5 Acts You Can’t Miss at Movement Festival 2016

While the notion of the music festival has nearly become stale considering the rise and fall of innumerable festivals each year, Movement Electronic Music Festival has achieved major recognition as a festival in a league of its own. Having earned its stripes as one of the top events in the world, Movement saw an all-time high in its 2015 attendance with over 100,000 revelers descending upon Hart Plaza.

10 Must See Acts at Electric Daisy Carnival New York

Electric Daisy Carnival New York has undergone a number of major adjustments since its 2012 inception. What could often be referred to as “EDC New Jersey” frequently alternated between East Rutherford’s Met Life Stadium and Queens’ Citi Field, with the inaugural event drawing in about 45,000 revelers per day. It’s easy to say that the New York leg of the Las Vegas flagship festival was a natural success.

Prepare For The Uprising

On Friday, SoCal Bassheads everywhere will be in attendance for Uprising 2016 at the Hollywood Palladium. The lineup for this event is stacked with bass music favorites. Now, I’m particularly biased because one of my good friends and dubstep alum from the UK, P0gman, will be playing and I guarantee that you don’t want to miss his set.

UPHORIC-POST-BFD-1

This Bay Area Festival is a BFD

I’m really excited about this post because BFD presented by Live 105 was the very first festival I ever attended in 2007. BFD is a Bay Area music festival held at Shoreline Ampitheatre in Mountain View on Saturday, June 4th. I have tried to go every year since, even after moving away from the Bay Area because it’s such great time, the crowd is great, and I’ve never had any issues getting in and out of the venue.

The dreams of electronic music fans on the East Coast are about to come true today with the return of Dreamscape Festival in Darlington, Maryland hosted by Badass Raves.

UPHORIC-POST-ULTRA-EUROPE-1

Resistance Reveals Amazing Lineup for Destination Ultra

Ever since touching down in Croatia in 2013, Ultra Europe has set a new precedent for the international electronic music scene. Miami’s flagship festival brand crossed the pond in the hopes of global expansion, and in bringing a delectable array of cutting-edge artists and production to the Dalmatian Coast, Split has never quite been the same.

Boasting countless heavy-hitters like Avicii, Above & Beyond, Martin Garrix and Tiesto, as well as underground savants including Adam Beyer, Hot Since 82 and Jamie Jones, Creamfields is poised to be the one of (if not the) largest celebrations of 2016.
