Magna Carta Takes over Saturday's at Sankeys Ibiza.
Magna Carta can make claim to being one of the jewels in the clubbing crown in Ibiza. Situated at the bustling powerhouse that is Sankeys Ibiza and just in time for 2014 season, the Magna Carta crew have just announced their full weekly line up announcements. Originally beginning life in London, Sankeys Ibiza hosted the crew last year with a series of sell out shows ringing through punters’ ears. Magna Carta’s scripture is simple – fresh artists, innovative parties and sharp, discerning vibes.
It’s just as well then, as they begin life on Saturday 7th June with gangsta house don Phil Weeks, Ramon Tapia and techno royalty Samu.L . Over the course of the season, they invite many names big and small, including Pirupa, Sante, Tim Green, Jordan Peak and more over the coming months.

Farr Festival may sound like its worlds away from the smog filled metropolis of London. Surrounded by an enclosed woodland space, deep in the Essex countryside, Farr Festival seeks to take the festival-goer on an immersive musical experience, featuring cutting edge sound, music and installation in an event that feels a million miles away from home. But it’s not… it’s right on our doorstep, meaning there’s no excuse whatsoever to head down and get lost in the woods for three days of serious hedonism.
Celebrating five years in the business, Farr Festival 2014’s line up is their largest yet, planting electronic names such as Scuba, Tom Trago, Kim Ann Foxman and Ame live alongside more bassier heroes such as dBridge, Marcus Intalex and South London Ordnance. From their humble beginnings in 2008 (centered around a broken down caravan that eventually evolved into a stage) to holding reputation as one of the coolest boutique festivals in the country, Farr festival’s magic lies in the rich, rolling countryside and secluded feel that centers around its core.
Last year's craziness
In the run up to the festival, we’ve got an exclusive prize to give away to 3 lucky MEOKO fans specially branded, bespoke Farr Festival x Dr Banana baseball caps, to ensure that you stay fresh and cool this Summer (we don’t mean your hygiene habits either). In order to impress your friends and bag one of these exclusive head garments, all you have to do is Like and Share THIS IMAGE.

What happens when you mix one of the biggest live electronic acts in modern music and combine them with one of the most reliable and trusted compilation brands in the world? Fireworks. And lots of them.
As German ensemble Brandt Bauer Frick prepare to release the 48th installment (yes, the 48th!) in !K7's ubiquitous DJ Kicks! mix series, popular London party Ubermax continue the fine run of form that defined their 2013 parties by inviting the trio to London for an intimate party at Hackney Wick's Autumn Street Studios on May 9th. Laying down their instruments in favour of turntables, they will play back-to-back for 4 hours straight, no doubt delivering the same intricate and unique track selection that can be found on their forthcoming mix. They'll be supported by Ubermax residents CHVK and Sigmund K on the evening, and of course, Ubermax's faithful crowd who have helped to make the brand one of the coolest underground promoters in the city today.
MEOKO are furnishing with one of our lucky faithful with the chance to win a finished copy of the DJ kicks! compilation, plus 4 tickets for you to treat your friends to a nice night out. All you have to do is answer the following question:
Who mixed the very first instalment of the DJ Kicks! series in 1997?

The modern day festival goer is spoiled for choice when deciding upon locations and brands to put their pennies, inhibitions and trust into. While many of us Brits travel abroad to the likes of Croatia, Spain and even further afield (thanks in part to the widespread introduction of cheap air travel), it seems that we sometimes forget that our own shores have more than its fair share of reasons to maintain its claim as the home of festivals. As EDM blows up and rains down over-plumped 'festivals' across the states and beyond, it's refreshing to see the UK carrying the torch for the more adventurous, escapist type - in the electronic music world, they've been trying to fill the void that the much-loved Glade electronic music festival sadly left behind a few years back.
With Glastonbury, Bestival and V festival aside, you could go as far as to say the UK market loves a small and intimate boutique festival, with some hitting their stride for their second or even third year on the trot. Noisily Festival of Music and Arts burst onto the scene last year with an unashamedly clear mission statement - to bring the most diverse and eclectic line up of global electronic music, both underground and overground, to the fore, mixed with cutting edge design and art installations, in amongst the beautiful and secluded Leicestershire forest, allowing for an event that's driven on hedonism, escapism and most of all enjoyment for a full weekend that rises well above your average 'festival in a field' stereotype.
Lest we forget, the musical fare on offer isn't half bad either... Greg Wilson, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Session Victim and Gaudi all play, joined by the likes of sonic alchemist Max Cooper, Scottish techno titans Slam, Dutch breaks master 2562 and tonnes more heavy hitting music from all forms of music and beyond, playing across three stages (including one dubbed The Tree House Stage and the return of an old Glade festival favourite, The Liquid Stage), backed up by a further host of nano areas and zones included for your frivolously decadent pleasure.

"We move when we want, where we want, with no rhyme or reason. Our only aim is to be bigger and better than the rest, appealing to only the most open-minded reveller..."
Such is the mantra of Under The Tree, a nomadic party based on impulse, authenticity and the element of surprise. Back for the first time in 2014, Under The Tree presents an Easter Special party on Thursday the 17th of April which will be just what it says on the tin – damn special. Setting up camp in the warehouse venue Loft Studios (where it all began), UTT will be boasting a creatively planned light, laser and 3D visual show to accompany booming beats, which will be reaching your ears through a state of the art Funktion One sound system.

All sounds pretty rosy, but it’s not a party without the music-makers right? Under The Tree have teamed up with Visionquest to secure a stellar line-up for this event. Manning the tables will be Visionquest head honcho Lee Curtiss and fellow compatriot Ryan Crosson, Fabric’s youngest resident and Leftroom Records extraordinaire Matt Tolfrey, Simon Baker, who has recently partnered with Geddes to create the label Nofitstate, with support from Ibellini, The Mendendez Brothers and Felon (live). Hard to go wrong with that dream-team – we’re confident that between them they will pull out a solid collection of unforgettable dance floor moments.
Memories are great, but why not throw in some more lasting reminders of the brilliant sets to come? Let’s face it, things can get a little blurry after a few jars… MEOKO and Under the Tree have put together a generous prize pack for one lucky winner – we hope you like free vinyl!
The prize inclues:
2 x Nofitstate vinyl (001 Simon Baker -Arpy Ep Skudge remix and 002 Matthew Styles - Signals EP)
3 x Visionquest vinyl (VQ036, VQ040 and VQSE003)
