Festival season is sadly cancelled, at least in the way we are used to see it happen, given that new drive-in festivals may come up, following the example of Bonn Live in Germany, where artists like Angerfist and Boris Brejcha are already booked for this summer. However, there is still plenty of time that you can use in a way to get in touch with Dance Music by getting to know how the backstage of this enormous industry works.
With that in mind, our team has made a selection of movies, TV-shows and online series so you can make your lockdown period a little less boring.
To start this list, we give you a completely fictional movie with Zac Efron playing the main role, check the trailer of We Are Your Friends down here:
If you are curious about how the Dance Music scene has evolved since its early days until now, than we recommend What We Started:
Perhaps one of the most interesting things for true fans of this sort of music is to know what the life of a DJ is like, from their studio where they make some of top hits to the hectic tours of theirs, so here is a short list of documentaries that you can watch:
– Avicii: True Stories
– Take One – A Documentary Film About Swedish House Mafia
– Leave the World Behind
– Steve Aoki – I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead
You can also watch watch a couple YouTube series like The Martin Garrix Show and On The Road to Redemption that respectively belong to Martin Garrix and Radical Redemption, where they share with us their artistic life among many other curiosities. Armin‘s Armin Van Buuren is Mr. Perfect also offers great insight into the mind of the trance genius, whilst Laidback Luke’s vlogs are ripe with industry tips, production knowledge and mixing tricks.
