We have waited weeks for an official announcement from Insomniac events on when and where the the legendary EDM festival (Electric Daisy Carnival) will be Held. Today the official announcement was posted on Insomniacs website. The event will be May 24th – 26th (Memorial Day Weekend) at the Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, IL. The event will be 18+ to enter and 21+ to consume alcohol. The event spread out over 5 stages will have a capacity of over 300,000 people. 3 day general admission and VIP tickets will go on sale for EDC Chicago 2013 on Wednesday January 23rd at 12pm. As an added bonus it was also announced that for the first time at a EDC event tickets will be sold for camping. Chicago land speedway is located at 500 speedway Blvd. Joliet, IL. Stay tuned to Fusion Radio for all you updates on this massive event.
Alright Fusion listeners…. there has been a lot of speculations on where Electric Daisy Carnival will be held in Chicago. Since not all of our listeners are from the Chicago-land area, I wanted to shed some light on the possibilities.
EDC Chicago Tweeted on December 13th that the possibility for the the 2013 event could be Soldier Field (On the Chicago Lake Front), Chicago Land Speedway (50 miles outside the City of Chicago), or Toyota Park (25 Miles outside the City of Chicago). The EDC Chicago twitter feed did say it confirmed the 300,000+ person venue. So lets break down which one of these venues could hold that many people.
*Soldier Field’s Capacity is 61,500 people in the stands, its possible for another 5,000 or so to fit on the field.
*Chicago Land Speedway’s Capacity is $75,000 and sits on 930 acres of land which can hold more than 50,000 cars in its parking lots.
*Toyota Park’s Capacity is 28,000 for concerts, and only has a 6,000 car capacity in its 3 parking lots!
If I had to bet on which venue was going to be hosting the 300,000+ person crowd I would say it has to be Chicago Land Speedway! 75,000 people in the stands, room for 50,000 cars, and don’t forget all of the space on the track level. I guess we will have to wait till January 16th for the final answer to where EDC Chicago will be held.
Check out the Promo video from 2012!
Rolling Stones rolled out a photo blog of Kaskade’s latest world tour.
Starting in Houston, Texas in July and ending up 83 slides later.
You get to see most of the behind the scenes work that goes on building his massive shows.
If you were at one of his shows this year there is a good chance you are in one of these photos. Kaskade got up close and personal with his fans, which ranges from seeing his party side or chill moments.
Definitely worth a look. It shows that there is so much more to DJing then pressing buttons and spinning records. It shows that you have to have the strength to keep it going week by week.
To view the entire slideshow, go to the Rolling Stone page here.
Perry’s stage was the place to be for dance acts over Lollapalooza weekend. Named after the creator of Lollapalooza and Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell the stage exploded with DJs and visuals.
While some danced to the beat of their own drum, the energy alone was enough to keep fans moving. Stuffed animals taped on a stick being waved in the air was very popular this year. Maybe it was attention. Some carried balloons or dressed in masks while they gyrated.
The music ran the gamut from newer DJs like Porter Robinson to Calvin Harris. Bassnectar pretty much described his own name with so much bass that my ears almost exploded in front of his speaker! Fans were loving it though and jumped up against the barricade.
Santigold strangely played in this area on Saturday night. While she has moments of dance, she is more of a pop singer while Avicii played at the bigger Bud Light stage instead of Perry’s. The huge face that he spun on top of made for striking visuals with lips mouthing out songs as well as an earth photo projected onto it.
Kid Color started early on Sunday but started with a nice sized crowd while the mud dried in the hot sun. He was really nice when I ran into him on the street. He might be one to watch on the turntables.
Little Dragon had a lot of followers in the afternoon as well as Zeds Dead, who had a dreadlocked frontman running around the front of the stage.
Many people may not realize that for dance acts Lollapalooza can now compete with larger festivals and has garnered a loyal fan base that will continue for years to come. For next years festival stay tuned to www.lollapalooza.com
Rebecca Scheja and Fiona Fitzpatrick are from Stockholm and are vocalists as well as producers. Coming out of the European club scene, the heavy beat oriented duo has a new single out entitled “Dance.” Their new album I Love You, Man contains many unforgettable tracks such as “Bullets” and “Jane Doe.” Look for collaborations with Spank Rock and Kaskade on this disc from Ultra Music.
Fusion Radio visited the two before their DJ set at Studio Paris in Chicago.
JN: (Jerry Nunn) Hi, ladies. When did you first meet?
FF: (Fiona Fitzpatrick) We met quite recently in 2008. We immediately fell in love and very happy with each other. I knew that if we could work together and find something to do together we would be really happy.
We found that the DJ bookings that we did weren’t doing well so we started DJing ourselves. We then developed as DJs and learned by doing. After a year we started producing as well. We have working and touring for four years.
RS: (Rebecca Scheja) And singing on top of it.
JN: Did you study music when you were younger?
FF: Not electronic music but other types of music, more classical and pop.
RS: I went to singing and music school my whole life. I never worked with computers with Logic or music programs but I just sang. I was in bands and did songwriting.
FF: My father took the synthesizer to Sweden so when I twelve I got my first one but I hated it because he was forcing me to produce. So then I joined a punk band instead to rebel against my father. It wasn’t until we started working together that I started accepting it. Now I can take his help!
JN: If you weren’t in the music business what would you be doing?
RS: I would work with movies or filmmaking. Fiona would probably be in politics.
JN: Did you grow up in Sweden?
FF: Yes we are from Stockholm, the capitol.
JN: Is this your first time in Chicago?
FF: No, it is our second but we didn’t see anything last time so we could say it is our first. We only went to a club last time and our hotel.
JN: So it was really fast.
FF: Now we saw Bucktown. We like vintage clothes and vegetarian food.
JN: We need to get to Boystown and the gay bars.
RS: That is what we heard about. We missed it!
FF: No one told us until now. That is where we will be staying next time.
JN: How do you stay in contact with people?
FF: Twitter and Instagram. I call my boyfriend on Skype because the phone bills from Sweden to America are huge. I think Rebecca had a phone bill for $1,000.
RS: Pretty much every month now. I don’t care because we travel so much. When I am drunk I am just calling people!
JN: What do you think of Swedish artists like Robyn?
FF: She’s a very good friend and we are very proud of her. She has taught us a lot.
RS: She is a big inspiration even though she is not our genre. She is a great live performer and songwriter.
FF: She has been like a big sister guiding us and helping us.
RS: We are not doing the exact same thing even though we are making music.
FF: She is touring and we are touring so we met in the airplane last time from Stockholm from Chicago. She is coming to our release party tomorrow, which we are happy about.
JN: Where are you going tomorrow?
JN: That will be fun. Why did you decide to go by just the first names?
FF: We didn’t decide. I think that is just what happened similar to the Swedish House Mafia. They were just hanging out and called that. That is really what happened to us. We tried to come up with other fun names but people kept calling us Rebecca & Fiona. It came to a point where it was too late to change.
JN: Well it worked for Robyn!
RS: She changed her name to Robyn with a Y because she had a song called “Show Me Love” at the same time that Robin S. had the same track called “Show Me Love.” She just told us the other week that she had to do it.
JN: I never put that together! Have you ever listened to the music group The Sounds?
FF: They are bigger in America than they are in Sweden. It is very cool to find people like that here.
JN: How is it working with Ultra Music?
FF: We just signed three months ago.
RS: Maybe even two months ago…
FF: We have been in contact with them for a very long time. Ever since we started making music. They have been like close family somehow because they have been with us all the time even though we were not signed with them. Signing has been very natural.
RS: Patrick the boss has been supportive from the first track that we made. He calls and checks up on us.
FF: He came to Sweden.
RS: Also, he doesn’t want to change anything but is very supportive. He has been a great guy throughout the whole process.
FF: We feel really at home with Ultra.
JN: It is a perfect match.
FF: We are very independent. Our taste is our taste and no one is going to change it. We want to do everything by ourselves.
JN: With the new album I Love You, Man there are guest stars such as Kaskade.
RS: In the United States version yes Kaskade is on it.
FF: The only artist we are featuring is the rapper Spank Rock, an American rapper. He is on one of our darkest tracks “Church Is On Fire.” It is probably the most difficult track to attempt on the album. It is based on an old punk rock song in Sweden that we sampled.
JN: Who comes up with the concept of these videos?
FF: We don’t have a lot time to plan things. The “Bullets” video was planed in three days. We have a stylist and art director. He’s a really cool gay guy that dresses really crazy and he helps us with clothing and ideas. His name is Tommie X.
RS: He blogs and is a DJ. He’s super cool.
JN: He should come to Chicago, too.
FF: He wants to.
JN: The “Dance” video is very dark.
FF: That is actually not him. That’s our friend Laerke Herthoni, a Danish girl that just started producing music videos. She did “Dance” and “Bullets.” They were both made in Denmark and have a Scandinavian touch. They are depressing and dark but fun.
RS: She put her story together and we let her put it together all by herself otherwise we would have been in control of everything. We don’t usually let people decide for us but she is so talented. She is a really good movie director and we wanted her to be the next big thing.
FF: And she will be.
RS: We think it turned out cool. It is not us, the way we dress, makeup or hair but it is her and her story. That means a lot to us and puts feeling into the song as well.
JN: It is very stylish.
RS: Yeah, it is a short movie kind of.
FF: And the guys are really hot!
JN: They are. I need to look at it again!
FF: He is the new face of Versace. He is young, 19 year old Danish guy and another one is like Prada.
JN: When people watch the video they will get a certain image of you. You don’t seem like that at all in person.
FF: No that is not us at all.
JN: What do you want people to know about you instead?
FF: We are crazy party girls and then also serious, stupid nerds half the time. It is hard to put a finger on us I think!
RS: We are just humans. It is us having fun and making music.
JN: Do you ever get sick of being around each other?
FF: Yes, you can get sick of anyone but compared to anyone else, no. We actually very content.
RS: We are connected so well that we don’t even have to talk. We understand each other. When we are really tired or stressed we get mad for one minute then it is over. It is nothing deep or something we have to handle afterwards. It is easy because we know how we feel. We are always tired, stressed or drunk but it is always fun!
JN: What is this special drink we are drinking?
FF: An Averna sour.
RS: Fucking amazing.
JN: So the album is officially out now.
FF: It’s out. Cheers, man!

For those who are into the dance-heavy and the somewhat new genre, dubstep, the Electric Daisy Carnival now in Las Vegas, remains a marquee music festival for the Southwest part of the United States.
Names like will.i.am and David Guetta will be performing, but the must-see acts this weekend are: Chicago’s own Kaskade, Sweden’s best Avici, new to the scene Porter Robinson and Rusko.
For casual fans, combing through the relentless four-on-the-floor kick-thumping bass and the endless micro-genres of dance, techno and dubstep can be as unique as figuring out how to secure fairy wings to a bikini top (maybe you know someone who’s tried or even yourself?). But for those who LOVE dance and techno, this is a can’t-miss event.
For the first time in 23 years, Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan are set to perform their 1988 hit Especially For You at the Hit Factory Live concert in London next month. Stay tuned for more information as it comes out.
This weekend’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas is planned to be one of the most anticipated music festivals of the year with ever-popular performances from staple dance artists: Kaskade and Avicii.
This weekend is Milwaukee Pride. Headlining acts for the weekend are: Belinda Carlisle on Friday, Taylor Dayne on Saturday and Berlin – featuring Terri Nunn on Sunday. Need we say more?
Kelly Clarkson is rocking a hot new toned body with new locks to go along with her new single Dark Side. For the first time, hunk boyfriend, Brandon Blackstock, made his official public debut last week a celeb party.
This weeks Top Song On Fusion Radio is Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso Ft. Ryan Tedder “Calling (Losing My Mind)” (Radio Edit).
Sebastian Ingrosso is that rare thing in the world of dance music: a musician who understands the world of melodies just as much as he understands the power of the kick drum.
Sebastian’s father owned two record labels, and from the tender age of 14 Ingrosso could be found in the studio producing music. His Music Influences include Steve Angello, Axwell, Eric Prydz, Lady Gaga and the Gorillaz to name a few. This could be where his unique understanding of music comes from along with his years of studio experience.
From the first time we heard this weeks #1 song we knew it was a hit! Keep up that great work Sebastian Ingrosso!
