Transmission Festival, that place where light and sound travel at the same time

Transmission Festival is once again consolidated as one of the largest trance festivals in the world after a spectacular edition in front of 20.000 people.

They say, that the speed of the light travels faster than the . That is why, in a storm, the flash of light is seen before we hear the roar of thunder. In it O2 Arenacoincidentally, it happens that both speeds are balanced between them as one, forming an atmosphere that has very little to envy other indoor festivals. This, added to its theme based on another dimension, made us seem to be in a spaceship.
Despite being recognized as one of the biggest trance festivals in the world, if not the best, keep on continuous growth, you just have to see the sold out with 4 months to go of the celebration of the event, record of the festival. This is Transmission Festival and we are going to tell you how this incredible experience was.

We entered the O2 Arena shortly before the start of the event. Is a unique feeling be able to be at the venue of the event before the start. No one is around you, other than the staff or people accredited by the festival. You breathe in that atmosphere that we talked about and you start to imagine what is going to happen in a few minutes.
Transmission began and the manager for the warm up was Thomas coastline, who under the canvas of the spaceship, welcomed the first attendees.

One of the identity stamps Transmission is the story behind the Thematic. After each pause between sets, a short story is told. When speaking of "another dimension," the setting is a spaceship that after each set, it takes off and advances more and more. This started after the set of Thomas coastline, showing the set-up of the ship and leaving us the first lasers show of the event.


INCREDIBLE is the right word to describe this festival, which edition after edition continues to grow. The intro of Transmission Festival was a show, that's how we live it.

Darren Porter he would be the first to appear after the warm-up. The Englishman left us several IDs along the way, as well as several nods to the past with the bootleg of Alessandra roncone al Elements of life de Tiesto and closing with Universal Nation de Push.

I picked up the witness Giuseppe Ottaviani, maybe one of the most demanded and acclaimed artists in Transmission. His was the anthem of the festival with driftmoon with the name of Another dimension, as the theme of the event. He showed up with his live 2.0, in which there was no lack 8K, Panama or the remix to Something Real de Armin van Buuren. After its closure, the O2 Arena already had almost all the full capacity.

The time of night came, Ferry Corsten he presented himself under his alias System F. It began with a violin edit to Out of the Blue. Rang Ignition, rang spaceman, rang Exhale, rang Solstice... and closed again with Out of the Blue, to get the last tear out of us. A set full of emotions, which does not need to dance or jump, just listen, close your eyes and let the music enter you.

At the equator of the event, MarLo was next. Perhaps the one that surprised us the least, also possibly due to the fact that it was the easier to see around Europe. Whisper (total admiration for HALIENE, who gives voice to this issue), Lighter Than Air with feenixpawl or the remix to Fix You de Coldplay they were part of his set.

shift Cosmic Gate, another of the most acclaimed groups of the event. The German duo started out very strong with Come with me and showed us the version 2.0 of its best known themes as The Wave y Not Enough Time, not as remixes, if not as a version of how these songs would be if they were released in 2019. The highlight, without a doubt, was with Exploration of Space, very similar to the theme of the event.

Key4050 it would be the penultimate performance of the event. John O'Callaghan y Bryan Kearney, who form this duo, were able to unite two worlds completely different: trance and techno. In it we could enjoy a good part of his album Tales from the Temple, in which they had been working nothing more and nothing less than 16 years.

blastoyz He was in charge of closing the festival and he proved to be fully qualified for it. The Israeli dj completely blew up the room with an energetic psy trance. I do not miss After Dark, his collaboration with Seven Lions nor are two of his best-known songs such as parvati valley y Mandala. Special mention also to the remix of WHITENO1ZE & System Nipel al Man on the run de Dash Berlin and spectacular lasers show to close the festival.

Without a doubt, we are very satisfied of our first edition at Transmission Festival. Regarding the event, a amazing staging, both stage and audiovisual montage, very difficult to find in other one-day indoor festivals. Regarding the organization, there are 10. Quite a few food and drink stalls (also obvious as it is a stadium that hosts events of all kinds) as well as a single floor exclusively for lockers. The only one, but perhaps it would be the amount of glasses that we found on the floor of the stage, something that the organization did not the wizard we must change.

Finally, thank United Music the opportunity to cover a festival of these characteristics. For us it has been quite an experience, which we hope to repeat again. Totally in love with Transmission!

About Erik

One summer of 2014 I wondered what an electronic music festival would be like and 5 years later, I wonder what would become of me without such a festival regularly..
