On Saturday, September 23, 2023, DJ superstar Topic rocked the spectacular PHOTOPIA Stage for the first time! It started at 9 pm, and admission to the event was from 8 pm via the Mitte entrance. And the best part: Entrance to the PHOTOPIA Festival on a day of your choice was included.
Originally an EDM producer and resident DJ of PAROOKAVILLE from Weeze, FRDY [Freddy] has made a name for himself as an established producer as well as a talented live performer. Known for his crazy high energy sets and productions in Dance, Pop and Big Room, the ambitious DJ also has garnered over 14 million streams across his own singles and remixes.
Making global impact with his worldwide hits and own emotional yet exhilarating dance sound, it’s fair to say that Topic is a superstar DJ and hotly in-demand producer. His numbers speak for themselves and are eye-popping by anyone's standards. The German-Croatian had over 1 billion streams in 2021 alone and is rapidly approaching 1 million followers across all social media platforms. He has gold, double diamond, double, triple, quadruple, and even decuple platinum certifications in 28 countries around the world to his name and holds a steady spot in the Top 10 of Spotify's Global Top 200.
The artist himself calls his unique sound ‘melancholic dance music’. It is all about melodies that lodge themselves deep in your brain, drums that demand you to dance, and emotional tenderness that lingers in your heart. It is these signature sounds that globally renowned artists come calling for. They include German titan ATB and production partner A7S, with whom he reworked the classic '9PM (Till I Come)' into 'Your Love (9PM)’, which was nominated for the BRIT Awards in 2022, sharing the category with the likes of Justin Bieber and Billie Eilish. He has also worked with GRAMMY®-nominated rapper Lil Baby, Diamond-selling and two-time GRAMMY®-nominated artist Bebe Rexha, British band Clean Bandit, singer-songwriter Alvaro Soler, and singer Becky Hill, as well as Fifth Harmony singer Ally Brooke, German popstar Nico Santos and many more, all with unforgettable results.
With a festival summer in full swing, Topic has been touring the world relentlessly, playing at all the major festivals including Tomorrowland, Parookaville, Airbeat One, SAGA Festival, Balaton Sound, and has made his big Ibiza debut at Ushuaïa Ibiza.
