Fedde Le Grand, Olvier Heldens and more for Croatia’s Ultra Beach

Ultra Europe
On July 14, the Dalmatian coast’s most legendary pool party will return to the idyllic Hotel Amfora Grand Beach Resort on the picturesque island of Hvar for its third consecutive annual edition, and it’s looking bigger and better than ever!
First up, and one of three headliners to be announced, is Dutch legend Fedde Le Grand. A true Ultra mainstay, Fedde has been on a tear as of late, having recently rocked six sold out ‘GRAND’ shows on the trot in his hometown of Amsterdam. Following the Dutch trend, future house maestro Oliver Heldens will be making his Ultra Europe debut, armed with global hits such as Gecko and Koala. Completing the Ultra Beach headliner lineup is progressive duo Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, who having played the Ultra Europe Main Stage back in 2013, will be looking to impress the beautiful revelers in an altogether different setting. Supporting the headline talent will be German DJ/Producer duo Jewels & Sparks and fellow countrymanMoguai.
Having welcomed over 150,000 attendees from over 125 countries in July 2014, the 2015 edition of Ultra Europe is set to break even more records as it expands into a historic event spanning a mammoth seven days. In addition to the three days of festivities held inside the Poljud Stadium and the one day Ultra Beach party on the island of Hvar, Ultra Europe will also be hosting three extra parties across the period, including an Opening Party in Split on July 9, a one-off Regatta on July 13 and the official Closing Party on the island of Vis on July 15.  

SW4 lineup gains pace as Markus Schulz, Arty and more join the lineup

The four newest acts added to this years SW4 Saturday lineup are trance legend Markus Schulz, house producer Fedde Le Grande, Arty and Super 8 & Tab.

South West Four 2014 will welcome the return of Markus Schulz. As a long time favourite at the Capital’s longest running club night, Markus has become renowned for delivering spectacular sets for The Gallery at Ministry of Sound, in addition to headline appearances at the most prestigious clubs and festivals the world has to offer. Through his outstanding audience interaction, flawless harmonic mixing and intuitive tune selection, Markus has gone on to stun crowds in every corner of the globe. With his brand new album ‘Scream 2’ already storming the charts after its recent release, we simply cannot wait for the Coldharbour Recordings boss to showcase his dominant yet euphoric fusion of house and trance on Clapham Common.

Widely recognised by fans and artists alike as one of the single most defining figures of contemporary house music, Fedde Le Grand returns to SW4 for the first time in six years. Since then, the Flamingo Recordings boss has evolved into one of dance music’s greatest assets, with a CV full of creative beats, contagious grooves and artistic rhythms that are consistently jetted around the world. A regular at the most prominent of festivals, Fedde Le Grand’s production ability has resulted in remixes for the likes of Madonna to Coldplay and Robbie Williams. A true favourite at SW4 HQ, we are incredibly proud to welcome the return of Fedde Le Grand.

After mesmerizing Alexandra Palace with a jaw-dropping performance at Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy event last October, Arty has inevitably remained fresh in our minds. Ever since that landmark night, we have fought off fierce competition to secure the sensational Russian for his inevitable SW4 debut. Still in his early 20’s, Arty has already lit up the electronic world with a collection of powerful releases on Anjunabeats, Axtone and Big Beat. With his beautifully melodic remix of London Grammar’s ‘Hey Now’ heavily supported by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong, Arty is set for world domination in 2014.

Through their innovative approach and intricate production values, Super8 & Tab have stealthily forced their way to the forefront of the trance scene by championing the sound in its purest form. Described by many as one of the weekend’s most memorable highlights, their performance last year earned the pair a welcome return in 2014. Mixing deep brooding vocals with futuristic elements of euphoria, 2013 witnessed the Scandinavian duo deliver their heavenly sound at Tomorrowland, Ultra, Amnesia and The Gallery, in addition to three leading releases on Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats.
