Now this is how you fight for your right to party. When the last Tidy Weekender came to a close in April, the UK-based organizers told fans that, if they wanted another one, it would have to be crowd-sourced by them. And those loyal hard house fans stepped up big style. Over £48,000 has been raised in approximately 24 hours in a Kickstarter campaign, just under six weeks in advance of the initial target that was set by the Tidy Boys, the crew behind the legendary hard dance event. With 40 days left in the campaign, this amount is sure to skyrocket making Tidy 20: The Weekender one special party that will coincide with their 20th anniversary.
The festival lineup for this Memorial Day Weekend couldn’t get any hotter. Not only are Movement Detroit, EDC New York, and Mysteryland taking place that weekend, but now Tampa’s Sunset Music Festival has also thrown its hat into the ring, and to entice you, they’ve booked Zedd, Benny Benassi, Hardwell, and Krewella to headline the event.
Yep, it’s time for another list, this one from the venerable DJ Mag, which has named its top 100 clubs from around the world. So what do you need to know offhand? The new entries onto the list include Hakkasan, Light, Zouk Kuala Lumpur, Sky Room, and a few more; a number of Ibiza clubs populate the top 20.

It seems these days that there are as many dance-music festivals around the world as there are dance-music artists. Every day a new one appears to crop up out of nowhere. But that’s nothing to complain about, obviously; it’s just that there’s so much to choose from that it can sort of make your head spin. Fortunately, Magnetic is doing its part, and has shared a list of 20 “Life Changing EDM Festivals From Around the World.” So what makes the cut?
First they got wet. Now Krewella is going hard with the bangin’ “Party Monster,” a dark, snare-heavy trap-meets-hardstyle sorta tune for which they’ve just released a video. A pretty off-the-cuff take, the “Party Monster” video sees the trio traversing dark hallways, hanging out on hilltops, and getting a little messy as the pummeling beats thunder in the background.
As you may already know, Mysteryland, which is said to be the world’s longest-running electronic music festival, will hit the US this spring, setting up shop for the first time in Bethel Woods, NY (the site of 1969′s Woodstock festival), from May 23-26. Over the last two decades, the Dutch brand has made it its mission to bring together underground up-and-comers with dance music’s more mainstream heavy-hitters for an event unlike any other—one that’s handily earned its now 21 years of existence.
Today, promoters ID&T announced the lineup for Mysteryland’s first-ever trip to the US, and it’s a stellar one. Kaskade, Steve Aoki, Fedde Le Grand, NERVO, Chase & Status, Booka Shade, Jesse Rose, Chris Liebing, Dillstradamus (that’s Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus), and about 240 more acts will perform over the course of these three days.
Wow. That headline’s a mouthful, with so much going on in the dance-music world today, so stop on in to for some big announcements, videos, and new music in this morning’s link dump.
Stereosonic, the roving festival that makes its way through five Australian cities, is off and running, having hit Sydney and Perth this past weekend. As expected, the 60,000 fans in Sydney alone were not disappointed, with huge sets from the likes of David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Empire of the Sun, and more.
Everyone loves a good Bieber scandal these days—and yes, we’ve got another one for ya. The latest allegations against the crazy young Canuck? That he “Will.i.am’d” Eric Prydz. Oh, there’s also a new tweet-heavy video from Krewella and Headhunterz, and a shorty documentary on Chuckie, so come on in and see what else is brewing.
