The Dreamforce 2013 website officially went live a couple of months ago and the buzz around one of the most highly anticipated events of the year is in full swing! Anticipation for another amazing event is also high but there’s one question on everybody’s lips; who’s going to perform at the Dreamforce Gala?
Grassroots and Humble Beginnings
Dreamforce gets bigger and better every year, and Salesforce has raised the bar higher than ever over the past few of years with gala performances from massive names such as The Foo Fighters, Stevie Wonder and Metallica.
Salesforce celebrated its 10th Dreamforce last year with a surprise appearance from rap legend MC Hammer and an amazing performance from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. We had to fight to get near the stage but my colleague and I managed to get close, which was totally worth it, even though we lost another colleague in the crowd – don’t worry, we found him safe and sound at the bar a few hours later!
Raising the Bar
After the success of Dreamforce 2012, Salesforce are pulling out all the stops for this year’s Gala – firstly by moving it to a dedicated venue, the AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. If moving the Gala to a much larger arena isn’t a big enough statement, the word on the grape vine is that Marc Benioff may have secured The Rolling Stones as this year’s band! Of course with no official announcement from Salesforce this is still very much speculation, but whoever they choose, it’s got to be another big name.
Personally, I would love to see Radiohead at Dreamforce this year, so I open the question to the 123,000 estimated attendees for Dreamforce 2013:
Following the phenomenal success of the boozy networking event we held alongside Dreamforce last year, we’ve decided to do it all again. Just enter your email address over here for a chance to be on the guest list. You’d be crazy not to!
