HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ‘HEARTFELDT POOL PARTY BY SAM FELDT’ ANNOUNCED FOR ADE 2017

Platinum-selling Dutch DJ and producer Sam Feldt returns to Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) this year with his ‘Heartfeldt Pool Party by Sam Feldt’ event at Sloterparkbad Amsterdam on the 18th October 2017.

The eagerly-awaited event will see the ‘Fade Away’ hitmaker serve up another fun-filled evening of his phenomenal pool party series, which has so far taken the dance music calendar by storm, with sell-out shows at Miami Music week (MMW) back in March, and previous ADE events in 2015 and 2016.

With the likes of Lost Frequencies, Kungs, Lucas & Steve, (and a very special guest appearance from Armin van Buuren) joining Sam at his last ADE pool party in 2016, this year’s edition of the ‘Heartfeldt Pool Party by Sam Feldt’ looks set to be the most impressive so far, with another huge lineup set to join the Dutch producer.

Having already gained a Beatport #1 with his tropical rework of Robin S’ ‘Show Me Love’ which amassed over 200 million combined streams and sold over 1 million singles, Sam Feldt has become one of the most in-demand names in dance music.

His latest single ‘Fade Away’ (feat. INNA) with Lush & Simon, has already been streamed over 6 million times and looks destined for similar success, with the official video garnering over 3 million views within one week of release.

Currently in the midst of a hectic summer schedule which includes performances at Tomorrowland, Creamfields, and various Ibiza dates, including Pacha, and Ushuaia, Sam spoke of his excitement ahead of the pool party at the five-day electronic music conference, stating, “I can’t believe we’re getting ready for the third edition of the Heartfeldt Pool Party! After the sold-out editions in Amsterdam during ADE last year and in Miami during Miami Music Week, this edition will be bigger and better! And most importantly… with loads of inflatable unicorns!”

With Sam’s previous ADE pool-party selling out in just 9 hours, the 2017 ‘Heartfeldt Pool Party by Sam Feldt’ is set to follow suit and is sure to be one of the most in-demand and fun-filled events of the ADE schedule. The first release of tickets for the event will go live at 4pm CEST today for all those ‘Heartfeldters’ signed up to Sam’s engagement portal – Heartfeldt.me, with general release taking place on Thursday 27th July.

Tiësto Announces CLUBLIFE Vol. 5: China

Tiësto announces the release of his fifth installment to his CLUBLIFE series with CLUBLIFE VOL. 5: China, via his record label, Musical Freedom. Inspired by the momentum of dance music culture in China, VOL. 5 is dedicated to the country as a whole. This installment leans heavily on Tiēsto’s own exclusive original productions, remixes of his personal favorite tracks as well as emerging talent from his Musical Freedom label. CLUBLIFE VOL. 5 follows four critically-acclaimed volumes released in years prior and inspired by Las Vegas, Miami, Stockholm and most recently, New York City.

In an open letter to fans, published in advance of the dance music legend’s headlining set at Tomorrowland, Tiësto elaborates on the importance of China:

My CLUBLIFE series began with Las Vegas, and later volumes have been inspired by Miami, Stockholm, and New York. These cities influence me on a personal level, but also represent places that are moving dance music forward. It felt only natural that the backdrop for the next installment of CLUBLIFE be a country with energy, creativity, and originality. A place where DJs and fans are taking new risks within the genre and culture of dance music, helping it evolve as a truly global community and sound.”

Dance music lovers attending Tomorrowland will have the opportunity to utilize free Wifi while traveling through Brussels Airport (BRU), provided by Tiësto. Upon connecting, users will be informed of CLUBLIFE VOL. 5’s announcement and given the opportunity to pre-save the album to their Spotify accounts. Tiësto will headline Tomorrowland, where festival attendees will have the opportunity to hear exclusives from the forthcoming album.

With a remarkable career spanning over 20 years, Tiësto remains one of the top dance music acts in the world. Revered for his live shows as well as for his production and remix work, Tiësto is a globally celebrated DJ that has been named “The Greatest DJ of All Time” by Mixmag and the #1 DJ by Rolling Stone. Through revolutionary moments such as being the first DJ to open the Olympic Games and headlining festivals like Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Stereosonic, Tomorrowland, Ultra and more, he has helped pave the way for today’s modern music landscape. His 2014 album, A Town Called Paradise, yielded Tiësto his first platinum single in the United States with “Wasted” [featuring Matthew Koma] and his first gold single “Red Lights.” In 2015, Tiësto was awarded a Grammy® in the Best Remixed Recording, Non Classical category for his remix of John Legend’s “All Of Me.” This was Tiësto’s first Grammy Award and second Grammy nomination.

ABODE In The Park release 2​nd​ phase of acts including Solardo, Lauren Lane, Richy Ahmed, wAFF and Alexis Raphael.

Α fortnight has passed since ABODE In The Park revealed their 1st wave of artists and arena hosts. After a packed-out ABODE stage at the weekend’s Lovebox Festival, the team are now ready to reveal artist announcement number 2.  Solardo, Alexis Raphael, Sidney Charles & Sante, Richy Ahmed, Lauren Lane and wAFF will join Darius Syrossian, Detlef, Infinity Ink, Josh Butler, Secondcity and Yousef on the burgeoning bill.

Let us start with an act who spun records at the first ever ABODE shindig 3 years ago in Greenwich. wAFF is a DJ famed for his antics behind the decks, party mentality and hedonistic set building. With his ABODE history in mind it was fitting he join the crew for their first ever festival. He’s joined by fellow Geordie and FourThirtyTwo boss Richy Ahmed. Richy has taken his label and party series to Ibiza’s Vista Club this season, proving a huge hit on the white isle. Richy has been causing a fuss with his performances by taking a tougher, darker route with his programming. More of the same please Mr. Ahmed!

Next up, a duo who’s rise to fame has mirrored ABODE’s over the last 3 years and who now find themselves as arguably the hottest property in UK house music. When they play, festival stages reach tipping point, clubs hit capacity and crowds go wild – it’s Solardo. The announcements so far have focused on home-grown talent so now onto the international stars. Lauren Lane is an LA-based American DJ who honed her craft on New York’s notorious club circuit. With hits on Saved Records and Eats Everything’s Edible imprint, Lauren’s trademark sound will be instantly recognisable to UK fans.

Finally, original Sunday party-instigator, Alexis Raphael joins the crew. Along with Cozzy D, Alexis paved the foundations for today’s Sunday party scene with the hugely successful Creche. ABODE drew inspiration from their Sunday exploits, having enjoyed many sunny afternoons as their guests and now the favour is returned.

ABODE In The Park is shaping up to be one of the hottest house music festivals in London this Summer as 12,000 people descend on Finsbury Park for the brands inaugural festival.
