When I set off to write this piece, the plan was to compare San Francisco and New York. As a Dancing Astronaut reader you’re bound to know exactly what is going on in New York on any given weekend, but what about the fine city to the West? The home of the amazing sports teams, beautiful urban vistas, world class dining, rich history, and the most successful industry the world have ever seen? How does San Francisco fare for fans of electronic music?
Hot off the heels of his back-to-back “Poseidon” tour with Zedd, Porter Robinson has announced a new spring tour set to hit four major cities in the beginning of February. Boasting new light and video production, the tour will stop in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Toronto, and New York. The four shows have been labeled “Circle Assembly,” and are sure to some of Porter’s biggest yet.
Anyone who has seen the young North Carolinian live can attest to the fact that Porter Robinson throws one hell of a live show From his creative bootlegs, to his lightning quick mixing style, Porter Robinson’s sets are truly captivating. And with a new album in the works, you can be sure to expect some amazing unreleased material. Tickets go on sale Friday. Don’t sleep on this one.

Insomniac made its first move in New York earlier this year with the inaugural EDC NY, and the massive event company looks to continue its American expansion. We’re hearing from sources familiar with Insomniac’s plans that the company will be bringing its Beyond Wonderland event to the San Francisco Bay Area this September. While this information is (for now) unconfirmed, we’re hearing that the event will touch down in late September, with Saturday the 29th being the most likely date currently being thrown around.
Beyond Wonderland has previously been relegated to San Bernadino, taking place at the NOS Event Center for the past three years, while one event was held in Seattle. Our sources could not pinpoint an exact location for the San Francisco event, but it’s safe to say it will be large. (The most recent installment drew over 45,000 people in March.) We expect to hear more soon, so stay tuned!Posted by
Our video series Behind The Booth is meant to show off a side of the world’s biggest DJs in a manner we don’t normally get to see. Well, we have conquered the Soviets in this latest episode, snagging the opportunity to sit down with Swanky Tunes before their set at Ruby Skye. See a different side of Swanky Tunes, and hear them discuss them talk about their biggest tracks like “The Edge” and the impact of touring America. They even let their upcoming collaboration with Kaskade slip out, while explaining their past works with R3hab and Tiesto. Swanky has managed to pump out some of the biggest club tracks of the past few years, so it’s nice to see the men behind the productions step away from their machines for once.
The Behind The Booth saga continues… Who will be next?

Gina Star brings Tiesto and Mark Knight’s early 2011 hit “Beautiful World” back in style. Tiesto has been dropping this in his most recent sets including his performance at ILTC Festival in San Francisco. This remix is more dance-able than the original and accentuates the piano build up that lead into the vocals. It’s already been released via the Toolroom Miami 2012 album, but has caught steam very recently. Gina has been a busy gal, previewing her next tune “Midnight” (earned support from Armin, Nicky Romero, etc.), and announcing a Toolroom residency at Vessel SF (you can catch her this Friday in San Francisco).
After crushing the Marquee Day Club in Vegas earlier that day, Hardwell hurries on over to San Francisco to drop a 2 hour set at Ruby Skye. We got to chat with him about his relationship with Tiesto, why the Netherlands keeps pumping out superstar DJs, and what he has cooking in his laboratories in the near future. Hardwell informed us that there will be a sequel to “Zero 76″ his hit collaboration alongside Tiesto, as well as a new tune that he is crafting with young electro producer Porter Robinson.

I Love This City Festival hitting San Francisco and San Diego this Memorial Day Weekend (Updated with Ticket information)
A few days ago we brought you early news of a new festival coming to the West coast called “I Love This City,” but were qui
ckly alerted that the news was released a bit prematurely. Well, things are officially official, and the big difference is that now it’s hitting not one city, but two. Just as we exclusively reported, the show will come to The Lot at AT&T Park in San Francisco on May 26th and 27th, but now it will also be running at PETCO Park in San Diego on Saturday and Sunday of that same weekend. Tiesto will headline San Francisco and Skrillex will headline San Diego, but other confirmed acts include Laidback Luke, Steve Aoki, Chuckie, A-Trak, R3hab, Fareoh, and 12th Planet. More headliners will be announced on April 23rd, but ticket information will be available this Friday, March 16th.

Earlier today, Pierce Fulton released an hour long March mix that features a bunch of new edits towards the end of the hour. DA’s favorite edit happens to be at the very end — “Cheap levitra for sale
