Lost Frequencies – Tomorrowland 2017 – As Tomorrowland‘s Amicorum Spectaculum opened its gates to record-breaking crowds for its inaugural weekend of 2017, not only did the insane production that the festival has become known to dazzle for, wow crowds beyond belief, but a whole host of electronic music royalty also descended onto the regal town of Boom. From track premieres, special edits saved just for the fields of Tomorrow, as well as multi-faceted mash-ups, the chart-topping, platinum artist Lost Frequencies seemed to capture the attention of those on-site like no other.
Hosting his own Lost Frequencies & Friends stage allowed the producer to perform amongst a cherry-picked bill of top-tier artists including Axwell, Fatboy Slim and Sigala, that also led to an official festival road-block as the arena became so packed, before his mainstage set that directly followed after David Guetta on the Sunday of the event in a prime-time slot, became one of the most talked-about solo sets of the year from the Belgian prodigy himself.
Now, presenting one of his only official live sets available online after his hugely well-received Less Is More Lotto Arena Show, Lost Frequencies presents a shimmering main stage live set that only further cements his status as a wonderkid for the next generation of music makers. Merging together bombastic bass, melodic flutters of self-proclaimed “indie dance” and stadium-worthy electro, Lost Frequencies dazzled during his third year at Tomorrowland, proving to only get better with age and maturing his sound, yet still retaining an injection of fun and feel-good vibes.
Pacha Ibiza – Blues Brothers – Flower Power – Flower Power, the most intergenerational party of the musical entertainment offer in Ibiza and that best represents the free and cosmopolitan spirit of the island, celebrates 50 years of the Pacha Group with the Original Blues Brothers Band. The legendary band from New York arrives in Ibiza for the first time and they do so with the party that could best receive them to offer a stellar performance on Monday, August 14th from 1:30 am.
In 1976 the actors John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd created The Blues Brothers for the popular American TV show Saturday Night Live. The sketch was so successful that a few years later they took those characters to the big screen. A crazy musical odyssey where the protagonists immersed in the roots soul, rock and blues next to myths like Aretha Franklin, James Brown, John Lee Hooker and Ray Charles. The Blues Brothers became a classic film and its soundtrack sold millions of copies.
The Original Blues Brothers Band continues to keep that spirit alive, bringing from its reunification in 1988 its show to audiences and festivals all over the world thanks to a group of top musicians amongst which stand out two of the original members of the band: the great Steve Cropper (composer for Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett) and Lou Marini. A mythical band that manages to congregate mass audiences of up to 60,000 people in great magical sessions.

Vagabundos is a party series spawned by Luciano, who felt in part a vagabond, as a world traveler from gig to gig. It features merry band of musicians led by Luciano and his world traveling musical friends presented in a combination of whimsical upbeat atmosphere with a funky pre-war hobo themed attire. Initially channeling 19th century vagrant attire, the Vagabundos style is an unusual celebration of a tough luck lifestyle. Now in it’s 7th year and even though venues have changed, the style essentially remains with key pieces of attire such as hats, multiple layers often incorporating vests, face paint and roses. Musically, the lineups are fully curated by Luciano often featuring his label Cadenza’s most prominent artists but often times rounding out the lineup with upcoming talents and other artists that Luciano respects., Vagabundos, like it’s road-weary musicians, has moved around extensively in recent years starting at Pacha with brief stints at Booom! And Space before returning to Pacha in the summer of 2016. Away from Ibiza, Vagabundos also has thrown exclusive takeovers most recently a few fully immersive takeovers of Fabrik Madrid.
