Dreamstate SoCal festival – where future and dream are celebrated together

Written by Simona Kanapickaite on . Posted in Events, Home

Like the name defines itself, Dreamstate SoCal festival sounds like a dream to reach, especially for those who are not from United States. A mix of a dreamy vision for a new, different type festival, and the experience at the prime and biggest trance music event in USA, Dreamstate also implies a few tasks to be completed before getting there. It demands long flights, visas, some conversation at the departure airport before boarding, an interrogatory dialog with the U.S. border officers at the arrival airport, and finally your own transfers to San Bernardino city in California, where the festival took place for the third year.

 

When you can’t imagine festival without a Pre-Party: night before Transmission 2017

Written by Katrina Merca on . Posted in Events, Home, Live

While most of my friends were waiting for a premiere of new Transmission “The Spirit Of The Warrior”, I was waiting for the event which came before, and all thanks to my previous Transmission experience. It was my third time coming to Prague for this music event, and if I go back in time to 2015, it so was different than it was now, but every time it is something to remember.

In Trance We Trust festival – when music takes you million miles away from home just to be here

Written by Simona Kanapickaite on . Posted in Events, Home

Every mile on the road, every scenery through the bus window or just the afternoon silence over empty lands, every little German city and uncountable kilometers are taking you closer. Passing a bus stop, then Groningen and passengers coming on the bus, another stop, miles of land and vast waters like the sea on the side, the sun and the fields. Dutch eyes. Many kilometers and many landscapes. The heartbeat rising. Fragile and gentle nostalgia of Amsterdam that is alluring and flowing through all the senses.

When I subconsciously counted the last kilometers on the road to Holland’s capital, to the music temple for these days, the thrill of coming to the ADE week was covered up by the excitement for In Trance We Trust festival which took place the first evening.

Run, Trance lover, run! Lumi and ASOT in one day

It’s been already more than 2 weeks since ADE, and especially since the day Trance Family loved and hated at the same time because of two events happening at the same time – Luminosity (Lumi) and A State Of Trance (ASOT) ADE Specials. It was the moment when you had to pick the best one… But some decided not to choose and do both. Question is – was it a good idea? Let’s see!

The magical formula of trance euphoria world @ Luminosity pres. ADE night in Panama

Despite of the fact Luminosity and ASOT events took place the same day during the Amsterdam Dance Event week, and apart from the music lover’s heart battle on which one to attend, it’s such a blessing there have been more trance events this year during ADE. For me it was unquestioned  which one to choose for that night: last year’s Luminosity ADE event was 12 hours long, having big trance scene names as headliners, crazy party in front of the stage and so many legendary Djs to meet at one place. Besides, that night a new formula of trance music event was created and I had an emotional ‘explosion’ by the end of marathon, so there was more than enough reasons to go again.

‘Amsterdam likes it Pure’ or Pure Trance ADE 2017

Written by Katrina Merca on . Posted in Events, Home, Live

 

Last week Amsterdam hosted many music festivals, but the ‘purest’ one of the Trance related events was probably “Quest4Trance & Solarstone presents Pure Trance ADE 2017“, and not only because of the name, but also because of the music! In a few words: It was the most perfect event to finish ADE with, and even better intro to new Pure Trance Vol.6 compilation.

Next week Amsterdam will host one of the biggest electronic music events in the world, including festivals, conferences, playground etc., where you can hear and meet a lot of producers and DJs. As for Trance music lovers, we are interested in events of our genre, and there will be some every day. Who is ready for 4-5 days-in-a-row-party?

 

Markus Schulz Open To Close @ Avalon Hollywood (09/02/2017)

Written by Katrina Merca on . Posted in Events, Home, Live

Markus Schulz still sounds as one of the most popular and talented DJs and producers that Trance scene has had. His Open-To-Close (OTC) sets have been on high demand for a couple of years now, and many people have been praising them for long. I’m not a huge fan of Markus Schulz, but I’ve heard so much about his these sets, so as a real Trance music fan I simply couldn’t miss it when I got a chance!
