Spain's 20-hour desert rave, Monegros Desert Festival, has announced its first names ahead of the event's return after a five year hiatus. Richie Hawtin, whose A/V album 'Close Combined' dropped in September, Paul Kalkbrenner and Amelie Lens lead the charge.
Hip hop act Natos & Woar have also been confirmed, with the final line-up set to see more than 50 artists joining for the 45,000 capacity, 20-hour gathering, which will run 12 stages from 1st - 2nd August 2020.
Elrow has locked a 10-date Las Vegas residency at Encore Beach Club, kicking off on Sunday 19th May, finishing up on Sunday 7th December.
As per usual, the globetrotting Spanish club brand will be bringing solid tech sounds, a kaleidoscope of colours, insane decor and serious carnival vibes.
It's the latest of the event series' US sessions, which began back in December 2016 in New York, and most recently returned to the country for takeovers at Avant Gardner, also in the Big Apple.
Every Friday, we invite some of the world’s best DJs to our London offices for a #DJMAGHQ live stream to our Facebook and Youtube pages.
We are delighted to welcome Andres Campo to takeover our #DJMagHQ.
Have you ever listened to music underwater? What about at the bottom of the deepest diving pool on earth? What would that be like? Well, that’s what the brainboxes at Desperados, the tequila flavoured half-alcopop half-beer hybrid, have decided to find out with their latest event, Deep House, in Y-40, the world’s deepest man-made diving pool just outside Venice.
After putting on a helmet that makes us feel like we were about to launch into space, we slowly lower ourselves down a ladder into the pleasantly lukewarm water, at first freaking out that we’re going to drown and then realising that actually the helmet works, and what’s more has speakers that are pumping Artwork’s set directly into the air around our heads.
After that, we’re given the chance to freedive sans helmet and fuck around in the pool by ourselves, which actually feels a lot less claustrophobic and is more entertaining. We manage to fist-bump some ravers through the glass a few times and even stand on top of Artwork’s head for a decent drop, which, although not a personal life goal of ours, surely is for someone somewhere in the world — so whoever you are, that one’s for you.
As the night careers on, aided and abetted by Desperados-infused cocktails and slush puppies, the house keeps pumping, the confetti keeps raining and the Elrow actors keep being zany.
There are those who are all too ready to bash branded events, but we have to admit it’s a totally unreal experience, unlike anything we’ve ever done before or will probably do again, and ultimately we’re lucky enough to experience it because Desperados want to push their name out a bit.
Party brand Elrow have unveiled a brand new immersive theme and line-up for their 2018 Ibiza closing party.
Entitled Planet Row, the end of season bash will feature a futuristic outer space theme with a massive line-up including Eats Everything, Joris Voorn, Claptone, wAFF b2b De La Swing, George Privatti and Tini Gessler.
Billed as a "non-stop party", Planet Elrow takes place in the year 3135 when Earth and all the other planets have disappeared.
For 30 years, Groove Armada have been coming to Ibiza. The island’s constant state of flux has led them to experience the rise and fall of legendary clubs, parties and scenes and as they gear up to play Elrow this season at Amnesia, we wanted to get their take on where Ibiza is, where it’s going and how Elrow is a force for good on the island...
Don't tell anyone, it's a secret... The colourful characters over at elrow Town are hosting a super-exclusive party in a top secret location in Soho next week.
Elrow will be making its Ushuaïa Ibiza debut on 18th July and today the party brand has unveiled the full line-up — and it’s looking big.
Joining the likes of Eats Everything, Andrea Oliva and Kölsch will be Swiss don Andrea Oliva, elrow favourite De La Swing and Spanish legend Marc Maya.
For this one-off show at Ushuaïa, elrow will be adorning their Sambodromo de Brasil theme and be bringing a wild Brazilian street party to the open-air venue.
The costume head for Rowgelia the chicken, elrow’s iconic chicken mascot, has mysteriously gone missing.
The party’s organisers have said whether it’s fowl play or if it has simply been misplaced at an event — but they have offered a reward for its safe return.
In a tweet posted earlier today, elrow announced that the chicken's head has gone missing and, like with anything that goes missing these days, the party's organisers are hoping that social media will secure its safe return.
Elrow will be returning to Ibiza’s famed rave cave Amnesia for a second season — and they’re pulling out all the stops with a new theme, Chinese Rowyear, and the likes of Seth Troxler, Skream, Heidi, Kölsch, Pan-Pot and Camel Phat.
The party series has quickly become the talk of the dance music world thanks to its unique blend of world-class DJs and theatrical showmanship and their second season at Amnesia is set to be their biggest yet.
