“In the regular world, Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy…”
In Music Festival World, is just another night where boys and girls can dress up as whatever they like and no one can say anything about it… The hard-core ragers turn on their LED gadgets while they step into their party dimension and stay hydrated. Fortunately for us, this was not our first rodeo.
We gathered our Halloween gear and got to Indy’s hottest event/concert venue, The Pavilion at Pan Am Plaza, for Haunted Fest, Indy edition. WE were extra excited for A) Haunted Fest 2016 was so much fun, we loved it, B) it’s was here, INDY!! Which we’re so happy to see more of our favorite types of show come through our city, and C) Our close friend Jason Barth opened the show!
The Pavilion at the Pan Am Plaza is huge, great warehouse vibe with multiple elevated VIP areas, an ultra VIP area (that could use less lighting and more bass, give it that ultra lounge exclusivity) and bars (for the 21+) all through out. We did missed the silent disco, the outside little plaza would be ideal, plus it would make for the perfect spot to cool down.
Cash Cash rocked the stage with remixes of classic 90’s electronic beats. They rocked a killer mix of Eurythmics -Sweet Dreams, Nelly’s Ride with me and lots of their originals. Their vibe is always so dope and they put on a great show every time. Waka Flocka Flame, for us, totally changed the vibe… Personally, really into his music, but the crowed loved him. He does put on a fun interactive show. He brings his pose up on stage and got the crown hyped. Now, Yellow Claw, that’s totally up or wheel of loving. It’s amazing how music can transport you to a different time and place. I found myself dancing at Ultra Music Festival or Spring Awakening when some of his songs would play. That’s thing about musicians (Yes! I believe DJs/Producers are musicians), if you love them, they take you on an amazing journey with their songs and performances.
Haunted Fest 2017 was a huge success for us. The Pavilion downtown Indy is amazing and we’re so excited to see all the upcoming shows they have in store for us! Check out our Haunted Fest pix below.

Didn’t make it to the Indy 500 Snake Pit? You missed out!
The rager kicked off at 7am when the Snake pit at the IMS, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, open it’s gates to ticket holders. Mind you… the race, the 101 run of the Indianapolis 500 – the greatest spectacle in racing, officially started at 12:20pm. That’s 5+ hours of pre-race raving. 5!!!! So yes, the people watching was a show of it’s own. What really brings us to the snake pit, year after year, is the music. Over the last 5 years (since we started attending), the DJs who’ve taken over the Snake Pit stage have been some of the biggest in the electronic music world and this year was no different. The Trap House, Adventure Club, Action Bronson, RL Grime & Marshmello and ZEDD provided the beats for our memorial day weekend.
Another Indy 500 Snake Pit for the books! Check out the pix and don’t forget to tell us about your Snake Pit experience!!!
It’s officially Indy 500 Snake Pit month (Well, alright, it’s really Indianapolis 500 month, but you know what we mean)!!!! Tickets are going fast, like 25% left.

Last year was epic… This year, it’s going to be out of this world!!!! The beats will start dropping at 7am, pre-race, and will continue through the Indy 500 race. So, clear your calendars for Memorial day, Sunday If you haven’t already, you ca, May 28, 2017! Make sure you purchase your tickets here:http://bit.ly/Snake_Pit17 and you can watch the official lineup announcement video from our friends at React Presents below.
Last couple of years the snake pit sold out… so hurry your butts up and purchase your tickets!!
We arrived to the show a little after 10, 10:30ish really. We picked up our tickets and headed straight to the room… or so we thought! After the door peeps scanned our tickets, no one gave us directions as to where the show was. So we went upstairs (the Old National Center has multiple rooms and levels) to the room we’ve always seen shows at. We walked in and on stage was Mac Miller… We thought this was an interesting opener for Seven Lions, but we also thought that he’s a pretty forward thinking musician so why not.
At about 11pm, or a little after, Mac Miller ends the show… and just like that, the crowed rushes out and the lights come one. UUHHHHHH no no sir! We’re here to see Seven Lions and it’s only 11:05pm. WTF! We walked up to one of the bars and asked if we were in the wrong place… and sure enough, we were! We were instructed to go all the way down to the basement.
We walked down, after fighting through the masses of Mac Miller fans… which BTWs he rocked the stage (not a rap type of guy here, but bro knows how to put on a good show! We digged it!)… So get down to the correct space and we hear the electro thump, the crowd is totally different and once we we walk in the vibe was totally different!
Grum was setting the vibe with some awesome beats. A little all over the place, but also all over the place in a good way. He went from mixing top 40 to some oldies to some deep house to some trap and dubstep… Nice job! Pegboard Nerds followed, never seen them before but enjoyed their trap vibe. Personally, they reminded us of the good old grunge days of the 90s (not their sound, but their vibe). Their beats were fun and up-beat. Seven Lions hits the stage with major graphics and of course incredible beats. He dropped some of our all time favorites and newbies (at least to us). All in all, these guys rocked it! Great show and what an awesome way to enter the December holidays! The Journey tour may be over, but the you can still catch Seven Lions at shows… Next one is on January 28th!
The year is pretty much over… crazy! OMG that’s so crazy!!!! It feels like yesterday we were getting ready to head down to our NYE home (CÎROC The New Year Indianapolis, IN) for our annual end of year celebration. For the last 6+ years CÎROC The New Year Indianapolis has offered us a space to get glammed up for, to spend time with our close friends, to dance in style, create memories with family and to introduce the party to Indianapolis Newbies. This year will be different, why?! Well A) The attention it’s generating this year is above average B) The energy from the CÎROC The New Year Indianapolis promotions team is on point and C) The Boys of Raannt are giving away 2 tickets to 4 lucky winners to walk down the red carpet with us, snap pics and join our VIP table at the all inclusive CÎROC The New Year 2016 | Indianapolis, IN!
For us here in Indy, the day is almost here… Seven Lions will rock our ever so loved Old National Center with his killer show. We literally haven’t seen him since TomorrowWorld 2015 when we had the pleasure of interviewing him. Here’s what we’re excited about: A) That Seven Lions is coming to Indy and B) that it’s a late show! There’s nothing sexier than a end of week rager to kick start your weekend!
Tickets for the last leg of the tour are still available and listen… don’t take just take it from us, check out the vid clip bellow, but Seven Lions is a good time… Like a really good time!
So this was cool… 1st time stepping into a tour bus!! We felt super cool! Chris & Jon were incredibly welcoming and friendly and cool dudes for sure! As we entered the bus (trying to stay cool, cuz you know it was our first time hanging with celebrities in their own personal space) the Texans & Patriots game was on two big screen tvs on each side of the bus. Providing the perfect, not really, lighting for our FacebookLive session with the guys.
So we talked about their shows, how they meat, music, future collaborations, what to expect from the Safe in Sound Music Festival and of course how they each define sexy. Check out our FacebookLive (Don’t forget to like us for more DJ interviews) session 👆🏽above👆🏽 and our audio interview 👇🏽bellow👇🏽:
Another night another rager? Hahahah well, we don’t rage as often as we would like to but let’s just say that Safe In Sound Music Festival provided a great reason (and music) to rage! The 3 year old traveling festival teamed up with Borgore to lead a pack of incredible DJs onto a 25 city tour. Allowing fans to experience the music festival on their own social playgrounds. Each city features a different set of DJs (sometimes not, but it has a great artist rotation) for a unique experience. For the Indianapolis chapter we had ETC(!) ETC(!), TERRAVITA, Zomboy & Borgore and were able to clock some one on one chats with the cool kids from TERRAVITA and the man himself Borgore! Each DJ was great and played some exciting tunes, some dropped new tracks and others really pumped up the energy of the crowd. So here’s to the many Safe In Sound Music Festivals left and if one is close to you or hitting your hometown, make sure you go!!!!!!
