UNITED MUSIC BRINGS YOU THE NEW SUMMER PLEASURE ISLAND DANCE FESTIVAL!
The United Music Agency, which organises the greatest dance events here, such as Sensation or Transmission, presents another unique concept, this time a summer dance festival called PLEASURE ISLAND. This festival will take place at the beginning of summer, on Saturday 24th July 2010 from 12 p.m. in the Festivalpark complex at the airport in Hradec Králové, where more than 60 DJs from here and abroad will perform on seven stages, with appearances by the greatest stars of the dance scene. Ticket pre-sale begins on 1st March in the Ticketpro network.
“We have been considering organising our own dance festival for several years, because we are convinced that the national public deserves a full-value dance festival of worldwide quality, and now is the right time to offer such a festival “ said Martin Kučera from the organising agency United Music, and added: “Visitors can look forward to an absolutely unique festival, which currently has no equivalent in our country and which will be conceived completely differently to events that everyone has been used to in the past.“
The United Music Agency is organising PLEASURE ISLAND together with the leading Dutch Art of Dance Agency. This agency has organised PLEASURE ISLAND for several years now in Holland, where this festival is one of the main summer dance events. Art of Dance is also the organiser of hundreds of successful parties, which include concepts such as Fabulous, Masters of Hardcore, Dominator, and others. “After 5 years of organising the Pleasure Island Festival on Dutch land, it is the Art of Dance Agency’s greatest pleasure to work with United Music on the first year of this festival in the Czech Republic. Art of Dance is well known thanks to the high production standards of its events, and it wishes to present the highest production quality during the festival in the Czech Republic, so that all visitors have the opportunity of enjoying Pleasure Island to the maximum“, says Hans Smit from the Art of Dance agency.
Thanks to this partnership PLEASURE ISLAND will offer a standard due to which thousands of fans visit Dutch festivals annually. The Dutch team will take care of all creative work, such as designing the main stage, decorating the whole area and individual stages, special effects or performance and will supervise the production of all individual parts of the festival. The decoration, special effects, costumes and other materials will be brought from Holland. The Dutch Vision Impossible company will traditionally take care of the video projection. Everything will be on this year’s theme of ILLUSIONS. The Hradec Kralove Festival Park will be transformed into a magical landscape, where you will be able to meet magicians and illusionists, with various fantastic characters and scenery, which will give the festival a wholly unique and unmistakeable atmosphere.
The festival itself will continue for 18 hours, which means that the gates will open on Saturday 24th July at 12 p.m. and the musical production will continue until Sunday 6 a.m.. The surrounding villages and city districts have been informed of this and have permitted the festival.
The festival music program will take place on seven stages and will start on Saturday morning, offering undoubtedly the best line-up, which will have no competition within the scope of dance festivals in this country. The greatest stars of worldwide House, Trance, Techno and Hardstyle music will appear at the PLEASURE ISLAND Festival, along with many talented performers from home and abroad. All fans of the hardest offshoot of dance music will be pleased by the news that for the first time in the history of dance festivals here the program will also include an individual Hardstyle stage. The main stars will appear on a monumental open-air stage, with an unusual concept, similar to the main stages at large festivals in Holland. Two large –capacity tents will be reserved for Trance and Techno styles. More tents as well as the large hangars will be used for the other stages. The most popular clubs, such as Mecca, Studio 54 and the Ostrava Fabric, will also be presented here. The final appearance of the line-up for the individual stages will be published within one month from the start of ticket per-sale.
“We have put the line-up together with Art of Dance and have chosen names that fans request most frequently. But we also wish to introduce new talents from all the presented genres, which have appeared as the most popular here on our internet survey. We are convinced that this musical dramaturgy will provide Pleasure Island with the potential to attract up to 15 000 visitors and, if this strategy is successful, we are prepared to expand this festival and continue to occupy the position of the largest and best quality dance festival here and, in the future, in Central Europe from where thousands of fans visit our events annually.“ adds Martin Kučera.
