Written by Simona Kanapickaite on . Posted in Events, Home, Live, Online, Spotlight

The night right before the yearly A State Of Trance festival in Utrecht, Netherlands, I have been left without choice for several years in a row – Luminosity events is the only answer for this evening to kick off the weekend-long trance celebrations.

It’s that night in Amsterdam, at club Panama, when counting to the first hour of opening the door to the party you get the feeling you are missing something strong, deep and every second is so important to get there as soon as possible. Wherever you are, whatever you are enjoying, any company – your heart feels the door is open, and the start of Luminosity event as A State Of Trance preparty is a magnet shining over the city and attracts you to the one place and one direction.

45 minutes of hope – Emma Hewitt and Coyote Fly bring Trance back to Latvia

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

Last Saturday was a significant day for the Trance Family not just in Latvia, but also from the neighboring countries – Lithuania, Estonia and Belarus, as one of the most popular Trance vocalists Emma Hewitt was invited to perform at one of the best clubs in Riga – Coyote Fly. Even if for them it was a usual way to attract more new people, for some it turned into a dream coming true: meeting and listening to this angelic vocalist in person, even if it means travelling more than four hours for just a few hours of Trance music.

Invite-only ASOT preparty at Armada office’s club – the whole world turns into one place, one club, one event and one love for trance music

From train to train and all transport network left stretching behind, blue lighted Armada logo in the outskirts of Amsterdam was my only one lighthouse. It’s home of Armin van Buuren’s record label, A State Of Trance radio show and the place, where every trance and Armin’s fan dreams to get into and visit. That Friday, 16th of February, Armada HQ office opened the door for special Armada Invites event, dedicated to A State Of Trance 850 festival next day. The pre-party was invite-only and just a few lucky winners of A State Of Trance contest could attend it.

Even the time, while we were standing outside this famous building, gave us special and uplifting feeling. It was a calm Friday evening in Amsterdam under clear skies and the whole A State Of Trance festival weekend was about to proudly start. I’ve seen some familiar faces around from the trance music world, all standing in a correct row to Armada office door and waiting for the event for the books to begin. Quick and polite security check, me and Trance-Energy Radio resident DJ George Andreas put special golden artists wristbands on our hands, elegant girl takes our coats and between taking pictures while we are inside this dedicated to music place, we are ready to move the second floor, where the small, cozy and intimate club is located.

Interview with Tenishia – Maltese DJ who made trance music to become a part of European Capital of Culture opening celebration

Written by Simona Kanapickaite on . Posted in Events, Home, Live, Online, Spotlight

The 20th of January was such a significant day for Maltese DJ and producer Tenishia. His performance with Malta Philharmonic Orchestra has been added to official opening celebration of Valletta – European Capital of Culture 2018. TEMPO concert’s iconic tracks, starting from 70s, were performed live at the historic square in front of 5000 spectators. The new step for Tenishia, who had been raising this idea for years. A new step for trance music to be heard probably on the highest level it had reached.

Trance music sounds under Valletta night skies, in front of president’s palace, magically lighted up and covered in flying visuals, at historical square, the part of opening celebration which had attracted 100 000 visitors to golden, splendid and decorated Malta’s capital streets. The most beautiful sounds of ages. The dream that Tenishia has invited to.

Trance Xplosion Reborn – moments, emotions and destination that will be missed too much

Written by Simona Kanapickaite on . Posted in Events, Home, Live

We, the first departing Lithuanians, met excited at an almost empty bus station during the late evening to travel to Poland, to an event we had been waiting for since the shining lineup was released. Gdansk and Sopot shone like the faraway trance destination we were heading to.

From the early arrival to Gdansk to the extended city weekend, for us, it was magic. Whether we were lonely tourists at the center in the dark morning, between decorated streets or at dawn walking along the river, or when we started small home party. We were waiting for our trance friends to join this weekend experience group by group – the Trance Xplosion Reborn event had attracted the biggest number of Lithuanians arriving to party this year, even some flying here from abroad and trance friends coming from Belarus.

When a promise leads to the great night – Grotesque Indoor Festival 300

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

After over 2 years, dreams came true: I finally got the chance to come for Grotesque Indoor Festival 300 (GIF300)! If a few years ago I was just curious about it, it wasn’t until last year that I promised myself (and also to RAM, in fact), that I will make it to the next edition – and I did it! Its super friendly atmosphere, that surprised me, and intriguing (also live) ‘decorations’, which make this event quite unique, compared to other Trance events I’ve visited. But what comes next?

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.

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

Written by Katrina Merca on . Posted in Events, Live

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!

‘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.
