The Summer of EDM Festivals

0

First of all, I know I’m a horrible blogger for barely posting anything in the past month. But what can I say? I was super busy from hearing all these crazy festivals hitting Toronto this summer! I hope my readers will be stopping by to this beautiful (and crazy) city to check out the numerous concerts that are brought to you by fellow music promoters.

Within just one month, four major new festivals were announced through social networks with some of the biggest international DJ’s and Producers headlining it. Toronto is used to having to accommodate weekly EDM events throughout the city, but having a two day, 12 hour festival featuring various genres of the EDM community? Never. That’s why I’m more excited than ever to be living in Toronto this summer to experience all four hometown shows, I hope all of you have the same opportunity as well.

To celebrate these announcements and welcoming, as well as promoting international to local DJ’s, I have compiled a list of mix tapes of DJ’s that will be hitting Toronto this summer. Because believe it or not, this summer will be all about the EDM Festivals.

Which one are you most excited for? Tweet at us through @_RoomNoise or Like us on Facebook.

One of my biggest regrets was not discovering Bag Raiders until early last year. I must say that their self-titled album is still one of my top 5 favourite albums of all-time. If you haven’t heard their name before, I’m sure you’ve heard their single, ‘Shooting Stars’ in commercials to the ending credits of How To Make it in America (RIP). Earlier this week these Australian duo’s released their monthly mixtape. Enjoy and definitely check out more songs from these guys!

I cannot believe that this is the last Remix Fridays post of 2011. So many great remixes out there this year, and I’m happy to end this year’s last RF post with a single remixed by Gosteffects and Rule of Eight. It’s already been ahuge hit online, so when I got sent this I had to make sure to end this year with the right track. Enjoy your last Friday of 2011.
