We are Rave The Planet

Our mission, our Vision, our Team

Rave The Plan­et sym­bol­izes the love for elec­tron­ic music, the fun in life and, simul­ta­ne­ous­ly, inter­na­tion­al under­stand­ing, diver­si­ty, open-mind­ed­ness and respect. We are a non-prof­it lim­it­ed com­pa­ny based in Berlin and ded­i­cat­ed to the spir­it and cul­ture of elec­tron­ic music. Our ini­tia­tors are artists, ravers, entre­pre­neurs — and above all Dr. Motte, also known as the inven­tor of the Love Parade.

Our aim is to pre­serve, main­tain, pro­tect and devel­op the art and cul­ture of elec­tron­ic music in all its forms. That’s why we are cre­at­ing a new plat­form to raise pub­lic and polit­i­cal aware­ness, as well as to pro­vide updat­ed infor­ma­tion on the real­i­ty of our cul­ture. Because we believe that elec­tron­ic music is a spe­cial cul­tur­al asset in urgent need of preser­va­tion, our goal is to make it gen­er­al­ly com­pre­hen­si­ble for every­one while at the same time fos­ter­ing under­stand­ing among nations and peo­ples. This is why we are stand­ing up to appeal that elec­tron­ic music cul­ture be includ­ed on the

UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

In our belief that the pro­tec­tion of cul­ture is a seri­ous issue for us all, we want to encour­age peo­ple to cre­ate free spaces and areas for per­son­al devel­op­ment while at the same time pro­tect­ing those which already exist. By using eye-catch­ing and effec­tive activ­i­ties, offers and cam­paigns, we intend to present this top­ic to the gen­er­al pub­lic. With Rave The Plan­et, our aim is to also cre­ate a plat­form for indi­vid­u­al­i­ty, self-devel­op­ment and self-real­iza­tion. We active­ly live the sense of com­mu­ni­ty and togetherness.

Whether for orga­niz­ers, DJs, live acts, pro­duc­ers, label own­ers, dancers or music lovers — we enable net­work­ing and syn­er­gies where every­one can join in and every­one is wel­come. At Rave The Plan­et, cre­ators and con­nois­seurs of cul­ture all come together.

Our dream is of a hap­py soci­ety filled with music and we would like an offi­cial hol­i­day for the cel­e­bra­tion of our elec­tron­ic music cul­ture. We want to unite all the peo­ple of the world under its large and col­or­ful umbrel­la. Our goal is world peace.

Claudia’s pas­sion is music and club cul­ture. Since the begin­ning of the 90s she has been work­ing for numer­ous large and small music labels in the fields of A&R, prod­uct man­age­ment and PR.

„Tech­no is an expres­sion of our cul­ture and our being in the here and now. I love it when peo­ple come togeth­er just to dance to the music and smile at each oth­er. Let’s do just that and live and sup­port our culture.“

Dr. Motte

Dr. Motte

Director of Creative Content & Cultural Affairs

One man who, if any­one does, qual­i­fies for the title of leg­endary must sure­ly be Dr. Motte. An orig­i­nal through and through, this DJ, pro­duc­er and remix­er from the orig­i­nal van­guard of Tech­nos few pio­neer­ing souls ini­ti­at­ed and suc­cess­ful­ly staged what became the biggest cul­tur­al cel­e­bra­tion of music, tol­er­ance, love and indeed life itself, that the world has ever seen: the Lovepa­rade.

Even with such achiev­ments to his cred­it, Dr. Motte has stayed true to his ideals, true to the under­ground that has been his home for decades. By his cho­sen way of life, he remains attuned to and a part of that all impor­tant zeit­geist. Now like then, he stands for peace, love, uni­ty and respect.

„Any­one who under­stands music as a culture’s social respon­si­bil­i­ty is and will always remain progressive.“

Ellen

Creative Director & Head of Public Relations

Ellen is a com­mu­ni­ca­tion design­er, artist man­ag­er and pas­sion­ate raver. She runs the full-ser­vice agency Logow­erk, which has been based in the heart of Berlin since 1995 and cov­ers a mul­ti­fac­eted range of ser­vices from graph­ic design to com­mu­ni­ca­tion to spe­cial cor­po­rate events.

She has been work­ing for over ten years already as an artist man­ag­er for Dr. Motte. In this con­text, she has ren­dered out­stand­ing ser­vices to the title of a “one-woman-office-task-force”.

“My social­iza­tion process took place in elec­tron­ic music. No “you”, no “me”, but a big “us”. Tech­no is my love, danc­ing is my pas­sion. Move­ment, con­tem­pla­tion, expres­sion of the soul. It is the purest form of inter­per­son­al com­mu­ni­ca­tion. With­out words — every­body under­stands. Peace.”

“I am very pleased to be involved in such an excit­ing and social­ly rel­e­vant project. For me it has a touch of active his­to­ry cre­ation and through Coro­na the neces­si­ty became more appar­ent than ever:

It’s time to give the Scene the Cred­it and Pro­tec­tion it deserves!

Florian

Managing Director

For a long time, Flo­ri­an was active in the health sec­tor for instance as clin­i­cal direc­tor. A grad­u­ate in Euro­pean busi­ness admin­is­tra­tion, he is nat­u­ral­ly at ease with num­bers and humans. Many times in the past, his strate­gies and con­cepts con­vinced peo­ple to fol­low his lead. This led to great results: Flo­ri­an has saved many hos­pi­tals from sure clo­sure. By estab­lish­ing dig­i­tal strate­gies, and thus cre­at­ing ben­e­fits for patients and staff, he was able to secure their futures.

The world envies you for being able to live here in Berlin: cap­i­tal of cul­ture, par­ty and club metrop­o­lis­es, strong­hold of the Cur­ry­wurst… This city is at the same time ver­sa­tile, his­toric, chaot­ic and col­or­ful. Allow­ing such excit­ing and tol­er­ant milieus to assert them­selves and spread through­out the world: Rave the planet!”

Thomas

Thomas

Web Developer

Thomas eats codes for break­fast. He is an ana­lyst and devel­ops log­ics where oth­ers only see chaos. Before he made his way to becom­ing a web devel­op­er, he had trained his skills in audio engi­neer­ing. At the SAE Insti­tute he learned music pro­duc­tion and film syn­chro­niza­tion. After that he went into IT and marketing.

He found­ed his com­pa­ny Play­field-Media more than four years ago and real­ized large projects, such as the entire used car net­work of Toy­ota in Aus­tria. In coop­er­a­tion with the Berlin agency Glut.Berlin he cre­at­ed a vot­ing app for the „Kul­tur- und Kreativpi­loten Deutsch­land“ (fund­ed by the Ger­man Fed­er­al Min­istry of Eco­nom­ics and Energy).

„Music is the reflec­tion from the deep­est part of our soul. It helps us to express our­selves in the most hon­est way. When we dance togeth­er with oth­er peo­ple, from dif­fer­ent cul­tures, it helps us to break all bound­aries and gives us the feel­ing of pure freedom.“

Tomasz

Head of International Communication

Tomasz did­n’t join our team by acci­dent. He feels and lives our mis­sion. He has just returned to Berlin after 6 excit­ing years spent in South Chi­na, where he has opened his own record stores and has been pro­mot­ing the DJ cul­ture like nobody else. A man of many tal­ents, Mas­ter of Cul­tur­al Stud­ies, a radio jour­nal­ist and a record label own­er, he has also been a club DJ him­self for almost 20 years tour­ing the world with his music.

Club music is undoubt­ed­ly a sig­nif­i­cant part of our glob­al cul­ture. Just like all the oth­er cul­tur­al ele­ments, it is learned, shared between gen­er­a­tions and cul­ti­vat­ed by peo­ple around the world. Not rec­og­niz­ing this is harm­ful to our col­lec­tive her­itage.

Quirin

Quirin

Chief Executive Officer

Raised in France, Quirin has lived in Berlin since 1993. He stud­ied at the Hum­boldt Uni­ver­si­ty, played soc­cer, found­ed the soc­cer club FC Karl­shorst 1995 e.V. and, with the Art­trak­tiv music house, he pro­vides hun­dreds of music rehearsal rooms and stu­dios for musi­cians. He is also active in wide range of dif­fer­ent areas, such as cul­ture, health, finance, pol­i­tics and biotech.

“Every city needs art and cul­ture to breathe. Pri­vate and pub­lic own­ers should be moti­vat­ed to cre­ate space for them. The leg­is­la­ture must under­stand that con­stant­ly stricter rules on the use of space are direct­ly opposed to art and cul­ture. This inevitably leads to high­er costs. A fun­da­men­tal rethink is needed.”

Yad

Model Builder & Donation Shop

Yad is orig­i­nal­ly from Kur­dis­tan. For him as an archi­tect and world her­itage stu­dent, Rave The Plan­et is just the right thing. Every­one has a voice here and the whole team works togeth­er to achieve the char­i­ta­ble goals.

„Haku­na ma Tech­no! We need more tech­no, because dance is also a sport!“
