Afrojack reveals own wax figure Madame Tussauds

CRSI8MaVEAAujgXOne of the world’s biggest DJ’s now has a permanent residency at Madame Tussauds! As of today, Afrojackwill be inaugurated in to Madame Tussauds and will be honored into the collection of wax figures.

Afrojack‘s break through was in 2008 with his first hit ‘Drop Down’, a collab with the Partysquad. Together with Eva Simons he entered the Brittish Top 40 in 2010 with their song ‘Take over Control’. In 2011 Afrojackwon a Grammy award with David Guetta for a remix of Madonna’s hit ‘Revolver’. In 2012 Afrojack won an EBBA-award and a ‘Silver Harp’. Many hits followed, including ‘Give me Evertything’, ‘Ten Feet Tall’, and ‘SummerThing!’. For this year (2015) he is nominated for two MTV European Music Awards.

The wax statue will be in the new DJ room. Visitors can go on stage with Afrojack and can take in the full experience of being in the DJ booth using special 3D glasses that will allow you to have an insight into the exclusive backstage life and what it feels like to stand next to him when he’s playing in front of thousands of fans. You will get to witness first hand the spectacular performance from last years The Flying Dutch Festival. With this experience in Madame Tussauds this is ‘as close as you can get’ withAfrojack!

Nick van de Wall aka Afrojack enthusiastically made time in his busy schedule for two extensive posing sessions – one full day in Holland and another full day in the studio’s in London. In a total of 5 months, 23 people worked on the statue to capture every detail. Hundreds of body measurements were taken to imitate his personality. The 2.07m tall figure was styled by Afrojack himself in his very own collection. In 2013 he already expanded on his love for fashion by teaming up with international fashion brand G-Star RAW to create his own collection which sold out in 48 hours.

Head of marketing, Annemiek Dolfin; ‘The impressive statue, the new setting and the new 3D experience makes the visit even more unique. The visitors in Madame Tussauds are the first worldwide to experience this. We’re very proud to add the statue of this DJ icon to our collection.’

Alongside headliner Afrojack, you can also find special guests DJ Tiesto and Armin van Buuren in the DJ experience.
