gabriel & dresden

Deep passion manifested itself into a triumphant return for Gabriel & Dresden, whose crowdfunded album The Only Road exceeded already high expectations from trusting fans to become one of the top trance releases of 2017. The beloved duo have since been taking their new work on the road with them, attending to their global following’s craving for their clever and sentimental aesthetic.

The pair offer an enticing taste of what fans might expect from their forthcoming appearances both Ultra and at Above & Beyond‘s Common Ground Miami Music Week event, taking place March 22 at the RC Cola Plant. It makes for an enjoyable hour, flowing smoothly from the deep end of trance to a more energized soundscape, ending with their beloved remix to Andain’s “Beautiful Things.”

Those looking to go who have yet to secure their spot at the Common Ground show might be in luck, as Dancing Astronaut has paired with Anjunabeats to grant one winner a pair of Anytime Arrival tickets. They’ve added additional perks as well, including two tickets to Anjunabeach, slated for March 25 in South Beach, and some exclusive merchandise.

The World Club Dome concept is responsible for some of the most unique party experiences out there, and now they’re putting on the smallest, most exclusive club event of all time in a specially converted A310 aircraft, commissioned by the European Space Agency for astronaut training flights, for a completely gravity-free party experience.

Two winners, one male and one female, from each continent will be chosen for the maiden flight, with an additional two winners from Germany and India each. The flight will be a total of 90 minutes and it will take off from Frankfurt Airport on February 7, 2018. Fans can apply to be selected by submitting a 20-second video testimonial as to why they should win access to World Club Dome Zero Gravity, and the first wave of finalists will be announced on January 12.

Win a Siesta4 heat and light blocking tent with built-in fans [Contest]

This post was originally published on this site

Dancing Astronaut has teamed up with Outback Logic to give away one Siesta4 heat and light blocking tent with built-in fans.

The Siesta4 is a four-person tent composed of lightweight, durable and waterproof fly fabric that reflects infrared, visible and ultraviolet light. Boasting two ducted side vents for USB-powered fans and full length fly and closable mesh, the Siesta4 was crafted with the music festival camper in mind – offering protection from the elements, dust and the sun’s harmful rays. Two doors on each end of the tent allow for superior ventilation, complete darkness for sleeping and an open lounging space.

The Siesta4 comes in two colors: Silver and Disco. The latter, which was inspired by the festival community, offers the same benefits as the standard Siesta4 but makes for an even more eye-popping visual when hit with light. The Siesta4 Disco is available for pre-order now.

Learn more about Siesta4 and pre-order your 2018 tent here, and enter our giveaway below for your chance to win.
