Back in July we headed to Momente, the one day open air event in Duisburg which also doubles up as a wake boarding venue! Momente focusses on techno, house and deep house. The mind-bending line up included Moonbootica, Nick Curly, Arado, Claptone, Oliver Stories and many more. We also caught up with Festival manager Phillip backstage.
Soaking up the incredible atmosphere and solid beats from one of the biggest ADE’s yet, 2016 was a stellar edition taking over Amsterdam once again for five action-packed days. From the ADE Cook-Off with Kólsch and Eats Everything to performances from Jamie Jones and burgeoning talent ANNA, we went, we saw, we danced and we played!
The Crane Hotel was a new-kid-on-the-block for shenanigans and on the same side of the river was The Loft, where Jackmaster played to an intimate and up-for-it crowd. Henrik Schwarz and the Metropol Orkest (Orchestra) stunned a packed auditorium with a mesmerizing four-hour performance and we, of course, strolled many a canal and somehow got back on a plane home. Thanks again Amsterdam Dance Event… see you in 2017!

Open air and beachside - a total paradise-like location! Ben Morganstern and Johanna Garth de-camped to Smag Sundance 2016 in Essen to get the full action from this year’s festival.
With the stellar line up including Seizo, Lost Frequencies, man of the moment Sigala, Sorgenfrei, Plastik Funk and Le Shuuk to name but a few; catch them all playing among the boats and sand as the sun goes down.
Earlier this summer we paid a visit to the monster festival that is both open air & indoor. Echelon 2016 had an all star line up and Johanna Garth was back at the helm to catch all the action. With Lexy & K-Paul, Klaudia Gawlas and Wankelmut updating us on their latest movements and heavyweights like Adam Beyer, Maceo Plex and Claptone all playing the packed audiences it was only fitting the festival should end with epic fireworks!
After 27 magical years summer 2016 saw the final closing fiesta of the cultural institution that we will forever know in our hearts as Space Ibiza.
We were there for the full 19 hour party with its 20,000 strong crowd and what a celebration it was! Streaming live in collaboration with Be-at.TV on the night; here is our report fitting in as many of the sets as possible including Carl Cox and Nic Fanciulli, along with some very emotional words from an impressive roll call of DJs including Erick Morillo, James Zabiela, Eats Everything, ANNA, Josh Wink, Steve Lawler and more
Cramming 19 hours into 10 minutes was no easy task, we hope you enjoy!!
