The first act at the main stage was Demetrius who laid down his usual dutch house sounds. The young star was soon joined on stage by surprise superstar producer, guest, and father, Timbaland. Although we enjoyed the surprise visit, MC shout outs don’t mesh well with the natural flow of electronic music and by the end of his blabber we were ready for more tunes.

After a long day at the festival on Friday, and a few stints downtown to catch the after-parties, I found my self surprisingly upbeat, energetic, and overall ready for what Saturday would bring.
Anyone who grew up in the 80s remembers the lunchbox with matching thermos, the red leather jacket, and of course, moonwalking everywhere you go. In the years to follow, Michael Jackson would become an international superstar despite the controversies that would conjure up images of a strange mix of characters that became associated with "The King of Pop." With 2012 marking the 25th anniversary of the 5th best selling album of all time, the Sept. 18th release of '"BAD 25" hopes to take us back in time and shift our focus back to what was really important; the music.
In addition to a re-mastered version of the original album, the two-disc set will contain demos from early recording sessions, remixes by NERO and Afrojack along with previously unreleased demos of songs that were not included on the final version. A deluxe version of the release will include a highly anticipated DVD of MJs 1988 performance at Wembly Stadium (oftened cited as being one of the best performances of his career), as well as a third disc containing audio from the same show. Furthermore, a special edition box set will include the above, 2 booklets of never before seen photos and a two-sided poster. As if all this wasn't enough, a stand alone 12" vinyl LP picture disc is also available.
A Spike Lee documentary of the same name, recently debuted at the Venice International Film Festival, takes an in depth look at the behind the scenes process of making the multi-platinum classic. "This is a time to just concentrate on the music- the genius of Michael Jackson, a chance to dig into his creative process," said Spike Lee in a press statement. "We all are blessed with the final work, but it's rare that you see how something was put together. We just see the final product but we dont see the blood, sweat, and tears, all the work that goes into how the masters work".
Uncovering the history behind Smooth Criminal's gravity defying lean, and 'Shamon' the full documentary will remind us who's bad on November 22 on ABC.
It seems that music fans' worst nightmare prayers have been answered! Socialite and famous for doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING personality, Paris Hilton, is determined to make an impact on today's music scene.
She announced earlier this year she's been hard at work on a new album, which we are all sure will be a masterpiece, just like the rest of her previous work. Paris is going for an electro/pop sound and who better to catapult her singing career than world famous DJ and rumored (ex) boyfriend, Afrojack, who is currently producing tracks for her new album. Not only does she plan to bless music fans with her vocals, she's also preparing to become a disc jockey and has been cast to play the lead female in K-Pop singer Kim Jang Hoon's next music video.
And such an extraordinary festival deserves an extraordinary theme song. Last year, Belgian brothers Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike produced Tomorrowland’s anthem “The Way We See The World,” with the help of Afrojack and Nervo. This year, the brothers are back to create a track that rivals Tomorrowland’s whimsical aura - yielding “Tomorrow Changed Today” as the culmination of their musical efforts. This progressive house ear-candy ebbs and flows into punchy chords and uplifting synths.
