SHINE FEST 25-27. Julijs @ Liepaja

Shine Fest 2014” ir vadošais elektroniskās mūzikas festivāls Latvijā, kas notiek jau piekto gadu pēc kārtas Liepājā. Festivāls ir kļuvis par Latvijas elektroniskās mūzikas cienītāju un Liepājas pilsētas kultūras programmas neatņemamu sastāvdaļu – no dīdžeju setiem pludmales kafejnīcā “Shine Cafe” tas dažu gadu laikā ir izaudzis līdz Latvijā nozīmīgākajam elektroniskās mūzikas kopienas pasākumam. Festivāls „Shine Fest” ietver sevī plašu mūzikas stilu daudzveidību – techno, house, drum’n’bass, dubstep, funk, reggae u.c. apvienojumā ar pozitīvu atmosfēru un neaizmirstamiem mirkļiem pašā Baltijas jūras krastā. 

Savu piecu gadu jubileju festivāls šogad svinēs 25. un 26. jūlijā, Liepājas pludmalē ar devīzi – draugu lokā. Jubilejas gadā festivāla organizatori kā galveno uzdevumu ir izvirzījuši nevis pārsteigt apmeklētājus ar lielajām pasaules zvaigznēm, bet radīt kvalitatīvu pasākumu ar daudz intīmāku atmosfēru kā ierasts lielajos festivālos. „Shine Fest” ir mūzikas notikums tiem, kurus vada mīlestība pret elektronisko deju mūziku un vēlme izbaudīt to daudz mājīgākā atmosfērā, izvairoties no mega festivālu apmeklētāju pūļiem.

Šogad starptautiskais brīvdabas elektroniskās mūzikas festivāls norisināsies uz trim skatuvēm – lielās METAXA DANCE ARENA, skaļajā LIVE teltī un eksperimentālājā UNDERGROUND teltī. Tā apmeklētāji varēs baudīt 34 stundu NON STOP programmu, kas piedāvās dažādu stilu mūziku pat visprasīgākajām elektroniskās mūzikas gaumēm – tech house, techno, progressive house, break beat, drum’n’bass, dubstep, funk, jazz, līdz pat saulainiem reggae ritmiem un dzīvās mūzikas priekšnesumiem. Festivālā piedalīsies labākās pašmāju dīdžeju apvienības, savai komandai pieaicinot kolēģus no ārvalstīm – Bogdan Taran ar Amber Muse, neatkārtojamā Ksenija Kamikaza ar apvienību Platz fur Tanz, Urban Soulz , kā arī vīdžeji, MC un dzīvās mūzikas izpildītāji no vairākām valstīm.

Mūzika ir nozīmīgākā, taču ne vienīgā „Shine Fest” programmas sastāvdaļa – pasākuma organizatori būs parūpējušies, lai festivāla dalībnieki festivāla teritorijā saņem visu nepieciešamo – iespēju ieturēt maltīti, baudīt kokteiļus, sauļoties, nodoties sportiskām un radošām aktivitātēm. Dienas laikā festivāla apmeklētāji varēs piedalīties gan pludmales volejbola, gan pludmales mini futbola turnīros, apmeklēt dažādas radošās nodarbības, piedalīties atrakcijās. Šogad īpašā atmosfērā tiks pavadīta saulrieta stunda, organizējot to kā skaistu un atmiņā paliekošu piedzīvojumu.

Festivāls norit 34 stundas NON STOP un divu dienu biļete, kas maksā tikai 15 EUR, sniegs iespēju izbaudīt šo piedzīvojumu pilnā apmērā. „Shine Fest” nodrošina arī telšu pilsētiņu blakus festivāla teritorijai. Divu dienu biļete ar telts vietu maksā 20 EUR. Biļetes var iegādāties Biļešu Serviss kasēs.

POLICE UNCOVER MASSIVE ILLEGAL PRESSING PLANT IN GERMANY

German police have discovered what they reckon to be one of the largest illegal pressing plants in Europe.

Several properties were raided in both Bavaria and Hessen after preliminary investigations led by anti-piracy organisation proMedia at the instigation of the German record industry trade group BVMI, with support from global trade body IFPI.

BVMI CEO Dr Florian Drücke said: “Thanks to the excellent preparatory work and above all the precise work of the prosecutor and police, this raid has enabled us to pull the plug on the largest-ever undercover pressing plant for music in Europe. The equipment found here demonstrates once again that this is not the work of petty criminals, but of professional organisations whose criminal activities inflict massive damage on artists and the recording industry”.

10 Mixing Mistakes Everyone Makes – And How to Avoid Them

Over the last 20 years, Point Blank has seen it all.

Government Cuts Unemployment In Half By Considering “Bedroom DJ” An Actual Job

djGovernments across the world have slapped each other on the proverbial back today after they managed to successfully halve global unemployment statistics by considering bedroom DJs full time workers.

Under previous legislations bedroom DJs were considered by the government to be “unemployed pipe dreamers who should get real jobs” but in the wake of successive years of chronic unemployment the government has reversed its stance to consider it real work. Continue reading

Dj's
