Dance music was born in nightclubs, and it is in these incredible spaces where it will always live on. But there is something quite special about transporting the energy and excitement of dance music into a totally different space. Here we recap four occasions when dance music crossed into iconic, unusual spaces.
PAUL OAKENFOLD AT THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA
BigCityBeats will make its Asia debut with World Club Dome taking place in Incheon, South Korea at the Incheon Munhak Stadium from 22nd - 24th September 2017.
The first phase of the jam packed line-up includes Armin van Buuren, Robin Schulz, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, Marshmello, Sven Väth, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, W&W, Don Diablo, Le Shuuk and Lost Frequencies.
Steve Aoki revealed his brand-new, custom-designed, cake-themed, pastel-coloured phone charger at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas yesterday.
The external power bank, which is small enough to keep in your pocket or clip on your belt, is appropriately titled CAKE ME and is set to be a fave with EDM fans stateside.
Other shapes available include a ghost, a penguin, an ice-cream, and a watermelon, as well as something called a "power poof".
Electric Zoo, which was originally established in NYC and has since expanded to Shanghai, has announced a brand-new Brazilian takeover.
Electric Zoo Brazil will take place 21st April next year, and will be transporting its signature Cobra Stage direct to São Paulo.
Steve Aoki is set to perform at a secret warehouse location in Brooklyn, New York on 1st January 2017. He will headline the event, titled Ignite: New Year’s Day, alongside GTA, Bad Royale and a slew of other acts still to be announced.
Let’s face it, holiday events can be a bit, blah – whether it’s a boring round at a minimally-decorated office with your co-worker’s cringe-worthy drunkenness on full display or an awkward family gathering with your family’s similarly cringe-worthy drunkenness on full display. Don’t get us wrong, the month of December is full of feel-good vibes that radiate into the atmosphere, but it’s also a month of aforementioned gawky encounters. We basically need vacations from our vacations – and that’s where DJ Mag USA comes in.
