Garrix told ERR he is dreaming of a massive solo shows and working on an album. His main goal, however, is to DJ for decades to come.

AronChupa too, who shot to the top of the charts with his quirky “I'm an albatraoz”, said he has some new material.

Chase & Status, on the other hand, which has a staple presence in music charts, is working on what will be their fourth album, due to be released in 2016. The new album will draw from their best work and feature some new exciting artists.

Rudimental, meanwhile, which is also adding finishing touches to its next studio album, dreams of headlining Glastonbury one day.
