Pendulum prep Trinity Live production for headline slot at Rampage FestivalPendulum Trinity Press Shot

One of the world’s premier bass festivals, Belgium’s Rampage, is coming off of a major 10th anniversary outing in 2019. The lineup boasted a thick cast of dubstep and drum ‘n’ bass heavyweights including Andy C, Excision, Sub Focus, Dimension, and more. Though now, as the festival preps for the 2020 iteration, Rampage has revealed their first headliner—Pendulum, performing their Trinity Live concept for just the second time. And judging by the festival’s lead off booking, 2020’s talent roster is already looking mighty fine.

Pendulum Trinity feature’s the group’s original three members: Gareth McGrillen, Rob Swire, and El Hornet, performing atop a pyramid of LEDs, making for one of the most sensory-overloading live electronic shows of the last decade. The trio have only performed together one time outside of Australia in the last ten years, debuting the Trinity concept at London’s South West 4 Festival in early 2019. Now, the group is locked in for a headlining slot in Antwerp next year for Rampage, which takes place March 13 – 14, signaling to a massive low-end lineup soon to follow.

Year after year, the most in-demand electronic acts from across the globe
and their cross-continental patrons gather in Boom, Belgium for what is unquestionably one of the most bonkers celebrations in dance music. This year, for its 15th anniversary, the festival saw familiar faces from across the electronic genre continuum, like techno tidal wave and Belgian native, Charlotte de Witte, trance’s enduring patriarch, Armin van Buuren, and the Godfather of EDM himself, Tiësto; while DJ Diesel (Shaq) caused quite a ruckus over at the main stage for his Tomorrowland dubstep-fueled debut.

The quintessential dance music domain saw a colossal main stage revamp of its 2012 theme, the Book of Wisdom. More larger-than-life performances are practically guaranteed for weekend two, which kicks off Thursday July 25, and closing out on Monday July 29.

Belgian festival VestiVille canceled after events likening it to FyreJa Rule Bucks Game

Belgium’s VestiVille festival was canceled on the first day of its debut following a chain of events that some of its guests have likened to Fyre. At 5pm CET, the fallen event’s official Twitter posted a statement that the mayor of Lommel, the city where VestiVille was taking place, decided to shut things down after it’d become apparent that attendees and artists were at risk.

Troubles began to arise earlier in the day, when A$AP Rocky announced he was pulling out of his slot due to security and production concerns. Upon arrival, concertgoers began posting photos to social media of a barren venue and reporting widespread disorganization and lack of staff. A few joked they were ready to give their Netflix or Hulu interviews. Ironically, Ja Rule was set to play VestiVille as well.

Organizers have since been charged with crimes including money laundering and document forging. Vendors and staff also weren’t paid until hours before the event kicked off. Other artists allegedly set to play VestiVille included Cardi B, Trey Songz, and Lil Pump.

Hackers obtain information of 64,000 after Tomorrowland data breach

Hackers obtain information of 64,000 after Tomorrowland data breachTomorrowland 4

A recent breach of Tomorrowland‘s attendee database exposed data on 64,000 ticket holders from the Boom, Belgium-based event’s 2014 iteration. As a Tomorrowland spokesperson conveyed to Flemish news source, De Standaard, Tomorrowland’s ticketer, Paylogic, contacted festival organizers when the 2014 system displayed unprovoked “unusual activity.” Paylogic promptly disconnected the database and reported the incident, while Tomorrowland reached out to those whose information was compromised via email.

Hackers are reportedly likely to have gathered the names, ages, postal codes, genders, and email addresses of the 64,000 in Tomorrowland’s 2014 database, but did not obtain personal payment information, passwords, or physical addresses. Only Tomorrowland’s 2014 goers were affected by the breach. Tomorrowland personnel ask those who did receive an email notification of data disclosure to be wary of potential and ensuing phishing attacks, and to ensure that all electronic correspondence comes from Tomorrowland.com.
