Paul van Dyk will be hosting his biggest We Are One event to date this year and has just announced the wave of artists which includes Max Graham, Genix, Maarten De Jong and Eric Prydz…
While we may never see a third Politics of Dancing compilation you can still see Paul van Dyk live as he heads through Germany and America this month and into May. He announced the first wave of artists to support him at his 2014 ‘We Are One’ festival on the 16th August. It’s a festival that has been growing each and every year with the 2014 edition set to be the biggest yet with more artists to be announced soon. It’s still a one day event and set in the beautiful surroundings of Spandau Citadel in the heart of Berlin.
WE ARE ONE 2014 - HEADLINE ACTS ANNOUNCED
Paul van Dyk announced the first round of DJs joining him in the surrounds of Berlin's famous Zitadelle Spandau for the third We Are One Festival. Among those joining van Dyk for the 2014 festival will be Swedish-born/LA-based spot-rocking-master Eric Prydz.
Also taking the stage at the height of the Berlin summertime will be many VANDIT Records knights, with tech-trance mavericks Genix and Maarten de Jong keeping the speakers exactly the right side of roasting! Local lad Chris Bekker will be turning on the house taps, while Canada's Max Graham will be ensuring that W.A.O.'s progressive ante is similarly well-upped!
The festival ticket includes entrance to the festival but no access to the After-Show Party. All VIP packages include 1x admission via fast lane, access to the VIP area, a welcome drink and an exclusive bundle with the "From Berlin With Love" shirt and backpack. All VIP Gold packages also include access to the After-Show Party.

NEW CRUSH REMIX BY LAS SALINAS
10 years ago, it first put a squeeze on club floors and now, Paul van Dyk's 'Crush' is back! Until now, the much-treasured lead track from his GRAMMY award nominated 'Reflections' album never had an official remix sanctioned.
Las Salinas reimagined 'Crush' beginning with a prog-trance zone and deep, thunderous and resonant tones. With its deep bongs, super-echoing panned FX and swimming pads, it finally relents to the tide of soaring strings, big ripped riffs and hard 'Crush' chimes.
