Whats your opinion of Markus, and other DJs, sets at commercial festivals like EDC,UMF as compared to sets performed @ clubs in cities like NY, Miami, SF, international anre regularly featured on GDJB ?

Personally, I think the tracks played at festivals tend to be more "big-name" tunes, less programming and building up a set, cut-off after 5 minutes, whereas club-sets tend to feature a lot of underground tracks, have more emotional range, and ebb-flow of musical variation.

Well, for festivals Djs are on a timeslot, therefor they have to deliver a set that people at the festival are gonna react to, and remember.

Compare to club nights where the Dj can play for 4-6 hours and there you can hear what specific sound a Dj has by playing songs on their repertoire normally not heard in a festival set.
