The Strandpiraten were founded in 2011 in the Düsseldorf beach club “Treibgut”. Oliver van Lin and Oliver Knabben, alias Starskie, are the two veterans and founders of this successful DJ collective. The collective is completed by Sebastian Rinn, alias DISKOMAT and Rainer Kinsky, alias KINSKY. Every summer they treat the electronic house music lovers of Düsseldorf to their mesmerizing sounds.
What started as a gig with 50 friends developed into evening events with several thousand people. From May to August they participate in a large number of open-air events, both within Düsseldorf and across the region. The Strandpiraten regularly invite DJ friends from all over the world to participate in their events.
Since 2018, the Strandpiraten have found a new home base for the summer in the Rheinterrasse, on the banks of the Rhine River in Düsseldorf. During the same period, they started with their one hour radio show on Ibiza Live Radio, which is broadcasted every Tuesday from 5pm to 6pm.
The Strandpiraten actively aim to break new ground and embrace challenging adventures.
