Last year at Ultra Music Festival, 28-year old security guard, Erica Mack, was trampled by a group of people illegally entering the festival. This year Ultra Music Festival increased their security measures, but some people still managed to hop the fences and illegally enter Ultra Music Festival. Granted there were no reported injuries from people hopping the fence this year. Watch as this guy pulls some parkour in order to save himself $500 for the price of admission to Ultra Music Festival. Guy sneaks into #Ultra2015, but does it in an epic fashion

Led Zeppelin are without a doubt one of the greatest rock bands of all times. The London-bred quartet have left behind a legacy that rivals The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, and their mark on modern music is unmistakable. But all good things must come to an end, and since their split, the surviving members of Led Zeppelin have each moved on with solo projects over the last 40 years. Former front man Robert Plant’s solo career is now crossing paths with Diplo, as the pair recently announced a forthcoming studio collaboration.
Following Skrillex‘s work with Robby Krieger and the late Ray Manzarek of The Doors on “Break’n A Sweat,” Diplo is now bridging a huge generational gap, linking up with one of the most influencing rockstars and unmistakable voices of all time. Thus far, a simple Instagram image is the only evidence to show of the collaboration, but with two titans of this stature in the studio together, expect Diplo and Robert Plant’s collaboration to be a little more sophisticated and a little less twerk-tastic.
In an interview with FaceCulture last summer, Martin Garrix revealed that he’d been working on a song with Ed Sheeran. After meeting in Los Angeles, Garrix sent a chord progression to Sheeran, who in turn sent back a topline. The next month, Ed posted a picture on Instagram with the caption, “Finished up my very first EDM song with Martin Garrix, brilliant experience, looking forward to you all hearing it.”
It took seven months, but Ed finally got his wish: this weekend at Ultra Music Festival, the world got to hear “Rewind Repeat It.” Though the young DJ revealed to FaceCulture that he initially struggled to work with such a poppy vocal, the end result sounds as natural and effortless as can be. “Rewind Repeat It” features Martin Garrix and Ed Sheeran firing on all cylinders: a superstar producer crafting a sharp instrumental, a superstar singer laying down stunning vocals, and two superstar collaborators playing off one another like they’ve been doing it their whole lives. The collaboration can be streamed above, and more of Martin Garrix’s Ultra highlights are linked below.
Aside from bringing some of the hottest techno to the forefront of electronic music, part of 2000 and One‘s legacy revolves around Bitten Records. Now back on his own imprint for the fifth time in three years, “Power Clean” represents the legendary Dutch producer’s credentials wrapped into a tantalizing techno package. Dark, ominous, and brooding, the original powers through six minutes of gritty layering. Out now on Beatport and on vinyl, 2000 and One continues his streak of well-wrought underground electronic music on the heels of one of the industry’s most lauded weekends of the year.
To celebrate Piano Day, Nils Frahm’s new annual tradition to honor the universal instrument, Tale of Us unveiled this free original yesterday. More akin to a symphonic composition than their techno and deep house-laden discography, “Distante” is a haunting production complete with warping pads, crackling ambient noise, and of course, intermittent piano overlays. While lacking the driving kick and bass of their usual output, “Distante” bears a similar emotional capacity to the rest of their work: a mix of nostalgia, melancholy, and curiosity.

Electric Forest is one of those festivals known for pouring out the most incredible vibes and family feels. I personally have never been but the amount of beautiful stories I have heard makes me jealous year after year. One of the reasons for this may be due to how well Electric Forest connects with their fans. Seems like I am always hearing about something new even in its off season. The word records is going down Friday, June 26th, the previous record it at 10,554..so its really going to take every individual to be a part of this. If you plan on
