All our raver fans will love this movie. It's based on an EDM festival called XOXO during which six 20-somethings' lives collide in an adventure where one up-and-coming DJ gets a last-minute chance to perform at the festival - if he can make it there on time. You can find some big names like Sarah Hyland from Modern Family and Ryan Hansen from 2 Broke Girls.

The Get Down (Season 1) coming August 12th

Based in 1970's New York, this feel good series follows six rambunctious teens through their lives in the Bronx. A big name in this series is Jaden Smith, but he only appears in less than half the episodes - 6 out of the 13, to be specific.

Bottersnikes and Gumbles (Season 1) coming August 19th

This animation is the television adaptation of a popular book series Bottersnikes & Gumbles, which follows the adventures of lazy Bottersnikes and diligent Gumbles - representations of those who destroy the environment and those who help preserve it. Although it was first shown in Australian in December, Netflix gained exclusive rights to several seasons. This series will not be available in Netflix UK, IE, AU, NZ and JP.

Project Mc2 (Season 2) coming August 12th

A live-action children's series that debuted in 2015, Project Mc2 is the story of teenage spy McKeyla and her squad of genius friends who use science and tech skills to save the day. As their slogan suggests, "smart is the new cool."
