With great music comes great responsibility—to throw equally explicit fiestas! Miami’s Ultra Music Fest (March 23rd-25th) is the upper echelon of EDM musical events; commandeering the city in one awesome sweep of bass, illicit paraphernalia, and righteous tuneage! Headlined by the maestros of the scene—Tiesto, Skrillex, Avicii, Afrojack, Benny Benassi, and David Guetta (to name but a few)—Ultra Music fest is the one stop shop for musical nirvana.
For those in the market for a riotous night of luscious tunes and debacherous endeavors, look no further than Amnesia’s “Weekly Magic Circus Party." This week’s installment features prominent, Aria-Award Nominated DJ Tommy Trash spinning hot fire that’s destined to incite boundless pleasure in the aural orifices. Reigning electro dance authority in his native Australia, this recent import has set his sights on global domination one venue at a time—seize the chance to be a part of the movement!
Musings have run rampant the past few days concerning the potential unveiling of EDCNYC (Electric Daisy Carnival). Preliminary sources are claiming the fest is indeed stopping our way the weekend of May 18th. Metlife Stadium (New Jersey) is the supposed staging ground for the three day cacophony of electro/dub madness.
If last year’s line-up is any indication, electro posterboys David Guetta and Skrillex could potentially grace the stage once again. EDC typically amasses a crowd over a 100k strong, so come May, the bass drops could potentially be reverberating through us all.
Only time shall tell, but an official announcement seems imminent—as the proposed date is less than 3 months away!
