TRANCE MEMORIES OF THIS SUMMER: TND STAGE AT TIMESHIFT [DAY 2/3]

Yeeeey! Giuseppe Ottaviani day!

I posted the pics from Timeshift day 2 on Trancers.ro page the other days, but didn't had the chance to sit, relive that amazing night and put down my thoughts about it. Now, that I am thinking about it (while listening to a new set from Giuseppe, of course!) cannot belive it was real!

It all started with me running from the other side of Bucharest to the venue for THE most important meeting of this summer: meeting with Giuseppe and finally a very nice chat with him. Even tough I've seen him before at other events and said hi, nothing compares with actually sitting in front of him for almost an hour and talking with him about music. I was a highlight I will never forget and I am over the moon (even now, months after the event) that he accepted my invitation. From seeing him prepare for the set to listening his thoughts about this industry, everything went perfect. You can read all about it here.

After having this interview, we went back to the hotel to prepare for the new night. We got back to the venue right when Markus Schulz was about to start playing. We lost Yoel Lewis and Arkhnam Nights, but I heard they were great! Markus has a really entertaining set. Even tough I am not a huge huge fan, I liked it and danced my shoes off it! Proper warm-up for what was about to come.

Giuseppe had a great set. Obviously. I could never be dissapointed by what he does. Started with a couple of IDs, continued with more IDs, but also played tracks like: Loneliest Night with Tricia McTeague, Home with Jennifer Rene, Lumina, Firefly with Kyler England, Prophecy (PureNRG) or some Romanian trance from Starpicker - Sinophia.

As he lately does on his Live 2.0 shows, he had multiple camera capturing the set. And, a part of it was streamed live on his monthly Go On Air 2.0. Check it out and tell me if I am wrong with saying how great it was!

After Giuseppe, it was time for the one and only Standerwick to come and make us fall in love again with trance music. Not only he had a great set, but we enjoying the sunrise with him playing was something I will not forget too soon.  We had a lot of funny moments in the backstage too, before the set and I am happy I got to see the goofy Ian again.

Awesome memories. Awesome people to see again. Awesome music to dance. Awesome goosebumps to have! This is the long story short of my second day of Timeshift. I hope you had an amazing one too. From what I saw over the social media, you had a great one. Memories from 3rd day and a very special semi guest post coming very soon on Trancers.ro! Stay close!

4 stages, 20 (+) DJs to see and a whole family to reunite at Timeshift festival [ontheroad]

After 4 days of complete madness at Luminosity Beach Festival in Amsterdam (full review coming soon), here I go again! This time at TimeShift Bucharest Music Festival. A festival that promises to fuse the science into the fiction and into the music and take you to another dimension. I must admit: I didn't have too much hope about it when I first saw one of their headliners: David Guetta. But slowly, after announcing even more names and some really strong confirmations from the community, I came to accept this is going to happen. Another festival will take place in Romania. Another festival will drive the music people crazy for one more weekend this summer.

The news about it, the line up, all the details, are not new. Most of you already know them since the first share. TimeShift will take place between July 20 and July 23 at Romexpo on 4 different stages: Mainstage, Kristal by Ahead Stage, Control Stage, Black Rhino and TranceEnDance Stage. These 2 last stages are Black Rhino on Thursday and Sunday and TrancEnDance on Friday and Saturday, as they show in the promo materials.

The most important stage for me is without doubt the TrancEnDance stage. The stage that will mark my whole experience with the festival and complete the "not to miss" events list of the summer. They planned 2 days of true trance madness and I cannot wait to see all the DJs from the lineup!

I will see again: Cosmic Gate, the duo I am fan-girling so much everytime I see them; John O'Callaghan, who I saw a couple of weeks ago and I cannot believe will see again in such a short time; Ruben De Ronde, Hazem Beltagui, Markus Schulz, Bogdan Vix and Standerwick - another DJ (I am crushing on) I am thrilled to see play. Last, but not least my italian music crush, the music lover I simply adore, the one and only Giuseppe Ottaviani and his Live 2.0.  This man is pure music in disguise. He inspires me so much with his music, with his work, I remain speechless every time I listen to him. If I could, I would go all around the world for him and I am pretty sure I will never get bored by one of his sets.

I will also see for the first time Ben Nicky (missed him when he first came to Bucharest), Estiva, Arkham Knights, Yoel Lewis, Chicane, Gareth Emery and (yes, I know :-s) Above & Beyond.  Very curious about what these never seen (for me) DJs will bring up. I saw a couple of recorded sets from them, but I really want to enjoy the full live experience. I know Above and Beyond came to Romania 4 more times years ago, and I will never forgive myself for missing them, but this time, at this festival I am coming no matter what!

Plane tickets ready. Accomodation ready! Flag ready! Camera ready! Friends ready! Me ready! Ready to board on the plane on Friday morning and ready to dance my shoes off for 3 days. Ready to enjoy another trance weekend with the Romanian Trance Family. Ready for the music. The only things missing are some new TRANCE T shirts to rock on the dancefloor. But that is already work in progress!

Ready to also meet new people. To make new friends. To find other music lovers. Are you ready? Who is on your "To see" list? Who dont you want to miss? Let me know in the comments below, or in a message here, on Facebook, on Instagram, Youtube, anywhere you want!

PS. Tickets are up for grabs here, and you can find out more details on timeshift.ro.
