Trance and progressive house music star Gareth Emery seems to always be at work on something new, be it music, live performances, funny videos, or cryptocurrency-based ventures. Now, the famed producer and DJ has announced a brand new curated music festival called Metropolis.
Metropolis is a two-stage festival featuring some of trance music's most recognizable names. Along with Emery, fellow trance titans Andrew Rayel, Cosmic Gate, Tritonal, HALIENE, and Ruben De Ronde will be playing sets across both stages. The main stage will play host to the more festival-oriented side of things, while the second room will feature deep sets from each artist.
Emery expressed his excitement at the two-set system: "All of our guests very much enjoy the deeper side of dance music, and we're all buzzing to get to showcase the other side of our sound for you," he said in a Facebook post announcing Metropolis.

"The last time we took over Brooklyn Mirage it was entirely sold out," Emery continued. "Given this is also my our New York reopening show, this is going to be the roadblock of all roadblocks."
