R3wire & Varski Look Ahead To This Year's Exit Adventure & Chat To Sigma
Our Club MTV DJs gear up for their European adventure this July plus talk to the chart-topping duo Sigma...
The Festival scene in Europe has blown up in the last few years. One festival in particular has lead the way, The Exit Adventure.
Split over two weekends, The Exit Adventure is a HUGE player in the international Dance music scene. Exit, hosted in Serbia (9-12th July) and its sister festival SeaDance hosted in Montenegro the following weekend (15th-18th July), have grown year on year, and in turn, the line up just seems to get bigger and better – 2015 being no exception.
We would exceed our word count if we were to list the entire star studded line up, but to name a few: Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Faithless, Rudimental, Sigma...and probably our biggest inspiration, The Prodigy.
Yeah we know what you're thinking... Just how can one festival fit so many talents under one line up? Well, they shouldn't be able to. BUT, with the history and ideal behind The Exit Adventure, it seems all talent, even the biggest in the world, just can't say no.
To know we are playing amongst such legends and innovators is mind blowing... BRING IT ON!
We were lucky enough to catch up with one of the acts who will be headlining the SEA DANCE FESTIVAL, as part of the EXIT Adventure.
2014 will be remembered for a number of things. None more so then the rise of Sigma. Here’s what they had to say:
Club MTV: 2014 was a world wind of a year for Sigma. What did you enjoy most about it?
Sigma: "Having two consecutive UK No.1s was really special and something we wouldn't have even dreamed of just a year earlier. It turned out that we had 14 separate No.1s across the world in 2014 so hearing people singing our songs at all the gigs we do in different countries was great!"
Club MTV: We’ve seen your live sets evolve from DJ sets to full on live band performances. What can people expect from the live band aspect that is different from the DJ sets?
S: "We sometimes DJ separately so it will be both of us performing in the live show. We've also got a great drummer and some really amazing guest vocalists joining us on stage. The live show really gives us the opportunity to make the performance our own and we've got a full light show and visuals to go with it to make sure we give our fans something to remember."
Club MTV: So we are looking ahead to the EXIT Adventure, what are you looking forward to the most about Sea Dance? How do u think it differs from other festivals globally?
S: "The crowds in Europe really know how to enjoy themselves and that makes it so enjoyable to perform at these events. Not many festivals in the region have the same draw as EXIT and Sea Dance has made really big moves in a short space of time. They've had some great acts in the past and this year looks like another big line up!"
Club MTV: What do we have to look forward to for the rest of 2015 from you guys?
S: "We've got plans to release our debut album in the summer, we've been working on it for a while now and it's really coming together to be something special. We've also got plenty of festival dates coming up in the summer and we'll keep touring around the world throughout the year!"
Sigma are ready to take 2015 by storm and we are so excited to see them play live this year at Sea Dance. It’s going to be EPIC!
