Uh Happy Easter.
Uh Happy Easter.
This past weekend I was down in Miami with Jay, the mastermind behind PTB, and another friend who wishes to remain nameless as I may jeopardize his secrecies. basically it was awesome and I would like to share with you guys who I thought was on their game and put on a good show. I obviously couldn’t see everyone but out of all the incredible artists I was able to see; Eric Prydz, Cazzette, and Avicii for the first day, DJ Craze on the Trapped Stage and then Laidback Luke, Benny Benassi, Fatboy Slim, Calvin Harris, David Guetta, and Deadmau5 on the main stage, and then spent most of the third day on the Ultra Korea stage where I saw a little of Zedd, Porter Robinson, Steve Aoki, Hardwell, and then Knife party and then of course jumped over to the main stage for the main event: Swedish House Mafia.
Recess is back again! The team behind “Glowfest” have officially rebranded and made a major change. Officially, what was once known as “Glowfest” will now be known as “Recess.” According to their Facebook account “RECESS is a college music and ideas festival that combines music and education to curate the best day of college. We bring together the latest trends in music, technology, fashion, and art while inspiring and guiding student entrepreneurs.” Tonight they released the first 2 announcements of 2013 with their tour heading to Georgetown and Michigan State. They kick off the tour tour in our nations capital with superstar DJ Calvin Harris and support from Manufactured Superstars on April 6th. On top of having a massive show the Hoyas will be treated with the first “Study Hall” speaker series featuring names like Alexis Giles the Co-founder of DJZ.com as well as other student entrepreneurs. The second stop at Michigan State will be a night to remember where the one and only Kaskade headlines and progressive house duo Project46 opens. This is sure leave the Spartans raging until the end of this semester. Be on the lookout for ticket information at www.wearerecess.com and on their Facebook.
Tomorrow marks the first day of Buku Music and Art Project in New Orleans, LA. Premiered in 2012 by Winter Circle Productions, the Buku Music + Art Project has established itself as the premier progressive music and arts festival in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region. For those tired of the mega-festival and wanting an intimate setting with close stage views and clear/loud audio, BUKU fills that void. The line up this year is pretty dope, check after the jump for artist previews and the schedule.
