Thank you everyone who joined us at Fort Calgary for Chasing Summer 2014.

We saw 29 000 of you lose yourself in the music during our two day visit to Fort Calgary, making Chasing Summer the largest outdoor electronic dance music festival in Western Canada. Your energy was overwhelming, and we thank our venue hosts and the surrounding community for their hospitality.

We heard astounding performances from Tiësto, Hardwell, Sander Van Doorn, New World Punx, and Adventure Club on our main stage, while our Sunrise Stage was also a massive hit, showcasing amazing sets from Oliver Heldens, Killparis, and many more.

We are equally pleased that our proven safety and security measures, developed with various agencies, worked exactly as it should have. All of us at Union Events take our Fan First mandate very seriously, and we will continue to make your enjoyment and wellbeing our top priority at our shows.

So many memories are behind us now. But we’re already dreaming of what’s ahead. We hope you are, too.

ANDREW RAYEL headlines official CALGARY pre-party!

CSMF2014-PREPARTY-CGY-RAYEL-FB

CALGARY! CSMF2013 alumni performer and Armada recording artist ANDREW RAYEL headlines the official Chasing Summer 2014 pre-party on Thursday August 7th at Marquee Beer Market & Stage!

Tickets are on sale now at UnionEvents.com or here.

Often called ‘the new Armin van Buuren’, it’s no surprise that Andrew Rayel indeed found the support of the man himself. Having the number one DJ supporting his tracks on the world famous A State of Trance radio show has ever been a dream of Andrew. And sometimes, dreams come true. His tracks ‘550 Senta’, ‘How Do I Know’ ft. Jano, ‘Aeon of Revenge’, ‘Aether’, ‘Deflagration’, ‘Musa’ and ‘Zeus’ all made it to the show, often voted Tune of the Week and Future Favourite. The trance scene embraced Andrew’s refreshing sound, giving him a very warm welcome.

His tracks found a solid home on the A State of Trance and Armind labels, both part of the Armada Music family. Impressed by his originals, it didn’t take long until the Rayel sound became hot property for remixes. And so, Andrew was lucky enough to handle remix duties for tracks by Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Dash Berlin, Tiësto, W&W, Zedd, Bobina, Tenishia and many more. Earning the support of the DJ elite, the Rayel sound has spread all across the globe, from the underground clubs to the mainstream festivals.

Though his career is fairly young, Andrew has already DJ’ed the world’s most legendary clubs and massive festivals. From Kazantip, Global Gathering, Trancefusion, Ball En Blanc, Trancemission and Ministry of Sound to multiple A State of Trance 600 events, the A State of Trance Ibiza nights at Privilege and the world-famous Monday Bar cruise. As a result of his hard work and dedication, fans voted him #77 in the DJ Mag Top 100 of 2012 which paid off in 2013 by being voted as “Highest Climber” ranking him at #28.

Same goes for the highly anticipated Andrew Rayel debut album. Set for release on Armada Music, trance land eagerly holds their breath, craving more of Andrew’s magic dancing dust. A little pre-taste of what’s to come, is Andrew’s very first and official compilation: ‘Mystery of Aether’. Out on Armada Music in early September 2013, it’s Rayel doing what he does best. He moves us.
