Cazzette at Venue on Thursday, April 5
The festival kicks off at Venue on Thursday night with the rising Swedish duo Cazzette. These guys have come out of nowhere and quickly made a name for themselves with epic electro and dubstep remixes of Avicii, Swedish House Mafia, Adele and more. The last time they were in Vancouver they opened for Avicii at the VCC and generated quite a buzz. Most recently they played on the main stage at Ultra Music Festival in Miami which shows just how fast Cazzette is blowing up.

AN21 at Celebrities on Friday, April 6
We saw AN21 the last time he was in Vancouver alongside Max Vangeli and he put on one of the best house shows I’ve ever seen. This show is FREE for everyone who got on the huge guestlist Blueprint made open to the public. If you got onto the list be sure to get to the show early because its first come, first served and it will be packed. Also, he’s got a new album in the works so you can expect to hear some big new tracks.

Armin van Buuren, Steve Angello, & Morgan Page at the Vancouver Convention Center on Saturday, April 7
The main event is at the Vancouver Convention Center on Saturday, April 7, and features Armin van Buuren, Steve Angello and Morgan Page. Apparently the production for this one will be biggest Blueprint has ever done, with CO2 cannons, confetti, lasers, LEDs and more. We were at the last VCC show in February and it was an unbelievable night of music.

Blueprint favorite, Morgan Page will provide the opening set to warm up the crowd. He’s a very talented progressive and electro house DJ with over a decade of experience behind him. Following him will be Steve Angello, who is one third of Swedish House Mafia. He is one of the most prominent names in the world of big room house music and is sure to have the dancefloor exploding with energy as he plays major house anthems.

Armin van Buuren needs no introduction as he is probably the biggest and most respected name in electronic dance music. He was ranked the #1 DJ in the world from 2007-2010 and #2 in 2011. This legendary producer/DJ has played every big music stage and festival around the world over his celebrated career. I am far too excited to see him perform live as he masterfully takes us on a journey through the finest trance music.

Official Afterparty with Mystery Guests at Celebrities on Saturday, April 7
Celebrities is open until 4 am for this after-party, which will likely feature one or two of the headliners from the VCC show. For anyone who thought the main show was too expensive for their taste this is a perfect option because you’ll still get a chance to see a major DJ perform (likely Morgan Page, and possibly Steve Angello as well). I’ve also heard rumors that Jochen Miller will be making a special appearance, which is something to get very excited about.

Gemini and Koan Sound at Celebrities on Sunday, April 8
Two growing names in the world of dubstep will close out the weekend of shows. As part of the UKF Spring tour, Gemini and Koan Sound are sure to blow the roof of the club with heavy basslines and powerful drops. This show will provide a solid finish to the incredible weekend of parties if you’ve still got gas in the tank.
