Stockholm Love Affair

Hey dear music lovers! 🙂 The past weekend the first Stockholm Love Affair festival took place here in Stockholm at Annexet, Globen.

Stockholm Love Affair was a new innovative idea in the more advanced electronic music scene. It took place on the 1st and second of April, as the need to cover a spring festival with a bigger touch in this music genre.

I found it extremely interesting and creative working on this event, since it was my first time experiencing a deeper side of the electronic music scene. The amount of people was overwhelming both on Friday and Saturday.

I tried to cover the mood in photos in general and not so much on the Dj close ups since I had a bit of a difficulty shooting in the dark.

All in all I believe that if this music is your cup of tea, you should definitely check it out next time if you haven’t already. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I did shooting them. 🙂

Have a great Sunday friends, with lots of music, and an even greater week! ❤

If you want to check out videos from the event, feel free to take a look on my Instagram page. 🙂

Year Of The Tiger

Hey dear friends! Today I found out some really great news regarding The Weekend Festival, obviously one of the biggest EDM festivals in Scandinavia. First of all, let’s start with the fact that I was not familiar with the festival at all, which made it even more interesting actually.

The Weekend Festival is a Finnish, EDM festival that started back in 2012, and this year, in summer 2016 it is going to take place for the first time ever in Stockholm, Sweden as well. In Ă–stermalm’s IP stadium, with the capacity of 25,000 people on the 5th and 6th of August, some of the world’s greatest Dj’s will be in town, to dress our summer in the most powerful colors of electronic and dance music.

If you are feeling really passionate and excited about these kinds of festivals, kind of like myself, I believe that the promo video of the festival’s Swedish version  that was published a couple of days ago, will blow your mind.

You can register for pre-sale on the official website weekendsweden.com , to make sure that you get your tickets on time as the festival has always been sold out.

The most recent artist confirmations are :

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Fatboy Slim, DJ Bl3nd, Showtek, Bass Jackers, DVBBS, Will Sparks, TJR, Steve Aoki, Aron Chupa, Jack Perry, Matisse & Sadko, Mr. Belt & Wezol, Sigala, Watermät, Deorro, Martin Garrix, Micheal Calfan, Tigerlily, Rebecca & Fiona, Madcon, Lost Frequencies, Redfoo, Infected Mushroom (Live), Tungervaag & Raaban, Tiesto. 

Feel free to take a look on the official poster and the promo video, just to get a feeling of what this is going to be about! 🙂

Have a great day / night my friends and an even greater weekend with lots of music! 🙂

November Lights Experience

Last night one of the biggest and most fancy Swedish festivals took place in Globen, Stockholm ; November Lights.

To be really honest with my words, it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. November lights is a sister festival to Summerburst, the electro house festival that takes place every summer in Gothenburg and Stockholm. A festival that I actually never had the chance to go to.

With that been said and with the passion that I have in my heart for dance and electronic music along with my DJing background and with my experience and knowledge of being a part of the Select DJ family, what more can I say except that last night was a night to remember.

I had noticed a while back but never admitted it out loud, that Sweden is a House music country. I had my doubts though, since so many other kinds of music are made and produced successfully here but, when we talk about house and electro music, we are talking about an experience on a whole new level. We are talking not only about the music itself, but about the whole impression of any house event would leave you with.

To mention a few words about my personal experience of last night’s festival, it was like I left this life of mine for a night, this spirit of mine and this body, and I went to a magic land. A land full of music, laser lights, colors, bubbles, glitter, flashing lights, smiles, dance, party, high technology equipment, neon make-up , and the beating of your heart that became stronger and stronger every time the mixing reached its highlight moments. Smoke, excitement, happy people, boys and girls being totally spontaneous, sharing a passion for the same thing, staring all towards the same direction, towards a huge scene full of a high definition sparkly graphics.

This feeling and actually “burden” if I am allowed to use this word, that Djs have or at least are supposed to have, to me it seems like it should be about serving a higher purpose. Serving a purpose of being not only a DJ at this point, not only a performing artist or a vocalist. At this point you are way beyond that. You are an entertainer. You are the one who is going to drop the sickest beat within the next second and you are going to make the 10.000 people in front of you dance so hard, that they are going to make the whole building move. To me this is what dance music is all about. And last night I remembered why I took this DJ class and why I love playing music and make people glad when I have the chance.

I truly hope and wish that I have the chance to be there in Summerburst 2016 and relive all of this on an even higher level. What are your thoughts about house and electro music? Is it something that makes your heart pump like a 5 year old? Have you ever been to a festival like this? I would love to hear about your experiences!

Feel free to take a look on the moments that we captured on our camera 🙂 The pictures are from the sets of Nervo, Knife Party, Orjan Nilssen and Armin Van Buuren.

Have a great night/ day my friends and a greater week with lots of music! 🙂
