Euphoria Music Festival returned for its 4th annual celebration this year April 10-13 and has once again raised the bar in all areas that matter for avid festivalgoers. This 3-day camping festival located in beautiful Carson Creek Ranch in Austin, Texas is not only unique for it’s selection in artists, but also for the atmosphere it provides to it’s attendees.

This festival is by far one of my favorites, and it seems its uniqueness has not gone unnoticed. Plenty of people who attended this year traveled from across the US to enjoy and witness firsthand what makes this festival so special.  Impressive headliners this year included favorite Austin native’s Ghostland Observatory, Pretty Lights, STS9, Adventure Club, Thievery Corporation and Big Gigantic.

Ever since its inception back in 1995, The Gallery has become nothing short of a Great British institution. Having started its journey at Farringdon’s infamous Turnmills, 2008 witnessed the UK’s longest running Friday night club event move south of the river to Elephant & Castle’s world famous Ministry of Sound. 2015 marks The Gallery’s twentieth birthday, a milestone seldom reached in clubland. A series of events have been curated to celebrate this achievement which will culminate in spectacular fashion at South West Four on Saturday 29th August, as The Gallery hosts its own arena. Having spearheaded the UK trance movement for two decades, this carefully programmed stage will feature ten of the very best and freshest names in the scene and with three already announced, we can reveal the remaining artists that have been invited to be part of this historic landmark...

Entering into its 4th year as a festival but with over 7 years experience as an infamous party starter in the capital, Eastern Electrics has over the years built up lasting relationships with some of the most celebrated house and techno artists on the global circuit and this is truly reflected in the calibre of talent destined to play at this year’s main event. In some cases nurturing and growing alongside DJs in their super underground early days, notably the now major league Jamie Jones, Eastern Electrics has no doubt played a role in the amplification of quality underground dance music and its main players in the UK. Eastern Electrics Festival 2015 will showcase the strongest line-up the festival has ever seen, across 8 unique stages on one huge day of dancing and debauchery.
 
Soundtracking the EE main stage will be an international melting pot of two-ton heavyweights, including The Netherlands’ groove master JORIS VOORN, Panorama Bar resident and EE favourite CASSY, king of tech house MATTHIAS TANZMANN, the deep thrills of GUTI live, as well as DJ sets from German techno staple NICK CURLY and the man behind Fuse London’s unique brand of East London hedonism, ENZO SIRAGUSA. Closing the festival once again is icon of the scene JAMIE JONES, a true innovator who will no doubt deliver another unforgettable sun down set.

Last seen headlining the NME/BBC Radio 1 Stage, the band’s sophomore album ‘This Is All Yours’ has established them as one of Britain’s brightest and biggest bands, who are stepping up to the plate for an evening set on the Main Stage.
