Bangkok’s premier electronic music promoters, AG Productions, Retox Sessions join forces with Contango and the leader of music trend setter, YOU2PLAY, to bring back the much-awaited electronic music festival with the world’s hottest acts and full-blown production. Having mesmerized the audiences last year with megastars like Snoop Dogg, Justice, An21, Max Vangeli, Quintino and more,You2Play Together Festival will again this year promise a stellar line-up to blow away dance music enthusiasts with the Title sponsor of Bacardi : Untameable Since 1862 and main sponsor Singha Corperation.
A not-to-be-missed act at You2Play Together Festival will be the debut of MAKJ. Hailed as one of the next rising stars in the electronic dance music world, Mackenzie Johnson is a name to watch. The prominent up-and-coming DJ/producer uncovered a passion for mixing and DJing at the age of 15. He later found himself repeatedly invited to DJ countless local university and community college events in his hometown before the late DJ AM trained him to scratch. With residency at XS Las Vegas and performances at Ultra Music Festival and TomorrowWorld, MAKJ is also thriving as a producer. He has released a slew of hit tracks over the course of 2013, including “Countdown”, a collab with Hardwell on his Revealed label which went #1 on Beatport after three days.
Boasting a global following of millions, DJ Bl3nd will leave his L.A. home to explode his signature high-energy mix. Driven by his passion to spin the music he loved for a larger audience, DJ Bl3nd began handing out mix-tapes to local clubs and promoters in 2009. However, he had a difficult time grabbing anyone’s attention until he began posting live videos of himself dancing and spinning energy-filled, hard-hitting beats in his now-signature mask on YouTube. In less than three short years, he has become a sensation. Now with sold-out shows throughout America, DJ Bl3nd will mix his crowd-pleasing concoction at this shindig.
Another Despite a busy year with lots of productions, remixes, a slew of gigs at festivals and clubs and a world tour with Afrojack, D-wayne won’t miss the opportunity to join You2Play Together Festival.

His records are released on Nervous, the oldest house label in the world, on Steven Aoki’s Dim Mak, Spinnin’ Records and currently on Wall Recordings, Afrojack’s record label.
Also having releases on labels like Spinnin Records, Afrojack’s Wall Recordings and Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak and remixes for Laidback Luke, Sidney Samson, the Bingo Players and Hardwell under his belt is Abdesamad Ben Abdelaouid, better known as Apster. He is now a new talent that definitely stands out from all other DJ/producers that the Dutch house scene has to offer. In the past year, Apster teamed up with Holland’s biggest dance export product of the moment, Afrojack. After his track “Bubble Gutz” on Wall Recordings, he remixed Afrojack’s “Take Over Control ft. Eva Simons” and produced “Brougham / Contour”, two tracks Apster made together with Bassjackers. His latest project is a collaboration with Nicky Romero “Bootcamp” also featured on Wall Recordings.
