FLY Open Air has announced names for its September festival, and it’s looking as special as ever.
The party will take place at the iconic Edinburgh Castle — a venue it secured after more than 6,000 people signed a petition to Edinburgh’s council to keep the festival at the world heritage site following a battle to reduce the size of the event.
Members of Edinburgh City Council have spoken out about the growing trend of “silent discos” taking place on the Scottish Capital’s streets.
In an interview given to the Edinburgh Evening News, Conservative City Centre councillor Jo Mowatt spoke of the council’s attempt to curb the popular walking (dancing) tours that have been parading through the city’s main streets.
Calvin Harris – the highest paid DJ in the world – has said he is “too old” to go on tour.
In a recent appearance with Sam Smith on Scotland’s Forth 1 show, Boogie & Arlene, the EDM superstar (34) spoke about how he much prefers studio work to playing live and explained that he has no intention of going on tour anytime soon. You can listen to the interview below.
It’s an unseasonably hot day in London when DJ Mag sets off to meet Theo Kottis. A Scottish producer with a story to tell, Kottis is based in Edinburgh, a mere four-hour train ride from London's Kings Cross. Green fields and country homes whip past our window as we snake our way up to the Scottish border, the temperature dropping steadily in the approach to Kottis’ historic hometown.
There's a festival going down on the tiny Scottish Isle of Skye this year.
Taking place on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd September, Skye Live boasts an eclectic electronic and techno line-up and will take place in late September in Portree.
Denis Sulta, Vessels, Fort Romeau, Or:la and Moxie are among the names set to play the two-day festival that is accessible by ferry and train. Eclair Fifi will also be curating part of the line-up, hosting Saoirse, Big Miz and Afrodeutsche.
There’s a clever simplicity to Terminal V’s Easter all-day festival: three rooms, three pulverising soundsystems and an impeccable line-up of house and techno. The location for today’s Easter soiree is the Royal Highland Centre just outside Edinburgh city centre — and while it might sound a bit posh for a rave — it really isn’t. The venue is a set of uninviting warehouses at the end of Edinburgh airport’s runway where noise complaints almost certainly won’t be a problem.
Around the time his mum passed away, Jack Revill met Calum Spencer on Byers Road in Glasgow. “Are they real vinyl records?” he asked in awe of the shiny slabs of wax in his Fopp carrier bag. The 12-year-old wee scamp then took the afternoon off so his new pal could show him how to mix tunes by Yomanda, David Morales, Alice Deejay and Basement Jaxx. And immediately, he was hooked.
Glasgow Summer Sessions is Scotland’s only annual outdoor city music event offering a series of concerts in the city’s stunning Bellahouston Park, featuring some of the world’s biggest dance music stars – including Steve Angello and David Guetta.
We have 3 pairs of tickets to give away for the David Guetta concert on 16th August.
