Event: Coachella 2014 [2nd Weekend]

photo_517_0

Tomorrow kicks off the last weekend of Coachella 2014. After seeing tons of videos and pictures from the shows last week, it’s very clear that Coachella is no joke. From Paul McCartney to Jay Z, almost everyone who is anyone in the music world heads to Coachella to party at some point. Even artists who don’t perform just head there to hangout. Last week we saw insane performances from Calvin Harris and Skrillex and legendary sets from Nas and of course OutKast. Rumor has it that Calvin Harris had the second biggest crowd in Coachella history. Drake even made an appearance and noted that this was his first time at Coachella. Next year? Anyways, if you didn’t get to go last week and you’re in the area I would highly recommend it. Just do us a favor and don’t dress like an idiot. For those of you who’s pockets aren’t that deep, the live-stream is always a good option. Below are some more links of stuff that you might find interesting about the festival and a Coachella playlist here.

Event: Budweiser Made In America Festival will be in Philidelphia & LA for 2014

bmia

The Busweiser Made In America Music Festival will be held on two different coasts this year on Memorial Day Weekend (August 30th-31st). Jay Z, along with Budweiser, the mayors of Phili and LA, LiveNation, and the charity United Way will be hosting the event that has grown in popularity over the past few years. After the jump you can see the video preview but the event will have 6 stages in each city and 60 performers. Announcements on the line-ups and such have not been released just yet but we will keep you updated. Last year we saw Jay Z vibing to Deadmau5′ set so who knows what we’ll get this year. Made In America will be the first music festival to be featured simultaneously on both coasts. Hopefully the line-ups are equally as dope and perhaps they will just switch off between Saturday & Sunday. The festival benefits the charity United Way and this year with twice as much music it will hopefully generate twice as much revenue for the cause.

Event: Outside Lands Line-Up Announcement (Aug. 8th-10th in San Francisco)

I’ve been making a list of events like concerts and festivals coming up in the next 3 or 4 months and the list is extensive. For all music lovers, you should find the money and the time to visit at least one music festival this summer. For PTB, we’re trying to find a better way to organize all these and give you guys info on each one so that you can better plan out your summer. For now a post for each will have to do but we’re trying to set up some kind of calendar with info. We’ll keep you posted.

Outside Lands is a late summer event located in the Golden State Park in  San Francisco. In the past six years, they’ve grown tremendously like all other festivals and have offered pretty impressive line-ups. This year they’ve put together a good line-up but not the best one of the summer that I’ve seen. For me, it would be a nice event to go to to maybe find some artists I’ve never seen or heard before. Kanye West is probably their biggest headliner since he’s working on another album right now and will most likely be either debuting new material or playing it for the first time. No release date is set yet for the album. The line-up announcement video above, presented by funnyordie.com, is pretty funny and creative. Hopefully you all get the main joke here…

Event: Electric Adventure [April 12th @ Six Flags, Atlanta]

Screen Shot 2014-03-31 at 10.06.34 PM

Anyone in the GA area should consider planning a date with Six Flags to experience the Electric Adventure venue. Personally, I can’t think of anything better than awesome rides and listening to artists like Adventure Club, DJ Snake, Brillz, Caked Up and more. You can check out the line-up on the site and they say there will be more but other than that the most important thing you need to know is this:

“After the park closes we will keep it open solely for Electric Adventure attendees. This means that festival goers will have the music and the park all to themselves.”

Event: Snowball Music Festival [April 4th-6th, 2014 in Denver, CO]

Screen Shot 2014-03-31 at 3.05.44 PM

We are a little late on posting this but tickets are still available for the Snowball Music Festival and it’s a pretty sick line-up. In my opinion, Knife Party alone is worth the price of the full ticket. If you’re in the area I would definitely go see these guys. They were deeply missed at Ultra this year and the only other venue I see them playing at is Spring Awakening in Chicago later in June. Other artists like Kill The Noise, What So Not, Busta Rhymes, and Kap Slap are also performing but you can check out the full line-up here. Less than a week to get a move on this so good luck!
