Amazing Aerial Footage of Tomorrowland 2012

Tomorrowland is a place where Yesterday is history, Today is a gift, and Tomorrow is a mystery - and this video truly captures the magic of the largest EDM festival in the world! Big shoutout to our fan Rutger Geerling for sending this our way, it's sure to be a huge hit on the web! Be sure to watch this one in full screen!

Here's what the photographer Rutger Geerling had to say about the footage on his blog:

"I’ve been wanting to do evening photoshoots from the sky at EDM events for years. However, Hollands tough safety laws don’t allow flying after dark. But even at earlier timeslots I had never managed to get a helicopter available to me for a shooting. Then, late June, luck turned. As senior photographer for Q-dance I was granted heli-time at Defqon.1, not just any slot – a LATE shot, the latest possible in Holland.

At exactly 22:05 I took off for a 20 minute shoot in which I could expand my imagination to the limits. Thanks also to the new camera equipment like the Canon 1Dx (amazing noise-levels at 800-1600ISO) and the stabilizer from the 70-200IS II telelens, also by Canon, the photos came out incredibly good with never before seen camera-angles. I immediately wanted to up the ante: Tomorrowland was just weeks away and in Belgium one is allowed to do nighttime flights. I explained the organizers my plan to do something never been done before: a risky shoot over the mainstage during the massive fireworks! With a simple “make it happen” things were set in motion: a time-slot was reserved for me and all that was left was mentally preparing myself for the technically difficult shoot ahead.”

Review: GET LOUD! Music Festival, Washington D.C.

I celebrated 4/20 at the DUBTRO presents GET LOUD! Music Festival, at the Warehouse Loft in DC. The venue was sick, with a huge outdoor stage and 4 indoor stages featuring all different types of sounds. My favorite acts of the night were FIGURE and DC Native, Chooky.

A regular name in the realms of dubstep and drumstep, FIGURE held down the outdoor stage. Spinning original tracks such as "Cut Throat" and his latest tune "The Brink," which he released last weekend for free, FIGURE threw down a hard set which definitely did not go unnoticed. At the end of his performance, FIGURE dropped a moombahton track which he told the audience he had just finished; keep your eyes peeled for it, because it was dirty and massive! This insanely talented heavy bass producer is a must-see live!

Up-and-coming Chooky took one of the indoor stages by storm. Competing for the same time-slot as Mord Fustang, he was able to maintain and command a room full of fans. His transitioning from moombahton originals and remixes to electro-house, and closing out with dubstep kept the crowd dancing. He included a live vocal performance by Carly Burns, "Good as Gold" and 'Shapeshifter" which are set to be released by Subdrive this summer. I spoke with Chooky, who said he has a lot of dubstep/electro house tracks in the works. Be on the lookout for these, and download his tracks for free on Soundcloud.
