Spring break is the highlight of every college student’s spring semester - a week when students slam their books shut and welcome in sandy beaches, all-night parties, and enough tropical drinks to make any engineering student forget the simplest of math equations. This year, house music fans are in luck because College Travel Experts and Prime Social Group have teamed up to host Electro Beach, a 42 night spring break music experience that promises to give students a spring break like no other.
Beginning Feb. 25, college students will invade beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to take the definition of spring break raging to a whole new level. The six-week festival boasts a line-up of some of the biggest DJs in the scene such as Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Avicii, Steve Aoki, Laidback Luke, and a myriad of other superstars.

And with the help of PSG, commonly considered one of the most-respected concert promotions agencies in the college realm, Electro Beach is sure to give attendees a week they’ll never forget (or never remember, depending on alcohol consumption which is covered in the all-inclusive package).
You didn’t think electronic music was going anywhere, did you?
Sounds of dub step and electro beats can be heard playing in the background of everywhere from shopping malls to restaurants these days; and that’s not even including your weekly house music hot spot. Festivals such as Coachella, Bonaroo, Electric Zoo, and Ultra have been getting rave reviews from electronic music enthusiasts, gathering tens of thousands of people every year. Although an amazing experience, these festivals tend to last for days, draining both mind and wallet. Taking that into consideration, the people over at Skullcandy are treating EDM fans to a one day festival to keep the music flowing beyond their stylish headphone gear.
