3DM Music Festival Hits Providence RI Nov 1st


On November 1st, music festivals will be taken to a whole new dimension – literally. With the advent of an entire dance music festival presented in stunning high-energy 3D, the generic music festival lineup will never be quite the same. Once the glasses go on, their senses will be immersed in the 3D visuals surrounding the stage transforming them from an audience into participants.

The 3DM concept employs the power of multiple screens secured above and all around a concert venue, such that the intensity of a light show literally envelops the room. Imagine the experience of being in a dance club as onstage DJs rock the house, with lights swirling and pulsating—only in this incarnation, three-dimensional visuals from a staggering hundreds of LED light panels transform the night into a seeming live-action geometric kaleidoscope of catapulting, chatoyant, flashing full-color lights that literally permeate the audience.

DJ Mag Reveals the Artists Who Missed the Top 100


Once again, the DJ Mag Top 100 upheld its annual tradition of p*ssing everyone off, as everyone got outraged at what everyone else voted for.

In case you didn’t know, Hardwell is once again the No.1 DJ on the planet.

Now DJ Mag France has revealed the next 50 entries after the top 100. EDM staples such as Simon Patterson, Paul Oakenfold, and Mat Zo pepper the list. There is also a number of new entries, while superb acts like Disclosure and Flume still bafflingly don’t make the top 100.

Swedish House Mafia, who disbanded in 2013, came in at 103.

Bassnectar, who had previously voiced his aversion to the DJ Mag Top 100, scraped in at 150.

1 Year at #1. Exodus & Hugo Rizzo top the charts with TIESTO & BT


Topping the biggest DJ on the planet’s chart is an amazing accomplishment. But doing it for an entire year… WOW.

Peak Hour Music’s head honcho EXODUS teamed up with longtime friend and PHM artist Hugo Rizzo to not only put their our spin on the legendary song from Tiesto & BT, but completely reinvent an anthem into an anthem for today’s generation.

We caught up with Exodus, who’s known for hits like “We Are Your Friends”, “Smash” “Hands High” and more, to chat about this accomplishment.

TIESTO TOP NUM 1 BT NUM 1 magik muzik num 1

“WOW! I really can’t believe it! I’m so happy and proud to say that Hugo and I have been able to do something that is recognized around the world on every dance floor, on the radio, and sung by thousands of people at every festival. It’s an amazing honor to have been a part of this release, and I’m glad we were able to step up to the plate and hit a homerun! It’s been exactly 1 year today since the release of Tiësto feat BT “Love Comes Again” (Exodus & Hugo Rizzo Remix) was released and we’re STILL the #1 selling releases for Tiesto, BT & Magik Muzik (Black Hole Recordings)!!! Thank you for all the support and for making this one of the largest releases of my career to date! Thank you for letting me live my dream. Exodus-“


Thank you for your amazing commitment to our music, as we continue to watch your career grow with every release.

How Afrojack Became One Of The Biggest Names In EDM

With upwards of 7 million “likes” on Facebook, Afrojack, aka Nick van de Wall, is arguably one of the most successful DJ’s in the EDM scene, and he’s got the $300,000 Rolls-Royce to prove it. Love him or hate him, you can’t deny that, for good reasons, Afrojack’s is one of the biggest names in our scene. Raking in an estimated $22m last year (The World’s Richest DJs), the dude must be doing something right. According to him, however, he “ain’t no where near balling.”


Forbes Life recently published an a-day-in-the-life sort of article submerging us into the exhilarating chaos that is Afrojack’s life. In it, we learn how Afrojack went from being the proud owner of a $1000 1989 Suzuki Swift, to owning several cars including a $300,000 Rolls-Royce and a Ferarri 458, which is his second one; he crashed his first one within 2 hours of buying it, ironically, while driving at slow speed of 45 miles per hour.

Beyond cars and sushi, the article details the long road to stardom that shaped Afrojack into the artist he is today. From DJing for 50+ hours a week at 200 euros/week, to driving 100,000 kilometers (62,137 miles) per year with an even heavier workload of preforming in five different cities every weekend. I

Three Deaths Reported In Amsterdam At ADE

To the dismay of many, it has been reported that two deaths have occurred at the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) this past week. Although both causes have not been confirmed, it is stated by local press that drugs may have been involved. The two individuals who passed away were a twenty-one year old Dutchman, and a thirty-three year old Serbian man. A statement was released by ADE’s director, which you can read below. It pains us to have to report these incidents, but our sympathies go out to those individuals close to these two men. For you ravers out there, let this serve you as a reminder to be safe and responsible, no matter your age.

“The ADE organization is shocked by these tragic accidents. We are in close contact with all of the venues, municipalities and emergency services that are part of the ADE Festival and every precaution is taken to ensure the safety and security of the audience at all participating venues. Each venue is responsible for its own security and door policy and a comprehensive inspection is also completed at every venue entrance.

Drug use is not tolerated in any way and ADE and its partners make every effort to ensure that people are behaving responsibly at the event. Ultimately there is a limit to what we can do and individuals must take responsibility for their own actions. Our thoughts are with the families and friends at this time and we would like to express our deepest sympathy to them.”
– Richard Zijlma, ADE Director

Update: It has now been reported that a third attendee of ADE passed away yesterday morning at the hospital. The police has reported that the cause of the 41 year old woman’s death was related to drug use.
