Last winter, Electric Paradise attracted over 12,000 attendees for their inaugural festival, and it’s coming back for more on December 19th, along with a great lineup to match. With just over 30 artists set to perform, Electric Paradise has upped the ante and continues to hold the title of being the largest dance music festival in the Caribbean. The one-day festival will include performances from high-profile, main stage-friendly acts such as Skrillex, Diplo, Steve Angello, Porter Robinson, Cashmere Cat, and more, as well as indie-leaning and underground acts like AlunaGeorge, Nicolas Jaar, Guy Gerber, and Hot Since 82, amongst others. Additionally, a grip of local acts like the house duo, Lash, Dav Motta, and more will be rounding it all out to bring vibes cultivated within the Dominican Republic.
Electric Paradise is sure to be a bliss-filled affair, especially with these names on the bill, so treat yourself before the holidays, and grab your ticket here.

A few days ago Pete Tong premiered Steve Angello’s long awaited single “Yeah” on BBC Radio 1. And when I say long awaited, I mean loooong. The first time I heard this track was all the way back in February. I liked it back then, but over the months with the added hype and occasional appearance at festivals I’ve become somewhat obsessed. I’ve always had an unabashed love for the more electro-house and progressive genres and this track perfectly nails the energy and driving beat that makes for club anthems. Soon to be released September 29th on Angello’s own Size Records, make sure to check it out and know it’s name, this is one track thats is going to be heard MUCH more in the coming months.
