Sunrise Festival [7/22/17 – 7/23/17 Poland]

Every single day, somewhere on our beloved planet, there is a concert, an event, a festival or a good old pool party where people’s souls and hearts move in the rhythm of EDM. Some big, some not so much, music festivals come in many shapes and colors. Although we’ve been to many festivals in the US, something about going to an international festival is indescribable! Every year in July, Polish seashore town known as Kolobrzeg and its amphitheater turns for three days into the EDM capital of this part of the world. As Rowdy Beats’ international representative I had had a pleasure to attend this magnificent music festival two year in the row and guess what … This year won’t be any different! July 21, 22 and 23 will set the bar for the rest of European music festivals this summer.

Imagine this: Sun slowly rising to the sound of electronic dance music, flowers in wind-blown hair, unconditional love, sweat running down everyone’s moving in euphoria bodies and people without whom all of it would be dead silent – World’s Greatest DJs. You and your friends are pregaming in lane to the entrance surrounded by already pretty rowdy crowd from Poland, Germany, Ukraine, France, USA and all over the world! You’ve had tickets waiting on a shelf for this day for months, because the festival sold out in a matter of days once. You are getting closer to the main gate and all of the sudden it hits you. The increasingly louder, but still distant base coming somewhere from the main stage, as if coming from under water. You can feel and hear your heart beating faster, your hands start to sweat a little and you feel the wave of chills going down your spine in excitement. You walk in. You look down at your phone to check out the lineup. Oliver Heldens, Armin Van Burren, Klingade, Nervo, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, Don Diablo. Wow … You are home. It’s Friday, the night is young, you know that this is going to be the weekend of your life. [Sunrise Festival]

Top 12 Highest Paid DJs


When it comes to the music industry, money flows like the Niagara Falls. With countless shows and festivals, the EDM industry is turning out to be a lucrative hobby/business. We were fairly surprised by some of the names on this list, especially with #1. We also thought that Hardwell or Zedd would be on this list along with some other big names.  Nonetheless, there are some that consider these top DJs to be “sellouts”, what do you think? Check out this video below by Forbes:

Top 5 EDM Festivals [USA] – Summer 2013!


It’s summer. The kids are out of school, the weather is awesome, the birds are chirping, and you have nothing to do but to sit at home watching TV mindlessly or what have you. Here is a recommendation – go to one of these music festivals! Whether you’re an EDM lover or not, you’re sure to have an amazing time at one of these banging festivities that feature some of the top djs/producers along with the craziest, most riveting, gnarly crowds. With that said, we have accumulated our top picks for the festivals that you should try to go to this summer 2013.

1. TomorrowWorld

When/Where: Sept 27-29, 2013; Atlanta, GA

Headliners: Tiësto, Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Afrojack, Steve Aoki

Rowdy Factor: We really don’t need to say much about this festival. Aside from featuring 300 acts, the sister to its European TomorrowLand (which sold all 180,00 tickets in a matter of opening minutes), this festival will create the illusion of a fairytale world with meticulous attention to the tiniest details. The campgrounds will be called “DreamVille” for god’s sake! We all want to get away from reality and this is our chance.

Basic Cost: 3-days – $347

2. Sun City Music Festival

When/Where: Aug. 31 – Sept 1, 2013; Ascarte Park// El Paso, TX

Headliners: Armin Van Buuren, Tiësto, Steve Aoki, Alesso

Rowdy Factor: This is SCMF’s third year, and the line up does not disappoint. With DJ Mag’s top DJ Armin Van Buuren and some other big names such as Adventure Club, Flosstradamus, the festival takes place in Ascarte Park. Ascarte park features 400+ acres of a natural backdrop which will be the perfect compliment to the electric atmosphere at this venue.

Basic Cost: 2-days – $120

3. Electric Zoo

When/Where: Aug. 30 – Sept. 1// New York, NY

Headliners: Avicii, Bassnectar, Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Steve Aoki, Sebastian Ingrosso,

Rowdy Factor: Electric Zoo is located on Randall’s Island Park, which as the name implies, is on an island in the heart of New York City (between Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx). As can be expected from the number one city in the United States, its lineup is equally as epic, with all of the producers and DJ’s you would expect at a world-famous festival+the Bass God himself, Bassnectar.

Basic Cost: $359-weekend pass (Fri-Sunday)

4. Lollapalooza

When/Where: August 2nd-4th//Chicago, IL

EDM Artists (not necessarily headlining): Steve Angello, Steve Aoki, Knife Party, Major Lazer, Dillon Francis, GRiZ, Baauer, Kill the Noise.

Rowdy Factor: Easily the biggest festival in the Midwest, taking place in the heart of Chicago right next to the lakeside; Lollapalooza offers one of the most diverse lineups of any festival in the world (and as such, cannot be considered an “EDM” festival, but its good to be well-rounded!). With superstars of Pop, Rock, and EDM, colliding, you know it’s going to be riot.

Basic Cost: $235 (unfortunately, already sold out)

5. Electric Daisy Carnival

When/Where: June 21-23//Las Vegas, NV

Headliners: Afrojack, Knife Party, Armin Van Buuren, Avicii, Tiësto +others

Rowdy Factor: A carnival for grown ups. Featuring rides, attractions, lights, and the biggest name artists in the world. EDC will leave you feeling like a child going to a carnival for the first time. It offers a whole new spin on music festivals, and is truly unlike any other event in the world.

Basic Cost: Next year’s pricing TBA
