CRSSD Fest has released the lineup for its Spring 2018 event and its safe to say it gives previous years’ lineups a run for their money. Located in the heart of Downtown San Diego, CRSSD has established itself as a new beacon for pushing live, electronic music acts, as well as some of the best in house and techno.

With six previous editions, CRSSD has shined a light on some of the world’s most exciting artists, both here in the states and what’s hot abroad. Each new lineup has sought to explore the intersections of live and electronic music, with world-class headlining acts being paired with the emerging talent of tomorrow.The March 2018 edition will be no different, with edgy main stage performances on the Ocean View stage from Empire Of The Sun, Gorgon City, Ninja Tune, Bonobo, Little Dragon, The Presets, Henry Saiz, SNBRN, Nombe and Tchami.

Some of techno’s best known producers will play the City Steps, including Mouseville Records label boss Cirez D (the dark alter-ego of Eric Prydz), techno’s first lady Nicole Moudaber, the progressive pioneer and uniquely talented Sasha, current Grammy nominee Camelphat, the rapidly rising Belgian talents of Charlotte de Witte and Amelie Lens, and the European powerhouses of Mark Knight, Alan Fitzpatrick and Patrice Baumel.

CRSSD’s Palms stage will continue to support the very best in house as well as the ever evolving future sounds of electronic music, including Jai Wolf’s inimitable chart-topping global blends. All Day I Dream frontman Lee Burridge will spin his bewitching take on house music alongside Aussie icon and Beats1 broadcaster Anna Lunoe and the always groovy MK. SoCal’s bass driven house music will be repped by some of the DIRTYBIRD collectives finest including Walker & Royce, Shiba San, Sebastian V, and Kyle Watson.

Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world’s leading event for electronic music, have announced that the 23rd edition will take place from the 17th to 21st of October, 2018. The organizers are expecting around 400,000 national and international visitors.

During ADE there will be a range of activities focused on South Korea. Director Richard Zijlma states: “The South Korean electronic music scene is growing rapidly, thanks to technological innovation and smart crossovers. During ADE we will focus on the very best the country has to offer across a wide range of festival and conference events.”

The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), an initiative of Buma, is the world’s largest club-based festival and conference for electronic music. The event continues to grow and develop each year, with last year’s edition featuring over 2,500 artists and 550 speakers in a record breaking 160 venues. The event attracted visitors from over 90 countries over five days featuring every conceivable aspect of electronic music culture.

The organizers are committed to growing the day and nighttime activities once again in 2018 through established partnerships with cultural institutions, and by adding new pavilions focused on countries. “The addition of pavilions creates extra possibilities to meet and network for music industry professionals but also provides a means to show the innovative power of individual territories in front of an international audience,” states Zijlma.

The complete day and night program will be announced over the coming months. For more information about ADE: www.amsterdam-dance-event.nl/about-ade

It’s been 2 years since we’ve moved in on Dallas, Tx to witness what is easily one of the top 3 edm spectacles to end the year with. Lights All Night Always happens the last week end of the year and they do their best to bring the new year at an amazing height to the ragers, shufflers, bass, and house heads! With the bubble, which some say has “done popped”, moving into the double digits it’s hard to surprise or impress us most of us these days. I think the only way to really get into our music needing souls they just have to tap into what we want to hear live. Bring on the largest names and artist that borderline cult followings. I get in trouble when doing these reviews and recaps because I can say something about everyone so first new years resolution is to just kind of recap for the review. 😉

With Tune Collective we always want the good things last so let’s point out a few things that didn’t really work. The special guest, Ugly God + Smokepurpp kind of flopped. I don’t know if they artist weren’t ready for the edm kids or the festival wasn’t ready for the artist. Sound was distorted and the crowds were a bit lacking. The first few hours were a bit disorganized but you can tell they were really working on fixing all things and getting it cleared up. That was really it as far as bad things are concerned. O yea…… send out condolences to Illenium. That poor guy lost power a couple of times. It wasn’t a live set so I’m not sure we can really place blame on him. Small things that happen some times at festivals.

Where Lights All Night got things right this year was bringing in artist that have artist that are on borderline cult like. Bassnectar has the bassheads. Marshmello has the mellogang. AC Slater is the leader of Night Bass. Destructo is king of shipfam and what seems like distant cousins with Dirtybird these days. Lights All Night recognized that while these guys aren’t at the top 100 they carry something that is far more superior, dedicated fans!

The other artist are steady on the rise and were definitely not slouching on bringing heat. OOkay and Seven Lions for sure had the best sets of the weekend. The music stood out and the production was amazing! Ookay performed his live set and it was definitely a breath of fresh air. 80s synthy pop music and a key tar! A freaking key tar I tell ya! Holly & Sayer played weird bass music that just makes you pay attention because it’s just weird and weird is good. It stands out. While they were second on the bass stage on day two they had a crowd that was probably at it’s biggest for the day. It was good. An artist to keep a look out for is Devault. He’s a trap artist but his sets are interesting and mixed full with what seems like different remixes than what everyone else is playing. That is definitely a heater that people should look out for.

Production was solid with the big leds, cryo cannons, confetti, and loud sound. When you have a festival like this it’s good to focus on the artist, lights, and sound. There really is not enough time for most anything else. It seems like that Lights All Night has figured out how to continue bringing in strong crowds ready for a great festival. Lights All Night is definitely a great way to end the year!
