Electronic music visionary Paul van Dyk is delighted to reveal the first details of the second coming of We Are One, his Berlin-based festival spectacular. On July 6th the enigmatic, atmospheric, Renaissance-era surroundings of the city’s famed Zitadelle Spandau will swell to the sound of the very best in new, cutting-edge electronic music. Joined by a star-studded EDM co-producer cast, Van Dyk will re-purpose Spandau as a citadel of sound. Inside its awe-inspiring 15th century confines he will premiere the music from his forthcoming, hotly anticipated ‘Politics of Dancing 3’ album.
In 2010, as part of the celebrations to mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Paul van Dyk staged the We Are One event. It featured artists as musically and stylistically diverse as Armin van Buuren and Underworld, through to avant-garde performers like the Las Vegas-celebrated Blueman Group. With it, Van Dyk brought his ever-loyal fanbase another inventive, hyper-imaginative, unforgettable experience – one that has since moved into the annals of dance music legend.
Three years on, Paul has set in motion a return for We Are One. Moving from arena to festival grade, 2013 will see the event take place in the striking, history-rich setting of Berlin’s Zitadelle Spandau. Inside its ancient bastion walls, Paul will play his first Berlin-stationed, outdoor, open-air event since Loveparade.
“2010’s We Are One was an extraordinary night in my life. From the moment I left Berlin’s O2 Arena, after its climax, I’ve wanted nothing more than to do it all over again. For that reason it gives me great happiness to be able to bring you news that 3 years on from that momentous night, the second We Are One will be staged. I look forward not only to welcoming you to Berlin’s astonishing Zitadelle Spandau on the 6th of July, but also introducing you personally to music from Politics 3” – Paul van Dyk
Back on the 31st of December 2012, Paul gave his strongest hint yet that the coming year would herald a return for the illustrious ‘Politics of Dancing’ series. Electronic music forums around the world lit up at the news and speculation as to exactly what it would entail has been rife ever since. July’s We Are One festival will be the very first time and place anyone in the world hears the music PvD & Co. have been crafting for its third chapter. Playing alongside Paul throughout the day and night, will be a host of the world’s most gifted electronic sound designers.
Some 9 months after their launch, Nick Bracegirdle’s ensemble outfit, Chicane Live, have been holding arena audiences all over the world in their thrall. On July 6th they will be taking to the We Are One stage with a captivating live performance that will include the debut of Paul & Chicane’s first studio recording together.
The night’s line-up will also include Saharan-hot sounds of Aly & Fila, who will bring their Egyptrance sound to the Zitadelle. Also taking to the stage will be hot new VANDIT signings, SHato & Paul Rockseek, Holland’s First State, and German duo Stoneface & Terminal. The We Are One 2013 anthem will come courtesy of PvD and Canadian tough-trance powerhouse Arnej, who’ll also be playing the show, alongside many more, yet-to-be-announced artists and acts.
Early bird tickets for We Are One have just gone on sale. The doors will open on July 6th at 3pm, with the event start an hour later. Those purchasing the limited number of VIP tickets will gain admission to both the We Are One Festival as well as its exclusive after party (more info on which TBA).
As with 2010’s We Are One, this festival will represent a union of freethinking, Live-show-loving people in the thriving electronic music capital of Berlin. Come and join Paul in his fortress of sound as he premieres Politics of Dancing 3’s musical direction! This will be the event of Summer 2013 – a concert of sound & light people will be talking about for months to come. Make sure you’re at Spandau by securing your ticket now through the www.weareonefestival.com web-space.

In celebration of one of his most remarkable festival performances to date, Hardwell releases his awe-inspiring Miami 2013 Aftermovie, taking viewers on a nostalgic journey through his impassioned Ultra Music Festival performances. In the midst of winning two IDMA awards for best remixer and best European DJ, he descended upon Miami last month for two unforgettable sets at Ultra and his sold-out Revealed Recordings Miami event at Mansion Nightclub. This aftermovie exemplifies why Hardwell continues to gain such esteemed worldwide recognition through his breathtaking music and spectacular live performances.
The Hardwell Miami Aftermovie begins with a flashback at Ultra in 2012 capturing Hardwell’s monumental main stage performance and ecstatic reaction. Fast forward to 2013 and experience an emotional portrayal of the set that already has over 3 million views on YouTube, and has been named the “unanimous festival favorite” by Dancing Astronaut. With his technical expertise behind the decks, high energy, and an outstanding track selection, including a number of Revealed Recordings exclusives such as his collaboration with Dyro, “Never Say Goodbye,” Hardwell’s set has been one of the most buzzed about performances of the entire festival.
As the official soundtrack to Hardwell’s Miami aftermovie, “Never Say Goodbye” already proved to be a surefire favorite amid his explosive set at Ultra this year. Hardwell took the fast-rising label favorite Dyro on stage during his Ultra set, which created one of the most memorable moments of Ultra. This powerful festival anthem matches Bright Light’s distinct vocals with the essential energy that both Dutch trailblazers have exemplified across global club land. “Never Say Goodbye” is sure to provide an essential soundtrack to the peak time skyline this summer. “Never Say Goodbye” will be released on Hardwell’s own imprint Revealed Recordings the 20th of May.
Through impactful imagery and a refined, cinematic appeal, the aftermovie captivates viewers with the sentimental value that has come with Hardwell’s experiences. After blowing minds with yet another phenomenal set at Coachella this past weekend, it is clear that this is just the beginning for the dance music luminary that is Hardwell.
