Palm Tree Music Festival returned to The Hamptons for the 3rd straight year. I have had the pleasure to watch this festival grow from its inception and every year it gets bigger and better. Taking place at Francis S Gabreski Airport in Westhampton, the grounds are perfect for a summer festival. There is more than enough space for fun and dancing.

This year’s edition featured possibly its best line-up yet. Festival founder Kygo was of course on the line-up and joining him were Calvin Harris, Loud Luxury, Sam Feldt, Chantel Jeffries, Frank Walker, and Xandra. The Hamptons represent a special place for the Palm Tree Crew; it is of course where it all began in 2021. It is the perfect tropical location for the brand and a special day awaited everyone. I can’t wait for this festival to return once again.

The Festival Grounds

There are not many places that are perfectly built for a festival but I believe Francis S Gabreski Airport is one of them. It is situated in a hilly meadow with a landscape of trees surrounding the stage. The festival was the perfect level of crowded. There was a happy energy in everyone and really plenty of dancing room. You could walk around to any of the many food and drink options. The best perk was never having to wait too long to to the bathroom.

All tickets came with unlimited drinks and alcohol. There are not many festivals doing this right now and I am a big fan. There were countless vendors including The Cantina Brought to You by Diageo, Lucky Brand & Cotton Company, Juicy Couture, Aviator Nation, PUMA, Whispering Angel, COACH, Eva NYC, SmartSweets, Veuve Clicquot, Long Drink, ,, Bison Union, Essentia, Heineken, Blue Point, and Blade.

CELSIUS brought a desert oasis and a full wellness sanctuary (complete with a boxing ring). I loved all the little stands that presented different drinks. It feels like you are at a luxurious festival and I would come back to this location in a heartbeat for a concert. To top it all off was a collection of carnival rides including everyone’s favorite Ferris wheel. It allowed you to get a beautiful bird eye view of the stage.

Kygo and Support

Calvin Harris, Kygo, Loud Luxury, Sam Feldt, Chantel Jeffries, Frank Walker, and Xandra all brought their A-game to the festival. The daytime had all the electric sounds to get people pumped for the big acts to follow. Loud Luxury and Sam Feldt did a wonderful job with their sets playing classics for all to enjoy.

As Sunset hit and nighttime neared, Calvin Harris and Kygo were ready to rock the raucous Hamptons crowd. The King of Tropical House had the sunset slot and he brought all the right vibes. He brought out a bunch of special guests including Justin Jesso to perform a few times. Kygo closed his set always in special fashion with ‘Higher Love‘ and a beautiful rendition of ‘Firestone.’ When he brings out the live strings and violinists, you know it’s going to be a good time.

Calvin Harris

My favorite set of the night was Calvin Harris. His sound has evolved over the years but there is no one in dance music with as many dance-friendly hits as him. He can be regarded as one of the artists who broke EDM into the pop scene here in America. With tracks like ‘We Found Love,’ ‘Summer,’ and ‘One Kiss,’ the list could really go on and on. His set was perfect and left everyone satisfied.

He explored a lot of his new sounds merging his classic electronic sound with techno. He was not afraid to bring the underground to the main stage. Of course, he played his newest big track ‘Miracle’ with Ellie Goulding. Calvin Harris was formally inducted into the Palm Tree Crew family when Kygo gifted him a palm tree necklace – the brand’s symbol of community.

This festival is the perfect way to kick off Summer in New York. I hope this festival continues to return to the Hamptons and gets bigger and bigger. I can see it in the future adding more stages and expanding the grounds to accommodate even more people. It has been a pleasure seeing it grow.

Palm Tree Crew had expanded to be all over the world now. Its next stop will be the Egyptian Pyramids show set to take place in October 2023. That is one, you certainly won’t want to miss.

Subtronics Came Out The Gate Swinging At His First Cyclops Dome

Renowned riddim maestro and internet troll, Subtronics, hosted the first annual Cyclops Dome at Tacoma Dome on November 24-25 2023.

Feeling winter cast it’s shadow on Washington state, Subtronics brought an inferno of heat to Tacoma for an extraordinary weekend of music.

With support from MARAUDA, Of The Trees, Lil Texas, Black Carl! B2B Austeria and many more, the lineup was stacked from beginning to end.

With a capacity size double that of the Hampton Coliseum, the Tacoma Dome was the perfect spot to host nearly 20,000 headbanging riddim rats throughout the two-day event.

Also home to events like Excision‘s Thunder Dome, the event venue defended its reputation as a legendary electronic venue. The Tacoma Dome is quickly becoming a bucket list venue for music lovers across the board.

The expansive layout of the venue gave room to dance and play without running into other ravers, which happens too often at indoor events.

Not to mention that Subtronics’ lasers were nothing short of mind-blowing. Every single beat drop was paired with hundreds of lights and streams of color perfectly timed to create visual and audio ecstasy.

I go to a lot of Subtronics shows and this production was one of the best I’ve seen.

The unique hypnotic visuals for the LED screens behind his decks elevated the psychedelic journey to a whole new level.

Particularly noteworthy for me, personally, were the projections of Subtronics, (real name Jesse Kardon) playing live on the display. The passion and intensity he poured into his performance enthralled the crowd, and you could see the love he has for the community written all across his face.

For night one, Jesse focused on showcasing his newer tunes while night two was dedicated to some iconic throwback tracks.

In a refreshing new approach, he didn’t have his typical deck-hopping ADHD style. It was really special to hear some of my favorite songs played out live in their entirety without the abrupt shifts between tracks.

The king of VIPs premiered his new Rezz collab, a “Mind Pluck” VIP, “Omnidirectional” VIP, and a MAURAUDA collab.

Jesse has a knack for creating an intimate connection with his fans; always offering something new and sneaking glimpses into what’s next from Subtronics. Cyclops Dome was no exception. From VIPs to new artist collaborations, the night was engaging and full of suspense.

One memory I will hold near and dear to my heart is swaying left to right with my best friends, tears in my eyes, signing “Into Pieces” at the top of my lungs just to immediately go zero to one hundred when the beat dropped.

The love from everyone in that crowd lifted my spirits and made me so grateful for the EDM community we have built for ourselves.

Cyclops Dome has become Subtronics’ new baby and it’s obvious how much time and attention he put into bringing an unforgettable night to his fans.

After the finale, the DJ announced his 2024 dates for Cyclops Dome which will occur on November 14, 15, and 16 2024. See you next year!
