Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

ULTRA 2015! Armin van Buuren is back with Axwell and more...
Having hosted the largest electronic music festival in
African history in 2014, Ultra South Africa™ is returning for its 2015 edition
with even grander plans; kicking off with the announcement of a storming Phase
One line-up! With over 40,000 attendees passing through the hallowed Ultra
gates across the two-day event earlier this year, Ultra South Africa™ returns
to the striking landscapes of Ostrich Farm in Cape Town and the Nasrec Expo
Grounds in Johannesburg on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 February 2015
respectively, with every intention of making history again! Headlining the
First Phase are some of dance music’s most sought-after acts, with current DJ
Mag #1 Hardwell set to make his first appearance at the festival alongside
fellow debutants Armin van Buuren and Axwell^Ingrosso. Furthermore, firm
favourite Martin Garrix will be returning to the grounds where he so memorably
whipped the locals into a frenzy during his sets at the previous edition. The
eclectic and diverse sounds of the festival that were so strongly established
in its first outing will also remain prominent, with the headliners big-room
sound finely balanced with the inclusion of some of South Africa’s biggest and
best talent. This includes the Cape Town-based funk duo Goldfish, underground
tech-house star Black Coffee, as well as, an appearance from the legendary
house outfit Fresh & Euphonik. Other acts to round out the truly spectacular
Phase One include hometown mix specialist Roger Goode, budding house superstar
DJ Kent and renowned producer Protoculture.
