A veteran of Toronto’s electronic events circuit, VELD Music Festival will bring a balance of dance and hip-hop acts to Downsview Park for the the festival’s 2019 iteration.

Alesso, Loud Luxury, Zeds Dead, 3LAU, Ekali, FISHER, Shiba San, and Gryffin comprise just another handful of VELD’s additional electronic talent.

On the hip-hop end, VELD so far is locked to see performances from Kodak Black, Jaden Smith, Rich the Kid, and Ski Mask the Slump God, among others. While the star power is evidently in no short supply from start to finish of the phase-one lineup, more remains, as VELD has promised to reveal succeeding phases over the next few months. The all-ages event will take place on August 3 and 4. Tickets to the festival are now available, here.

Tiesto and Dzeko Team Up For New Single ‘Halfway There’ Featuring A Trance Inspired Melody

While Tiesto and Dzeko’s new single is no doubt not trance, its melody will instantly give longtime fans a feeling of awe in the stomachs. ‘Halfway There’ featuring Lena Leon on vocals is a gorgeous melody driven big room tune. While it is obvious that Tiesto has moved away from his roots in euphoric trance,

Atlantic City is starting to see a resurgence behind new venue’s push for top talent and programming

Atlantic City is starting to see a resurgence behind new venue’s push for top talent and programmingAlesso 2

Before Las Vegas became the mecca for blockbuster DJ residencies at posh mega clubs, Atlantic City reigned supreme. The East Coast entertainment and tourism hub’s rich history began well before it became the first city outside of Nevada to offer legal gambling. Though over time, Atlantic City’s booming commercial appeal faltered, and at point of the city’s steepest decline, Vegas caught on to the global EDM boom, and the world’s top rap and dance talents all started vying for valuable residency slots at some of the hottest club properties in the country.

Atlantic City, once the home Caesar’s Palace, Bally’s, and more, may have fallen on hard times, but that doesn’t mean that the enduring entertainment hotspot has not hung on. Now, it seems the little engine that could may be picking up some steam once again. The city has remained an East Coast entertainment center point behind clubs like Hard Rock’s emerging DAER concept. The new indoor/outdoor hybrid, championed by the Hard Rock brand’s deep musical legacy, has been drawing in top-tier talent since it opened in June 2018, programming a state of the art venue that manages to capture big room energy and an intimate feel all at once.

DAER, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, has staked its claim on the national club circuit with major bookings including Drake, Tiësto, Alesso, Travis Scott, Above & Beyond, and more in its first months in business. The secret ingredient to DAER’s success though comes from venerated industry talent that has quietly migrated away from current social hotspots to head back to the East Coast and ignite Atlantic City’s resurgence. Former Hakkasan figures have brought their know-how to New Jersey and Atlantic City’s restoration seems to be underway. If DAER is the comparative barometer for what the boardwalk could eventually go back to, things are going to start looking up for the East Coast club scene. DAER hasn’t even had a full trip around the sun yet, but a recap of the club’s first six months in operation shows Atlantic City’s exciting comeback starting to materialize, largely behind what could likely become one of the most in-demand clubs in the country.

Las Vegas has always been host to entertainment’s cream of the crop — from Frank Sinatra to most recently Lady Gaga. However, in terms of electronic dance music, Vegas is more than just the big leagues, it’s the Hall of Fame. The world’s best all seem to make their ways to Sin City and 2019 is no different. Entertainment powerhouse Hakkasan Group has debuted this year’s talent roster for Wet Republic Ultra Pool, OMNIA at Caesars Palace, and of course Hakkasan Nightclub at MGM Grand. Topping the bill this year is seven-time Hakkasan resident, Tiësto, as well as returning resident headliner Calvin Harris, who is contracted through 2020.

Grammy-nominated producer ZEDD will return to Vegas in 2019, along with Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, and a host of top-tier and up-and-coming electronic performers, ranging from new breakouts Loud Luxury to NGHTMRE, Illenium to Party Favor, and interestingly, Porter Robinson too. “Playing for the crowds in Las Vegas at these amazing venues is an honor for me. I’m fortunate I get to do it again in 2019,” says ZEDD of his return to Nevada for the upcoming events season.
