Berlin-based DJ Paul van Dyk has just announced an appearance at the Cow Palace May 23, as part of the ETD POP festival, an electronic music extravaganza (okay, it's a rave) sponsored by Skills Workshop, expected to draw 10,000 people to the same venue once popular among arena rock acts and rodeos. Along with Van Dyk, whose greatest-hits compilation Volume drops June 1st, the scheduled lineup includes Derrick Carter, Ferry Corsten, Deadmaus, Andy Caldwell, Flosstradamus, and N.A.S.A.
In what promises to be even more exciting news for ravers and electronic music afocionados, van Dyk has announced a new iPod Touch/iPhone software program, called the PvD DJ App, which allows users to simulate everything from a beat counter to a decibel meter to a glow stick. The app, which costs $1.99 to download, will be available on iTunes May 1st. To watch a video of van Dyk demonstrating his app, click here.
