[BREAKING NEWS] Tomorrowland 2014 To Expand to 2 Weekends - Featured Image
Tomorrowland, the most buzzed about music festival worldwide that sold out last year in 1 second has announced plans for a second weekend. With such high demand leaving thousands without tickets last year for the Belgian festival, this news should be an early end of year present. This comes during 2014, the 10th anniversary of the festival, so only makes sense to make their flagship festival even more massive. There have been two new permits issued from Mayors of Rumst and Boom, both Belgian municipalities (cities) signifying the festival might move locations for the second weekend to one of these locations. We can thank local Belgian publication Gazet van Antwerpen for breaking the news. The festival didn't comment yesterday, but with permits already being secured we guarantee an expansion of the festival. Since last year it sold out in 1 second, now with twice as many tickets will we have an entire minute to get our hands on tickets? Or will this added allotment severely decrease buzz?

Ultra Music Festival Feared Cancellation from the City of Miami: Power of the EDM Community Shines

Ultra Music Festival Feared Cancellation from the City of Miami: Power of the EDM Community Shines - Featured Image
Ultra Music Festival announced a few months back that it would mark history with it's 2013 event having going down as the first ever electronic music festival to extend to two weekends. Well, the Miami City Commissioner Marc Sarnoff was not too thrilled with this deceision of the second weekend, and made a hasty decision of proposing to cancel it, despite looking at the benefit, first and foremost the $79 million added revenue Ultra Music Festival added to the City of Miami last year alone. He made false accusations accusing all attendees of the event to be drug overdosing maniacs. He failed to see how massive the event was and how important it was to so many people. Below is a copy of the actual proposal from City Commissioner Marc Sarnoff to the City of Miami.



The community fought back fast. DJ and Electronic Music Activist Tommie Sunshine started the twitter tyrant against Commissioner Marc Sarnoff, resulting in an article in the Miami Times. There was a petition that got passed around raising over 8,000 signatures really showing how fast the electronic community can voice their opinion, especially on something as strongly as getting wrongly mislabeled by a city, and threatening the expansion of the biggest event in the country. Now the City has agreed to stop any efforts of stopping the festivals second weekend expansion and have accepted it... all of course for a $500,000 compensation fee.
Hope to see you at either of the weekends in Miami.. or both for the die hards! This is the first example of how powerful the Electronic community really is in America!
