When we heard about a four day adventure on the high seas with 96 hours of music provided by around 70 DJ/Producers to a sold out crowd of around 2700 participants, we were both intimidated and excited at the idea of partaking in this escapade.
We had the pleasure of chatting with the founder Jason Beukema before we set sail. It was exciting to hear some of the insights behind his vision and passion for this adventure. Groove Cruise began with 125 friends ten years ago, and now there are around 4,700 people taking part on both coasts. It's now grown to a bi-coastal event with an incredibly high return rate of past party-goers.

Ten miles of darkness and 2000 cars separated us from the festival we had only dreamt about. As we stared forward, excited and anxious, there was a faint flicker towards the sky and then the familiar explosion of fireworks in the distance. A roar ripped through the desert from the cars around us. Indian chiefs and their topless girlfriends yelled and cheered out their windows, as packs of neon spattered fur boots ran by on foot. This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events
With the insanity of Ultra Fest raging and rollicking throughout the collectively rabid masses, the chaos shall inevitably continue (and expand) with the onset of the weekend! Miami—fully in the throes of musical ecstasy and riotous carnal whims—is gearing up for a weekend of party infamy. It is the inevitable culmination of 10 days of music, debauchery, and the youthful American spirit—a deluge of fiesta!
More than you average, run of the mill weekend; ULTRA weekend is comprised of 21 bashes—featuring the sickest tunes at the most bangin’ spots—in what is truly the most grandiose swan song in Festival history!
He may be only one third of global DJ sensation Swedish House Mafia, but alone or not, Steve Angello will bring a massive sound. On Saturday August 20th, RPM and Pacha NYC present Size Matters with Steve Angello at Governors Island.
The Swedish and Greek DJ / Producer has been creating electro and tech house beats for years, with his first big remix of dance classic "Sweet Dreams" Eurythmics in 2004 that still can be heard throughout in various DJ sets today. After linking up with disc jockeys Axwell and Sebestian Ingrosso, the trio became an unstoppable force known as Swedish House Mafia. "Leave the World Behind" featuring vocals by dance diva Deborah Cox was Swedish House Mafia's first production together in 2009, which grabbed the undivided attention of dance fans. It seems that with every new release, devoted fans keep multiplying for the Mafia.
