The plans are part of the global brand’s 20th anniversary celebrations.

The team behind Creamfields UK has revealed plans to reconstruct the main room from former Liverpool club Nation at this year’s festival.

The global dance music brand celebrates two anniversaries in 2017: 20 years of Creamfields and 25 years of Cream at Nation, the now-defunct club where it all began in 1992. The main room will be rebuilt using floor-plans and architectural photographs, and will feature original parts from the venue. The arena, titled Nation, will only be open on the Saturday of the four-day festival, which runs from August 24th through 27th in Daresbury. The lineup is still TBA.

Creamfields confirmed the rest of this year’s bill earlier in 2017. As ever, it’s heavy on globetrotting house, techno, trance and EDM acts, with slots for Jamie Jones, Marco Carola, Seth Troxler, Eric Prydz, Diplo, Sven Väth, The Martinez Brothers, Laidback Luke, Adam Beyer and Richie Hawtin, who will present his new live show, CLOSE, for the first time in the UK.

What to expect from Glastonbury’s spin off festival

Post Image

As the pinnacle of all UK festivals goes on its fallow year for 2018, Emily Eavis teases what’s to be expected from Variety Bazaar.

The Glastonbury organiser has likened the spin off to existing Glasto areas Shangri-La, Block9 and the GreenFields, admitting the new festival will be more like the party corner of its big brother.

Variety Bazaar will be run by the same team but will only be taking place every five years, starting in 2021. Glastonbury founder, Michael Eavis, has described the spin-off as ‘the last big gamble of his life’.

The team behind Glasto’s younger sibling have already been eyeing up potential locations and Eavis revealed how excited she is to be looking at new and different landscapes.

Glastonbury will return in 2019 and Eavis has teased a possible rejig on its return. With the future in mind, two acts for the 50th anniversary in 2020 have already been booked.


DJ Tennis and Marvin & Guy dig into ’90s Italian techno on new label, Life Of Marvin

The first release is a reissue of two tracks from Tuscany’s “pre-progressive” techno scene.

Italian artists DJ Tennis and Marvin & Guy have started a label called Life Of Marvin.

Tennis, AKA Manfredi Romano—who runs the Life And Death label—and Marvin & Guy went digging through Italian techno history for their new imprint. The aim of the vinyl-only label is to explore Italy’s “pre-progressive” techno scene, which preceded the “progressive techno” scene in Tuscany in the mid-’90s. The first release on Life Of Marvin features two tracks from Roby J and Sick Hardcore, both originally released on the Interactive Test label, which was founded by Franco and Riccardo Falsini. Future EPs on Life Of Marvin will come from Francesco Farfa, Gabry Fasano, Marco Calderoni and others.

Life Of Marvin is the latest move in a busy year for Romano, who was just tapped for a two-disc DJ-Kicks mix.

Listen to both tracks.

The xx cancel Night + Day festival in Iceland

The promoter pulled the three-day event in July after the venue, Skogafoss waterfall, was added to a list of endangered areas.

The xx have cancelled next month’s Night + Day festival in Iceland.

The three-day event was due to take place at Skogafoss waterfall from July 14th through 16th, with the London trio joined by the likes of Floating Points, Call Super and Avalon Emerson. However, in the time since it was announced, the waterfall has been added to the Environmental Agency Of Iceland’s list of endangered areas. In a statement posted to Facebook, The Warehouse Project, who were one of the promoter’s behind the event, said “the challenges on this site were insurmountable and it was not possible to secure another suitable venue in time.”

Refunds will be offered to anyone who bought a ticket. If you bought one via RA, the festival has issued the following instructions.

“Please allow five working days for your refund. For any further enquiries relating to flights, accommodation and transfers that have already been booked and will no longer be used, please contact: This email address will be monitored from 9 AM through 9 PM BST each day and we will deal with all enquiries as quickly as possible.”

SKYE ENERGY DRINK will never contact you & offer to you Car Wraps.

Car wraps and fake checks.
This year, one of the biggest scams around is the car wrap or car advertising scam.
And if you aren’t careful, it could cost you thousands of dollars…
Here’s how the scam operates:
In a nutshell, you were looking for a legitimate work from home job and you received an email asking you if you’d like to make some money by having your car wrapped in a well-known brand logo (e.g.,SKYE Energy Drink).
Once you respond, you are sent a check for several thousand dollars and asked to deposit it.
You are also asked to keep some money for yourself and wire the remaining cash to a graphic designer. This designer is then supposed to come and decorate your car.
The only problem with this plan is that the check is fake and bounces after a few days of sitting in your bank account.
However, the bank is legally required to make the funds available to you immediately. The scam artist will tell you to you then forward the cash via money order to a third party.
Now, you just sent away thousands of your own dollars to an overseas criminal. The check IS going to bounce and you will be held liable for the missing money.
Typically, you will lose between $3,000-$4,000 on average.
And that doesn’t even include any headaches from having to explain to the bank why your are depositing fake checks into your account.
The scammer walks away with a fat stack of your money and you are left footing the bill.
