The Bluesfest lineup is now available online


The EDM lineup includes Skrillex along with the Full Flex Express on July 14th (Was only expecting Skrillex), Tommy Trash, Adventure Club, Zeds Dead, Baauer, and A Tribe Called Red.

One observation: I wish Skrillex's name was higher on the marquee list considering he was the biggest draw for Bluesfest 2012. 

Tickets will go on sale tomorrow at 10:00 am.

Tonight there will be 3 events that will be sure to cater to any EDM fan

Tonight will be a huge night in Ottawa as there will be 3 separate events that should please almost any EDM fan:

Tommy Trash at Mansion Nightclub (Only $30 tickets remain):

Tommy Trash currently holds the number #1 spot on the Beatport 100 for 'Reload' made with Sebastian Ingrosso, need I say more? If you want to read a recent review on one of his performances in Texas, check out what YourEDM said. He loved every minute.

Project Offset at Bijou Nightclub, $12 at the door:

Project Offset have been a resident of Montreal's Circus Afterhours for some time now and have developed a style that I would consider similar to the stable of artists from Markus Schulz' Coldharbour Record label. To hear what I'm talking about check out their latest Crowd Control Podcast:

Seven Lions is the latest artist to be signed to Skrillex' OWSLA label and is poised to become one of the next big DJs/Producers in the industry. He still holds the number 1 position on the Beatport Dubstep charts and with his upcoming Seven Lions EP + Skrillex consistent Twitter love - he has the potential to rise even higher. To read more about this rising star, check out my write up about Seven Lions I had written last week.

Tonight is a big big night in Ottawa with some heavy hitters in the locale ready to give us all some memorable shows.

More events announced for the Mansion Nightclub

The Mansion Nightclub and the Bydek Group are trying to make a serious mark on the city with their new LOUD Friday series with Adam K kicking off the weekly event on August 31st. The next official announcement for the LOUD series is Joe Ghost who was just announced to play on September 7th by the Mansion twitter account.

Other rumoured acts coming up for Mansion is Chris Lake on October 5th and Tommy Trash on October 12th. These are big league names and I couldn't be happier to see Ottawa become a major destination for these DJ acts.
