Creative entertainment marketing and experiential agency UG Strategies announces the upcoming launch of Uphoric, the world’s first digital television network dedicated to the global music festival circuit. Uphoric will provide viewers with an exclusive look into the world of festivals, from backstage to onstage. Programming will include artist and music content, behind-the-scenes footage, live concert streaming, industry documentaries, insider interviews, reality TV, and much more. Uphoric will initially launch via online and mobile destinations, and will also distribute content via international third-party cable and multi-channel networks.
“UGS has been working closely with festivals around the world for over a decade, and has heard the demands of fans to have a platform that allows them to experience festivals, and the endless content that comes from them, at any given moment,” says Parag Bhandari, of UG Strategies.  Uphoric will not only explore the music, artist, industry, and brand trends within festivals, but also provide exclusive content created by festival professionals, with the personalities who actually bring you these events. Uphoric is a new digital network that brings the global festival experience to one destination, from a perspective never seen before.”
While the majority of Uphoric content is captured at music festivals, the network’s coverage will also document key film, food, fashion and other lifestyle aspects that surround these events. Original shows such as Artist Access, which showcases performing festival talent, On The Road, an insider’s look at festival touring life, and Industry Profile, which documents the careers of festival promoters, music producers, celebrity chefs, costume designers, booking agents, publicists, etc., are all in development.

Life in Color Announces “Big Bang – The Creation of Color” World Tour

Featuring Dillon Francis, Bingo Players, Diplo, DVBBS, Flosstradamus, David Solano and Many More

Twenty Seven Cities, Five Countries Announced For Phase 1

Last month, Life in Color capped off a stellar 2014 with their two-day Life In Color Miami Festival that brought in over 50,000 attendees and dumped 20,000+ gallons of paint on partiers. Heading into 2015, it’s all about “New Year, New Hues” as Life in Color announces its “Big Bang – The Creation of Color” world tour.

What is anticipated to be a 130 city tour in over 50 countries, phase 1 has been released. The world tour kicks off January 17 with Diplo, and aims to answer the age-old question: How did color come to be? It’s an ambitious pursuit spanning over four months that involves combing the country for the most rambunctious paint partiers in the universe, with help along the way from some of dance music’s most colorful characters: Dillon Francis, Bingo Players, DVBBS, Flosstradamus, Party Favor, David Solano and more.

Fans can learn about the origins of paint through the almighty “Paint Factory,” which Life in Color Miami attendees will recognize as one of the festival’s massive structures. The stage will accompany the “Big Bang – The Creation of Color” tour on all its dates. So get your tickets to your city and prepare for the countdown to the BIG BANG!

A month in advance of his upcoming North American tour with GTA, TJR releases ‘Buckle Up’ as a FREE DOWNLOAD, a track with a bouncy tempo and a title that builds anticipation for the musical mayhem.

“This was the opening track on my Diplo & Friends mix,” TJR explains of the release. “It was never finished and it’s pretty basic. But I always loved the lead and people were asking for it, so why not give it out?”

Universal Solution aka Gavin Holland returns to Anjunadeep with the Bandur EP,’ following 2013’s sleeper hits “Yukon” and “Osheen.”
Featured on the chart-topping Anjunadeep 06 compilation, title track “Bandur” showcases the high energy side of the Universal Solution sound, fusing low-end swells with a ravey vocal sample and trademark cosmic atmosphere.
“Lost Code” is a throwback to 90’s acid house, with a classic progressive twist – imagine DJ Pierre crossed with Tom Middleton. Subtle melodic flourishes ebb and flow in another intricate composition.
Closing the EP is “Wukari,” a ten minute epic through the full range of Gavin’s sounds. Beautiful cinematic soundscapes wash over an absorbing groove interspersed with sumptuous beatless moments.
