Having grown up in former communist East Berlin, this Grammy-nominated Trance pioneer not only twice graced the #1 spot in the DJ Mag Top100 poll, earning several nominations and awards, but also is a self-proclaimed philanthropist. His political and social involvement also earned him an award from the city of Berlin for his dedication and assistance in helping disadvantaged youths.

JAN JOHNSTON, the successful UK-based female vocalist, is well known for her collaborations not only with PvD, Paul Oakenfold, Cosmic Gate, and Tenishia, but also with multiple artists on the Trance Nation line-up.

From Scandinavia, Finland to be exact, DJ duo SUPER8 & TAB (Miika Eloranta-Super8 and Janne Mansnerus-DJ Tab) will also bring their timeless floor fillers to The Sand on January the 25th.
Of course, what would a Trance party be without the Dutch? National heroes MARCEL WOODS, MENNO DE JONG, RAM and of course, Trance Nation resident CHRIS CORTEZ, are set to give it their all for the ultimate in Trance satisfaction. 2014 is set to be a key year for CHRIS CORTEZ, being set to launch his own label Cortez Records, international gigs, as well as support from major international DJs and producers such as Armin van Buuren and Markus Schulz.
