Tomorrowland, the world’s leading electronic dance music festival, has just revealed plans to expand into South America with its first-ever Tomorrowland Brasil. The Brazilian edition of the massive outdoor festival will be held over the weekend of May 1st to May 3rd, 2015 in Itu, Brazil, a municipality of São Paolo.
Welcome to our manic Monday edition of the Morning Roundup. Today, we’ve got all Tomorrowland, all the time with a great story recap of all the rave action, photo sets from both days, and live DJ sets from the entire weekend that went off big-time. Right this way for our complete wrap-up.
Don’t mess with Texas, especially when the party is rockin’. The fourth annual Disco Donnie presents Sun City Music Festival will be taking place over the weekend of August 30-31st in El Paso, Texas. Headliners including Martin Garrix, Tiësto, David Guetta, Above & Beyond, and Showtek will join 30 other acts scheduled to perform across the two-day, three-stage festival.
Prepare for the madness. TomorrowWorld’s first lineup announcement is here — and it’s huge. Avicii, Bassnectar, David Guetta, Skrillex, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, Diplo, Kaskade, Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero, Richie Hawtin, Steve Aoki, Tiësto, and Zedd are among the festival’s announced headliners, while countless other acts will also touch down in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia (southwest of Atlanta) for the second stateside incarnation of Tomorrowland on September 26-28, 2014. Up-and-comers Andrew Rayel, Dyro, The Chainsmokers, and TJR are also on the bill, alongside established names like John Digweed, Ferry Corsten, and Laidback Luke.
Seeking a friendly electro-house soundtrack for the end of the world? David Guetta has got you covered. Hot on the heels of joining forces at Ultra Music Festival, Guetta, Dutch production duo Showtek, and Australian vocalist Vassey have just delivered a new comic-inspired lyric video for their Beatport #1 hit “Bad.” The track is currently listed at #3 on the Beatport Top 100.
While David Guetta is without a doubt one of modern dance music’s biggest stars, it’s not terribly well known that the guy was a serious house head back in the day, starting some of Paris’ first house nights, playing host to Daft Punk’s earliest sets, and mixing up techno, hip-hop, funk, and disco long before most of dance music’s current crop of fans were even born. So, fittingly, when he was in Chicago last week for a gig at the city’s Aragon Ballroom, he let loose with a big dedication to Frankie Knuckles, who died earlier last week, during his set.
David Guetta, Showtek, and Vassy have just taken the #1 position on our Beatport Top 100 with their track “Bad.”
Congratulations to David Guetta as his remix of Avicii’s “Addicted to You” just hit the #1 spot in our Beatport Top 100.
