Adrian Lux - 14:40 – 15:35
Having made some serious splashes in the digital pond with 2010’s beautified Strawberry and the hugely acclaimed Axtone instalment, Teenage Crime – a major Summer hit that is still getting hammered by the likes of some of the greatest within the industry, Summerburst is in for a treat as the new single Boy has been fired across for press.

His distinguished and uplifting sound has led to indenture with the influential and world renowned Ultra Records. As premiered just a couple of months back in his show at Ambassadeur, Fire is the 2011 follow-up to his 2010 trademarker and is certain to be a headliner amongst this year’s releases of his. Being one of the greatest Swedish exports within the electronic dance music aristocracy, Lux is now preparing the release of his remix of the legendary Daft Punk and their Derezzed single, taken from their most recent soundtrack album for Disney’s Tron: Legacy movie.
Dada Life – 16:00 – 16:55
Having caught the attention of superstar Tiësto and his wide fanbase, Dada Life has certainly had an admirable journey, from the release of The Great Fashionista Swindle in 2007 to the riot on streets across Los Angeles earlier this year, fueled by the shut-down of the Swedish duo’s live show on Avalon. Their distinguished and soulful productions have given birth to several chart-topping singles, which resulted in global buzzes about the notorious innovativeness of the two Swede’s. Since the sensational rework of Benny Benassi’s legendary Satisfaction to the groundbreaking bleeps of Unleash The Fucking Dada, Dada Life rocked 2010 in and out, scoring the anthem for Tomorrowland alongside the national brothers Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike and istalling themselves on the influential Be Yourself Music with the eminent Cookies With A Smile. As the reputable duo entered 2011, the out-and-out fans saw Dada Life bring White Noise / Red Meat and Fight Club Is Closed (It’s Time For Rock ‘N’ Roll) to the top.
John Dahlback with guest vocalist Erik Hassle – 17:00 – 17:55
He’s probably one of the most distinguished producers within electronic dance music and with a global major under his belt, Swedish John Dahlback’s career has been nothing but astounding. His timeless signature sound has paved the way for successes in most House genres. Although his preferences are leaning towards scoring smashers by himself, the highly respected Dahlback has been doing his share of collaborations during the 21st century, teaming up with artists like Avicii, Sebastian Ingrosso and more recently – the newly launched DJ and production outfit alongside Albin Myers named MyBack. As his beloved Mutants imprint reached star status upon a prestigious collection of releases on their shelves, Dahlback’s innovativeness knows no boundaries and has been one of the main force behind the eminent ascent of the label. Following the long-awaited release of Flirt on Erick Morillo’s Subliminal, the Swede has already been responsible for numerous hits this year and recently unveiled a bunch of new productions lined up for the press as well.
John Dahlback feat. Andy P – You’re In My Heart
Calvin Harris – 18:00 – 18:55
He blew up from Scotland and the corners of Dumfries in 2007 with the catchy Acceptable In The 80’s, but it was 2009’s glorious I’m Not Alone that established Calvin Harris among producer’s within the industry and led to the starting shot of the Calvin Harris-frenzy. Not until the release of Flashback, success was a limitless fact of the result of countless plays of the Scotsman’s groundbreaking singles on every major and minor dance event across the globe and was a crucial reason to his distinction as the ”Best Dancefloor Filler” at the NME Awards in 2009. Harris’ imperial array of spectacular qualities, including a wide production knowledge as well as that sensuous voice of his, has paved the way for his eminent reputation as a major player behind the decks. 2010 begun and You Used To Hold Me and the remnants of his collaboration alongside Tiesto steadily emerged the centre of electronic dance music to further prevail Harris’ prestigious character. As the staggering Awooga successfully kickstarted his year of 2011 off, the Scotsman has just announced his new single alongside influential singer from New York, Kelis lined up for the Sony Music press on June 12th.
Eric Prydz – 19:00 – 20:25
Pryda. Cirez D. Eric Prydz. The man of many names has, since his initial appearance as number one on the global peak charts with the major radio hit from 2004, launched a total of three record label’s, all which serve the purpose of the mastermind himself, started his own family as well as conquering the complete industry with his innovative and magnificent sound. He’s become a highly-regarded producer and icon of the underground scene, starring as the brilliant man behind several smashers under numerous aliases and production outfits. His imaginative crafts have influenced and inspired up and coming producers over a bare decade and led to the respected safe hold of camp Prydz. The peerless sounds of Niton and Pjanoo and many others have surpassed the names of success by all means as his name stands at the heart of a prevailing music genre. The Swede just uncovered his new and groundbreaking live show, appropriately named EPIC. Frankly, epic doesn’t even come close to describing the endless insight of Mr. Prydz and as he’s just announced the release of the next EP on Pryda Recordings is due out shortly, his appearance at the vast arena in Stockholm is nothing but anticipated.
Avicii – 20:30 – 21:55
The golden boy from Sweden has gone from an unkown bedroom producer to an all-arounded, hugely-acclaimed superstar of its true kind in a bare couple of years. Touring the world, collaborating with some of the greatest, including Tiesto and Sebastian Ingrosso, and producing unstoppable anthems are results of the mastermind’s much-admired back catalogue. As 2010’s chart-topping Bromance is still doing wonders on clubs and festivals, Avicii is all about the ever so uplifting sounds of melodic house that has propelled him to the forefront of the industry. A publicly loved icon that, with the stunning achievements from last year under his belt, peerlessly is headed towards limitless recognition in 2011. Having fired away his sublime rework of the immortal Daft Punk, this year is crammed with tunes lined up for release like Silhouettes, Nothing Without You and Levels to name a few. The instantly memorable version of Eurythmics’ almighty Sweet Dreams has been an epic juggernaut on dancefloor’s. Frankly, epic doesn’t even come close to describing the magnitude of that killer cut of a tune. From the sun-splashed tones of Penguin to the dizzying sounds of Blessed, the man, responsible for waving the industry with a revolution of piano house, has got some serious anthems prepared to kickstart the Summer off with a burst in his fellow hometown Stockholm.
David Guetta – 22:00 – 00:00
Responsible for numerous hit singles, French David Guetta has managed to affirm himself as a common name on charts across the globe. As the release of Just A Little More Love alongside vocalist Chris Willis in 2001 was far away from inglorious, his highly successful career scampered away and when dropping what might’ve been the tune of the last decade – the established Love Is Gone which has been a validated floorfiller the past couple of years, he was elevated to a firm headliner of the electronic dance music industry. The highly-regarded Frenchman has, ever since, scored dozens of smashers such as When Love Takes Over, Sexy Bitch and Gettin’ Over among others, crossing path with the rest of the music world. His highly prosperous collaborations with such familiar names as Akon, Kid Cudi and Rihanna has resulted in the complete music industry facing the rapid advancement of the house scene. His continuously increasing fanbase is undoubtedly the positive result of his challenged choice of collaborations. As the reverncing Where Them Girls At is doing unstoppable climbs on charts all around, Guetta is sure ready to seize Stockholm as a top-tier headliner in June.
The Australian Nervo twins return to Stockholm and the halls of White Room with their new collaborations alongside Avicii in full swing. Although they draw sword alongside French David Guetta and American pop star Kelly Rowland in 2009, starring as the masterminds behind the lyrics of the chart-topping When Love Takes Over, the sisters’ first solo smash-single didn’t reach the light of day until the Miami festivals of last year in shape of the extraordinary This Kind Of Love. As their trademarker helped Nervo travel the world to make career for themselves, including the headlining position in 2010’s major Face-Lift tour alongside Paul Oakenfold and Chuckie, it did not take long until Nervo yet again joined forces with the sensitivity of Ollie James’ voice to present the feel-good floorfiller Irresistible, as premiered by Pete Tong in his prestigious Essential Selection on BBC Radio 1. They’re behind the lyrics of hits from reputed icons within the music industry, including Kesha, Pussycat Dolls, Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue and Armin Van Buuren among others, which led to a worldwide recording deal with the EMI, joining in on the artist stab alongside Swedish House Mafia and many more.

Where: White Room, Jakobsbergsgatan 29
As the name suggests, German’s earnest DJ and producer was, by some, selected the golden boy of 2010 and has had global prosperities with his vibrant sound. Success has been unavoidable for Thomas Gold as he struck the industry with the devastating force of his firmly appealing anthem alongside Alex Kenji in late of last year. As the dynamics of his remarkable single on Toolroom exploded onto the House scene, Gold marched towards Dirty South’s well-known Phazing towers, putting his head together with Spain’s David Tort and David Gausa. The limitless energy of Areena has led to worldwide cognisance as well as being one of the origin’s to two beheld instalments on Size Records, including the groundbreaking AGORa that reached some serious acclamation, and Blowing Up a remix alongside the regally influential remixer Axwell for his esteemed Axtone Records. With that said, we can surely state there’s nothing short of Gold for the German. It’s been announced that the two recently named masterminds have been cooped up in the studio during Spring, crossing swords yet again to crusade the industry with Sing To Me – a new collaboration them in between that’s told to contain the uplifting sounds of the ”massive big room synths” according to Mr. Gold himself.
