Featuring the likes of Richie Hawtin, who's locked in for the DJ Mag Best of North America awards show, as well as Ben Klock, Donato Dozzy, DJ Bone, and a surplus of other techno legends, Instytut Festival already flaunts an impressive line-up before you even get to its remarkable setting.
Porter Robinson has announced that he will be launching his own festival called Multiverse this summer.
The festival will see him team up with promoters Goldenvoice and will take place at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland, California on Saturday, June 15th.

Ultra Music Festival has responded to a lawsuit issued by Rapture Electronic Music Festival over the Virginia Key site that both events have been given permission to use on the same weekend.
"There is no merit to the recent lawsuit," Ultra's statement says. "To claim that Ultra has violated the law is both disappointing and misplaced. Ultra lawfully secured its license to host its annual production on Virginia Key, including by obtaining necessary approvals from the City of Miami Commission."
Californians have a long history of dragging large sound systems deep into the mountains and canyons of the state’s most remote corners to throw some truly epic, off-the-grid events. In recent years, no crew has done more to keep that tradition alive than Desert Hearts. Started in true renegade fashion in 2012 with just 200 attendees, Desert Hearts has grown into a legit mini-festival of 5,000, with highly regarded headliners like Damian Lazarus, Dave Seaman and DJ Harvey — though it maintains its “one stage, one vibe” focus and the strong sense of community that engenders.
The three-day event, which launched in 1999 as Ultra Beach Music Festival during Winter Music Conference, has become the “it” destination for dance music fans from all over North America, as well as the globe. It has truly been a treat to watch the evolution of Ultra over the years. From launching as an 11-hour rave on Miami Beach in ’99 to now celebrating its 20-year anniversary with special editions of the festival taking place all over the planet, Ultra is a dance music mainstay that’s morphed with the times.
Glastonbury has announced the full line-up for its Block9 area, the festival’s apocalyptic haven for underground house and techno, which runs from Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th June.
The 24-hour party of heavyweight sound systems sees a number highlights across the weekend including a Prince tribute by Hot Chip, a two-hour deep house set from New York legend Roger Sanchez, Mr G (live), Berlin’s Panorama Bar resident ND_BAUMECKER and a Rinse FM takeover.

These annual events drew in tens of thousands of music-lovers from all corners of the world to celebrate life with the power of music.
