Latest EDM News Highlights – February 22, 2019

Lightning in a Bottle 2019 Lineup includes Disclosure, Santigold, Big Gigantic, Lane 8
The “transformation” festival has found a new home

From its inception, Lightning in a Bottle set itself to be different, calling itself a “transformation” festival. The emphasis of the week-long event is to promote creative expression, social cohesion, and sustainability through workshops, talks and immersive art installations.

Over the years, the event’s co-founders and producers, The DoLaB, have used venues across California to host their annual celebrations, most recently, San Antonio Recreation Area in the Central California town of Bradley.

After announcing their move from Bradley in January, Lightning in a Bottle has revealed their new venue for 2019— Buena Vista Lake, just east of Bakersfield. The location change allows for not only an expanded footprint but for easier access, being directly off Interstate 5 and Highway 119, on the outskirts of Bakersfield.

Throughout the week, attendees to this year’s festival will be able to catch some big names in the electronic dance music scene. Set across three stages will be performances by Disclosure, Big Gigantic, Santigold, Walker & Royce + Ardalan (Escapade), Flying Lotus, Lane 8, Shiba San, Gramatik, Omnom, Damian Lazarus, VNSSA, Luttrell, G Jones and many more.

The 2019 edition of Lightning in a Bottle takes place May 8th – 13th at Buena Vista Lake in Central California. For tickets and camping passes CLICK HERE.

Key4050 (Bryan Kearney & John O’Callaghan) Release “Tales from the Temple” Album and Mini-Documentary 
The trance duo explain how Dublin’s Temple Theatre was a catalyst in their success

An album and a documentary are the culmination years in the making for two of the the biggest names in trance music. The project took over the trance music scene like a rocket and fans of the two artists have been asking for more ever since.

Key4050 is the name of the collaborative efforts by John O’Callaghan and Bryan Kearney, and showcases the Irishmen’s talents in production; seamlessly blending genres of trance music and creating a new sound along the way.

After years of unreleased tracks and live performances at some of the biggest trance festivals (Dreamstate, Transmission, Subculture, and EDC Mexico), Key4050 have finally released their debut album, “Tales from the Temple”.

Referring to the historic Temple Theatre in Dublin where the two first met, “Tales from the Temple” is also the name of the mini-documentary that was released alongside their album. The 25-minute-long video explains the backstory to their collaboration, as well as what the name Key4050 means (we won’t tell you, you’ll have to watch and find out).

Take a stroll down Dublin with Key4050 as they explain their storied past in “Tales from the Temple” below:

*Cardio tip: choose your favorite cardio machine (I like to alternate), and then perform at a pace that is difficult enough to where you are breaking a light sweat (60-70% of your max heart rate), but to where you could still keep a conversation going with someone if you had to.
