AQUA take over main stage at Imagine

Imagine – the electronic music festival staged in Atlanta, Georgia, USA – takes place 26-28 August 2016.

This year AQUA will be bringing their unique water hologram show to the main stage to accompany headliners including Benny Benassi, NERO, Showtek and Steve Angello.

AQUA create international events which help concert goers give back to developing countries. Each ticket purchased for one of the concerts results in one month of clean water for someone in the developing world.

As well as proceeds from tickets sales AQUA will be collecting loose change at the event to go towards buying Life Straws for children in Ghana.

You can buy tickets for the Imagine Music Festival here.

TheEDMblog

I have realised I need to clarify some issues about this website.

TheEDMblog is an independent blog written by me (Dan Slipper). I am not paid and no one pays to have any content featured.

I am lucky enough to be sent promos by various record labels and I consider this to be a huge privilege. If I promote a track on the blog it is because I think other people will enjoy listening to it – a notion which informs all the content featured.

If I am sent a ‘freebie’, given tickets or put on a guest list I will make this clear in any blog post so readers are aware of the context.

This blog is and always will be a celebration of music, artists and events of interest to dance music fans.

Thanks for reading.

Attend a concert, dance, do good

Concert organiser AQUA are celebrating the milestone of teaming up with charity WaterIsLife and donating up to 10 years of clean water to a school in Ghana.

Based on the idea that concert attendees can help make a difference, each ticket purchased for one of AQUA’s events contributes towards providing one month of clean water for someone in a developing country.

In the past they have worked with artists including 3LAU, Audien, Borgeous and Hardwell to create shows which use lights, lasers and projections to make water “dance to the beat of the music.”

Take a look at what they do:

Completely awesome idea!

I hear they have an exciting announcement coming up so definitely watch this space.
