Following the huge success of October 2012’s “Electric Adventure,” Area Event and Six Flags Entertainment Corporation have announced that the first of its kind festival will expand to two days for this year’s installment. “Electric Adventure 2013” will take place at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ on Saturday, August 3 and Sunday, August 4.

“Electric Adventure” is a fantasy land where Electronic Music meets an iconic amusement park for the most exciting and electrifying music festival experience in the world. During theday fans will find themselves riding roller coasters and the latest attractions of Six FlagsGreat Adventure alongside their favorite DJs, while dancing into the evening to the mostcutting edge music and live production from Area Event. In 2012 Dada Life famously took on the legendary Kingda Ka rollercoaster with their fans. There’s no telling what kinda ride you’llbe able to go on this year when you see the lineup Electric Adventure has in store!

As a sign of its commitment to dance music and the growth of “Electric Adventure,” Six Flags Entertainment Corporation has not only expanded the festival to two days, but also for the first time in history, will keep the park open after hours on consecutive nights solely for “Electric Adventure” attendees. This means that festivalgoers will have the music and the park all to themselves. Additionally, Six Flags Great Adventure will plug into “Electric Adventure” meaning that dance music will be pumped throughout the entire amusement park!

Hip-Hop’s rising legends, Lunice and Hudson Mohawke (TNGHT), hit the world with another left side tune. The song starts off with an eery, toy box melody, that sets up the twisted atmosphere. The progression, while incorporating old-school synths, takes listeners to a dream like state where a psychotic ringleader is conducting a circus night at a madhouse. This track will definitely make noise at the festivals to come in the following months. Make sure to grab a copy of Acrylics out now on ITUNES.

Beyond Wonderland 2013


We’re already in the second month of 2013, which means Festival Season is almost here! For the fourth time Beyond Wonderland is back March 16th at the San Manuel Amphitheater  (San Bernardino, CA). This years line up features a few of our favorite acts, such as: Steve  Angello, Crizzly, Bassjackers, R3hab, Chuckie &  many more. Tickets are available on Insomniac’s website. 

In case you’re wondering about the venue switcharoo, Insomniac’s CEO Pasquale Rotella made this clear-positive statement.

 “Beyond Wonderland has grown to an incredible following over the past few years, and this new venue will allow us to present an even more imaginative setting for our fans.

“Surrounded by rolling hills and mountains, we will transform the grounds like never before with multiple stages, new features, large scale art installations and roaming performers.”
