Transmission has been established as a premiere Trance festival across the globe. Founded in Prague, it has quickly expanded to Thailand and Australia. The festival is a visual masterpiece. A festival dubbed as producing one of the most prestige lasers shows in the world. It’s an unforgettable, storytelling experience. Every year is a different theme. This year is “The Spirit of the Warrior”.
A Trance Paradise
This year’s lineup is a Trance lover’s dream come true. Transmission’s featured headliners include Aly & Fila, Ferry Corsten’s Gouryella, Markus Schulz’s Dakota, and Purple Haze. Need I say more? Purple Haze is Sander van Doorn’s newly found Trance alter-ego. He is reverting back to his roots with this persona, which genuinely captivates the passion he poured into his new album titled, SPECTRVM. It’s a refreshing resonance of dark euphoric trance. You can check out the entire album on his SoundCloud. Hearing all of these rare aliases in one night combined with the future sounds of the massive Egyptian duo, Aly & Fila, is an experience to be cherished.
A Journey To Prague
I’ll be traveling across Europe for commissioned photography projects. The stars must have perfectly aligned for me to book this flight the same time as Transmission Festival. I had never heard of Transmission until recently. A good ol’ Google search of, “concerts in Prague in November”, did the trick. I booked a one-way flight to Prague on November 25th. This is a must cross-off your bucket list festival.
