Text by Nick Lawrence (HigherFrequency)

If Miami isn't quite warm enough for you then don't fret because on the 13th of May this year you can head to Sao Paolo, Brazil and check out all the action under the sun at Skol Beats 2006. On stage hoping to catch some rays along with the thousands of screaming fans will be Plump DJs, the Bays, trance demigod Armin van Buuren, ageing tech-rockers the Prodigy, Tiga, LCD Soundsystem, young Swede Steve Angello and Timo Maas.

Last years event saw just a few thousand shy of 60,000 electronic music loving Brazilians turn out for the event and with the lineup announced so far this year looks to be no different. As the name Skol Beats suggests, this South American haven for dance music is run by none other than Brazilian beer company, Skol who have brought the likes of Fatboy Slim and Moby to the country in the past.
