Ferry Corsten Delights Rotterdam Centraal Station With a Surprise DJ Performance And Debuts New Single

Dutch dance music legend Ferry Corsten sent shockwaves through Rotterdam Centraal Station last Thursday with a surprise pop-up DJ set. The impromptu performance transformed the main hall into a daytime dance floor, with commuters abandoning their routines for a spontaneous burst of raving.

For a glorious hour, Ferry treated the unsuspecting crowd to a taste of his upcoming “What the F!” show, a high-octane concept that’s been electrifying audiences across the globe. This homecoming edition at Maassilo Rotterdam on Friday, May 3rd, promises to be extra special.

Get ready for a six-hour journey through Ferry Corsten’s illustrious career, a musical odyssey that blends past, present, and future. Expect genre-bending remixes and reimaginings of his pioneering hits under aliases like System F and Gouryella, alongside fresh cuts from his forthcoming album, “Connect.”

Shoutout to everyone who joined in the party at Centraal Station and special thanks to the incredible dancers of CODART. It was a lot of fun, and, in all honesty, a heartwarming reminder of the power of music as I watched a diverse dancefloor of people come together, people who perhaps wouldn’t normally come to a club but still got lost in the music. I can’t wait to finally bring my What The F! show home to Rotterdam in May. I can already tell it’s going to be a really special and emotive night

The Rotterdam Centraal set even offered a tantalizing preview of Ferry’s brand new single, “Where the Mountains Grow,” featuring the talents of singer-songwriter Chris Howard. This track, officially released today on Flashover Recordings, marks a reunion for the duo, following their acclaimed 2021 collaboration, “Bloodstream.” “Where the Mountains Grow” delves deep into the world of melodic house, offering a taste of the sonic delights awaiting fans at the “What the F!” show.

The dedication of Ferry’s fans knows no bounds! Two lucky attendees from the UK flew in specifically for the pop-up set, a testament to the infectious energy Ferry’s music generates. The unexpected location brought together a diverse crowd, from wide-eyed youngsters to a spirited 75-year-old who stole the show with her impressive rave stamina.

This isn’t your first rodeo, “What the F!” With sold-out shows across Europe, Asia, North and South America, and Australia, the concept has established itself as a global dance phenomenon. Now, it’s Rotterdam’s turn to experience the magic firsthand, with Grotesque proudly presenting the Dutch debut in Ferry’s hometown.
