Hardwell & VINAI feat. Cam Meekins – Out Of This Town
Since Hardwell’s indefinite hiatus announcement last month, it was expected that there wouldn’t be any news from him for a while. The latter is that he has proven us wrong and we are grateful for that. Just two weeks ago, the Norwegian superstar lit up ears with his song ‘Light it Up’. Now he has teamed up with VINAI to release their long-awaited song called ‘Out Of This Town’ featuring Cam Meekins.
The opening of the song shows how hip-hop and EDM elements can hype up a song. Cam’s catchy rap verses paired with energetic synths make this a perfect weekend hype song. Once the vibes are set, things get heated building up into the drop. The drop is of classic Hardwell fashion which will make anyone dance it off at the club.
With two songs already released since his leave of absence, Hardwell makes a strong statement that he is here to stay and will have time to keep producing hits for us. Thank you, Hardwell and we can’t wait for your return to the decks.

Jeff Abel, aka Excision, finally spoke out yesterday in the Facebook group Excision’s Headbangers.
Among rumors swirling all weekend of up to 9 alleged deaths, 2 have been confirmed at Lost Lands Music Festival in Ohio. The official statement from Lost Lands reads:View the original article to see embedded media.
Jeff Abel, aka Excision, finally spoke out yesterday in the Facebook group Excision’s Headbangers.
Randy Thorp, Licking County Sheriff, reported that medics responded to a call of an unresponsive male Saturday morning.
The man, identified as 24-year-old Ger Vang of Hickory, North Carolina, was taken to Licking Memorial Hospital. He was pronounced dead at 3:20 a.m. Saturday. Less than 24 hours later, another man, identified as 32-year-old Mario Symborski of Pontiac, Michigan, was also taken to Licking Memorial Hospital. He was pronounced dead at 12:05 a.m. Sunday.
While rumors of other deaths have been reported on the internet, none were confirmed at other coroner’s offices.
Adam Auctor of Bunk Police said tests of at least three different batches of cocaine at Lost Lands were positive for fentanyl, according to Rooster.com.
“People were dropping like flies all weekend,” Auctor said. “I watched a girl get strapped down to a gurney saying she was going to die.” He saw a guy holding a girl screaming for help. “And that was in all of 3-4 hours,” Auctor said.
Narcan kits were also confiscated, and posts on Reddit stated that Bunk Police was kicked out due to not being approved vendors.
Multiple arrests were made for drug trafficking as well, with police believing at least one batch to be fentanyl mixed with cocaine according to the Zanesville Time Recorder. Their article details that at least 6 individuals were arrested for drug possession and/or drug trafficking, with the main illegal narcotics found including ketamine, ecstasy, and cocaine.
Licking Township Trustees held a meeting at the township fire station Monday evening to complain about the loud music, nudity, and drug usage, according to the Newark Advocate.
The trustees and residents complained about loud music during the early morning hours throughout the four-day event, which featured electronic dance music with ‘1 million watts of bass’. Some residents came to defend the Trickles and the event.
Resident Katie Lawhead told the trustees, “The noise was unbearable. You couldn’t watch TV, couldn’t sleep. It’s a slap in the face to the people here. There was a guy walking around naked on drugs, people urinating on the side of the road, someone broke into a neighbor’s fence. It was just chaotic. Something has to be done.”
The Trickle family, owners of the Legend Valley venue, denied the allegations of loud music past 4am and other issues, while also promising to do better next year.
“I made a deal with Lost Lands to quit the main stages at 12:30 a.m., and do small late-night stages in the campground,” Steve Trickle said. “I know you could not hear stages after 12:30, as I personally monitor the neighborhood volume myself.”
The Trickle family also stated that they had taken a range of additional precautions such as increasing on-site emergency services, an emergency helicopter on standby, detailed searches of people and vehicles for contraband upon arrival, hiring extra law enforcement, even going so far as to offer $500 to each of the 14 adjoining neighbors if they wanted to stay in a hotel for the weekend.
Licking Township Fire Chief Mike Wilson said, “I really think this concert kind of overwhelmed everybody. The amount of drugs up there alarmed me. I think the township should take a hard look at what we can do to get this thing under control.”
While concerns are circulating that the festival won’t take place in 2019, the organizers have signed a 5-year lease on the venue.

Follow us to one of Europe’s biggest festivals. This year’s destination: Great Britain!
Not all festivals like to completely redesign themselves every year; Airbeat One exists to do exactly the opposite. Held over 4 days in North Germany’s Neustadt-Glewe, the festival has its own camping, and marked its 17th year in 2018; providing a spectacular experience that gathered around 55.000 attendees per day, a striking ten thousand in growth since last year’s edition. The most important thing that makes Airbeat One special are its travel themes, allowing festival-goers to experience a whole different part of the world each year.
Headlined by some of the biggest names in dance music, among them Marshmello, DJ Snake, Hardwell and Steve Aoki, as well as legends such as Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond and Kaskade, this year’s destination was Great Britain.
Now, before I move to the individual stage designs and my experience, let me say that the festival layout and overall organization are top-notch. Everywhere around the site, staff and security are there to assist and the separate entrances and exits for VIP ticket-holders aren’t close to each other, something that really helped at times when a lot of people were going from the festival site to the camping area and vice-versa. The VIP camping area definitely made getting a VIP ticket worth; a great place to hang out with a pool, chill-out area and two separate small stages that were blasting tunes the entire day.View the 3 images of this gallery on the original article
The main site was super easy to navigate, and there were no issues with over-crowded spaces; something that was also really important when it came to the stages, as exits and bars were always easily accessible. When you were not enjoying the music at the stages, it felt like there was always something new to see, as merchandise shops, a tattoo booth, and plenty of activities and games were waiting for you to explore them.
The thing however that made it all much safer and fun – and this one is really important – is the cashless payment system that was introduced this year for the first time at Airbeat One. You could charge your bracelet using cash or a credit card at stations around the festival, and paying for a drink food or merch was as easy as just having it scanned by the staff. Every time you bought something, you could see how much cash you had left, and after the festival, you could log in from home, look at all your purchases, print receipts and transfer back the money you didn’t spend. This new policy made the experience so much more careless; you didn’t have to worry about how much cash you’ll carry on you, it being stolen, or anything of the sorts. Good job on this one Airbeat.
Let’s get to the most important thing, the stages! It was my first time at Airbeat One, but judging from videos of pictures from 2017, I noticed that the stages were massively upgraded in terms of production and size, with the addition of a fifth stage, the Arena.
The Mainstage was where the majority of attendees spent their time, and for a good reason. Big names like Neelix, Kungs, Lost Frequencies and Alan Walker filled some of the early slots, while headliners like Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Armin Van Buuren, Hardwell, Tiesto, Steve Angelo and more gave amazing performances. A good thing is that the Mainstage crowd never stayed the same; it was always recycling itself with people coming and going with every set, a thing that shows expert organization of time slots on all stages by the festival managers.
As with every year, the design of the Mainstage was brand new and wasn’t revealed until doors opened. Perfectly showcasing the Great Britain theme, it was equipped (as almost all stages) with everything from pyro, to lasers, to fireworks, making up for a breathtaking result, especially at nighttime.View the 4 images of this gallery on the original article
The Second Stage, home to the fans of Goa, Progressive and Psychedelic Trance, was in my opinion, the most carefully crafted and detailed stage of the festival. A huge grid of tents held by colorful columns was covering the entire space, while the stage looked close to a church and was sporting the most beautiful 3D Projection Mapping I’ve ever seen. In addition to the surround sound the stage had, blacklights were surrounding it, making the entire scenery glow in so many trippy and beautiful ways. Fabio & Moon, Klopfgeister, audiomatic, Schrittmacher, Perfect Stranger and many more threw down on the Second Stage until the early morning.
Right next to the second stage you can find the chill-out zone, a place where you can take some much-needed rest from all the dancing, and on the other side you’ll see The Arena; a large stage that was debuted this year at Airbeat One. Taken over by Boombox! on the first of the three main festival days, acts like Jauz, Carnage, Borgore and Cesqeaux destroyed the crowd. The Arena became home to the Transmission over the next two days, an event series that had its first and super impressive festival debut with melodic and progressive Trance sounds, having Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz, Ferry Corsten with his side project Gouryella and more perform at the stage.
Moving away towards the other side of the festival site, the Terminal and Q-Dance stages could be found. The Terminal was created to mimic an underground London club, foggy and mysterious, and was home to the more eclectic and melodic side of house, with acts like EDX, Bakermat, Nora En Pure, and Chocolate Puma perform, until “More @ Terminal” started; 2:00 to 8:00, some of the biggest Tech House, House and Techno DJs took over for amazing afterparty vibes. Black Coffee followed by Claptone threw down some House magic on Thursday, while Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Marek Hemman and DJ Hell traveled the crowd through the sounds of Techno in the coming days.
Lastly, the Q-Dance stage – that gets completely redesigned into a different animal every year – turned into a chicken, fully equipped with pyro, lasers, and lights from top to bottom, providing an amazing visual experience that suited the Hardstyle that was played by Angerfist, Da Tweekaz, Headhunterz and many more.View the 4 images of this gallery on the original article
And that’s it for the stages and my time at Airbeat One 2018! The experience as a whole was top-notch; the organization was flawless, the production was next level and there was always something new to explore. Definitely check it out if you haven’t gotten the chance to attend yet, and for those who were there in 2018: see you next year!
