WOMAD UK- Asian Dub Foundation to headline Thursday night

We are thrilled to welcome back Asian Dub Foundation to the stage at Charlton Park to open the festival on Thursday night. The band never fail to get the crowd going with their unique sound, offering a combination of hard jungle rhythms, dub bass lines, industrial, energetic punk rock guitars, sitar and haunting sounds sampled from traditional Indian music, supported by militant, fast and burning rap-ragga lyrics! Having racked up nearly 20 years of raging against oppression and injustice, the band are recognised as one of the best live acts in the world with their explosive and inventive sets. Those who come in early to the festival on a Thursday ticket are in for a real treat as the band are on stellar form due to the return of mastermind musicians such as bassist and founder DR DAS, the Jamaican singer Ghetto Priest, and with the new entry of flute/beatboxer Nathan Lee – a true phenomenon not to be missed. A sure-fire hit with the WOMAD crowd! Watch this space for more line-up announcements coming soon… – See more at: http://womad.co.uk/asian-dub-foundation-return-womad-headline-thursday-night/#sthash.KZWU5CN9.dpuf

RICHIE HAWTIN, JACKMASTER & HOT SINCE 82 ADDED TO THE EXIT FESTIVAL MTS DANCE ARENA LINE-UP!

Richie Hawtin, one of the greatest artists of all time will perform at mts Dance Arena at Exit Festival on Sunday, 10 July. This will be the global premier of his completely new and revolutionary live performance. The techno pioneer and icon, responsible for the popularization of electronic music and the genre’s numerous technological innovations, has been collaborating with Exit’s production team since last October on all creative and technical details, which will soon be announced on a global level. The arrival to the world famous mts Dance Arena on 9 July has also been confirmed by the British DJ sensation Hot Since 82, while the lineup for Friday 8 July has been strengthened by the artist featured on Resident Advisor’s top five, the Scottish DJ and producer Jackmaster. The next generation of popular producers will be represented by London’s club duo MANT. Richie Hawtin is the key figure of modern electronic music, a true innovator and the one of the founders of the central techno label Minus, but also legendary Plus 8. In 2014, Hawtin resurrected his famous alter-ego Plasticman and released a new album – “EX”, which also became his first release since 2003. A true revolutionary, Hawtin is responsible for the popularization of techno music, as well as the development of tech tools used by contemporary leading DJ superstars, and has, together with the company “Allen & Heath”, recently created a new type of mixer which many believe will cause yet another revolution on the DJ scene. Headlining on of the biggest electronic stages – Daley Padley, better known as Hot Since 82, won the hearts of the underground club scene with his debut release for “Noir Music”, with Mixmag Magazine describing his progression in the house scene as “meteoric”. Jackmaster, an unbelievably talented Scottish house producer, took the global scene by storm, and positioned himself as one of the leading DJs on a truly competitive scene, surpassing on Resident Advisor’s top list some of the biggest stars of all time. The Scottish master, whose name is inspired by the “jacking” school of Chicago-style house sound, will bring to the mts Dance Arena a colorful set, containing everything from forgotten classics to the latest club hits. mts Dance Arena’s international lineup is almost completed, with some more surprises around the corner, for its greatest edition yet! From 7 to 10 July, The Fortress will feature some of the best DJ sets by world leaders of the electronic scene: Dave Clarke, Dimitri Vegas&Like Mike, Disciples, Feder, Hernan Cattaneo b2b Henry Saiz, Hot Since 82, Jackmaster, James Zabiela, MANT, Marco Carola, Mind Against, Nicky Romero, Nina Kraviz, Richie Hawtin, Robin Shulz, Sam Feldt and Solomun.

8 Amazing Experiences Guaranteed To Make You Fall In Love with EXIT Festival

From a fairytale venue to parties ‘till dawn, this is why EXIT festival won so many awards. Held from 7 – 10 July, it’s nothing short of spectacular: 1.A magical venue: Petrovaradin Fortress The fortress has that magical fairytale atmosphere that gets people hooked and relaxed. It’s arguably the best festival venue according to dozens of quotes from its top performers and global media covering Exit since its founding 16 years ago. Not only are the stages well sonically isolated, but everything is close by so you don’t have to walk that much or wait in long cues. This Southeastern European gem is an oldie but goldie. The first cornerstone was built in 324 years ago and the fortress was upgraded over time. In its heyday, it was the central place where the Austrian-Turkish war ended, and the battle resembled a scene from the movie 300: about Austrian 76,000 troops at the fortress versus the 150,000 Turkish troops. Spoiler alert: the Austrians won. Today, the fortress is a much calmer affair. Until those special 4 days in July arrive. About 200.000 music lovers storm its gates for the best festival experience in Europe. There was even an episode on Ghost Hunters International that went down into the fortress’ catacombs. Spoiler alert: it’s not haunted. 2.The Iconic, Historic, Unapologetic: Dance Arena and The Sunrise The world famous Dance Arena is hallowed ground. Waiting for the sunrise at the colossal trench is described by many as the most endorphin-inducing rush they’ve experienced ever. And that’s quite an achievement. This is EXIT’s second biggest stage, but the passion of its diehard fans is rivaled by none. The trick with Dance Arena is that it closes last. At 8am! Yes, that’s 8am! Literally, this is the last-standing stage at EXIT, where the party starts at the evening, and ends in the morning light well after the last day ended. People who love it, REALLY LOVE IT. Dance Arena had some of the most explosive acts by world famous performers, including: Carl Cox, David Guetta, Richie Hawtin, Martin Garrix, Laurent Garnier, Underworld, Hardwell, Disclosure, Dixon, Loco Dice, Carl Craig, Green Velvet, John Digweed, Fatboy Slim, Dubfire, David Morales, Deep Dish, Chromeo… The main acts for EXIT 2016 revealed for now are: Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Nina Kraviz Marco Carola, Nicky Romero, Mind Against, Robin Schulz, Solomun, Dave Clarke, Disciples… 3.Soak your feet at the campsite beach – in a good way! The camp is located on the Danube river. That means sand beach, water mixed with generous amounts of sun in summer. Imagine waking up late in the day, getting out of your tent, and after a few steps you’re already cooling your worn-out-from-dancing feet in the smooth Danube? Yeah. It’s as good as it sounds. 4.Chilled walks at the Danube quay Again with the Danube. But you’ll be hard pressed to find any better place to take a relaxing walk and enjoy the view of the fortress. The quay becomes electrifyingly good during EXIT, with a lot more folks walking down Novi Sad’s lush scenery. This is the best place to get a feel for Novi Sad’s locals – sit back on a bench, open up a beverage, and enjoy people-watching. 5.Cafes turn into mini-oasis during the day When you wake up after a good night at EXIT, there are a million cafes in Novi Sad, ready to welcome you home. Coffee culture is sacrosanct in Novi Sad, and you can find a good brew anywhere. Sip on a cup in the city centre garden cafes and enjoy the cool breeze and shade. 6.Belgrade – visit the New York of the Balkans It’s closer than you think. Belgrade is Serbia’s capital city and many reffered to it as Balkan’s New York, due to its vibrant lifestyle, and with it come all the clubs, culture, and monuments. This is your best bet to visit Belgrade, since it’s only about an hour away. Plus, train returning tickets are around 4€ so that’s great too. 7 Rakija – Connecting people Forget plain Vodka (which is made of potatoes) because you’ll fall in love with the Serbian spirits made from local fruits, called rakija. There are multiple varieties, but all promise the same: they all have a delicious scent but are as strong as a frenzied, rabid mother bear protecting her baby cubs. Drink responsibly and don’t forget to intake plenty of water along. 8.EXIT on the sea (and best European beach) – Sea Dance Festival Sea Dance festival is EXIT’s sister festival at, you guessed it, sea! Held at the breathtaking Jaz beach in Montenegro, proclaimed as the Best European Beach by the Lonely Planet, it is a long turquouise cove with plenty of sand and tiny pebbles with a Blue Flag for its fine, clean sea and all the necessary facilities. Sea Dance is a true summer festival with lots of sunshine, warm seas and the finest acts you can get. The best part? It’s included in the EXIT Magic Adventure package! You go to EXIT, have fun, then two days later hop down to Sea Dance for vacation. It’s an ideal way to spend your summer, at this one-of-a-kind festival holiday. The EXIT Magic Adventure 2016 lineup so far includes: Ellie Goulding, Wiz Khalifa, Bastille, The Vaccines, Tinariwen, Sigma, Stormzy, Modestep DJ set, Cock Sparrer, Anti-Flag, At the Gates, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Disciples, Wilkinson DJ Set feat. MC AD-APT, Solomun, Nina Kraviz, James Zabiela, Nicky Romero, Marco Carola, Hurts, Skrillex, Zomboy, My Nu Leng, Lost Frequencies, with more acts coming up soon.

Secret-Solstice-Festival-Iceland-MUSIC0416

This is the Most Expensive Music Festival Ticket in the World

Reykjavik’s Secret Solstice Festival features everything from gourmet food to a concert in a volcano, and for a cool $1 million, you can do it all. So what exactly does a $1 million music festival ticket get you? In the case of Reykjavik’s Secret Solstice Festival, your adventure begins with a private jet for you and five of your friends from any destination on Earth. Once in Iceland, your personal driver takes you to a six-room villa that you and your friends will call home for the next seven days. Included in the accommodations: a 24/7 personal assistant, a personal chef to cook up an Icelandic feast, and a private concert just for you. At the festival, your ticket (hand engraved on Icelandic lava rock, naturally) will give you access to several VIP experiences. You’ll get to watch bands like Radiohead and Of Monsters and Men from a private viewing area on the side of the stage, have the chance to run into Thom Yorke at the artists-only bar, gorge yourself on premium food and drink, and even have access to those enticing off-limits areas of the festival site (with a chaperone, but still!). And if you’d like to meet any of the artists playing the festival, all you have to do is ask. The price will also get you tickets to two of the most exclusive shows in the world—the world’s first concert inside a volcano and Inside the Glacier, a sold-out party buried under Langjökull glacier. The golden ticket will also let you explore Iceland from air, ground, and sea. There’s a Secret Solstice 2016’s Midnight Sun Boat Party, private helicopter, and airplane tours of Iceland’s natural wonders, a private concert in a lava field, a glacier walk, a snowmobile ride, a private whale and dolphin watching tour, and anything else your heart desires, but can you actually think of anything else? Oh, right. No trip to Iceland is complete without a dip in a geothermal pool. Ticketholders will also get the world famous Blue Lagoon to themselves for a night of skinny-dipping in the rejuvenating waters. This isn’t the first time that the Secret Solstice Festival has vied for the title of most expensive festival ticket on Earth. In 2015 they offered a $200,000 festival ticket for two people. It’s hard to imagine how they will top this next year. Secret Solstice Festival runs from June 16 to June 19 in Reykjavik.
