Markus Schulz Announced for EDC Vegas 2013, Has Some Unfinished Business

The lineup for Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas 2013 has finally be announced and as expected Markus Schulz is officially set to play! Electric Daisy Carnival 2013 officially sold out last week before the lineup was released and we will be there the entire time covering the event.

Every couple of weeks for the past couple of months the topic of Las Vegas has come up and Markus has always responded that he has some unfinished business. That unfinished business is finishing his set that was shut down by the winds that shut down the entire festival on the second night.

If you were at or listening to the A State of Trance broadcast of Electric Daisy Carnival 2013 will remember the moment that Loops & Tings was interrupted by the announcement from Markus Schulz stating that the night was shutting down. It didn’t seem real at all but anyone who was there likely remembers how the speakers and stage setup were swaying in the wind. The initial announcement was that it was just going to shut down for an hour but it ended up being the whole night. He went on to play on the radio broadcast of A State of Trance that night before going out to play a surprise set on the Art Car for those who stuck around.

Stay tuned, there’s sure to be a pool party announced as well with Markus Schulz. In 2012 he played at Tao Beach with Ferry Corsten for over six hours. Ferry Corsten is on the lineup as well. New World Punx at a pool party? Let’s pray to the trance God’s!

Loops & Tings is rarely an opening tune but in our opinion it’d be a great tune to start with since that’s where we left off.

Scream Tour to Bring Visuals that Many Cities Never See

In an interview with Live for Live Music, Markus Schulz shared some details about the upcoming Scream Tour that should be exciting for many cities along the way.  Unless you’re in a big city chances are your local club or concert hall doesn’t have more than a standard lighting rig unless a tour like this comes through.  The original Scream USA Bus Tour press release had mentioned that they would be travelling with full production but the way it’s described here brings a new level of excitement.  Personally, I’ll be attending the April 12 date in Buffalo, NY (click here for tickets/info) and a setup like this is rare for most dj’s that come through the city.

On his upcoming cross-country bus tour:

“Well you know what..the idea behind it is, a lot of these cities I’ve been to, some of them I haven’t been to, but one of the things is, a lot of these cities when I goto them, they don’t have like, LEDs, or lasers or whatever…so I’d ask the promoter ‘hey, why can’t we get some LEDs for the night?’, and he’d say ‘well we have to get them shipped in from California or here or there…we don’t have them in our city’. So the idea behind this tour was to take our production, and take to these cities a show that people in Ibiza see all the time, or in New York City, or here in Miami. And the only way to really do that is to travel with a crew and bring your own stuff. So, you have to do it by a bus.

It’s going to be really exciting, you know. One of the cool things is when you look out at the audience and you know they’re experiencing something for the first time. This is the first time they’re seeing a production like this. You just see it in people’s eyes and it’s really exciting. For me, doing this bus tour is going to be really cool just to see those people’s eyes when they see the production for the first time.”

The rest of the interview is worth reading as he discusses the 10-hour set at Space, New World Punx and A State of Trance 600 at Madison Square Garden.
