It’s time for another euphoric trip down the rabbit hole with Nocturnal Wonderland Southern California.
After last year’s first SoCal edition of the festival proved highly successful, Nocturnal Wonderland will return to San Bernardino on September 21 and 22 with a lineup that will make your head spin.
The roster for the two-day event is eargasmic, jam-packed with melodic sounds from more than 100 different artist and performers, mind-blowing art installations and explosive fireworks.
Electric Zoo may think it has the market cornered for Labor Day Weekend festivities, but music mogul Jay-Z has other plans in mind. Last week, the rapper/producer announced his Made in America multi-genre music festival for the same weekend, to take place on the Ben Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia. And with a lineup ranging from classic rock to electronic, what other place would be fit to host the festival besides the “City of Brotherly Love.”
The festival's first day of performers consists of Jay-Z, Skrillex, Miike Snow, Calvin Harris, Maybach Music Group (Feat. Rick Ross, Wale and Meek Mill), Passion Pit, Gary Clark Jr., D'Angelo, Dirty Projectors, Janelle Monae, Prince Royce, Michael Woods, Otto Knows and Savoy.
Electric Beach is bringing in the big guns this weekend. The infamous Saturday night hot-spot will host Sebastien Drums and Chad Stark as headliners, spinning away a night of pure musical bliss.
International DJ Sebastien Drums is no newcomer to the stage. The French house-master is best known for his mega-hit “My Feelings For You,” coproduced by the one and only Avicii.
Joining Drums is Chad Stark, the recent University of Michigan grad whose upbeat, progressive sounds has led him to open for big-name DJs like Tiesto and Martin Solveig.
Together, the two DJs are sure to spin a killer set at the sleek and sexy Santos Party House. Check out their mixes below:
After Pacha NYC released a cryptic set of clues about its upcoming concert last week, Steve Angello confirmed that he and his label Size Records will play a five-hour EDM showcase at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park on September 22nd.
According to an article in Rolling Stone, "Size in the Park" will feature the some of the label's best DJs like AN21 and Max Vangeli, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano, and Third Party.
"I would never have dreamt about playing Central Park," Angello told Rolling Stone. "I saw the subject line in my email – it said 'Size Matters at Central Park.' I didn't even read the email. I just replied 'Yes, I'll take it.'"The announcement followed a weekend of mysterious messages from Pacha via Twitter and Instagram.
After Kaskade became the first EDM artist to solo-headline and sell out The Staples Center in LA last week, the venue is hotter than ever. So it’s no surprise that Tiesto is following suit, announcing his concert for October 20th, 2012.
The venue holds just over 18,000 people, less than the 26,000 fans who poured into the neighboring Home Depot Center in masses to see Tiesto last year at the largest single DJ event in US history. Nonetheless, we can expect yet another sold-out show from the incredibly talented producer.
Can someone please tell me I wasn’t the only music-loving loser who sat with my Macbook in hand all weekend, eyes glued to the Tomorrowland 2012 live stream?
The festival that puts Ultra to shame, Tomorrowland offers the best electronic music acts in the world, performing on the most intricately-designed sets in the festival industry. And with a flawless live stream showing us what we were missing as we mulled about our average weekends, it was torture to stymie our urges of hopping on a plane and jetsetting to Belgium.
Clips from the live stream are rapidly making their ways around the internet, but here’s Joonbug’s pick for our favorite Tomorrowland moment - when brother headliners Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike's grandparents made an appearance to cheer on their boys:

Thomas Shaw and Ryan Henderson, the members of Project 46, have created a progressive house sound all their own.

Most 18-year-olds keep themselves busy applying to college, surfing the internet, and hanging out with other normal teenagers. But Hugo Pierre Leclercq, better known as Madeon, is far from your average teen. The production prodigy began composing music at the young age of 11, and since has taken the world by storm with his electropop masterpieces.
Madeon has come a long way from his 2010 hit remix of Pendulum’s “The Island.” This year has been huge for the French wonderboy, with the ubersuccessful releases of spring’s “Icarus” and summer’s “Finale.”
