The first official Electronic Dance Music Festival was held in Gothenburg, Sweden in the year 2002. This event featured some of the biggest names in electronic music such as Armin van Buenselberg, Carl Cox, Matt Bell, Martin Garrix, Avicenna and many others. As most of you know, electronic music and dance music are two totally different styles that have evolved over time. While traditional dance music is becoming more danceable thanks to artists such as Rihanna, it still has a certain “dance club” mentality.
Electronic dance is a style where musical beats are played through speakers instead of beat tracks. This style is still considered “indie.” But what distinguishes it from “indie” is that, unlike classical, most artists involved in this type of music are relatively unknown. While this keeps the general audience from being familiar with a performer, it also keeps the price down for an artist to come out with his or her own music and/or show at a mainstream festival. You can still find a good number of underground artists performing at festivals throughout the year.
One way that we can distinguish between these two different styles is by defining what elements make up both styles. As stated above, electronic dance music is a style where sounds are played through speakers, but there are also elements of Dub techno and breakcore. In Dub techno, for instance, dance music is played with a set of drum machines, samplers and other hardware. On the other hand, breakcore is about intense sound production – it’s all about vocals and distorted guitar.
If we look at the history of electronic music and compare it to music of another nature, such as classical, then we’d find that much of what makes up Dub techno is taken from classical music, while certain elements are taken from modern music, specifically hip hop. For instance, sampling is a fundamental part of hip hop. Similarly, sampling is still a fundamental element of electronic dance music. Electronic music has always been about sampling and re-sampling, with the production process evolving over time.
At the same time, Dub techno is a very loose musical style, because it’s more about playing with sample tracks and looping them rather than creating something new. On the other hand, breakcore is very structured, and there’s a clear beginning, middle and end to the track. The production can be very intense, as the main goal is to create a mood and build anticipation. This may come from a traditional, clubbing atmosphere, but it could also come from something as simple as pumping the bass line from a dubstep track.
At the same time, if you’re looking to attend a Dub techno festival, then it’ll be important to get tickets. It can be tough to get tickets in the UK, especially for bigger festivals like the Reading Festival, due to ticket prices going up every year. It will be easier to get tickets for an East Coast event, because you’ll have a few options. For example, if you live in the USA or Canada, then you’ll need to get either a Canadian visa or the entry permit to enter the country. However, if you live anywhere else in the world, then you’ll probably need to get either a British passport or a visa, and then you’ll need to apply for a visa so that you can stay in the UK to perform.
Of course, while many DJs these days are setting up accounts on the Internet, you should still check out the local directories to see if there’s an event taking place in your local area. In some cases, an event planner will be able to offer you advice on where the best places are to play electronic dance music at. The same goes for a promoter if you live in the U.S.A or Europe. You may also find promoters to be able to give you good information on what dance events are happening in your local area. Keep in mind that the Internet is a great resource, but if you want to be able to rely on accurate information, then you should go down to your local directories first.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that you can’t get involved with the local electronic dance music scene either! In fact, many DJs and music producers are just dying to meet up with their local fans, whether they are fans of the genre in general or not. This is a chance to show your local fans what you’ve been up to. And if you happen to make new friends along the way, then that’s even better!
