Stereosonic is the last big festival of the year 2013, and one of the biggest in the whole world. It's a virtual EDM mecca in the Land Down Under—sort of like Ultra, EDC, HARD, and Creamfields all rolled into one colossal party. While half of the world starts battening down the hatches for winter and putting on their blizzard jackets, hundreds of thousands of party people rage in a land where summer is in full swing. it's fair to say every dance music fan from Siberia to San Francisco would give their left fuzzy boot to be there.
But even if you can't swing the 2409-hour flight through 15 different time zones, you can still watch 48 hours of the world's biggest DJs dropping the world's biggest beats straight from Sydney. THUMP has partnered with DANCE (RED) to bring you a livestream from the festival's two main stages this weekend.
This whole thing kicks off this Saturday, November 30th and runs through the end of the day on Sunday, December 1st (World AiDS Day weekend). So call up all your friends, plug in some speakers, dim the lights, and party on as David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Tommy Trash, Gareth Emery, Armin van Burren, Afrojack and many more ignite the madness. No this won't cost anything—and yes, you can thank us later. (Scroll down for the entire show lineup.)
Because it's not costing you anything, why not donate to DANCE (RED), which is mobilizing partygoers like you to help fight the spread of AIDS in Africa. Here's how:
