Drake has accomplished a lot in his career as a rapper so far, breaking records left and right. Therefore, it comes as no surprise when Drake mentions someone outside the music world. In fact, Drake’s recently transformed theme park finally has an opening date now.
In a surprising turn of events, an abandoned fairground project from 1987 in Hamburg, Germany, is set to make a grand return this December in Los Angeles thanks to Drake. Titled “Luna Luna: A Forgotten Fantasy,” the exhibition is the brainchild of Drake and his entertainment company, DreamCrew.
Originally announced last year, the exhibition will showcase the imaginative rides, games, and attractions envisioned by over thirty renowned artists, including luminaries like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Salvador Dalí, and Keith Haring.
The Luna Luna website provides a glimpse into the project’s origins, describing how artist and curator André Heller brought together a cadre of visionaries in the summer of 1987 to design an extraordinary fairground in Hamburg. Despite a failed attempt at reopening in San Diego during the 1990s, the Luna Luna park attractions, forgotten in a Texas warehouse, found a new champion in Drake. His acquisition through DreamCrew aimed to revitalize and reintroduce the artistic vision of the original project to a new audience.
While the rides themselves will remain non-functional, the reconstructed Luna Luna park will be transformed into an immersive art exhibit. Visitors can expect to marvel at works by Salvador Dalí, David Hockney, and other influential artists.
“Luna Luna: The Forgotten Fantasy” will be something worth visiting for Drake fans, if nothing else. Early ticket access can be secured through the provided link on the Luna Luna website, so fans can grab their tickets as soon as possible.
