Music First Trance Fiends Wanted

Are you a Trance Fiend? Show the world your journey to Dreamstate SoCal through Music First’s Series on YouTube!

When you think of the events and festivals that are highlighted in the electronic music scene the first things that come to mind are the massive stages, production elements, and DJs who are moving crowds with their music. More often than not one of the most important parts is forgotten: the people who are attending the events. With their latest announcement, Music First intends to change that!

Music First’s roster of talent includes beloved trance artists like John O’Callaghan, Bryan Kearney, and Solarstone amongst many others, but they aren’t the focus of this new project. Instead of telling their stories, Music First wants to tell the world yours through their new community-based vlog series on YouTube.

Open to all fans of trance from around the world, the new Trance Fiends series will highlight Featured Fiends who are making their way to shows and festivals all over. This doesn’t have to be a solo project, but could also be a collection from your entire group or rave family!

With Dreamstate SoCal on the horizon, this is the perfect chance for those who will be attending to show off the story of how they make their way to the festival and their thoughts during the weekend, as well as a way to share moments with their friends!

Want to participate? It’s easy!

Check out the guidelines and details below, send your footage to Music First, and they’ll edit it for you. The more footage submitted the better! Once approved by you, the video will be uploaded to the series for the world to see.
