  1. 12. Who sleeps at a festival anyhow?

    HALFWAY ALONG the ridge we found the end of the camps and claimed our kingdom. I was glad because my arms were tired and because my suitcases - yes, suitcases - elicited weird looks from the other Gatherers. Joseph and Tim set about putting up their tents. Sam and I sat on the grass and shared a joint in the sun. It wasn't long before others arrived. First in were Darius and Kathy in his beat-up, mustard-coloured station wagon. They roared up to the tents, handbraked, slid a few feet, and then almost before the wagon had stopped moving, as it was still sliding, even, they bounded out with that yes-we're-finally-here energy we all felt. With his gold-and-black mane pulled into pigtails and wearing a lemon T-shirt with BMXcellent across the front, Darius rocked with his usual restless intensity; he always gave the impression of being fifteen minutes late. "Bloody hell," he declared, "how was that queue?" "Ah, it was madness," answered Tim, practicing his poiing, chains and ribbons swirling about his body. "But at least you weren't in a taxi van." Darius snickered at this. I suspect it was the reason he'd mentioned the queue. The taxi van had been his idea. His girlfriend Kathy shook her blonde dreadlocks and rolled her eyes. "Ignore him, I do," she said, coming over to give Sam and I a hug. "How did you guys get here then?" "A family in a camper van gave us a lift," I replied. "Jeez, that was lucky," Darius said coming over to hug us also. "Otherwise it would have been a bloody long walk." He snickered again. We offered Darius the joint and he puffed away and unpacked. Soon he'd unloaded a two-man tent Sam and I would be sharing for the Gathering’s duration. "Here you go lads, have fun." Having never put up a tent I eyed it dubiously, as only a man bringing suitcases to an outdoor festival could. I threw out a feeler to Sam, "What do you reckon bro?" Sam however had never put up a tent either, and, unbeknownst to me, had hooked a quarter trip earlier in the day with Joseph. Still, he sounded confident. "I think we’re intelligent guys, Izz. It can’t be that hard." Reassured, we set to it with all the will and logical might we, weed and LSD could muster. Half an hour, several conversations, one dirt drawn diagram and two arguments later, we’d put up something . . . it just didn’t resemble anything our friends had erected. While theirs were taunt and proudly rippled, ours bowed in on one side and was a sort of misshapen splat, a sort of canvas sneeze. We stood back in thoughtful silence. "Good enough?" I finally asked casting a sideways glance at Sam. "Good enough," he replied in words immemorial. "Who sleeps at a festival anyhow?" * * * * This blog is a story. Each post picks up from the last.

  5. Amsterdam – Rumor has it elrow is moving to the capital of the Netherlands for their first festival. Elrow’s first ever show outside Spain was at 18Hrs Festival near Amsterdam. Since then there have been all kinds of elrow events in the Netherlands (and the world). From huge warehouse editions to smalle festival hostings and now maybe their own festival. Although it are still rumors, the sources who told us about these plans are reliable enough to write this short notice. We’ve asked elrow for an official statement but got no response. We will keep you posted as soon as we get any confirmation / official press release. The post Elrow is planning on doing a festival in Amsterdam next year appeared first on Techno Moves.

  7. Festivals can feel like a utopian bubble where nothing goes wrong, but given the number of productions each year and the logistics involved, sometimes the margin for human error proves too much. Transmission Festival is the latest example of what can go wrong when all seems right. Just after a stunning visual moment happens via strobes, LED walls, and lasers, fireworks launch off the stage landing in the crowd and not passing over them. Luckily, no severe injuries or deaths were reported. A video shows the malfunction within the arena.

  8. This month, the Electronic Music Conference will hit Sydney for another year. With artists like Andrew Weatherall and thought leaders like Amsterdam Night Mayor Mirik Milan locked in to appear, EMC 2017 promises to be two of the biggest days on the local dance music calendar. Topics covered in this year’s program include everything from the future of radio to creating safe spaces and how the electronic music industry handles mental health. Also on the agenda is the future of Australia’s festival scene — in the session Our Festival Scene’s Homegrown Heroes, EMC will turn the spotlight on three operators who’ve created festival brands that have succeeded either here in Australia or abroad. As a taster, we hit up EMC’s panellists — Falcona’s Chris Murray, Andrew Li from Singaporean festival powerhouse Zouk and For The Love’s Ben Tucker — to find out what makes or breaks a festival, and what the future of partying in Australia looks like. Here’s what they had to say. What works for Australian festivals but doesn’t work overseas? “Shoeys work pretty bloody well here but lack the same ‘impact’ overseas. As does domestic talent on major festival bills. We’ve all noticed how much this is increasing as Aussie punters realise we don’t need to look overseas — we make some of the best music in the world, particularly per capita, across all genres and we’re very, very happy to let that be known by way of our ticket buying patterns.” — Chris Murray, Falcona What makes a great festival headliner? “Timing. It’s everything. Obviously it’s different for every festival, but generally speaking: they can’t be too big, they can’t be too small, they can’t be too legacy, they can’t be too expensive, they can’t be too off-brand, they can’t be too off-cycle, they can’t be too controversial, they can’t be too chill. So yeah, basically anything but that.” — Chris Murray, Falcona “While popularity is important, I think it is also equally important for a great festival headliner to also be a great performer. A great festival headliner knows how to command the energy of his or her crowd and knows how to create moments. This, essentially, is what makes his or her set memorable.” — Andrew Li, Zouk “Being current and, most importantly, a great performer. When you’re headlining with an artist that naturally speaks to the hearts and minds of your audience because they’ve connected with them through an incredible show and performance previously, your job is already half done.” — Ben Tucker, For The Love What advantages do homegrown festival brands have over international brands? “Well, the Viet Cong amazed the world by digging in and eventually winning even though they were outnumbered and outgunned by the Yanks — because they knew their own backyard better than anyone else possibly could. “But the imported festivals must have paid close attention to this and learnt that the only way to do it is to partner with a strong local promoter. The question remains — will a cashed up foreign festival brand ever attract the same kind of organic loyalty that an event like Meredith has built over twenty years? The foreign electronic ones have certainly all failed, let’s see how the indie and metal ones go.” — Chris Murray, Falcona “While Australian festivals may not have as much of a multicultural or diverse dynamic, where they shine is in the fact that they are very in tune with the Australian audiences and how they experience an event. “I’ve noticed some of the bigger festival brands trying to establish their roots in the Australian market miss the mark or attendees subconsciously associating all that comes with these international brands that they hear about or see online, not play out the way they envisaged as that international formula isn’t able to be replicated.” — Ben Tucker, For The Love “The biggest advantage is that you understand your people best, and are able to have the creative control to curate a festival that is unique in its own identity for them. It gives you the opportunity to pioneer and innovate. With big international festival brands, more often than not, it’s just about replicating a set formula. ” — Andrew Li, Zouk Do you think the future of Australia’s festival scene is mostly homegrown events, or mostly international ones? “I try not to play guessing games. I prefer to sledge from the sidelines. I will say that it would be a shame for our homegrown events to all die off to the foreign invading hordes. But perhaps that’s why the super festivals are not working and the local boutique ones are: they all have a certain je ne sais quoi, don’t you think? “That being said I am all for competition: the cornerstone of capitalism! It will result in an improved offering and experience for attendees and let’s be honest, it keeps us on our toes!” — Chris Murray, Falcona “I think homegrown festivals will always have a special place in Australians hearts for the fact they are built specifically for their interests and how they enjoy experiencing them. There’s also a sense of pride and something special about seeing one of our incredible homegrown producers bring the house down on home soil that cant be beaten.” — Ben Tucker, For The Love — Electronic Music Conference 2017 visits Sydney’s Redfern for a two-day program seeing international music leaders and industry experts appear across an array of panels, talks, workshops, parties and masterclasses on November 29-30.

  11. Boutique Victorian festival earthcore has come under fire from a number of its headlining acts for allegedly failing to pay them for their appearance in the lead up to the event. Tel Aviv duo Coming Soon and trance act Phaxe were both due to appear at the festival’s flagship event in Elmore this November — and at earthcore’s additional events in Brisbane, Sydney, and Perth — but have now announced via Facebook that they will no longer be playing. “We want to let you know that we have cancelled earthcore Festival this year,” Coming Soon wrote. “The reason for the cancellation is because the owner of this festival didn’t pay us until now, and didn’t even book a flight…[This is] after many threats of cancelling us if we will not be patient. “We have to mention that [we’ve never been] treated like that ever in our 15 years in the industry and we will never work with this promoter ever again. We kindly ask all our fans who buy tickets to see us live on one of this festivals to request a full ticket refund…we refused other gigs in order to make earthcore, and we lost a lot of money from this issue. ” Read More Adelaide's Flux Festival, headlined by Deadmau5, has been cancelled   The duo also claimed that there are “more than 10 other artists” on the bill who are set to pull out of the festival, having faced similar issues with the promoter. They also alleged that the owner knows “he cannot pay all the artists” but is using “their names in order to gain more ticket sales.” They promised to publish their conversation with the promoter shortly. “We wish all the people that do go to one of this festival very much luck and hope they will enjoy this budgetless and multi-problems festival,” they signed off. “Dont expect it to be what you [think].” This directly contradicts an admin post on the earthcore QLD Facebook page, in which organisers claimed that Coming Soon and fellow act Bliss pulled out because they were “double booked”. Danish artist Phaxe also cited payment issues as the reason for his cancellation, writing on Facebook: “We are sorry to announce, that Phaxe…has to cancel the Australia tour for Earthcore, as the organizer did not fulfill the terms of our agreement.” Read the full posts from Coming Soon and Phaxe below, at the time of writing no other artists have officially announced their cancellation. Earthcore is due to take place between November 23 and 26 in Elmore; inthemix has contacted earthcore founder Spiro Boursine for comment.

  12. Next weekend was meant to see the debut of Adelaide’s massive new dance event Flux Festival, headlined by acts like superstar producer Deadmau5 and Aussie favourite What So Not. But according to their website and to emails sent out to ticket holders last night, the festival has now been cancelled. “Please be advised that the Flux Festival on 1 December at Bonython Park has been cancelled,” their website reads. “All ticket holders will receive a full refund from Ticketmaster.” Other artists on the bill included Dutch duo Showtek, Fedde Le Grand, LDRU, and Melbourne’s Dom Dolla. No reason has been given for the cancellation. All of Flux’s social media pages have now been deleted, and Deadmau5 has confirmed on Twitter that the show will not go ahead.

  13. Barcelona’s Sónar Festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary next year in extraterrestrial fashion by attempting to contact intelligent life with a musical transmission. “Sónar Calling GJ273b,” as it has been dubbed, marks the first communication ever to be sent to a nearby potentially habitable exoplanet. 33 10-second pieces of music have been specially curated for Sónar’s transmission aimed at Luyten’s Star b —12.4 light-years from Earth — chosen for its potential of the Earth receiving a transmission back in 25 years. Contributing artists include the likes of Nina Kraviz, Richie Hawtin, Modeselektor, Jean-Michel Jarre, the Black Madonna, and more. The first transmission to Luyten Star b was sent back in October, and a second transmission is currently slated for April 2018. Sónar is even going so far as to invite its audience to take part in its endeavor, opening itself up to submissions of original compositions. Three submissions will be included in the upcoming April transmission. Those who are interested can learn more about it on their website.

  16. Borrowing the aesthetic of Pokémon trading cards, creative Brenton Norton has created a series of dance music edition Pokémon-style trading cards. The cards denote different levels, ranging from Basic to Stage 2 status. A stack intended to capture dance music culture in card form, the trading cards feature a range of DJs, electronic festivals, and festival archetypes, including Bassnectar as a Stage 1 card, Okeechobee Music Festival as a Basic card, and PotHead as a Stage 2 card. While the cards are not currently available for purchase, rendering their ability to dethrone ‘kandi’ as the universal festival trading currency ineffectual for now, the cards are impeccably made.

  19. One of the biggest mysteries surrounding next year’s Electric Daisy Carnival was undoubtedly how camping would be handled. I say “was” because today the details have just been revealed, and it’s not really like any other camping festival out there right now. First and foremost, there is no natural grass at the Las Vegas Speedway. After all, it is a desert. So driving up with just your tent and some stakes isn’t really an option – camping at EDC will remain a sort of VIP experience even at the most basic level, where campers can either drive in their own RVs or stay in some pre-furnished “pods” that have been set up by Insomniac. Still, you can expect the same kind of campground experiences you would get at Middlelands, Electric Forest, or Beyond Wonderland… for a premium. “Every year I challenge myself to find ways that we can enhance the EDC experience,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac. “One of my dreams has always been to create an immersive camping element to the festival, and I’m proud to announce that today, that idea becomes a reality with Camp EDC. We’re building out an expansive campground complete with air-conditioned ShiftPod tents and a drive-your-own RV option, in addition to a full center camp area called The Mesa that features tons of amenities and activities like daytime pool parties, yoga, group exercise classes, a curated speaker series, 24-hour food and beverage options, go-kart racing and plenty of art. There are so many things our Headliners can explore in Camp EDC, but the most exciting part is that people will be able to connect with one another in a completely new way.” As we mentioned before, EDC Vegas won’t be a “bring your own tent” kind of camping experience. Instead, all of the tent camping options are within ShiftPod2 structures; these are fully enclosed, lockable, and dust-controlled, with artificial grass flooring, air conditioning, interior lighting, and 4-port USB strips. This option begins at $1,199 per group of up to four people, and includes one vehicle pass. The inaugural Camp EDC program will introduce three options: Moonglow Camping ($1,199 per group, includes all taxes and fees): One vehicle pass plus accommodations for up to four people. Bedding is not included. Desert Rose Premiere Camping ($1,499 per group, includes all taxes and fees): Accommodations for up to two people. Includes one vehicle pass, one deluxe queen bed or two single beds with linens and pillows, premier location closest to the festival entrance, and exclusive access to dedicated Desert Rose Camping showers and A/C restrooms. Bring-Your-Own RV ($329 per RV, includes all taxes and fees): Accommodations for up to eight people. RV campers will receive a 15-foot x 50-foot parking space, one vehicle pass, access to tent camping bathrooms and showers, and all Mesa amenities. Water and power can be purchased separately. All RVs must have a working air conditioner powered by an on-board generator. Extra add-ons will be available for purchase on the EDC Las Vegas Camping website. The Mesa will be available to all campers, and will serve as a sort of home base to congregate before or after the festival, or when you just need to head back to camp for a breather. Featured amenities include: Thursday night kick-off party in the campgrounds featuring special guest DJ sets on the Parliament Art Car Go-kart racing Expansive Mesa pool complete with palm trees and walk-up bars Glitter and jewel makeovers Hair cuts, beard trims, and styling at the Barber Shop, open daily Airbrush body art Traditional yoga, acrobatic yoga, meditation, and Reiki cleansing Sound healing Rave aerobics and hula hoop classes Live model art Field day games like foot races, tug-o-war, and scavenger hunts Speaker series and comedic character performances Women’s wellness workshops Shaded spaces and misting stations with artificial grass A variety of food truck options serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks Beverage stands featuring alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks 24-hour filtered water, medical, security and Ground Control services A general store, an information booth and a lost & found Free charging stations A shuttle service to nearby grocery stores (at extra cost) Pedicab service to and from the festival (at extra cost) Camp EDC passes will be available to festival pass holders first, on Wednesday, November 15, at 12 PM PT, followed by the general on sale, Thursday, November 16 at 12 PM PT, here.

  23. Bali has always been a place you think of for tropical vacations and winter getaways to escape the cold, but as major countries become saturated with music festivals and the wealthy look for something exclusive to do, exotic locations like Bali have taken up the mantle. SAGA Music Festival is the first locally owned, organized and executed multi-day and stage festival in Bali. Set to take place at the end of the year, December 28-29, SAGA promises more than just music; it will offer a 360 experience focused on entertainment, culture, art, and a “culinary bazaar.” And from all that we can tell about SAGA, this is just the first chapter in something much bigger. Promoters state that “the idea is bigger than just a party; it’s a moment carefully curated to foster friendships, celebrate life and explore imagination without limits – a moment that everyone will remember years from now.” The festival will take place at the monumental Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Culture Park in Bali, Indonesia. The site, which is just a 15-minute drive from the airport in the Badung Regency area and can accommodate up to 50,000 people, takes up 240-acres of parkland and is dotted with 25-meter high limestone carved cliffs with the park’s namesake statue, which is one of Bali’s most revered cultural icons, serving as a centerpiece. While SAGA is looking to establish itself as more than just a music festival, that doesn’t mean that the lineup has been over looked. World-class names will take the stage, including DJ Snake, FKJ, TWRK, and Chris Lake. Bali’s music scene has been recently elevated by the entrance of worldwide festival brands like Ultra Music Festival and Bestival, but what they have been missing is a local touch and that’s how SAGA Music Festival aims to differ on an island where gorgeous days and starlit nights create the ideal setting for a slice of festival paradise in Bali. Purchase tickets here. PHASE 1 LINE-UP // (A-Z) CHRIS LAKE | DIPHA BARUS | DJ JESSE WILDE | DJ SNAKE | DJ STAN DJ YASMIN | DROPGUN | FKJ | MARC BENJAMIN | RAVE REPUBLIC TENJO | TWRK + ALL IN resident DJs This article was first published on Your EDM.
