in Berlin; click here for the full list.
