New Orleans, LA. May 2006

A trip to New Orleans came unplanned, and as most unexpected things, it turned out to be the best by its nature and results. Last week was very eventful. On Monday, I got my Green Card; on Tuesday, I had my first interview on Sirius Radio and on Thursday, I got a promotion at work. Thus, I planned to spend my weekend in a quiet and relaxing way, but a single phone call to Austin on Friday night disrupted all my plans. A few minutes later, I was in a possession of a Jetblue ticket to New Orleans. I was going to see Gabriel and Dresden! After work on Saturday …

Miami, FL. March 2006

http://svetanyc.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/36-190x142.jpg

Where to begin? I want to say, it was one of the most intense and wonderful events in my life – the first true WMC (Winter Music Conference) experience. Wednesday, March 22, 2006 My trip didn’t start smoothly. I ran late for my 6.00 am departure, only to find out that my flight got  rescheduled and all passengers ended up bouncing from one plane to another for almost 6 hours. In the end, instead of arriving to Miami at 9 am and enjoying the sunny Florida weather, I reached my hotel at 4.30 pm.  I was staying at the same hotel in the heart of SoBe as the year before (The Clay Hotel). My girlfriend, Laura, was arriving an hour …

Los Angeles, CA. August 2005

Well, I wasn’t expecting too much from “Tiesto In Concert” in LA, it was the first of Tiesto in Concert franchise in the US out of 5 planned, but only one more in Washington D.C. came to realize; the largest one in New Orleans was cancelled due to Hurricane Katrina. I have seen Tijs plenty of times or lately grown tired of the EDM scene.  Despite my reservations, the trip turned out to be magical. Necessary to say, the last couple of months before the gig, I literally lived in the office and this trip felt like a real escape for me. Thanks Michelle, Payman and Matt for making me …

Las Vegas, NV. May 2005

  Wow!!!!!! Two months has passed since my last party report from Miami’s WMC. Memorial Day weekend turned out to be one of the best experiences in my life. i have to thank Armin van Buuren, Ali “Dubfire” and Sharam (Deep Dish duo DJs from Washington D.C.) and Tiesto for an unbelievable time. And, of course, my friends, who came down to Las Vegas from different parts of the US for this remarkable weekend. At first, I planned to spend a Memorial Day weekend in San Francisco and catch Armin’s set there, but as soon as I found out that Tiesto and Armin would perform on the same weekend at Club …

Miami, FL. March 2005

Well, my very first travel- blog, in fact, has nothing to do with traveling, but with the Winter Music Conference, or as it is more commonly known among tranceaddicts – WMC. Thus, this is my WMC 2005 party report. Wednesday night, March 23, 2005. I came home from work at about 6 pm and couldn’t concentrate on anything, in anticipation of the upcoming trip. After “discovering” electronic dance music and attending multiple gigs at NYC’s famous Avalon, Crobar and Spirit, I finally grew “senior” enough to attend the world’s famous WMC in Miami.  One of the prep-steps was to print a “Ik wil een Nederlands meisje zeij”  t-shirt for Tiesto’s …
