Dance Music’s Biggest Festival Tomorrowland releases:
‘The Story of Planaxis’
Mixed by Armin Van Buuren, Axwell,
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Lost Frequencies
TRACKLISTING: 3 x mixed CD compilation – 62 tracks in total
Release date: OUT NOW
Listen HERE (Mini mix)
Tomorrowland launches a CD in three volumes with exclusive sets by international DJs Armin Van Buuren, Axwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Lost Frequencies and exclusive Tomorrowland Summer Mix compilation.
Hands up anyone that has been to Tomorrowland? Those lucky enough to have visited arguably the largest festival in the world will tell you that it is an extraordinary experience. Located in the aptly named town of ‘Boom’ in Belgium, now in its 14th year, the sheer scale of the festival will overwhelm you. Think 16 stages, 400,000 people from over 75 countries split over two glorious weekends all with a will to dance.
Tomorrowland is a step beyond the conventional big festival, going all out on design, creating another world for the time that you are with them. The main stage itself is extraordinary, gigantic in size and scale with pyrotechnics, state of the art lighting and sound and packing a wow factor that would be hard to experience on this scale anywhere else.
The festival has steadily grown, due in large part to mainstream pop culture’s continued embrace of this decade’s Electronic Dance Music explosion. It eclipses some of the biggest events in the world when compared to internet social media chitter chatter. Tomorowland amasses more tweets, insta and FB posts than Glastonbury, Burningman, Cochella, and Ultra music festivals combined. Even more than the F1, Wimbeldon, The Oscars and Tour De France put together.
This year the theme is ‘The Story of Planaxis’ – a kind of lost city of Atlantis idea, think magical submerged cities, extraordinary sea creatures and underwater mystery and the namesake of this year’s compilation.
Now some of the festivals biggest names bring you their take on the Tomorowland sound. While Armin van Buuren, Axwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Lost Frequencies conquer the Mainstage during the first weekend, you can also enjoy the legendary mash-ups of their best tracks at home. The four DJs all made special 30-minute sets, exclusive to the first 2 volumes of ‘The Story of Planaxis’. The third volume offers a unique Tomorrowland Mix 2018.
Either as a memento of your experience or those that just want to sample the flavour of this incredible festival, this compilation will bring you a snapshot of the biggest tracks and high-octane moments of the event.
This is a download and physical release only including a Deluxe edition with 40-page booklet, and special copper hot foil embossed packaging. The CD is available now through Cr2 Records for the UK / IE and worldwide on iTunes through various WW outlets and record stores or online at www.tomorrowland.com.
The dust has just settled after an unforgettable weekend spent under the sun and absorbed in the music.After a successful first edition, Labyrinth Production took their concept back to Croatia for a second stunning time.The festival took place for the again on the breathtaking beaches of Omis, near Split.Camping Galeb has been confirmed as the perfect location to host this brilliant event full of art, music , food and technology on July 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th.The Backstage Access took its chance to attend the festival on Saturday 14th when this magical event was set to end with a boom.How not to fall for the relaxed atmosphere you breath at Camp Galeb? And we found the nicest crowd of party goers ever.The event takes over at 4.30pm and we just wander around taking pics of the 3 amazingly crafted stages, recording videos of us chilling in the water announcing that our interview with no other than Guy J himself is gonna take place right on the Island stage later that day.The Island stage is right on the beach, so you can just swim in the crystal clear water of the Adriatic sea while listening to your favorite dj playing.We took our time to enjoy some sun on the shore, have a refreshing croatian beer, and checking out every angle of the Camp, a jewel nested in paradisiac landscape.We rate 10/10 the organization, everything was just perfect and made it so enjoyable for us to attend the festival.Our personal highlights has been the mammoth 9 hours b2b set performed by the superstar djs Hernan Cattaneo and Guy J at the Island stage.We’ve had the chance to spend some time with them on their booth and it really made our night.Their progressive vibes blended amazingly with our festival mood, happy and peaceful.While at the main stage between the trees, you could breath a totally different yet so charming atmosphere.Dark techno vibes were blasting from Amelie Lens starting from midnight, spectacular pyros accompanied her energetic gig until Len Faki took over the stage to close the party at 4 am.
This second edition looked bigger and even better than the previous and Labyrinth Open it’s destined to grow exponentially in the next years, we highly recommend you to pay a visit! Hands down The best summer festival you could wish for.

Multi-platinum-selling artist, Hardwell, is taking OVER Ushuaïa on two monumental occasions
this summer. On June 28th and September 6th, partygoers will enjoy the feel-good sound of
Hardwell’s chart-topping tracks at the world’s best open-air stage.
Former 2 x World Number #1 DJ, Hardwell found his fame in the dance music world. As a
producer, he’s created some of dance music’s iconic tracks and continuously fills up
stadiums across the world with his global headliner status. Hardwell is a master of his own
unique style that fuses big room house and electro into powerful grooves that come on his
own Revealed Recordings in the form of tracks like his recent dance hit ‘Power’ with KSHMR
and recent Hardwell & Friends Ep 3.
Playing at the world’s best festivals including Ultra Music Festival, EDC Las Vegas,
Coachella, EXIT and Tomorrowland, Hardwell guaranteed there was space in his relentless
mainstage schedule to perform at the most talked about open-air club.
We came in a few minutes before he took the stage and the place was packed with enthusiastic party people dancing and enjoying their time with friends.
Once again Hardwell’s just blown our minds with his catchy, powerful beats, he surely knows how to rock a full packed open air club like this with his contagious energy and happiness.
Out of this world pyrotechnics are accompanying his fenomenal gig, as well as mind-blowing lighting, visuals and that massive sound system Ushuaïa proudly owns.
Confetti, streamers and CO2 are making us feel like we are attending one hell of a festival and while midnight strikes and Hardwell’s signs off leaving the stage, an excited group of party goers struggle to reach him for a selfie to make this night unforgettable.
Kind and down to earth as the great human being he is, he finds the time for his fans before leaving the venue while a huge smile is still on our faces about this inimitable Ushuaïa experience.
David Guetta is returning to Ushuaïa Ibiza for the seventh season this year, bringing with him a collection of the dance industry’s finest acts.
BIG by David Guetta is indeed taking over Ushuaïa Ibiza every Monday from June 4th to September 24th, and just as the name suggests, guests are in store massive productions – with a lineup to match. The platinum-selling artist has assembled a posse of the most-sought-after artists to join him on the open-air stage, including fan-favourites Afrojack, Robin Schulz, and Oliver Heldens. Boasting many respected DJ names such as Don Diablo, Alesso, Jonas Blue, HUGEL and LOVRA, just to name a few, BIG by David Guetta is in check to the best selling show on Ibiza for the 7th year running.
While the full lineup with dates can be viewed on Ushuaïa Ibiza website, a short preview
reveals the high calibre of this season’s roster including Feder, Jax Jones,
GLOWINTHEDARK, Lost Kings, Brooks, LOVRA, Deepend and Klingande.
From the mammoth main stage to the lake shaped pool, Ushuaïa Ibiza is not known to
compromise on lavish productions. But BIG by David Guetta is strikingly more extravagant
than any other event. With one more special guest to be announced, event organisers
have saved the best for last, promising to reveal another powerhouse DJ act soon. Featuring David Guetta, the most sought-after artist in the electronic music scene, tickets to his event are known to sell in a flash.
Forget Monday as you know it, a traumatic day you usually can’t wait to get through in the less painful possible way, David Guetta redefines it for you, to transform it in the most cheerful day of the week here at Ushuaïa.
Let’s dive in this festive atmosphere with the king of Ibiza, let the massive sound system embrace you and just go nuts following the French mastermind in what he describes as a musical journey into the music, pleasing the crowd with some of his famous hits and surprising us with some other gems like Eminem’s Lose Yourself mixed into Voices from Dawn from Adriatique.
When the sun begins to set and departing aircrafts fly above our heads reminding us in what a magical place we’re in, the dancers throw multi colored glow sticks at us, so we jump on the bandwagon and wave them in the air!
Lasers, streamers and confetti are the best buddies of David Guetta at his residency in the epic open-air club while stunning visuals will drag you into the very core of his beats.
A few minutes before midnight the production kept getting BIGger. The audience reached for their phones frantically trying to get a snapshot as an acrobatic dancer flew through the air above our raised hands. She swung from a hundred glowing white balloons, for what we can call some magical minutes.
Our yearly visit to the White Island would not be the same without checking our favorite colony out!As always, Saturdays means ANTS on Ibiza so The Backstage Access kept on dANTSing at Ushuaia, one of the most vibrant location of the whole party island.
ANTS have been gearing up for their return to Ibiza’s most frequented club while building a huge network of supporters from across the globe. Most recently, the colony championed shows in New York, Dubai, London and Hong Kong, plus festival appearances at Tomorrowland, Extrema Outdoor, Off Week Barcelona, South West Four and We Are FSTVL.
Eager party-goers will celebrate the colony’s homecoming in the true ANTS style, with the sweet sound of house and techno, spreading an authentic underground through the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel.
With the party’s true home at Ushuaïa Ibiza, the worshiped ANTS shows have helped shape the worldwide reputation of Ibiza’s best open-air club.
With resident buddies, David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Tinie Tempah, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike all performing their own weekly show, Ushuaïa Ibiza is in check for another unforgettable summer, welcoming crowds from all of the globe.
The jewel in Ibiza’s party crown, Ushuaïa’s dedication to bringing the most sought after names to their world-famous stage ensures they remain one step ahead of the game every time.
Renowned around the world for their legendary poolside parties, year after year the team behind the #1 open air clubs raises the bar ever higher, with an impeccable lineup of superstar residents from across the electronic music spectrum playing from daytime to midnight.
Not just content with packing their nights full of world class artists, Ushuaïa constantly outdoes itself when it comes to phenomenal productions, with a different theme each night of the week. With
incredible pyrotechnics, mind-blowing lighting, visuals and a state of the art soundsystem, not to mention the beautifully designed gogo costumes, as well as an abundance of confetti, streamers and CO2, it’s no surprise people flock from around the world for the inimitable Ushuaïa experience.
We have bene eagerly waiting for a chance to attend one of Maya Jane Coles gig and finally we made it, here, Ushuaia is the magical place where dreams come true!
We recommend you to attend this party if you are a fan of underground vibes! The crowd is eclectic, ranging from girls in bikinis to people on costumes or even fashionable dressed up, anything goes here, so it is really up to you. The party starts early in the afternoon so be sure to wear comfortable shoes and light clothes.
You can even dANTS in the smaller pool sipping your favorite drink and making new friends.
Be sure to come early to get funny gadgets like ANTS tattoes and lovely merchandise but if you are coming later no worries, you can gear up at the Ushuaia store next to the entrance. My favorite time of the party, personally is right after the sunset, when the huge stage is all lighten up, the pyros will amaze you and the departing aircraft flying over your heads will add a sense of exclusivity to the whole experience.
The chilling breeze caressing the palms reminds you that you are on holiday having the time of your life, so just let your hair down and join the colony!
Following the announcement of a full club takeover and return to their original island home of Hï Ibiza,world-renowned DJ and production duo Tale Of Us have revealed their 15 weekly programs for the forthcoming season of their acclaimed party series Afterlife.
Whilst they will be returning to the original place where the residency
was launched under its current guise of Hï Ibiza, the parties themselves promise something different and adventurous.
The residency will be taking over both rooms, with music and production concepts
Visuals, bespoke lighting, installations and tailor-made production will play a large part in the residency, in line with Tale Of Us’ increasing interest in the wider spectrum of arts.
Add to that the now-iconic Afterlife man insignia above the dancefloor, state-of-the-art sound and a meticulous attention to aesthetic detail, partygoers will have a unique and all-encompassing experience.
This year’s line-up has been carefully curated into a singular musical journey, encompassing the melodic dancefloor sound Tale Of Us are best known for as well as more experimental and darker techno. The program includes some of the most popular names in Ibiza, with Dixon (28th June), Nina Kraviz (27th September), Ben Klock(30th August) and Âme (26th July, 16th August, September 27th) just a few of those set to appear on Thursday nights.
The residency is notable for its large roster of underground and upcoming artists, some of whom have never played Afterlife before, such as debutant Jon Hopkins (6th September) and for pioneers like Carl Craig (16th August) or Robert Hood (July 5th). Another tantalising addition is Maceo Plex, who becomes a key player with four sets planned, including an ‘All Night Long’ session in the Club room on 20th September. As usual, the Afterlife regulars and label artists are also in strong presence like Recondite, Mind Against, Adriatique, Vaal, Woo York, Agents Of Time, Patrice Bäumel and more.
An annual special night for Afterlife Ibiza falls on Carmine of Tale Of Us’ birthday, July 19th, when Raster-Noton luminary Alva Noto will begin the night with a special live concert before Tale Of Us play all night afterwards.
Details on the season closing party on October 4th are yet to be revealed, but
judging by the huge, three-room takeover Afterlife held for closing last year, it is set to be quite the finale.
Running every Thursday from the 28th June right through to the 4th October, Tale Of Us’ Afterlife 2018 looks set to be a game-changer for Ibiza, cementing Tale Of Us’ reputation as forward-thinking curators in addition to their well established status as genre-leading producers and DJs.
Book ahead at hiibiza.com.
The Backstage Access attended on July 5th witnessing a hell of a line up :
Adriatique, Robert Hood, Tale Of Us, Thugfucker and Âme!
Adriatique set the dance floor on fire from the very start with their signature sound, the whole crowded club just went off for the Swiss duo.
Afterlife is a totally immersive experience, the impressive sound system blasting it out so amazingly it doesn’t matter where you stand you always hear and feel the music perfectly.
The stunning laser game is charming and mesmerizing at the same time, while the Afterlife tribe dance under the iconic suspended upside down dummy that appears to raise its head when the light strikes it at a certain angle… A dark and mysterious atmosphere that leaves you quite disoriented for a while is hands down a pleasant surprise!
Talking about surprise… Taking a quick glance behind the booth, in the VIP area, a tall smiling guy is standing clearly enjoying what his boys Adriatique are doing….oh yes, we’re talking about Solomun, came to support these great artists!
One of the highlights of the night was a sick live set by Âme building its way to the introduction of the amazing Tale Of US
The club is packed until the closing and it really feels like people can’t get enough of it; we had a blast for sure and highly recommend you this experience!
The Ark Cruise Becomes First Cruise Festival to Accept Cryptocurrency,
‘World’s First Music Festival to Accept Ripple’s XRP Coin as Payment’
Whether you believe it to be nothing more than a passing fad, or think it’s the bank-disrupting phenomenon in the global payment environment that lives up to the hype, there’s no doubt cryptocurrencies are here to stay – even if only as a source of polarising conversation.
Named one of the most luxurious, surreal, and unique events by several music publications around the world, in 2018 The Ark Cruise now grants their guests the ability to secure tickets to their second edition this year by using Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), and Ethereum (ETH), in addition to standard methods of securing a festival ticket international party goers would expect. This makes The Ark the first cruise music festival ever to accept cryptocurrencies as a method of payment, via partnering with the Coinsbank payment gateway.
In addition to this, and another world first, The Ark has become the first music festival on Earth to accept Ripple’s XRP coin (the third largest in terms of market cap) as a method of payment, as part of the Coinsbank system. Ripple has made waves recently due to major partnerships with some of the world’s largest banking and money transfer institutions.
One of the planet’s most special and incredibly exclusive events, The Ark Cruise is the answer to the question of what you get when you combine a floating city populated by close to 5000 festival aficionados, with a heavy dose of some of the world’s biggest electronic dance music festival, with an added dash of four spectacular sun-drenched ports on The Mediterranean.
After kicking off their debut year with a sold out event in 2017 lauded by those in attendance, The Ark Cruise is expanding in 2018 with two back-to-back voyages of electronica on the sea, laden with some of the world’s best dance music talent including Luciano, Art Department, Loco Dice, Claptone, Patrick Topping, Camelphat, and many more.
Set to be hosted on the near $1 billion-dollar cruise ship Vision Of The Seas, The Ark will sail the Mediterranean for five days and four nights on each of their two voyages, departing Barcelona, with stints on land in Sete, Palma De Mallorca, and the notorious summer party island of Ibiza.
The Ark Cruise’s two voyages will set sail between August 30th – September 3rd and September 3rd – September 7th later this year, with a limited number of tickets remaining to become a “Chosen One” (The Ark’s name for its attendees) in all cabin categories available for purchase now.

But of course the cruise will consist of much more than parties. Culinary experts will make the guests feel at home in one of the many restaurants and they can use all the facilities of the ship, while THE ARK will add a whole series of extra activities.

Vitality Spa & Fitness Center
Outdoor Movie Screen
Art & Photo Gallery
The two-man front line, DJ/Producer Armin van Buuren and Producer Benno de Goeij (Rank1), have been recording and producing together since the ‘90s. After producing numerous successful albums and a variety of hit singles for Armin van Buuren it was time to form a new group/alter ego called GAIA to captivate the synthesis between old and new and transcend genres.
Armin van Buuren: “Trough out the years we created a variety of synths, beats and loops that were more underground and not always useable for my sound and genre and we always had so much fun exploring different genres we felt it was time to combine this under the name GAIA.”
GAIA is known for creating dance music that transcends genres and doesn’t shy away from experimenting with sounds from the underground of dance. Their exclusive live performance at Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) will showcase the unique blend of their greatest hits like “Tuvan” and “Crossfire” with unreleased tracks and impeccable visuals that will be mixed as striking and artfully as the music. Running from the introductory – and legendary – ‘4 Elements’ in 2000 to the reincarnation in 2009 with ‘Tuvan’ and all other uplifting masterpieces since, the track record of GAIA has driven countless fans wild over the past two decades. One of the most mysterious, beloved and – tongue in cheek – impeccably dressed duos of the past, current and even future electronic music generations. GAIA tracks may not come in quick succession, and the duos exclusive live performances may not clog up the schedules of innumerable festivals, so don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to see them live and hear the new sounds of GAIA.
GAIA will return to the stage to perform an exclusive live set during the ADE. The show that takes place on Wednesday night at the Paradiso which is one of Amsterdam’s finest venues, is an unique opportunity for GAIA fans to see them perform live again. This show is set out to be a spectacular experience that will leave Paradiso shaking on her grounds.
Tickets are available on Friday the 22nd of June via: http://bit.ly/GAIA-ADE
When: Wednesday October 17th
