The Stronach Group, The Maryland Jockey Club, and Club Glow evince the power inherent in collaboration via their presentation of the first phase of the 2019 Clubhouse Festival lineup. Jointly produced by the three entities, the event’s second annual installment touts the artistic trappings of a strong sequel to Clubhouse’s inaugural edition: REZZ, Madeon, Two Friends, and Elephante.

The electronic talent that Clubhouse features, however, will be but one component of the festival. Clubhouse 2019 will concurrently host the Maryland Million when it returns to Laurel Park race track on October 19. With a one-day stakes card offering purses totaling one-million USD, the Maryland Million showcases nominated stallions in the state in a thoroughbred horse race. This facet alone distinguishes Clubhouse as the sole event to merge horse racing with a music festival in the region.

“We’re excited to bring Clubhouse Festival back for the second year as part of the Maryland Million Day. Building on the success of last year, Clubhouse Fest is back to combine world-class racing with an elevated entertainment experience featuring the best in music and brand new immersive food and beverage offerings.”

Jimmy Vargas, Executive Vice President, Entertainment, The Stronach Group

Clubhouse Festival will additionally cater to craft beer enthusiasts via the introduction of its Beats & Brews Greenhouse, stocked with a selection of Maryland’s top craft brews. Those who are 21 years of age and older will have the opportunity to take part in unlimited beer tastings, while enjoying expedited entry through a dedicated admission lane, private charging stations, air-conditioned VIP bathrooms, a premium stage viewing area, and a private VIP viewing area dedicated to the Maryland Million race day action, among other amenities.

Tickets to Clubhouse Festival’s second iteration are now on sale, and can be purchased here.

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKEDRukes III

While HOLY SHIP! won’t be setting sail in 2020, it’ll sure still be getting down. The revered HARD Events maritime festival will anchor itself in the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana next year, January 22-26 with a whole new name: HOLY SHIP! WRECKED.

Casting a wide and prominent net, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED has secured Diplo, Lane 8, Claude VonStroke, and Madeon to top its astounding 2020 roster, while Chris Lake, NGHTMRE & Slander, and Jai Wolf comprise what one could hardly call an undercard. Distinguished names from across the house and bass-abundant spectrum speckle the robust roster, from 12th Planet to TOKiMONSTA, Whethan to What So Not, the agenda seems to extend something irrefutable for every electronic taste preference. Up-and-coming contenders like Dom Dolla, Sonny Fodera, and ODESZA-championed MEMBA offer the lineup a fresh-faced appeal as well.

Not only is the lineup set to be one of the most in-depth throughout the HOLY SHIP! timeline, but the shift in format will offer #Shipfam an event that is both excitingly new and refreshingly familiar. Cloud 9 Adventures,the lead company behind the ship experience, has been producing events in concert with the Punta Cana resort for many years already and will bring that expertise to HOLY SHIP! WRECKED .

Just as on HOLY SHIP!, the resort will only be open to attendees throughout the festival. Seasoned Shipfam will still receive their robes as well as their OG party as fans and artists live together for a weekend in paradise:

We are shipfam for life, so we couldn’t miss out on this! – Gorgon City

Time to start the search for buried treasure. We be shipwrecked this year me maties! – Claude VonStroke  

When it comes time for the artists to perform, there will be nine different areas for music spread throughout the resort. With the increased amount of space, the overall production will be at a much higher level and each area will maintain a specific sonic identity. From daily pool parties to a 1,000 person-capacity club to a sunrise set on the beach, artists will be spinning multiple sets in a variety of environments to satisfy the astute tastes of Shipfam.

Plus, the extensive amenities provided both on-site and in the immediate area will allow for a much broader range of artist involved activities which will be announced soon.

Attendees of HOLY SHIP! WRECKED will have 24-hour access to the resort’s private beach. Every room includes its own balcony, hot tub, free Wi-Fi, and is roughly three times the size of rooms on the boat. There are nine restaurants around the resort offering everything from sushi to pizza, and just like on ship, food and drinks (including alcohol) are all-inclusive.

In terms of recreation outside of music, there is mini-golf, a lazy river, a waterslide, and much more on property. For an extra charge, attendees can take their experience to the next level with a full 18-hole golf course, excursions on dune buggies and ATV’s, a 65,000 square-foot spa, scuba diving, and various other activities that only a world-class island resort can offer.

Pre-sale for HOLY SHIP! WRECKED starts next Monday, July 29, and tickets officially go on sale Wednesday, July 31 at 11 am PT, available here, along with general festival information.

Madeon releases spontaneous new music video for ‘All My Friends’Madeon Press

Madeon has spent the past few years laying low, but 2019 has seen the producer return in full force. After releasing a surprise single, “All My Friends,” which received wide acclaim from fellow dance music producers and fans alike, he launched his own radio show on Beats 1 and a subsequent single, “Dream Dream Dream.” The surprises continue with the French producer now teasing a new music video that he thought of the idea for and spontaneously decided to shoot. He announced the video a day before its debut via Twitter.

The video made its debut on July 17, featuring a sea of bright colors, trippy lighting effects, and shots of the producer wandering through fields. Its over-saturated hues and psychedelic editing effects fit perfectly with the easygoing atmosphere created by the May 31 single.

Listen: Madeon premieres new single ‘Dream Dream Dream’ on newly launched Beats 1 radio showMadeon Press

The dance world had felt a noticeable void during Madeon‘s recent absence. Until he came back swinging at the end of May 2019 with a brand new single, a show on Beats 1, and an eponymous Good Faith tour announcement, the French talent hadn’t put out new music since “Shelter” with Porter Robinson. It’s safe to say he’s fully back on track now, with yet another new single debuted during his latest Good Faith episode.

“Dream Dream Dream” follows the path of “All My Friends;” it’s melodic, breezy, and high on sentimentality. Though, the similarities end there. This new single sees the prodigious producer ventures down a more soulful path instead, with a bassier foundation. Playful riffs of synth add an even cheerier touch to the finished product. Clearly, 2019 is the year of even deeper experimentation from an already forward-thinking artist.

Madeon joins Beats 1 family with new show, Good Faith RadioMadeon Live

Madeon SZN continues this summer as the beloved French producer announces the premiere of his new Beats 1 show, Good Faith Radio. Amid an exciting stretch of new music and the debut of a new live set up cat Lollapalooza later this month, Madeon’s new radio program will serve as the perfect platform for his new material, with his new single “DREAM DREAM DREAM” arriving on the show’s inaugural episode on Wednesday, July 10 at 11:00 a.m. PST.

The Adventure producer’s newly inked deal with Apple Music aims to bring an open-format show to the streaming giant, described by Madeon as an interactive experience between the producer and his fans.

Following a Shelter reunion with Porter Robinson earlier this summer and the announcement of a 31-date North American tour, Madeon continues to extend his hot streak leading up to one of the most anticipated releases of the year.

Porter Robinson‘s Second Sky Festival has reached its conclusion, but the electronic music community is still reeling from the weekend’s performances, especially Skrillex‘s surprise set. The producer offered a little misdirection surrounding his involvement with the affair, tweeting that he wished he were at the festival. But sure enough, the OWSLA boss showed up disguised as a blow-up figure after Porter Robinson announced that an ominous special guest by the name of “DJ Potaro” was set to take the stage.  

Fortunately, YouTube user, Myshonok, captured the entire set, allowing those who weren’t there (and those who were) to transport back to see the producer drop cornerstone selects from his catalog like “Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites,” along with a litany of his newer releases.

Other highlights of the weekend include Madeon playing a back-to-back set with Robinson, and Robinson playing a full Worlds throwback set dedicated to the revered 2014 album release.

Porter Robinson‘s Second Sky festival has been one of the most anticipated moments on the summer events circuit since it was announced back in March. The inaugural single-day event, hosted by Goldenvoice in Oakland, kicks off on June 15 with a stellar lineup curated by Robinson himself. The “Ghost Voices” producer is slated for two Second Sky performances, one as Virtual Self and the other a Worlds revival set, bringing the beloved live album performance back for the first time since 2017. Best of all, Virtual Self is actually the festival opener.

It is almost unheard of these days for a headliner—no less the festival’s curator—to open their own event, though the reason behind the scheduling is actually quite altruistic, not to mention smart. Robinson’s early performance is meant to encourage early attendance at the event, ensuring fans are there for the other early acts booked for the day. This year’s programming includes performances by G Jones, Nina Las Vegas, Cashmere Cat, and a late addition of Madeon, just weeks ahead of the debut of his new live show at Lollpalooza. Second Sky’s doors open at noon on June 15.

The Bloody Beetroots and Dr. Fresch prove to be a formidable combo as they deliver their new collaboration, “Fkn Face,” and Yotto puts his own spin on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s iconic “Underwater.” Rinzen brings a touch of magic to Lane 8’s “Visions,” and Deorro eases fans into summer with “Obvious.” Maceo Plex delivers a lengthy, soothing single, “When the Lights Are Out,” and Petit Biscuit and JP Cooper join forces for “We Were Young.” Will Clarke puts a shimmering spin on Phantoms’ “Designs for You,” and Arty brings the “Sunshine” to his newest release. The Chainsmokers and Bebe Rexha dip between pop and dance music on “Call You Mine,” and Sofi Tukker link with Colombian duo Bomba Estéreo for a tropical number, “Playa Grande.” The latest Chase & Status LP has finally arrived, bringing with it songs like “Shut Up,” and Figure teams up with Hi I’m Ghost for “Intergalactic.”

Madeon shares new single in vinyl form in only four cities around the world

Madeon shares new single in vinyl form in only four cities around the worldYfPNQKw

It has been a hectic 24 hours for devoted followers of Hugo Pierre Leclercq, better known as Madeon. After a near three year silence from any original music, the Frenchman began to update the images across his entire social media presence earlier this week and fans were more than suspicious that an announcement was impending. That suspicion quickly proved to be accurate after Madeon shared a photo on late Tuesday afternoon of a billboard he put up in Los Angeles that read ‘GOODFAITH.WORLD‘.

As people began to read between the lines that it was directing them to a web address, Madeon already had a message waiting for them. The soon-to-be 25-year-old unveiled that “This is the start of the Good Faith Era” and that he would be releasing his long-awaited comeback single on Wednesday “in the real world.” Early Wednesday morning, the cryptic website was updated with addresses in four cities around the world including Los Angeles, New York City, Alesund, and Nantes. Two vinyls at each location were left for those who could get there early enough to search and claim to get an exclusive first listen at Madeon’s upcoming single, “All My Friends”.

“All My Friends” will officially be available for the rest of the world to experience on Friday, May 31st but one fan was able to record a preview of the single at the New York record store.
