La vorágine de especulaciones terminó y el cónclave organizador del Corona Capital 2013 reveló de manera muy original el cartel oficial de este año mediante un video en reversa que develó una a una todas las bandas que la Ciudad de México verá tocar en vivo.
In the late 90s and early 2000s, electronic music experienced a brief but influential revival on US airwaves, championed by the big beat sounds of Fatboy Slim, The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy and others - each of whom's aggressive approach to dance music took our popular culture by storm.

The charm of this era of dance music speaks to most dance music fans - it sparks nostalgia [...]

The Crystal Method , the Los Vegas-based, Grammy Award-winning electronic duo, have been forced to push back the release of their new studio album, and a number of upcoming tour dates have been canceled, as co-founder Scott Kirkland continues to recover from brain surgery.

He had surgery on April 11th, 2013 and [...]
The Crystal Method's Scott Kirkland (pictured right) has issued a statement revealing that he has undergone brain surgery, resulting in the delay or cancellation of the band's fifth album and tour dates.

News of Kirkland's health scare comes after New York DJ/producer Peter Rauhofer succumbed to a brain tumor. “Many months ago I started experiencing short, but painful headaches. Thinking they were related to too many flights (or one too many flights of tequila), I didn’t think too much about it, [...]

EDM News: On February 2nd of this year, The LA Times published an article detailing the drug-related deaths of 14 people who attended dance music events.
