Soccer Worldcup Opening Party

Last weeks Friday was the opening of the soccer worldcup 2006. Since Germany is the host of this tournament and our team has the honour to do the opening game, it went without saying, that organized an event to celebrate this. First element was an human soccer tournament. I was responsible to operate the sound equipment for this event and to do some DJing. Somehow the DJing went much easier than I thought. During the Human Soccer cup I had some sampler CD with the best soccer songs running in a loop and later the time were I could play some party music was greatly reduced. First it was reduced by the decision to broadcast the second soccer match with sound, and second by some neighbours who had complained to the police about too loud music. It was also quite easy to find some songs that suited for the masses. Requests to play Oliver Pocher’s “Schwarz und Weiß” and “54,74,90,2006” by the Sportfreunde Stiller hit me during the whole event. Although people found various reasons to complain afterwards, like the screen which was a little too much sunlight until 7pm, or some fans which thought they could watch the game while having a picnic (and complaining about other who stood up), I regard the whole event as a success.
