5 reasons (+ extra) - why I'm going to FSOE 450 UK (Manchester)

Hi there trance family! I am Oana and in the next couple of minutes we'll talk about a trance heaven on earth.

I know I already wrote about it  and I know I will probably repeat myself, but I cannot cannot wait for Future Sound of Egypt 450 in Manchester on October 1st. Bought the tickets in April and since then I am waiting.. And waiting.. And waiting for the day to finally come.  Aaaaaand in 3 days we're finally gonna land in Manchester and enjoy the trance ride of this autumn. I was thinking what can I tell you, how can I convince you of the magnitude of this thing, how can I describe my feelings, and the only I can do this is was a 5 reasons list:

1. Aly and Fila. These 2 guys are simply amazing and FSOE it is in my opinion one of the best trance radio show lately. Simple, true and faithful to this awesome music.

2. Special guest: Gouryella. It is a simple word, it is a classic word. It is trance royalty. I was hyped when  Ferry finally announced this year some Gouyella performances and I am glad I get to experience it at FSOE. Since they announced there will be a special guest. I had my thought about who it might be and Gouryella was defnitely no.1 in my top 3 guesses. Fun fact, I was at a wedding when they made the official announcement, so imagine me staring at the phone, trying to get better service and praying for the perfect news while dancing and sharing happiness with the newly weds.

3. This huuuuuge, but huge line up! Just look at all these names: A&Z, Alan Morris, Amir Hussain, Dan Stone, Darren Porter vs. James Dymond, Fady & Mina, Ferry Tale vs. Dan Stone, Jordan Suckley, Liam Wilson vs. Amir Hussain, Mohamed Ragab, Omar Sherif, Solarstone and Giusepe Ottaviani bringin their Pure NRG act, Reorder vs Driftmoon, Simon O Shine, Simon Patterson,. How can you say no to this line up? I couldn't.  Also, I developed a small crush on Giuseppe a couple of years ago, so I really need to see him again and dance my shoes off on the dancefloor during the Pure NRG set.

4. Only FSOE in Europe this year. Even though I saw Fila to an older event and he's coming back to Romania in October, I wanted more. I wanted for once to experience the FSOE magic. And since I couldn't go to Luxor for a weekend, I choose the simpler version. Simpler because it's closer. But I really hope for a trip to Egypt, next year...

5. The trance family. I always said trance is connecting awesome people, and this event makes no exception. I met a lot of beautiful people this year, I will reconnect with some in Manchester, but I will also make new friends. Here's the thing with the trance community. Even if it may sound cliche – this trance family term, ohh best family in the world.. and so on, it is actually  TRUE. It is a fact. I am not saying other ”music families” are not awesome, because I don't know them and most likely they're awesome too, I am just talking about my opinion about the community I am a part of.  Most of the people I met are so friendly, so nice, so perfect, I couldn't ask for more. I cannot wait to make new friends and as I already said on the blog if there is someone that wanna meet, to just come the little brunette with the trance t shirt, romanian flag attached, come, give me a hug and say hello. And from there I am pretty sure we'll just go with the flow.

These are my main thoughts about the upcoming FSOE, but I also asked the amazing people of FSOE about more. Here is what they said:

1. Biggest trance event
2. Worlds best DJS
3. The amazing trance family
4. 1 massive party
5. Forgetting all you worries for the night
6. Sharing the love for the music
7. Because if you are not there you will definitely regret it


1. Simon O'Shine. Then the obvious ones.


2. Raving is a major stress release!
3. I love pretty much every DJ on the line up!
4. My fella pretty much thinks Ferry Corsten is GOD!
5. I love trance!!!!!

If you have more please feel free to share them by commenting below or just message them to me Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I hope I will see a lot of you awesome people in Manchester, and till then don't forget to support your favorite artists and keep listening to this awesome music.

Trance on!

ON THE ROAD: FSOE 450 UK 'Kingdoms'

Here we go! On the road again. This time to FSOE 450 Kingdoms in Manchester, UK! And I can't express enough my happiness regarding this one. As soon as I saw the line up, I knew I have to get there and enjoy heaven on earth again. On October 1st, we all unite again and feel the most beautiful sounds. We'll be one big happy trance family dancing on the dance floor all night long!

The line up is pretty perfect, if you ask me and I can't wait to finally see all these amazing artists: A & ZAlan MorrisAly & FilaAmir HussainDan StoneDarren PorterDriftmoonFady & MinaFerry TayleJames DymondJordan SuckleyLiam WilsonMohamed RagabOmar SherifSolarstoneGiuseppe Ottaviani Pres. Pure NRG LIVE, ReOrderSimon O'Shine and Simon PattersonI saw Aly & fila a couple of times, Darren, James, Jordan and Simon O'Shine this year at Luminosity, and can't wait to see them again. Also, the other artists I never saw. They are all amazing and deserve all the support in the world.

Aaaaaaaaaand the special guest they announced on July 9th - Gouryella! Even since I got the tickets, I knew it will be great, but when they confirmed Gouryella as their special guest, I was thrilled. I always wanted to experience a live set from Ferry under this alias and now I finally can. ^_^

And the location they choose is great: Victoria Warehouse. On October 1st it will definitely fill up and we'll all smash it! Just take a look at some pics of the venue and imagine the possibilities.

I know trance scene is quite strong in UK, but this event just raises the bar even higher. After the huge success of FSOE 350 in 2014, FSOE 400 last year (the event that got a special celebration at The Great Pyramids!!!), over 40 DJs playing at these events in Egypt, USA, Australia, Poland, Argentina, Guatemala, Mexico and Belarus this radios show and its celebration made indeed history for all the trancers out there.

It is not just the line up that draws me into this event. It is the story. The connection with Egypt. With Ancient Egypt. I've always been a fan of Ancient Egypt, his legends, the architecture, their religion and everything related. I love how they incorporated all these elements into the FSOE culture: from music to flyers. From people to vision. Just look at Anubis on the flyer and you'll understand my point.

There is no need to say more about it. I know during that period (September - October) that there will be a lot of trance events, but if you want something different and unique you'll definitely want to come to this one. I am just glad to have by my side the same people I went to Luminosity with and I am sure we'll have a blast. So Andrei and George get ready for a perfect weekend. I wish I would've convinced more Romanian trancers to come, but there is still time. I just hope my pitch will be good enough. If  not, the trailer will sum it up. Just watch it, love it and share it with the world:

Also, the guys behind all this madness Goodgreef and Rong Manchester already planned the pre party aaaand the after party, so we'll enjoy around 20 hours of pure trance music. If that doesn't convince you, I don't know what will. For the pre party they got Allen & Envy as headliners and for the after party they will announce soon more details. Stay close I'll be sharing them with you too.

You can find the official FB event here and RSVP. Also, you can find more details on their website and also buy your tickets from there. Hurry up, there aren't too many left.

Also, if you wanna meet just come to the short brunette with the Romanian flag give her a hug and say hi. I love to meet new people and trance people are the best. Also, I may have some Trancers.ro goodies with me to give.  Trance on!
