The experience itself was very humbling as we were able to interact with our readers on a personal level while extending the experieince to them of meeting some of their favorite artistis / DJs. We have uploaded all the photos from the meet & greets to our Facebook Page with links to them all below and you can tag yourself and friends in the post. Big thanks to React, all the tour managers for making the experience possible and Da Black Swan Photography for capturing all the moments and we look forward to being apart of the festival for years to come.

It had such a great response, we had to bring it back!
This year we have one of our best cast of artists participating yet, with 10 different producers / DJs involved. You can see all the times below.
All you have to do is show up before the time announced for that particular artist and you can meet them. We also have a professional photographer there ready to capture the memories and will be posting the pictures in a dedicated page full of albums and on our Facebook Page after the festival. Make sure you show up early as some of the bigger artists tend to have long lines and they can only be there for a limited amount of time!

He works in some new uncharted territory including more hip hop and minimal big room stuff. The mix is filled with energy from start to finish while working in so many styles really taking the listener on quite the journey. All he asks is for a facebook like to for a free download.
In 3LAU’s words:
this mix incorporates a lot of hip hop samples, electro and minimal big room – focusing less on the super popular tracks (while it has a few) and more on the underground stuff from promising up and coming producers. The tempo changes keep it moving really fast w/ a lot of energy”
