We’ve all seen an electrifying festival set before. Though maybe some more electrifying than others.
In Chillicothe, Illinois reports of attendees at Summer Camp Music Festival having been struck by lightning appeared on Twitter over the weekend. As the festival kicked off its first day, a massive thunder storm poured down on festival-goers. Although the storm only affected festival grounds for about 30 minutes, multiple people were reportedly struck by bolts of lightening.
Tweets reported that two to five people had been struck, and initially it was not clear among reports across various social media outlets that everyone who was struck is in stable condition. With the threatening weather conditions, stages were shut down for a period of time, but the music resumed about 20 minutes after the storm passed. Later reports seemed to confirm all attendees were in stable condition.
Due to weather conditions, stages are currently shut down. We hope to be up & running again in 15-20 min after the storm passes! Stay safe!
KSHMR has fashioned an anthemic festival piece that draws inspiration from his ancestral roots. The former Cataracs proponent-turned-EDM titan drops off a brand new offering, titled “Strange Lands,” polished with Bollywood-esque sample selections and ethnocentric instrumentation. The most fascinating bit of KSHMR’s latest however, comes in the second half of the tune, where he masterfully experiments with psy-trance elements, utilizing traditional running bass-line and swift, impactful kicks. “Strange Lands” is indeed a bit of a departure for the “Back To Me” producer, yet perfect for the main stage nonetheless considering the track’s crafty play on big room sounds.
Things have been heating up for KSHMR as of late. In addition to a heavy tour schedule, he’s also due to drop his brand new and highly sought-after collaboration with Tiësto on June 16.

Apparently feeling the Memorial Day weekend weather, King Thelo decided to revisit his Soundcloud upload button for a quick, breezy loosie. For this joint he decided to grab Swade for some vocal work, plus IZ of the increasingly talked about Burns Twins.
A few weeks after we were introduced to The Lost Boys, the duo lets loose their full project. Lik and Nick G have a chemistry that consistently entertains and sits nicely in the current landscape of music coming from the city. I’m done talking though so I’ll let them take things from here. No standing by necessary.
Check out The Lost Boys’ 14-track effort below, and be on the lookout for new material from these two. We know we will.
Eric Prydz promised that the EPIC 5.0 show was going to be bigger and better than ever before. In fact, Eric Prydz stated that this year’s show would “blow your heads off.” After months of teasing his fans with pictures and posts to his social media, Eric Prydz debuted the EPIC 5.0 show in Victoria
Guns N’ Roses were one of the latest to honor the life and unfortunate death of Chris Cornell last week with a cover of “Black Hole Sun”, live from their show yesterday at Slane Castle in Ireland…
Axl pushes for the high notes and doesn’t quite get as far as Cornell could get, only more fitting to still try for it anyway to show the fans they really meant it. Slash rips an insane solo over the end, though, so it all works out in the end. Axl closes the song with a simple, “For Chris…” before moving onto one of the other tracks from their canon.
Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings is one of the most popular record labels in the dance music scene. Recently, the music label has reached its fifth year since the beginning of its production.

Steve Aoki has had an interesting few months following his ‘rebranding’ campaign of sorts that found him attempting to move away from the EDM typecast. After teasing his latest collaboration with Migos during a live show in Austin, the Dim Mak head honcho seems ready to further diversify, this time with the seemingly unlikely pairing with BTS.
Sharing a recent picture on Instagram, the producer seems to be working on a collaboration with acclaimed K-pop group BTS, fresh off their Billboard Music Awards success. The Korean outfit appears to be the next collaborative outlet Aoki has his his scope fixed on. Currently, details about the collaboration remain under wraps, but with a simple and concise “Coming soon” caption, you can bet this inbound new joint product is soon bound for inevitable commercial success.
