Here is all you need to know about the sad tragedy that happened last night in Austin, TX. Austin has loved the contribution and attention from the SXSW and it’s a real shame that someone decided to drive drunk and ruin that night. CNN’s coverage gives a little more insight. Prays up to all the victims.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking… “Dillstradamus” is real. Line-Up looks pretty solid and the venue should be incredible. Still only two days of music but without a doubt worth the money and the drive to Bethel Woods, NY. Hit the links below for tickets and information.
Electric Daisy Carnival is making massive strides to make this year the biggest year they’ve had in shows. From their first debut in 2012, EDC has been jumping from venue to venue in hopes of finding a perfect home. In 2012, Insomniac had the event take place in MetLife Stadium. In 2013, things changed a little with the announcement of Citi Fields. And this year, we’re back where they started.
With pretty stiff competition from Mysteryland just a few hours north in Bethel Woods, NY, EDC definitely wants to come out as the victor of the battle of the festivals. This trailer definitely shows their efforts.
One of the worlds biggest (not size wise) artists announced yesterday that he will be dropping his highly anticipated sophomore album on the 3rd of March. Holy balls that’s like 2 weeks away. Pharrell has been killing it ever since the beginning of 2013 with features on Daft Punk’s R.A.M., production on Magna Carta Holy Grail, and his contribution to the success of the Despicable Me 2 film which killed at the box office. Recently he’s been teasing us with new hits, features on the new Major Lazer EP, and with dope performances at The Grammy’s and the NBA All Star Game. Literally the last thing this guy has down is release his won album. G I R L - 2 Weeks people; album will feature 10 tracks including “Happy”. We’ll keep you posted. P.S. he’s a super nice guy.
Last night at a performance in New Orleans Drake couldn’t help but give away the big news. Supposedly the Young Money marketing team was going to use the surprise tactic that a lot of artists have been using lately to release Tha Carter V but not anymore. Rumored to be about 6 to 8 songs finished on the album and that Wayne has picked up his work ethic to make this album the best out of the whole Carter saga. The Best Rapper Alive does have the potential to blow everyone away but will he bring it? May 5th.
Ultra Music Festival is making massive preparations for their big weekend. Last year, they went out with a bang by celebrating their 15th year anniversary by introducing 2 separate weekends. Of course, the people at UMF want to only make the event bigger and better. One highlight of their lineup is Jack U, a collaboration between the leader of the OWSLA Crew, Skrillex, and the king of Mad Decent, Diplo.
