  1. Just saw this:


    Dekmantel has announced its return to Sao Paulo for another two day festival. For its second edition, the Amsterdam festival’s sister event is moving to a new venue called Playcenter, a former theme park that’s been abandoned since 2012.


    Nina Kraviz, Four Tet, Marcel Dettmann, Floating Points, Midland and Peggy Gou will be making the trip to Playcenter, in Sao Paulo, Brazil to deliver a mind-blowing mix of contemporary electronic music.


    Joining them at the abandoned park will be the Brazilian musicians Marcos Valle and Os Mulheras Negras, whilst a fair share of regulars such as Antal, Lena Willikens and Palms Trax will return to the fold.


    The event which will take place across March 3 and 4 next year will be held in collaboration with the Brazilian label Gop Tun.

    This year’s Dekmantel Festival takes place at a location that’s part of the collective memory of many generations who grew up in this city. São Paulo’s Playcenter, a now abandoned and overgrown concrete jungle, awaits two days of cutting-edge music and includes loads of our favourite artists. Dekmantel and their dear friends of Gop Tun will be the first to revive the nostalgic place that was once the domain of rollercoasters, into an exciting new festival site. It’s a privilege to be back in Sao Paulo, a place that already feels like home.

    CBeebies will come to Alton Towers this spring after Worldwide struck a deal with Merlin Entertainments, the owner of the UK's no. 1 theme park.


    The deal means that CBeebies will get a dedicated five acres at the park in 2014 - the first of its kind in the UK - that will bring to life some of the preschool channel's most-loved characters.


    CBeebies Land will include rides, immersive play areas, live experiences and character experiences.


    The branded space will include seasonal events and be updated frequently so 'that no two visits to CBeebies Land will be the same', according to a BBC Worldwide press release.


    It's not yet clear which CBeebies characters will make appearances at the theme park - the BBC doesn't hold exclusive rights to all of them - but it's expected that favourites from In The Night Garden and Postman Pat will be included.


    Marcus Arthur, the UK's managing director of Worldwide, says, 'CBeebies Land will be a fun and exciting way for children and adults to immerse themselves in and explore the CBeebies environment and to enjoy their favourite characters.'


    Joe Godwin, director of BBC Children's, adds: 'CBeebies has long been the number one TV channel for preschool children and their families, but we also know that these days they want to be able to have days out and happy memories with their favourite characters in the real world as well.'
