Last summer marked the public upheaval of Electric Zoo Festival following two tragic deaths and multiple hospitalizations of attendees after overdosing on the drug MDMA; as a sign of respect to the departed and their families, the festival was cancelled on the third day.
This year, in an ongoing effort to combat the drug problem and increase fans safety, the festival organizers took a “positive stance” by releasing a mandatory viral Anti Drug PSA (required to be viewed by all attendees before entering) which aims to raise awareness, and make fans think twice about their indulgences on the forthcoming Labor Day weekend in New York.

On August 9th, New York City is set to receive one of the biggest Trance events in North America. The third stop of Aly & Fila‘s Future Sound of Egypt 350 tour is packed with a lineup intense enough to ensure all in attendance remember this landmark for the rest of their lives. Ten artists, nine hours, and one question on everyone’s mind; which act will steal the show?
Of the DJ’s poised to take the stage of Hammerstein Ballroom, Bryan Kearney is undoubtedly one of the crowd favorites. Delivering a style as energetic as it gets, Kearney has had a massive year with outstanding productions, support, and live sets including a outstanding performance at Electric Daisy Carnival: Las Vegas. On the more melodic side, the flag bearer of the Pure Trance movement--Solarstone– will be in attendance, ready to take listeners on a dreamy and hypnotic ride. In addition, Andy Moor and Lange, two producers who have truly carved out a niche in trance with their own eclectic, individualized sounds will be preforming back-to-back with a set bound to be brimming with vocals and full-bodied melodies.
Trance United is proud to announce that we will be in attendance for the only North American stop in the legendary FSOE tour. The dynamic duo of Aly & Fila has cultivated together a roster of Trance names that would make even a season veteran blush with excitement. Highlighted by not one but three separate B2B sets, Andy Moor Vs Lange, an FSOE 350 exclusive, Bryan Kearney Vs Arctic Moon, and now the crowd favorite Aly & Fila Vs John O’Callaghen.
That’s not to mention the rest of the lineup of this 9 hour maelstrom of music includes names like Solarstone, Orjan Nilsen, Max Graham, and Bjorn Akesson. Any of these names on a regular night would be headliners in their own right but they will come together under one roof to create a show that won’t soon be forgotten.
