THREE REASONS PEOPLE WHO CAMP AT BEYOND WONDERLAND ARE GOING TO HAVE THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES

#2 Silent and Not-So-Silent Disco: Pre and afterparties on site. Following the festivities of Beyond, those who have the remaining spring in their step that they would have used to drive down the freeway will get the treat of a silent disco until 6AM each night, featuring acts like dynamically creative Discovery Project Alumnus Ryan Lofty and Insomniac’s own Sweet & Low.

Tourists from the Future – EDM Sauce Premiere

RyanLofty_EDMSauce_Tourists

When Ryan Lofty burst on the scene last year with his summer series tracks, I was interested. When I got the chance to see him live at Life is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas, I became captivated. What I did not know is that Lofty had a full album 2 years in the making waiting to be released to the world.

Tourists from the Future has a serene feel which takes you on a journey through space and time. As you can see in this mini-mix, the album eases you in, gets you grooving, cools you off, and then lets you go. Ryan Lofty brings back Bonx and Bestfriends with great performances on the album. American Idol alum Casey Abrams, Vegas local Gary Fowler, and Mansions on the Moon singer Ted Wendler also bring their talents to the table.

Lofty has said this album is a “moment in time that I really just needed to get out to move on as a producer.” With various talents such as piano, percussion, guitar, bass, and trumpet Ryan Lofty is more than a producer/artist. He is a highly talented composer who took his time to develop a cohesive sound.

With bookings at SXSW, Beyond Wonderland, and FlyOver Fashion Festival; and the promise of more singles this summer, Ryan Lofty is really making a name for himself in 2016.

First-Ever Mention on Dancing Astronaut

RyanLofty_DancingAstronaut_LifeisBeautiful

Life Is Beautiful culled both legends and cutting-edge newcomers for the musical component of the three-day event. It seemed just as much effort was put forth in booking an impressive offering of speakers for its educational venue, as well. Indubitably the most popular of these was scientist Bill Nye, who overflowed the Learning venue capacity and also made a surprise appearance at Insomniac’s Troubadour Stage during Ryan Lofty’s set on Friday afternoon.
